“Did you stop blogging?”
“Are you dead?”
“How come you aren’t giving more stuff away?”
All of these questions were not asked by anyone. In fact, nobody seems to have noticed that I haven’t written a blog post in three weeks.
Should that worry me? After eight years, and thousands of posts, does anyone still regularly read this blog?
I’ve been away because, for the past month, I’ve been involved in a massive fundraising activity for my son’s Scout troop. Well, not massive, but relatively big. Bigger than anything I’ve done before.
We just finished selling nearly $8000 worth of honey, BBQ sauce, and honey mustard. This involved a lot of standing around outside grocery stores pleading with people to buy our cute little honey bears. And they did, almost 700 bottles of the stuff.
It was a wonderful day when we packed up the signs and tables for the last time. The phrase, “Would you like to buy some honey to support my scout troop?” will forever echo in my memory.
Now I can tackle the to-do list that has been building for four weeks. And that includes quite a few unwritten blog posts.
To answer the questions:
Yes, I stopped blogging. But only temporarily. I have no intention to give up this blog just yet.
No, I’m not dead. I just need some sun.
In fact, I do have some cool things to give away. Watch this blog in the next few days for a contest from Wendy’s!
