Once again, I've fallen off the wagon in posting regularly on my blog. Life has been full, in a good way. Since my last post, we've had a family wedding, celebrated Labor Day with a family barbeque, and I took a trip with my sister-in-law Jenny to see my niece in Albuquerque. It's hard to believe that September is almost half over already.
Once again, I've decided to change things up a bit here at the Backyard Fence. I don't want to give up my blog, but I've decided I'm going to post less frequently and not try to stick with a schedule. I've been slowly pulling out of social media such as Facebook and even Goodreads. I find that as much as I love keeping up with friends and family on FB, and even though Goodreads is a great format for keeping up on books to read and those I've read, -- for me, along with trying to keep a 'regular' format for blogging -- these things are a bit like going on vacation with a really good camera. It's great to take notes and record all the highlights, but after a while I'm finding it hard to just live in the moment. I see everything with an eye for how to record it or write about it on my social media accounts.
So, I've gone back to keeping track of the books that I read in my little spiral notebook, and I'm getting better about texting and calling family and friends to keep in touch. And I hope to focus more on some of projects that came out of the writing seminar I attended a couple of weeks ago.
I'll still be dropping by to visit the blogs on my Feedly list, and I'll see where this new plan of mine takes me as far as blogging here.
Just trying to roll with the punches and fit everything in!
Hugs to all,
