Blogging to My Own Beat

Monday, August 31st, 2009

When I started this blog over a year ago, I did so with quite a bit of reluctance.  I am to that point in life where flexibility is paramount and I didn’t want to be bound be the “musts” of blogging.  Thou shalt blog at least once a day.  Thou shalt blog no more than 400 words at a time.  Thou shalt be prepared to blog while on vacation and otherwise away from the space where you are prepared and outfitted to blog…in any corner of the world at any time of the day.

Obviously, I have not played by those rules and the most glaring example has been the last three weeks.  You haven’t heard a peep from me.  I’m really sorry about that.  But I can explain.

It’s not anything awful.  It’s just…well…I’ve been living my life.  And that involved a bike trip followed by two weeks on the road in Colorado doing book tour stuff and having some fun.  I’m not a fan of the “I’m making myself dinner” style of blogging, so you didn’t hear about all that.

I finally realized as I was slithering out from under the resulting pile of guilt this afternoon that those who read this are most likely just as happy with that  as I am.  When I write here, I hope it’s to offer something useful.   If I write too often, I may actually be offering you less.  Case in point:  I am subscribed to several online newsletters and the ones that come even once a week are starting to wear me out.  TOO MUCH INFORMATION!

So this post is just to set the record straight.  I will write when I can and you will read when you want.  Hopefully, we can enjoy each other best that way.  If you need more, please feel free to complain by sending me a note.  Or commenting on this post.  Thanks.

Life is sweetest when rules are kept to a minimum.  Down with blogging tyranny!
