I honestly talk about my blog with every stranger I meet. Part of the reason might be that I work with blogs and social media for work. A lot of what I incorporate into that career comes from what I’ve learned through my own experience. I can’t help it. I love it here. What’s not to love about blogging? I went to an InDesign class this week and 10% of the time, I was thinking about how awesome InDesign could be for my blog. _
…if I had that kind of time to dedicate to my blog.
In other news, replies to your comments (all of which I’ve been happily reading) are going to be slow coming again. I’ve been busy this week and I’m visiting family this weekend. I’ll do my best to get to everyone early next week. Please forgive my delay. I love you all so much and it pains me to make you wait.
I feel like my blog has suffered substantially this week. It doesn’t have anything to do with views, comments or any other metric bloggers use to measure success. I just feel like my writing here has suffered. If you felt that, I’m very sorry. I was just a little more busy this week and that was apparent enough for all to suffer. Please accept my deepest apologies. I promise to do better.
One thing I’ve thought of doing to reduce some of the chaos of my life is to accept a guest blog each week. Would anyone here be interested in that? I’d have veto power, of course, and would want to read what you have to say before giving to okay. You’d have to choose a quote for your piece and preferably send me a link to a photo from the Flicker Creative Commons you want to go with it. Any takers? Whose interested?
I think about this open more than I should. I rented Chrono Cross around the time I first got my Playstation (so think 2000). I got stuck right away and then had to bring the game back. To this day, I have longed to play both Chrono Trigger and Chrono Crusade. I mean, just listen to that music! I wonder if it’s even worth bothering with new video games. I’m just going to stick to my old games and be happy. You can keep your fancy graphics. All I want is music, stories and gameplay.
…as soon as I find time to play games.
All the dishes were washed this week and then I celebrated with ice cream. Other than that, balance has not been my friend. There are just so many things to fit into life.
This adult thing is hard, guys. I really wish I didn’t need sleep. Think of how much more I could get done!
I fail at fitness. This has been one thing I just can’t get back to. I was doing so well at the beginning of the year, too. I can hardly fit my creative writing in and answer blog comments, let along get some fitness in every day. I haven’t given up, I just need to make sure everything in life is stable first. There’s no point in joining a gym or making some other commitment if I can’t even achieve the commitments I already have.
I got a comment on a Facebook post! Now, it wasn’t a positive comment. In fact, it was so negative I almost removed it for being offensive. Well, whatever. No one ever comments on my post on Facebook. If anything, they just comment here.
In other news, I also wish I had more time for social media. Why can’t I just sit on Twitter all day while writing books and blogs?
Speaking of writing…. well, I did do some. After quickly realizing that writing on Friday nights would almost never work, I changed my plan to Sunday, Monday and Wednesday. While I made it to the cafe to write and read Harry Potter on Sunday, I can’t say the same for Monday or Wednesday. I’ve been trying to get things together, working on weekend blog posts during the week and getting weekend chores done before the weekend (like the damn dishes). This is all because I’m visiting family in Iowa this weekend.
I’m going to take my notebooks with me to Iowa, though. Maybe I can get some writing in at some point.
I may have something interesting to report on when I get back from Iowa. It depends how eventful the weekend is. My uncle is moving to a new parish and they’re having some kind of ceremony or celebration to hand the parish to him. The Bishop of his Diocese will be there and everything. Let me know if you guys have any questions about that. Maybe I’ll write something up.
Have a great weekend friends!
