Have You Seen This Gnome?
December 3, 2009 10 Comments
I’m sure some of you have noticed a lack of posting as of late; sometimes life just gets in the way…
The biggest of my issues is that work blocked WordPress, and I used to get a fair bit of work done in my down time on the site. It’s not like I just sat at work (hard to do as a teacher) and worked on the blog all day, but I did get some time every day where I could work on it. Losing that meant having to make up that time somewhere else, and I’ve not figured out exactly where to put it quite yet. It’s not like I’m unable to write posts at work and post them when I get home, but that’s time that I was using for other things.
What other things you ask? My friend Tom and I write and record music together. It’s something that we’ve dabbled in for years, but we finally got more serious about it this year, and set aside a couple of hours every Monday to record our music. That doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but I spend more than those two hours on it every week. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I’ll re-record a near perfect vocal part 10 times if I can get it perfect. Also, I do all the mixing when Tom’s not here, so that’s even more time spent messing around with the music. It’s a lot of fun, but very time consuming.
Anyway, I can find a million reasons why I haven’t been spending or had the time to work on the site, but I only need one to know that I should find some more time to work here too. I love to write, enjoy to share and aspire to help when I can. Don’t worry, I’ll have some time to get back into the swing of things this weekend, and I can get back to some sense of normalcy with posting. I enjoy writing and the people I meet through this blog too much to let it stagnate for too long.
