Wow. It’s been five weeks without a post here. I’m sorry that there haven’t been more updates, but Eric and I were so busy with the Herbal Magic Correspondences Guide that I just didn’t have the time or energy for blogging. However, I promised that I would not let this blog die, and I intend to keep my word. I’m going to try to get back into blogging again, although I’m not quite sure what form it’s going to take.
For lack of a better way to put it, I’m kind of “articled out” right now. I used to be able to write several articles a day, but my mind has been in a very different place because of the book. Now that the Herbal Guide is done, I’m already working on another book. I guess I’m going to have my head in that space a lot, and that’s not really a bad thing. It means you won’t get the kind of articles you’re used to for a while, but it does mean that I’m still writing. If you want to see the fruits of my labor, I guess you’ll just have to buy the books. [smiles]
I am going to try to bring two things to the blog: positive stuff and personal stuff. Honestly I suck at talking about myself and my life, but I feel like the world needs to know who I am. I want you all to become readers, fans and friends, so I need to put myself out there in a way that you can all connect to. I’ll try to keep it upbeat, but to be honest, I’ve been kind of down lately. I’ve been putting in a lot of effort on a lot of things and not getting good results. However, if I can keep my vibe up, I hope that all of that will turn around. As for the positive, I’m trying to think of what to do for that, but I haven’t nailed it down yet. I guess we’ll see what happens when it happens.
As for that being down bit, well, there’s always a way for you folks out there to help. Commenting on the blog is always great. I love connecting to the readers and making new friends. I am more than happy to chat with people through comments. Don’t be afraid to get social. It’s all casual around here. Sharing is good too. My biggest problem is that my work just isn’t getting in front of enough eyeballs. The wider the word of me and my work spreads, the more likely it is that I’ll get sales. And so, of course, there’s the sales bit. My focus is on my books, Zazzle and my crafts. I really want those to get moving and have all of that amazing stuff I’ve created out there in the world. I need the money, but really, I get a lot of joy from each sale because I know someone out there owns something that I put effort and love into and it’s making them happy. That’s a great feeling.
So… I’m going to try to blog daily again, but I’m not making promises. I’ll do my best. We’re going to be moving in December, which means most of November is going to be kind of crazy as we pack and try to find a place and all of that. I’m really nervous about all that, but I’m hoping something works out to make it better. And since it’s been mentioned, I’m still trying to raise funds for the move, so we can get a washer and drier and car and the other stuff that we need. We really haven’t raised enough yet, so any donations and shares are really appreciated.
With any luck, all of the positive energy that I put into the herbal book and all of the positive energy I’m trying to muster will manifest itself into a great new life for us. I really need for things to turn around and be awesome. I think it’s long overdue. All happy and successful thoughts, wishes and magic you’d like to send is welcomed and appreciated.
