I said I was taking a blogging hiatus, and I meant it.
What I needed to do though was just take back my blog. And that is what I'm doing.
You see for months I have been given a steady stream of degrading comments...some you've seen, some you haven't because I finally said 'enough' and stopped allowing them to post-- from people with all the time in the world to give their opinions when they really don't know what they're talking about.
And I let them get to me, I admit it.
I let it eat at me over time and it got to a point when, combined with the silence of those I thought would be there to help me celebrate the achievement of finishing my book even with all the odds that were stacked against it, I caved in.
Then I got mad.
And I realized I have invested a lot of my heart into this place the past two years and I'll be damned if I'm going to let a few nay-sayers and no-shows finish it off.
It's not time yet, apparently I still have more to say.
So follow or opt out if you choose, but my thoughts, here, will still go on. Until a time as I am truly out of things to say, or share that I think could make someone think or feel or help them somehow, even if only to know they're not alone feeling the way they do.
So to those who tried to push...sorry. I'm still here.
Opening up a new box of Twinkies...anyone care to join me?
