Hello! This note of apology has been a long time coming, but until today, I never really thought through it and sat down to write it. I only just realized today, this past summer marked four years blogging. I’m a little amazed by that. It seems only yesterday I was dipping my toes in the water, testing the world known as blogging. To say nothing of it being kind of a big and intimidating world.
This brings us to today. Between my pursuit of getting our Etsy store started (thank goodness my mother seems to be the more prolific and certainly, more amazing designer, leaving me to mostly work on the technical side), life and family, meeting article deadlines for my contributing gigs, reading and my TV obsessions (I really should cut back on the latter, but guys… come on, it’s a relaxing thing *wink*), I fear this space is suffering. Add in the fact that I suddenly realized I’ve not worked a wink on my Christmas cards and it’s nearly November first, and life has been… busy.
My sincere apologies for this. Neglecting this space has never been my intention. I love it. I love the people who have taken time to read it. Most of all, I love all of the conversations I’ve had with the people I’ve met. Whether they’ve been on our long-winded albeit fun Twitter conversations or on our blogs, they’ve all been amazing.
The intention of this letter isn’t to again go into my blogging journey or become sentimental but rather to apologize for my lack of attention. I want to you all to know, I appreciate every comment even if I’m not promptly responding to them. (Between you and I, the days fly by too fast to suit.) I still read every one of your comments and have every intention of becoming more prompt at responding. At this writing, I’m again caught up on replies. I’ve got two-three more posts coming this week, two of which I am excited about despite them being only reviews, the third is the love-to-hate month in recap post. I still cannot decide if I want to continue that – your input?
Anyway, all of that babbling to say, the blog is still around, there is still content in the plans. I’m trying to find out the best balancing act right now and until I do, it may be a bit quieter in terms of when I get replies to your comments. The idea is next week to get back on schedule as well as catching up with you on your blogs.
This is just my sincere note of apology for being MIA! As always, thank you for being a part of this blog’s readership, commenting and taking time to read this blog. I appreciate it.
