There's always a point in my day when I take a break from work and take a look at a few blogs. It seems like every day there are less and less blogs and less and less posts on those blogs. It makes me sad to see all those blogs that I would read every day disappearing. I have a full folder of blogs that are no longer. I call it the Dead Blog folder.
Then I realized I was was one of those blogs! I miss the blogging. I miss coming here to tell you a funny story. I know in part it's because I've been putting so much time and energy into my business. Hey I'd say that's a good reason! However, I blame the other part on facebook. Really. It's far too easy to run over there really quick and post something funny that happened. Well, when I tell all my funnies over there, what the hell do I have to talk about over here?!
So, I've been making a slight exit from facebook. Not a big dramatic I-can't-take-all-this-drama-and-bullshit exit. Just one of those pulling back exits. I love to see what people are up to, but I feel like it's a big time suck. I do appreciate how it does bring us closer to people in ways. People that I haven't been able to get to know in real life, are now in touch with me on a daily basis. I know it's not face to face but it's more than I've been able to have with some of these people in years.
On the other hand, I've been a bit discontent with how I've been spending my spare time. I've been putting a lot of time in with my business and I feel like I need to reward myself with quality spare time. Facebook is not quality time. I'm not reading books like I used to. I'm not spending my time in the garden. I'm not writing on here like I used to. Three things I find very rewarding.
So I've decided not to become one of the dead blogs that I used to love. I have definitely realized I need this outlet. I need to bitch to you! I need to tell you the stupid shit I do! So, I'm rewarding myself by letting myself write again. I already feel better!
