Yes, it really has been that long since I last posted. And yes, as unlikely as it may seem. I have returned.
Life is full of roadblocks. Although I can’t give you exact details. I hit one in September. It fundamentally changed my day-to-day life. Blogging got pushed out.
But now I am back. Here are a few things I have learned in the past month or so that will hopefully help my blogging career.
I really, really enjoy blogging
After going a while without blogging, I began to realize that I really missed it. Every single day I wanted to go back to the good ol’ blog and publish some more posts. But I didn’t. I had the time, but I chose to use it for other things. I think it was a big mistake. And I hope to rectify it.
I have a lot more to say
Since I published my first post back in March of 2011, I have written quite a few words. 50,000 of them in fact (just enough for a Nanowrimo novel!). Some of my writing even got me on a relatively popular podcast (which was pretty awesome). However all that is in the past. The future is what is before me. I have plenty more to say. 50,00 words isn’t enough. I’m aiming for 500,000.
I do have the time
When I first stopped, I rationalized it away by saying I didn’t have the time. But as I continued through my life, I began to realize that time was not the problem. I really had no excuse for not bloggin. If I want to I can make it happen.
So What’s Next?
Lots more writing. In fact, after this post, I want to continue on as if nothing had happened. Unfortunately (and naturally enough) my traffic has taken a big hit. But I can rebuild it. My google rankings have remained relatively intact, which is awesome. So that’s a big bonus. But it will take a while to rebuild.
Look for a post in the next day or so!
