So, I’ve been blogging off and on for years, mostly on other people’s and company’s blogs as a favor here and there. I never really had much luck maintaining my own personal blog, however. I would write three or four posts in a week, then nothing for months. I was writing so sporadically that it only made my content look stale. It was a bad habit, and a poor way to use my energy.
Well, here we are in 2014, and I’ve gotten through a lot of the things that have kept me from writing consistently in the past. I finished my Master’s coursework last December, I stopped taking most freelance web design clients that were eating into my evenings and weekends, I’ve settled into a new home and stopped doing the new move-in projects, and my personal life is finally balanced and healthy again. I truly feel like I have a good amount of energy and ideas to maintain a personal blog again.
So with all that said, here goes. I haven’t honed in on what I’ll be writing about quite yet, and my audience is really just me. It may seem random, to go from a home brew recipe to a review of a new laptop, to a series of Raleigh photographs, but hey … i’m writing for me. If anyone wants to tag along and read or join the conversation, fantastic. But, I won’t mold this blog into a particular format, topic, or structure to drive traffic. To quote my least favorite euphemism, “It is what it is.”
