I did not want to disappear so that nobody ever finds me. I disappeared to find time, and I’m afraid to report that time to do all things I love is still not enough.
Then a post by Suvi, one the bloggers I enjoy reading inspired me to write this post. As I’ve mentioned on the “About” page that I started this blog in order to keep up with friends and family. But this exercise went beyond my immediate friends and family, I’ve met so many wonderful people through this blog and that’s why I feel slightly guilty for my disappearance and inconsistent blogging schedule. I simply do not have enough time at this point to keep up with two blogs.
Yes, I have two blogs. The idea of mixing business and personal never appealed much to me, which is of course, ridiculous considering that poetry is sort of personal in nature. This, however does not mean that every poem I write is autobiographical. I simple mean there’s always a piece of self revealed in a poem one writes, and people understand poetry in their own way or don’t even like the genre.
It is one of the reasons, I never imposed my poetry into this personal blog. But now that I can’t keep up with posting on both, I think it fair to provide a link to the poetry blog for readers, who are interested to make contact there, and as I post there weekly. And as Suvi puts it, “Before, I was very wary of my privacy…These days I don’t give a hoot!”
I remain grateful for your support and that you continue to read this blog, even when I’m not around. Time schedules will hopefully settle in the future and I’ll able to resume a decent blogging pace, but for now you can find here and here. It would be lovely to connect.
And last, I would love hear how you balance blogging or writing in general.
Enjoy what is left of the weekend, folks!
