My consistency as a blogger sucks right about now. Yeah, I know. It’s one of the golden rules of blogging BE CONSISTENT, but then again I have never really been one to follow the rules – so I guess I can let that slide.
Life has been all kinds of crazy around here for a few weeks. The type of crazy where you mix looking after two elderly parents, one with Dementia and one with Alzheimer, with school holidays, job interviews and freezing cold weather. Can you see the picture? Oh, we’ve been having some moments. You know those ones where you choose to laugh because the only other alternative is to cry. Hang on, there was this one time where I actually did both. And it was surprisingly cathartic.
This is only momentary madness though. Life will return to our version of normal, which only includes one elderly parent, fairly soon. School went back this week as well which means in a couple of days I’ll find time to indulge my introverted nature and take some breathing space for my soul. Then life will feel a little more harmonious and a little less crazy. (It’s relaxing just thinking about it.)
Despite the general neglect going on around here, I am very happy to report that my Kidspot Put Yourself On The Map (#shareaustralia) post has been chosen as one of the top 20 posts in the competition. Meaning I’ve now been commissioned (now that’s a word that makes you feel like a true online creative) to produce and expanded version which will be published on Kidspot. Thank you Kidspot. I can’t wait to start work on the 10 best family adventures to be had in around the beautiful town of Ballarat. So seriously chuffed to have my work recognised in this way.
Most of my other writing work is falling a little behind. I have posts that should have been posted and emails that should have been answered. But that too will happen. Perhaps not overnight – but it will happen (she says as she shakes out her long flowing hair). So, if you’ve been waiting on me please know I haven’t forgotten you and I’ll be back in touch soon.
In the meantime, amidst all the madness a few other little rays of sunshine have been lighting up my life. I’ve had two fabulous local job interviews for part-time project management and marketing work, which I’ve strangely enjoyed. I have a second interview for both; so fingers are crossed I’ll be adding some new endeavours to the Caz Filmer Write’s bow soon. We’ve also established a PR & Social Good group for Ballarat Bloggers and I’m loving linking our local bloggers up with fun and interesting local attractions and businesses and seeing the social media synergy start to bubble away. I love social media synergy! It’s seriously so cool to see the way it develops an individual personality – every single time.
So there we go little blog. You no longer need to feel neglected. I have written all over you – much more than I intended to write actually. And I am once again reminded why I have this space and just how much I love to let words fall out of my fingers. There is something so fancy-free and peaceful about letting all of your words go on a blog. Do you find that? Is it what keeps you blogging too?
