No, I didn't die. I'm still here. I just (accidentally) took a week off blogging. Didn't mean to worry anyone.
Here's what happened. I had a post mostly written up, but when I thought about posting it, I thought "I should add those photos off my phone first." Then I would think "where'd I put the connector thing for that?" Then I would think "well, I'll look for that in a little bit. First I need to call this client/finish up that design/respond to this email/etc. And then another day would pass.
The thing about blogging is it's a rhythm: read, write, reply, repeat. You get in the habit of working it during certain times of the day. Once you break the cycle (to go on vacation or because work is taking more time), it takes a little time to get your rhythm back. (Especially if you didn't have a lot to begin with. I'm pretty sure that the stereotype about white people not having any rhythm was started by someone sitting behind me in church watching me try to clap with the music. But I digress.)
I think we have a good thing going here with this Little Stuff of Life community (which, yes, you are a part of if you're reading this). I want to keep this going, but I can't keep up with my previous post-a-day pace.
Quickly, here are my thoughts on how this will probably look in the coming weeks:
- 2-3 posts a week
- Not always photos (I know! I love them too! But they're a huge time drain - even know that I know how to get them off the phone)
- When things are crazy, at least a quick post on what I'm up to
