You probably have noticed over the past few months the frequency of the Roadrunner Chronicles has slowed. My goal continues to be two or three posts a week but this past week it just wasn't going to happen. I have been busy. So it has been intermittent. More ebb than flow.
Gratefully, I have been heads down in my laptop doing some online work for my last employer. I am thankful for that and quite frankly, I am not used to the level of intensity and focus that I used to have. But I am getting it back. My energy had been ebbing but lately it has been flowing.
I love being able to work a few hours online each month. Toward the end of last year, I was notified my last gig was ending. Reorgs, changes in personnel, etc meant that I needed to look around.
But I put out the call and thankfully some folks in my old group thought of me and I am able to do some end-of-the-month work. I got started late in the month and felt like I was walking into a movie that was well past intermission. With deadlines prevailing (remember those days?) I was in the surge mode. So I was working some long hours for the last week. But we got-er-done and next month I think it will go a lot more smoothly.
That is not to say I have been working 24 x 7 since my last post because that just isn't the case. I am really a morning person so I like to put together my post when the sun is just coming up and I am enjoying my morning coffee. After the early part of the morning, I feel like my day is off and running and I hate to stop and interrupt this for that. You know- we all have our routine.
And then in the middle of the day, there is so much to do. Like go to a couple of Major League Baseball Spring training games in the last week. And check out our new environs here in Tucson. And meet up with friends. All in the midst of new deadlines...
Which brings me back to why I blog: Its a hobby I enjoy. But too much of a hobby is too much. I found that posting every day was taking its toll. It almost meant my hobby took my life because the blog became focus of my whole day. So after a year of trying it and posting every day, I decided to back off and post a couple or three times a week.
I know there are ramifications to that--people that have become interested and look forward to seeing what's up with the Roadrunner Chronicles may be disappointed. And quit checking in. If you are among those, I really appreciate your interest and will try to get back to that pace.
Recently I have read some blogs and they have ebbed. Writers have decided for whatever reason to quit blogging. It is a burden, it is no fun any more, there is no motivation, writers block ~ and there are more reasons I am sure.
But I am here for a while and will continue. Because it is still fun. It is a hobby I enjoy. And I love hearing from all you out there.
Thanks for viewing today and we'll be back with some pictures next time on the Roadrunner Chronicles from Tucson!
