I’m a fan of failblog and the rest of the cheezburger network. Sometimes funny pictures of cats really can make your day better. However, I’m not referring to this failblog, but to this post as being my confession of failing at my blog.
If you read the previous post, you may notice that I last posted on 6/10/10, just four days short of a FULL YEAR AGO. Really? I haven’t had anything to say for a FULL YEAR? For any of you who know me, you know that this is not remotely possible. Not at all.
What happened a year ago? I went on a few trips and I got a promotion that added a new department to my area of responsibility. And I fell off the blog wagon. About three months after that, I fell off the balance wagon. I stopped working out consistently. I stopped being careful about what I ate. I stopped cooking. I stopped spreading housework through the week and ended up doing it on weekends. I stopped stopping at a reasonable time at night, checking email and working into the evening and night. I stopped staying connected to my personal learning network on Twitter. You can’t write a “tech life balance” blog if you’re really lacking in tech life balance, now can you? (Note: this post came from a previous blog entitled “tech life balance.)
So, here’s my failblog confession. I failed to blog and I failed at the purpose of the blog. I forgive me.
In the words of Thomas Edison, “I haven’t failed, I’ve found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” Maybe I haven’t found 10,000 ways that don’t work, but I have found a number of things that don’t make me feel like I’m as happy and balanced as I want to be.
Now, I’ve come back to this blog and to taking time to consider the questions that I designed this blog.
I just hope I can stay on the wagon this time.
