My Mind Got Mixed With Ramblin’

I've been extremely neglectful of my blog. I'm not 100% sure why.... Actually, that's not true. I do know why. The fact that I've only posted 5 times since the new year doesn't surprise me. Maybe it should. Part of me feels disappointed in myself. The other part of me is a bit indifferent.

Part of the reason I don't post that often is that this blog, for the most part, has been about my work life. There have been some personal posts, but mostly, this blog is about my professional life in writing. On that front, it's not that there isn't anything to say. Far from it. I've been very fortunate lately to have a lot of stories/books getting published and I try to mention all that here on the blog. But, I don't do it with a lot of fanfare or entertainment. It's more matter of fact and almost a "hey just wanted to let you know" vibe.

The rest of my life, well, I'm not sure why I don't share more of that here. Maybe I feel like no one really wants to hear it. Or, more likely, I feel like my life is kind of boring. I mean, I work from home, so all of my ridiculous stories of working in offices/stores are gone. Not much happens around here. I mean, sure, I have computer issues from time to time that do drive me crazy, but who wants to hear about that? I mean, really?

Sure, there's stuff happening in my life. Big stuff. Major stuff, at least to me. But, why do I choose not to share it? I don't know. Fear, I guess. I mean, putting your stuff out there in the world and getting no feedback, or worse, negative feedback is a daunting thought. It's not that I don't want to share the good going on in my life. I guess I'm not really sure how to go about it. I'm envious of people who say anything and everything on the blogs/tumblrs/etc. I wish I could. Hell, maybe I should.

Anyway, I've decided to work on posting more, being more open, sharing more of my life. We'll see how it goes. No promises, but as with most things in my life, it's all a work in progress. Besides, I miss posting Man Candy. I have folders and folders on my computer of pictures just waiting to be seen. So, to that end, here is some Candy for y'all. I hope you like it. And, stay tuned. There may just be a reason to come to this blog for a change.
