That is what it would sound like if my blog were like the Superbowl of blogs - hey, the "once a year" thing fits. It isn't. I don't mind not having any fanfare because I've always been so inconsistent and I'm not really into that.
There has been a lot of good stuff going on in my life lately. I started college in January. Took the plunge into higher education. I am enjoying my education so far, but I'm finding myself climbing the fence on my area of study. I can go into more detail of that later. For now, I just want to encourage myself to do this blog thing on a regular basis.
Writing has always been important in my life. The earliest I can remember writing becoming important to me is around the age of 10 or so. In order to write, I must write. Even if it is blah. Faithful friends and readers (echo, echo-o, echo-o-o) - okay, I am strictly speaking to myself because I need a good talking to - I duly swear to become a consistent blogger. It is what I'm going to call "my craft". I may not be good or perfect at it, but it's what I love. I also promise to participate in one free write thing a month.
I think this is so often why I "go away". I get myself involved in too many memes and want to do everything there is to do, comment on every blog I enjoy reading. I am not that person, by nature. I need to limit myself on what I get involved in, as far as blogging goes. I just hope that I don't keep finding excellent blogs to read. I know I will have my select few that I always return to and comment on.
You may notice as time passes that my writing may become a little more organized. It may make more sense. It may flow the way it's supposed to. Of course, that's what a college writing course will do. I will be able to apply that, at least, in my life.
