Without doubt, I have proven that I completely suck at blogging. When I started this, I thought it would be a great venue for me to offload some of the never-ending chatter between my ears. Instead I opted for the 'make yourself completely insane by never letting anything out' option. I've had some fun with the insane, catch-22 loops I've dragged myself into, but I think it's time to get off the merry-go-round.
In the past few months, I have really re-discovered one of my very earliest passions, which is books. Don't get me wrong, I never gave up reading, but now that my job has become a little more predictable and my daughter has become a lot more self sufficient, I find I am once again able to really enjoy books.
Courtesy of social media, I am now able to find more suggestions, more new releases, more reading club suggestions and some truly articulate (and FUNNY) writers. Inspired by all of this literature, I've decided I really want to get back to writing more regularly and what better topics than books I'm reading and loving? Obviously I don't love everything I read (who could really) but I'm very excited about reading new things and challenging myself to blog honestly about it all.
For the half a dozen people who check in here annually to ensure I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, I hope you'll continue to enjoy my writing and will keep coming back. I've got the best of intentions this time around to keep at this. I may need you to kick my butt periodically to keep me on track, so feel free to swing away at will.
The murder rate peaks when the temperature does.
