Wow! Has it really been so long since I've been here? Since Thanksgivukkah?
Talk about time slipping away. I neglected my love-child, my blog. Sorry.
And you know what? I honestly don't know why. Many times I've opened my laptop with the intent of writing, only to go off surfing in a totally different direction.
A couple of times I just sat and pondered why I didn't feel like writing. I even had one of those late-night problem-solving in-the-dark discussions w/hubby. Nope. Still couldn't come up with any definitive answer.
I ended up concluding that since no one had reached out to me to find out why I hadn't posted lately it must mean that I stink. No no. Not me personally. My writing. It just didn't grab and hold anyone's attention. It's not very good. And maybe that's why I don't want to write again. Subconsciously, I must know this about myself and my conscious self is starting to realize it.
The holidays kept me busy so I didn't have much time to worry about writing. When things quieted down, I thought about getting back on the bloggy horse. And that's when it hit me...I hadn't received any emails, facebook posts, private messages, post comments, texts...from anyone asking about my bloggy absence or asking when to expect my next post. Hmmm...didn't anyone miss me? Hadn't anyone wondered where I'd been?
So. Huh. That's that. Now I have a big decision to make. Do I close up shop? Delete all my posts and let Kate Khronicles die a quick yet dignified death? Or should I take hubby's suggestion and continue on but with the intent that I only write for me? Write about what I like and not worry about if its read by anyone or not?
I let this decision stew inside my little grey cells for a few weeks.
Think I'm going to go with hubby's idea...Plan B.
Write for me. Write what I like. No more worrying about how many page views or comments I get. No more stressing myself out trying to keep to a writing schedule. Just write when the urge overtakes me. No more trying to write the perfect post, choose the perfect topic.
Ok. This is it. My foray back into the blogosphere. With a new plan. A new attitude.
And if no one likes it...well, pffft on them.
