I’ve seen a number of articles saying that you shouldn’t write a post apologizing for not writing new blog posts.
So, I won’t apologize. Plus, I’m not all that sorry because I’ve been so busy with work, getting back into shape, and enjoying life.
But, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I last posted until I was asked on Facebook why I had stopped blogging. I thought, “wait, I haven’t stopped blogging”. And then I realized so many months had gone by that it must appear that way. I knew I was lazy about answering and even moderating comments but in my mind I had just written a new post (even though I really hadn’t).
It can be so hard to make something, such as writing articles or exercising a habit. And it can be so easy to break that habit. I regularly posted 2-3 times a week. Once I stopped doing that it was hard to get started again. “Oh, I’ll write a post for Thursday.” or “No, I’ll write a bunch or articles over the weekend.” But more and more time went by. Since, I’ve finally made exercise a daily habit (and I am loving the hour long bike rides) it’s time to make posting a habit again too.
I’m Sorry. No I’m Not.
Plus, I’ve been collecting so many great WordPress tips, ideas and plugins, which I really need to start sharing again.
So, this is my non-apology apology and a more “normal” posting schedule should resume soon. You know, just in time for my summer vacation ;-)
