I have an announcement to make. If you’re reading this, you might have a guess as to what that announcement is.
I reactivated my blog today.
I haven’t posted in almost two years. My last posts are from the October I spent in Texas with my sister during the end stages of her battle with colon cancer.
To be honest, I didn’t know how to write about the end of my time there. The experience I had with my sister prior to her death was hard to talk about. I felt like I couldn’t write anything else here until I was ready to talk about that.
While a lot of time has passed, and I’m much more open to talking about it now, I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready to write about that in such a public sphere. And I’ve come to realize that’s okay.
Over the past several months, my job has shifted. I write a lot now–mostly press releases, with the occasional blog post thrown in the mix (check out my links and clips for what I’ve been doing). All of this writing has given me a desire for an outlet that would allow me to write about things beyond what my job requires. I’ve been playing around with reactivating this for quite a while, and now is the time.
I also considered starting over completely with a brand new blog. Instead, I resurrected this and kept only a handful of posts. The rest are currently hidden. Maybe they’ll come back some day, maybe not.
I’m not sure yet what form my blogging is going to take. I just know that I have a lot of opinions and a healthy desire to express them! So, here we are.
A lot has changed in the past 2 years. In the next few weeks, I plan on filling in some of those missing details to bridge the gap between my last post and this one.
Thanks for having me back, blog. Let’s get back to it.
