I Owe You An Apology.

Life is getting ahead of me again.

I realize I've let my posting slide, which often signals the death knell for blogs. Rest assured I have no intention of stopping my activities here, although they've thinned out lately. And with good reason.

Since September, I've been pretty much booked solid in terms of writing projects. I've landed one very prolific new regular and seen no slacking off with my old regulars; most of my month is dedicated to keeping them happy. And then there are the new projects: one very large new one spanning multiple months, and a few shorter challenges to keep me on my toes. My writing business is taking off, and I haven't quite gotten into a groove yet that allows comfortable time for blogging. But I will.

If it was just the writing, that would be manageable. But I've seen some major changes in my personal life as well. I'm currently plotting a major move, and just ended a nine-year relationship. Big upheaval.

Regular posting will start again here, but I'm not completely sure when. Hopefully it will this week. That's what I said last week.

In the meantime, if you're interested in guest posting, please get in touch--this will help me fill the gaps. You'll get links within the post and I'll make sure my blogroll also links to your blog, if it doesn't already.

Thanks--and hopefully I'll be back on a regular schedule next week at the latest, after I've moved into my new place.

Hey Jennifer,

Know the feeling. Certainly doesn't feel like a recession in my office! And yes, my blog has taken a back seat as well (though I did manage a post today after a lightning bolt of inspiration).

Sorry to hear about your personal troubles. Those always need to come first, so I don't think apologies are necessary. But here's hoping your major move is a successful one.

Oh, there really is no need to apologize, Jennifer. We are here for you whenever you can manage. I'm sorry to hear about the end of your long-term relationship but here is to opening to door to allow something new into your life.

I'll have a think over and see if anything in the way of a suitable guest post pleads to be written. :-) Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to more of the brilliance you bring to this blog.

What these guys said. We're here.

I may have a suitable guest post idea for you. Let me work on it.

And hugs to you - life is allowed to get in the way of blogging.

Hang in there, Jennifer, that's a lot going on at once.

I'd be delighted to guest post, if you're still looking.

Jennifer:

Nothing so constant as change.

Let me know if you need guest posts.
