When I started writing this here blog I just wanted to write. Obviously I wanted a few people to read it so I slowly joined the blogging community, finding fellow bloggers via the likes of Twitter and Love All Blogs. It became addictive and I slowly began to understand that blogging was as much about community as it was writing. I took part in blog hops, read other people’s stuff and entered show cases. I checked my stats and, yes, I cared about them.
This is not something I’ve been able to do recently. Weekends are totally full of family stuff and my job has been INSANE. I haven’t logged in to the blog let alone looked at my stats, I appear to have a pending unapproved comment and I’ve barely been on twitter.
I don’t think anyone’s noticed much but I feel guilty. I’m not stopping, flouncing or giving up. I will be updating this blog a lot less than I have been in the past though. Without going too much in to it the project I’m involved in has a must hit, legislation driven deadline and everything else is going to have to take a back seat if I’m going to give both it and the kids the attention they need.
When I do write another proper post it’ll be when I can rejoin the community again, reply to comments properly and start interacting and showcasing.
Cheers for reading.
