Hey everyone, dear readers new and old. I am so grateful for each and every one of you. When I started writing regularly in this space just over 2 years ago, I never expected anyone to read it. I was just posting, setting my thoughts free into the ether, where they could be picked up or not. I made no effort at promotion; I still don’t, really. I did not connect any social media accounts. I did not attach my name to my work, not even a picture. The only person who knew I was doing this was my husband and my friend who actually set up the site for me, which I’m sure was totally easy to do, but had me completely blocked for some reason I still cannot fully explain.
Over the last 2 years, I have gotten bolder. My topics have gotten more opinionated and I have gained confidence, little by little. I attached the blog to my relatively anonymous Twitter account that I barely use. Then, eventually I attached my name by connecting my LinkedIn account. This was a HUGE step for me. My posts started getting more confident too. I settled into a regular schedule. After months of posting any day, sometimes 2-3 times per week, and then not for up to two weeks, I ended up posting regularly every Tuesday and sometimes Fridays.
But now, I have come to the realization that I need to shake things up. Over the last month, I’ve missed a couple of Tuesdays due to lack of inspiration/mental block and now all of a sudden, writing is flowing out of my like a geyser. Because my writings are very topical and centered in time and place, I am feeling constrained by the schedule I have created. And the schedule is bogus! I created it; I can destroy it.
So, from now into the foreseeable future, there will be no set schedule for when you see my posts dropping. I might just publish a post whenever I complete it! I’m in control and I get to do what feels right. No more shackles to hold me back.
But then again, I may take a week or more off at times. This girl needs a nap now and then to stay in tip-top shape! I’m sure you understand. You’re my peeps!
