What I did on my Blogging Vacation

Thanks for coming to this, my new blog.  Yes, I\’ve been away for over a year now – away, that is, from the blogging world.  Well, that away-ness ends now.

Now, I can\’t say that I am back for good, as the balance of life is always precarious, and I was unable to maintain good balance in the past.  But I do feel I am past due to start writing again.  There is too much craziness, too many funny things, too much misunderstanding, and too many words inside of me waiting to come out for me to stay out of blogging.  I hope I can do so now without becoming sucked into the toxicity of trying to write for people\’s reactions (which is why I quit blogging).  I think I can.

Anyway, I do intend for this new blog to be pretty similar to the previous one (which you can still access at http://distractible.org).  A year off, however, gives me perspective and gives me license to change as well.  A new blog lets me not be forced into the legacy of the old blog, good or bad.  My whole take on writing and why I liked blogging so much in the first place was that there are no rules when you are your own publisher.  There may be expectations set there by your readers, but there are no rules.

So here it goes.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Will be looking forward to your posts.
    I’ve been remiss in following and other blogging things – although write – although feel I lost that original mojo tho ..but life does change. Love writing tho. I often write but don’t always post it.
    Missed your zany posts. And can’t hear about/see a llama without thinking of you.

    Have fun with it. 🙂

  2. I started a new blog last springish/summer …
    Welcome back to blogging .. you’ve been missed! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!

  3. So happy to see you blogging again! I really enjoyed your blogs in the past.
    Have fun!!!

  4. Hooray! Welcome back.
    Honestly, though, I am not sure why you see the need to disconnect the new BLOG from the old. One would expect style and content to change over time.

  5. Great to see you back. I got the email and it made me smile. Can’t wait to see what you have to share. The picture is a hoot! Was it a legit ad?
