This isn’t anything but an honest question. Should I shut this blog down?
I ask because the realities of my life are such that — no matter how much I want to do it — writing is one of the last things I get to do. My morning are always taken up by the same routine, which is basically about four hours of this.
Then I go to lunch. Then come back, and take care of whatever has landed on my desk. Then I start reading and compiling the stuff I’ll have to copy and paste the next day. Or I go to a meeting where laptops are not allowed.
Then I go home. On the train, might attempt to do some reading or writing of my own., have dinner, play with the kids, put them to bed and talk to the hubby. Then, then I finally have time to do the reading or writing I want to do. And, of course, physical exhaustion sets in, and I have to give it up and go to bed. (Because I’ve got to do it all over again the next day.)
Thus, if I do write more than a couple of paragraphs about something, it takes me several days. In the meantime, I get to find out during my morning routine how many other people have already written about it, and that I no longer have much to add.
So I don’t post much here. Or anywhere, really. I wondered today if it’s time for me to give up this blog. I still have posting privileges at Pams, Booman, Bilerico, and the Huffington Post. But it wouldn’t be the same as having a place of my own where I wan post whatever I want.
On the other hand, how much time to I have to post here? (I’m already late for the train and the rest of my evening, and it’ll be at least three hours more before I have time to read or write anything.)
