Good Morning. I know this post is late in getting up, but that's because The Monster got out of school yesterday for summer break and I got up late this morning. Well, not so late, 7:30, but that's late for me as I'm usually up at 5. But I didn't set the alarm this morning and I didn't have a post already planned. So here I am.
There's been a lot of chatter around the blogosphere about the blogs, and bloggers coming, going, leaving, comments, no comments, is blogging dead, is it cyclical, do we even care anymore....
I don't believe there are any definitive answers. As with writing, it's all subjective. What one may think about blogging, another may think about Twitter or Pinterest, or FB.
I think, and this is only my opinion, as most of us have been around for awhile, and have come far from where we started a few years ago, we've either gotten agents, small publishers, or took the plunge and self-published. And as everyone knows, once you do any of those things, your life takes on a whole different direction. I know a few weeks ago, I had a post about blogging and although I love it, it's just sucking the life out of me. I don't have time for it anymore.
I've always said the writing comes first, and that will not change. (Well, first after The Monster and my mother's constant demand to have her lawn mowed and gardens in perfect order.) I haven't been around lately because I've been working on my latest story -- Monday's post --. We'll also be moving very very soon, add to that painting and fixing the old house, and throw some vacation in the mix and well, what do you get?
Me, in a straight jacket.
Well, sort of, but no, more than likely, you just won't get me around. I have some posts pre-planned for Monday's in the next few weeks, and I still would like to celebrate my birthday before I leave, so I hope you'll just keep me on your radar for a little while longer.
Tell me -- Are you getting ready for summer? Are you taking a blog break? Is blogging dead, or just cyclical?
