I have many, many drafts of posts and nothing on my blog since my husband's birthday in November. Why? I would love to say it's only because life got in the way or because Blogger didn't want to post my scheduled posts. Which is part of the reason.
The larger reason is that I took a break from blogging so I could reflect on what I want this space to be. In 2009 and 2010 I started many topics that I didn't follow up on here. Great topics that I think have a lot of value for me to write about and for others to read. I wasn't able to find my rhythm and I wasn't very good at follow through. Which is odd because I am a project manager and implementation is the name of the game at work.
So I took a break and asked myself why I was blogging. What was the purpose? What message did I want to send out to the blogsphere? How did I want readers to perceive me and my words?
I don't have a complete and total answer yet. Time is something precious that I don't have a lot of so I need to be smart about my blogging. And if I continue I want to be consistent. It's only fair to you and easier for me - less guilt at not posting and all that.
Advent, the religious and spiritual season we are in, is a time of reflection for me, so I'm taking the time to reflect, ponder, and to determine a course of action. I'll share what I come up with, I promise! In the meantime, thanks for sticking with me. I appreciate it, and you!
