I know you’ve noticed that I haven’t written a blog post in a very long time. VERY long.
There’s no real excuse for it, either. Yes, I’ve been crazy busy with everything that life has thrown at me, but who isn’t?
The truth is, I just didn’t feel like it. I don’t have an earth-moving tutorial to share right now. I’m not feeling particularly riled about an issue that pertains to small business owners.
I might have written about something sooner if, during the transfer to my new site, ALL the photos that were attached to ALL the blog posts had transferred over, too. But, no, that didn’t happen. The intensely tedious job of identifying, locating, resizing and uploading all those photos fell on me. So, I did what I do best at times like these. I pretend the problem doesn’t exist until I feel like tackling it.
As if that weren’t enough, something really strange happened to my wireless router. It wouldn’t let me on my site. Isn’t that the craziest thing you’ve ever heard? I open every single website the internets had to offer, except my own. It’s as if the universe (and Steven Jobs) was giving me a little extra time to enjoy my self-imposed exile.
What I have done is become more social in real life. Going to parties, for example. Getting together with friends on Saturday nights, or even during the week. You know, the kind of stuff we used to do before we chained ourselves to our devices. Isn’t it amazing how connecting with living, breathing humans can lift our spirits?
To those of you who haven’t unsubscribed from this blog, I apologize to you and thank you at the same time. I even got some emails from you asking if something wonky was going on with the site. You would think that might have ignited a spark in me.
The new router is in place and I spent a good deal of today immersing myself in tedium. All the uploads aren’t finished yet, but a big dent has been made.
And since we’re nearing the end of October, I thought I’d leave you with a little cookie gift.
Dia De Los Muertos, or a mocking self-portrait of my time away from my blog?
I’ll let you decide.
