I've been blogging for over a year, and I remember, when I started, there were many authors who were having blogger burnout, authors who had also been blogging for over 4, 5 or 6 years. The whole blogging thing was new and exciting to me, and I couldn't understand how people didn't want to blog.
I still love blogging, but I can't seem to work it in lately like I want to. I have been making progress on the revision of my novel, pushing hard to fine tune a query letter before I let other's work it over for me, researching agents and LOVING every single second of it. And then I remember I need to blog, and I tell myself I'll get to that first thing tomorrow morning, and now it's after 9:00 local time and I'm just getting to this post only to realize I never posted on Monday. I really don't know how you people who post 5 days do it.
I had plans to write all my posts on Saturdays, but my last few Saturdays got taken over by new responsibilities my family recently acquired. But I'm not fizzling out. This is my post to tell you that I want to do better, that I miss responding and interacting with all you lovely people, jumping around to blogs, seeing how everyone is doing. There are some places I haven't been in months. But I want you to know that I'm not backing down, just reorganizing. And I really want to thank you all, for probably the millionth time and about a million times too few, for the amazing community that you are. You have changed my life in ways I can't even begin to understand, and I'm so so grateful.
