I’ve heard from many of my friends and family that they’re disappointed in my recent lack of posting. Neighbors, best friends, cousins, and strangers all said “you need to post more, I get bored at work” and “I never got a birthday tribute.” No one asked why I hadn’t posted recently or commented that I’d missed my two-year blogiversary on December 17, 2009.
Here’s the thing: I haven’t been happy with the content of this blog for a while. I keep meaning to post more and be more thoughtful and write more and tell more anecdotes. I save links and videos. You send me great things to share with everyone else.
And I get busy (ironically with a job in social media) and I get tired and then I don’t do it.
I’ve promised to be better this year and to take the pressure off myself; I don’t have to make this blog better, I just have to maintain what I have since I do enjoy it.
I don’t have to remember everyone’s birthday — although apologies to Mom, Dad, Liz P, Sarah, Mike, Barbara, and a little bit to Paul. FYI, Paul and I are no longer friends and I’m no longer converting for marrying him so if you’re a single dermatologist over 5’10” — call me.
I’m just going to keep posting and you can keep reading. And when I post less, you can berate me — because that’s exactly what I’d do to you.
