It has only been 23 months since the last post… a unintended nap that turned into a hiatus. While excuses are aplenty, I figure the only way to rectify the situation is to start up again.
A lot has changed since this blog originated. Two kids (now 3.5 and 1.5), house (about 57 years old but just 3.5 years with us as caretakers), and a new demanding job. There are probably countless other bloggers with more on their plate, but still able to bang out a few posts a week… that’s not me… yet.
With the job change, my ability to monitor, read, and produce material has taken a significant hit. Already 2.5 years into the “new” job and it still hectic day in and day out. Therefore, by the time we get the kids put to bed, the last thing I’m wanting to do is fire up the computer and start writing. Not the focus and drive of a hustler/grinder/entrepreneur I admit.
Lately, I’ve been having these thoughts during the day… of ideas that would make a good, brief blog post. By the time I have a moment to write it down, it has either faded from memory or no longer seems like the gem I thought it may have been.
No matter, I vow to start anew in 2016. If you’re reading this for the first time, I promise it will get better (it probably can’t get much worse!). I’m not even sure on the best RSS feed, etc. to follow blogs anymore (RIP Google Reader). That will be part of the learning and growing experience… but if you have wisdom to share, the comment box is below.
Happy 2016! Hopefully you still are working on at least half the resolutions you made less than two weeks ago. Firing this old jalopy up was one of mine… so better 11 days late than never.
