Yes, it’s true; I’ve been cheating on my blog. It started with neglect, progressed to adultery. It hasn’t even been 24 hours, and already I’m confessing.
The abridged version of the whole affair: I started a new job; they hired me to work 1-2 days a week. After I had worked for a week, stuff happened, and suddenly I was offered a full-time position. Sweet.
I love the new job. It’s difficult, it wears me out, it taxes all 3 of my brain cells (the only survivors of the toddler twin parental brain implosion of 2010), but I LOVE it.
It’s in art, which was my field, my life, up until the twins were born. It’s glorious to be back, though to be fair, I cannot currently be called a success in the field, not in any way, shape, or form. I keep reminding myself that it’s been less than a month, and Rome wasn’t built in a day. My strategy is to bust ass (my ass), using every ounce of knowledge, creativity, and determination I can muster, and hope for the best.
And start a blog.
My new employers have given the go ahead, but they don’t have any experience with blogs, and I get the impression they think it will have no impact whatsoever on the business. They’re probably right. I did a fair amount of research within the field, however, and found that just about everyone else has a blog, so it’s certainly worth a go.
I wrote my first post yesterday, puts tons of tags on it, and already it’s had a grand total of……wait for it……1 hit!
Not a promising start, but I will persevere.
And if you are kind-hearted enough to check out my new blog (still under construction, pretend not to notice), thus raising its stats–which let’s face it, could not be worse–I would be most obliged. And if you leave a comment, I will love you forever.
