Blogging, as Randy has told me repeatedly, is something that needs to be tended to on a daily basis.
Problem is, I don’t have something sparkling and witty or wise to say every day. I don’t even have anything vaguely interesting to say every day (witness the fact that it has been more than a month and a half since I’ve attempted to post!)
Moreover, I am, where my writing is concerned, a perfectionist. I don’t particularly care whether school papers and books stay piled on the living room floor for several days; if they don’t make noise, I don’t really notice them. But when it comes to words — I want everything “just so” and I am only far too aware of how far below my ability the blog writing I’ve done actually comes.
I beat myself up over it regularly and have mostly talked myself into abandoning the blog altogether.
However, life goes on, and maybe I needed a break from this sort of writing for a while. The last couple of days, however, I’ve been thinking about a lot of things and the accompanying idea to them all has been “hmmm, ya know, I oughta blog about that!”
So here I am.
I’m utterly astonished that anyone has actually continued to READ this thing while I’ve been M.I.A. — and thank you for that. I make no promises about trying harder or doing better… I’ll just do my best while I’m up to it, okay?
God bless you!
