So, it’s been a while since I’ve done any serious writing for my blog, but now that it’s a new year, it’s time to get back to writing often. It’s been an odd couple of months though in terms of material.
The last major thing I posted was about my (no longer) secret relationship with Max, and that post stimulated a lot of interesting conversations within my circles of friends. Many of those conversations resulted in me stopping to think and reflect, and a lot of those thoughts I just didn’t want to share on my blog, in part because I didn’t feel like I had digested it all well enough to formulate cogent posts, and in part because I wanted to write about something besides specifically what has developed between Max and me. And while there were other things to write about, frequently friends asked that I not post those particular stories on my blog. I respectfully did not post anything, but not doing so meant losing some interesting material. That, in turn, left me with thoughts and events related to the Max situation, and I just didn’t want to launch back into all that.
And let’s not forget that there was also a bit of a lazy streak in there as well. I slacked off (and by that I mean I stopped) on reading other blogs that provide inspiration and insight, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because my focus was elsewhere. In fact, I realized a few days ago that while I’d occasionally checked in on my favorites, I hadn’t read any other blogs on my iPad since June. And I figured that out when I realized that the reason my RSS reader on my iPad wasn’t loading anything because Google Reader had been disabled in the middle of June. Yeah, I definitely didn’t like how that realization felt.
But the fire is burning again, I’ve been up to some shit that I’m allowed to write about, and I’m definitely ready to get back to posting regularly. Expect some posts soon!
