It dawned on me, just at this moment why I’ve stopped blogging. It’s not intentional, I certainly have just as many ideas happily bouncing around in my head during the day that I’ve always had. I pulled out my blogging notebook the other day, the place where I keep my ideas for posts and dusted it off. I thought to myself that even if I don’t have access to a computer that if I keep it with me I can perhaps jot down part of a post to simply type later.
The bottom line? I’ve been busy as can be at work. I suddenly realized this afternoon as I sat literally surrounded and drowning in books, toys, cds, and media to catalog that I used to come in every morning and while drinking my coffee I’d open a web browser and quickly type out a post with a fresh mind. The office would be quiet at that time of day and I could write away unobserved.
Is it a good practice to blog at work? Probably not, unless your job involves such applications.
This school year in general has been chaotic to say the least. I’m down to the wire with preparations for our statewide conference which occurs at the end of April. We operated for part of the year without a budget and have spent the remainder frantically trying to catch up. I find myself taking on many new roles in my work place, that while good for job security do increase any flexibility that I once had.
I hope to blog more soon. I miss it. I really do. I haven’t gone away, really…
