I received a very honest and loving email today from someone I look up to very dearly. The email was short and simple and said “Nicole, A blogger is supposed to blog….” and I responded quietly to myself with a chuckle and thought “no sh**!”
A blogger is supposed to blog and I am not sure what my problem has been. I think for a while there I was feeling overwhelmed with my day-to-day life and didn’t feel like I had the strength to do anything else. Then the holiday season came and I took some time off work, thinking it would give me the perfect break to write. Unfortunately, I ended up being just as busy not working as I am working; with presents to buy and friends and family to catch up with. Then there was a short period of time after the holidays and right before I had to go back to work, where I didn’t have anything to do, which would be the perfect time to write – right?
It would have been the perfect time to write, except for I was feeling uninspired. I was feeling uninspired! I hate even saying those words because I want this blog to be an inspiration to everyone reading, and how do you inspire if you are uninspired. You can’t.
And it was the last part of this email that really knocked the wind out of me: “I’m going to quit checking for your new stuff pretty soon.”
This statement is so powerful because the author of this email is probably one of my biggest fans (or at least, that’s what I like to think) and it meant there are people who continue to check my site.
So, to all my loyal fans out there – I am sorry and I promise you I will no longer give you the silent treatment. I have a lot of great things to write about, so expect more to come SOON!
And to you-know-who-you-are: Thank you! And I love you too! (emoticons allowed!!!)
