I know, I know

You're right. You're right. I know you're right.

Apologies, dear readers. It has been an unforgivable amount of time since I posted last. Here is my explanation that I hope you will accept:

I started this blog thinking that I would have all kinds of things to talk about because of the move. And I did...for a while. I blogged all about my reasons for moving out of Los Angeles and to Seattle. Then there was this odd lull between deciding to go and preparing to go. I thought I could fill the time with TED videos and photos and randomness. I think I did okay for a while, but really I wanted this blog to be about the move and my life. So, I took a break and worked on other stuff. Then things started happening that I could actually blog about and I got too busy to blog. The irony. It's like an
Alanis Morissette song in here.

My promises of posting regularly are worthless now. I am the girl who cried blog.

However, I think I have learned what my issue is. It all stems from being a columnist for a website a few years ago. I'd send you the link, but the columns were removed when they revamped the site. My columns were two-three pages of information and were more like papers you would write for college classes. They were well researched and some say well written (despite my objections to the contrary). I'd look at my blog and I would see it as homework. And who the hell wants to do homework when the season finale of "Lost" is on? Not me. This shouldn't be work. This should be fun for both me to write and you to read.

I am going to attempt to alter my thinking and be a blogger not a columnist.

Keep it short. Keep it simple. Crap I've written too much already, haven't I? Okay, this may take some time to get the hang of. I promise to stop. I'm still writing aren't I?

You're right. You're right. I know you're right.

Welcome back from the ether. As for the columnist/work feeling when posting, I'm so in the thick with you on it. And I enjoyed your FBR columns so don't get down on them. Lastly, I love that classic When Harry Met Sally close.

I knew someone would pick that up. :)
