I make lists of things to do. Last week, as I was making my to-do list, I realized that blogging had moved from "want to" to "have to."
When I returned to the workforce in July (I'm a technical writer and spend most of my days hunched over a computer), I knew it would interfere with my blogging. I've tried various approaches - getting up at 5:00 in the morning to write (aargh), writing three or four posts on Sunday and then publishing them during the week. But the fact remains that something from which I have derived so much pleasure in the past now feels like just more work.
So I'm taking a blogging sabbatical, so to speak - a break until that day when I think - Wow! I can't wait to write about that!
