I’m not doing such a great job at maintaining this blog, despite the extra hour and half of child free time in my day. Hell I’m not doing a great job maintaining my political/culture blog. I am going blame the fact that I am trying to play catch up with how far behind I’ve fallen with bills this summer because my income was essentially cut in half. I will also not blame but admit that being in a serious long distance relationship means a different kind of attention and time commitment (insert your comments here for those that have followed/have been involved in past relationships with me). I also just fell out of the habit when self-censorship took effect. Clearly I don’t need to and probably shouldn’t blog about everything (who really wants to read about my sex life—or do you?). I think the distance was/is good in that I was forced to be more introspective, channel thoughts into poetry or my journal, or ::gasp:: have more conversations with people.
But the truth is I am also having less conversations with people (except for my kids, my pareja, and my immediate familia). So I want to come back and find my voice again, find my passion.
I’m trying to get better.
I don’t have the same time I did when I was a single mami to one kid.
What I have been trying to to is jot bloggable thoughts in my notebook so that when I do have time I don’t have to grasp for a fake-ass issue to write about.
It also adds a layer of editing.
A ver como funciona and if I can get back into it.
