Yup, it’s been a while. Did Ms. B. run out of happy? Of course not! But I have been busy. What with? Life. Every aspect of it: Funerals. Weddings! Babies!!! Lots of emotions, lots of tears both sad and happy. Lots of stress and lots of joy!
Oh, by the way, none of those events were ‘mine’ – I didn’t die, get married or have a baby. Just thought I’d clarify that point.
Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yes, I was making my excuses for not blogging regularly. The excuse I’ve chosen is ‘Life’. Original? Not really. Valid? I think so.
The funny thing is I think about writing a lot, but I don’t take the time to actually do it. There’s a couple of reasons for this:
- I’m lazy. When I get home from work I don’t want to do more work. While blogging is fun, it does require brain power, which I don’t usually feel like exercising.
- I don’t like my laptop, but don’t want to sit at my desktop. Yes, this is a completely ridiculous excuse that barely makes sense. Yes, I am aware there are multiple ways I can solve this problem. Yes, I do this in other aspects of my life and they are just as illogical.
- Writing takes time. Time which I may or may not have. And even when I do have time, my mind is not always ready to write! Or at least to write anything worth reading.
- I have other things to do. Yup. Work, RPGs, knitting, exercising, spending time with family and friends, reading, playing video games, trying to eat healthy, remembering to pray, creating card games, plotting world domination, cross stitch, cuddling the cats: prioritizing is hard!
So blogging isn’t my top priority in life at the moment. But it is on the list! I plan to keep writing, even if it is not often. Gotta start somewhere, you know? Hopefully you’ll stick around to keep reading.
