Cue my stunned face when asked that by a family member last weekend.
Right. I blog. That’s what this space is for.
So this is where bloggers apologize (why exactly, I’m not sure) for their absence, relay a list of excuses for not appearing in your feed reader for the last month and then regale you with adventures of their time away.
Yeah, you’re not going to find that here. I’m all about breaking the rules, as you know.
See, life has been odd the last month. Heck! It’s been odd for a lot longer than that! There’s been a lot of sadness, confusion and upheaval not necessarily for me, but the people around me. And being the weirdo I am, other people’s problems take up a big chunk of my brain and I become a bit withdrawn, spending a lot of time in my head trying to figure things out or just generally moping about.
Yes, I have become one with my couch and Netflix.
But with the bad comes the good. A lot great things have happened over the last little while to keep me occupied, had me travelling to visit people I care about and even put a smile on my face.
While I’m not necessarily bottling things up (as really I use this space for catharsis more than anything else), I’ll eventually start spewing out content again on a semi-regular basis. Just don’t look for me to have a content calendar chock full of posts to cram down your throat. When there are stories to tell, I’ll definitely share them with you.
Be certain that there will always be weight to lose, recipes to fail at and running adventures to be shared here as there are every year. But until then, I’m back to writing stories for a different audience at that place that pays my bills.
Besides, you never truly get rid of mice and they return when you least expect it.
