Well, that’s kind of a loaded question.
I mean, I did go to Nashville for Blissdom but I also just haven’t been here, in the bloggy world much at all this last week. I haven’t even posted anything here since LAST Sunday night. That’s a week ago. I don’t think I’ve gone a week without posting since like 2007. Seriously.
I also kind of haven’t been in my own head. Or I’ve been out of my mind. Whichever way you want to word it.
Let’s put it this way, Tim went “dumpster diving” in our very own kitchen trash to find my camera card (with all Blissdom pics on it…) earlier today. I was thinking about 82 bajillion other things yesterday when I pulled it out of the camera and ran around tidying up the house and generally going crazy and that’s where it ended up. In the trash can. Fabulous.
I’ve also just been thinking about some things that I took away from the conference, like how to keep this space true to me but still garner readers after a four year run.
I continue to evolve as a blogger, a writer and even a photographer. I don’t claim to be a professional at any of these things but I do KNOW that there is a little of each of them in me.
I also know that I’m a mother, a wife, a sister, an aunt, a daughter, a friend. Something that did stick with me is that I need to live some
more of my life outside of “this box” (thank you Robin) and I feel like I do a pretty good job of that. Most days. Sometimes, maybe not as much.
I will talk more about the fun of the conference but right now I’m still processing some of the topics that were presented and discussed there, and even the awesome and wonderfully inspiring opening keynote by Brene Brown. I mean, WOW. (meaning, she’s amazing)…
I hope people will continue to read here because I can inspire and/or entertain them or even because they consider me a friend and are invested in my life. I know these are some of the reasons why I keep up with so many of you, as best I can. And also why I keep up with my quote, “real life” friends too (although the two are definitely crossing over in many cases…). Because that’s what it’s really all about, I think. Caring about and for each other, no matter whether we’ve met IRL or not (hi Kami!!)
And this space IS about me and what and who I care about. So, what you read and see IS what you get. That’s really all there is to it…
And yes, I’m back. In body anyway. My mind is still in question. But then that’s nothing new. 😉
