I owe you a letter. Or three . . .
1) Thank-You Note:
Your support and interest and encouragement in my first three weeks of blogging have been a gift! Thank you, every one of you, for the comments, emails, subscriptions and advice.
I love writing again and I’m so glad to have found a new home. Getting to know the place, but the neighborhood is really nice.
With appreciation, Cindy
2) Letter of Apology:
From what I’ve learned in 3 weeks, a GOOD blogger is a CONSISTENT blogger. I can see now that twice a week would be a solid, do-able goal. Ambitious, perhaps, but reasonable.
And yet? I’ve come to this “lightbulb moment” on the tenth day since my last post! Oops.
Alright, maybe once a week is a solid, do-able goal, etc. I plan to be more faithful and consistent. There are a LOT of great blogs to read and I don’t want to waste your time. I am truly sorry and appreciate your patience.
Cindy Lamb Sterling
3) Blank Card: (insert your own image here – some choices? Birds are BIG now. Anything with brown in the design . . . brown and pink, brown and robin’s egg blue, brown and lemongrass . . .) Open the card and read my adorably illegible scrawl:
Be my friend, okay? I started blogging and didn’t take into account how much time would be involved and well, I had this trip to California planned months before I got the urge to blog so that threw me way off (though I have a great draft I started on the plane, it’s still not ready to post . . .) and well, now I’m having surgery in the morning (no, it’s not THAT serious, but I do get to spend a few nights in the hospital . . . wait, maybe it IS serious!?!?) and well, anyway, I’m more nervous and scattered than I thought I’d be and I don’t have a decent post ready!?! Forgive me??? You’re the best! Love ya, mean it!
P.S. to all of the above: I have a sneaking suspicion that a new blogger is only allowed ONE of these lazy self-indulgent last-minute posts in a lifetime. Fair enough. And though it’s entirely too early to cash in on that deal? I’m going for it. Heck, the surgeon might be having an off-day and it’s Nurse! Code Blue!? Then I’ll become “the blogger with so much unrealized potential who left us all too soon . . .”
