Sometimes things slip away. Weeks, months, nay, years go by and you can’t believe how long something has been.
Sometimes anniversaries sneak up on us. Am I right? Have you ever missed your wedding anniversary?
But wait, I’m not talking about a traditional relationship anniversary, but in another way I am referring to a kind of relationship. A virtual relationship. Our relationship. The relationship between blogger and reader, social media guru and fellow like minded folk, writers and writers.
Running a blog, like anything in writing and the media, requires constant work. You cannot write a novel if you ignore the previous chapters for 7 months. You can’t perform poetry if you don’t keep reading it and practicing it on your own in the front room. You won’t grow a social media following if you don’t update regularly.
My point is, and I am beating about the bush a bit today (can you tell I’m out of practice?) that my blog has been left for basically two years. Reason being: an internship. And an MA. Excuses, excuses… I’m sorry.
Understandably, careers and Master’s degrees do have a habit of taking over one’s life. But I am now free. And I am ready to do this for fun again!!!
I don’t plan for many of my future posts to be stream of consciousness like this one is today. But I do want to update it regularly with my writing, my tips and advice and some silly bits along the way.
Stay tuned, please don’t let me forget to check in from time to time
