I realized today, that it had been a week and I hadn’t been to even look at my blog. I know it may sound trivial to you, but to me, over the last four years my blog has become part of who I am.
For three years, I intently posted on this blog 1-2 times a week. It came to me easily, I was bubbling with ideas and was so excited to be part of this new community.
Today, I am just as excited. In fact, I think my blog came up 10 times this week with a stranger, in a business meeting, in a handful of emails (readers still email), with family that was in town visiting and at work. It still is very much part of my personal brand whether you know me online or in person. I love that.
I know this blog will always remain. I suppose it has become entrenched into me and recently, with the surprise of the Forbes mention friends and family that I didn’t even know read my blog, have been congratulating me. It’s a forever work in progress but it’s my progress and it’s close to my heart.
But something has shifted.
So please know, even if I’m not here everyday or even if I don’t post for a period of time it’s always on my mind. I don’t feel guilty (maybe at first I did, but that’s not a good emotion to harbor), but I do feel honored to be part of this community and honored that you’re here, reading these words.
Instead, I just may be deeply involved in another project, hustling at my job, writing freelance about food and restaurants (I’ve been doing that for 3 months now in addition to my food blog!) or just waiting for that great story, to share here.
Essentially, what I’m saying is thank you. I’m still around. Hope you’re well. Thanks for being here. Happy Friday.
