It’s been a long time since I felt like blogging. Oh, I’m not talking about the quick jots on Facebook, (which I love BTW), but actual sit down and write things out kind of blogging. Truth be told, I’m out of practice, and also, it feels like a lot of work to sit down and write something out that I think people might want to read.
Back when I was younger, before I started editing and writing for an online magazine, and several periods of burnout/depression/exhaustion ago, blogging was easier. Now, it just seems like one more thing to add on the TO DO list.
“Do people still read blogs?” Someone asked me that question this week. I’m honestly not sure, but with Facebook continuing to be it’s own weird self, (hello Facebook outage 3/13/19!) and people dropping off of it, it seems prudent to return to blogging at my own site, and sharing my thoughts here as well as on Facebook.
So here I am, trying to blog here regularly again, after a 10 year hiatus. I’m hoping at some point to be able to move things over from my Facebook page, like giving the Advent calendars a permanent home and posting research again. But that all takes time, which is in chronic short supply with a toddler and homeschooling a 12 year old.
