Blogpology

It's that time, fancied friends, when I re-enter the blogosphere in hopes that there's somebody still there. That time where I profusely apologize for being absent, though it always strikes me a bit vain that I would apologize to YOU for not having any writing of MINE for you to read.

When I'm doing a show, it's hard for me to write. I don't know why. I guess my creative energies are focused somewhere else, or maybe I'm getting all the recognition I need through applause and "Good show"s. Maybe I don't feel the need to prove myself anymore.

Is blogging really all about self-validation?

Sometimes, maybe.

But not all the time. I like it. I like hearing from you guys and reading about what's going on in your lives. I like writing. I like trying to find the memorable things in my day, the small seemingly inconsequential that holds meaning if we'd just let it. And I like sharing it with you. The big things, too. I like holding myself accountable to my own goals and dreams by archiving them. I like having a way to look back.

So, really, I think the reason for my absence, is...I'm just worn out. WIth my free time I want to talk to my husband and catch up on my shows and sleep in and go to church.

But the show's closing this weekend, and I'm preparing mentally for that. which involves remembering how much I like this here form of communication and expression. I hope you guys are still there. Holler if you are. Anyone out there?

Have I told you lately that you're one of my favorite people? You totally are. Beeki and I miss you. Tell that sweet guy of yours hello, and we'll chat soon.

Still alive and kicking, and I always enjoy reading anything you write here, when you have time and inspiration to write!

You're not alone -- the whole blogosphere seems kinda slow lately. There are probably different reasons for each different person, but they've all hit at about the same time, it seems. Me, I've always been a "doesn't blog often enough" blogger. I leave long comments on other blogs, in lieu of actual blogging.

Hello friends! Glad to know you're still here. =-) Hope all is well.

Hey! I'm still here! Wow! Your show is already coming to an end... that was quick. It stinks I can't see it! Mom and dad told me it was amazing and you were amazing in it. Hope to talk soon. In Singapore now, but about to go back in for good this time :) I want to call when everything settles down a bit.

Love you

Still here. Always happy to see you've got a new post up, but I don't feel like you've neglected us when you go a while between. My blog is less frequently updated (and less-read) than yours.

For you:
applauseGood Show!

Same here. I've hardly written in months. We close next week and I'm curious as to whether the ideas will start flowing again.

Congrats again on Equity...I'm jealous.

Still here. Checking in every few days to see if you've posted anything new. Still interested in your life there in the big city! Blessings!

Hey guys! Glad you're all here! =-)

Baca, I got your VM today and I'm so bummed i missed you. The caller ID said "Unknown," and that's always trouble, so... I don't have a number to call you back, so call me or email. We can skype if you want. Love you.

Still checking in when i can! Which will be much more frequently now that tax season is over. Working at a CPA firm has a few perks.....working like a dog and then BAM...April 15th comes and it all slows down (well, a little bit anyway!).

Love the pictures of your show and all your Nanny Diaries!!
