Blogger’s Block

Can it be? I haven’t written a post since March 2014?! Wow, where did the time go? Well, it wasn’t like I was a regular blogger to begin with, but seriously that’s six months! Shameful I know. To be fair, I have been busy with my new job and then there was summer vacation. Okay, that just sounds like a lame excuse. I know what happened, I developed “Blogger’s Block”, a condition worse than the common writer’s block. Once you stop blogging it is like 100 times harder to go back and write something or anything, really. You stop visiting your own website and feel bad for any loyal visitor who comes back day after day only to see the same post about a donut that I ate back in March. Granted, those were some yummy donuts. So now it is time for me to promise that I will return to my former semi-regular pattern of blogging, but that would be a comfortable lie. No, I cannot promise that, but I do at least aspire to write about something interesting, and maybe even helpful. I’ve read some truly great technical blog posts recently that sure helped me out (Thanks Jonas for your post about resolving an annoying SSRS Scale-out Deployment Error. Check out his blog:

Okay, it’s Friday night and I am off to eat some pizza and spend time with the family. That sounds like a Tweet… Hmmm. That reminds me, I haven’t tweeted in quite some time. Appears that my blogger’s block has transferred to my social networks.

    I was so happy to see this post this morning! What a stressful 6 months, eh? Sometimes we don’t even realize that we are being pulled in too many directions until we are free! 😀

    Yay, freedom! I am very proud of you.

    I am looking forward to your future posts.

    And really, at least *your* last post was cool, done on the road, shared local love, and had nice photos!

    Me, I shared not one, but two “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On” videos! Hah!

      Thank you! Road posts seem easier because I just lived the experience that I am writing about. As you know, I am working on a fun Mac app and maybe that project will inspire a few posts. 🙂 Thanks again for your support! I always look forward to reading all of your posts at Tempered With Kindness! You are so much more disciplined about regular updates. I actually plan to post at least once a week. I wonder how a frequently blogger like Will Wheaton is able to do this day after day? Self promotion must be exhausting.

          Aww… you are too cute! I love your blog and especially that post! I am very proud of you for getting Tempered With Kindness started and sticking to it. I know how challenging it is to write your own bio… just look how blank the “About Me” section of my blog is! 😉

          Keep on “gettin‘er done!”
