Blogging this month has been a bit difficult. Mostly because I'm still trying to figure out this work/life/blogging/derby balance. Because I spent most days formatting other peoples documents the last thing I generally want to do when I get home is blog...or write for that matter. I've had a lot of trouble writting at all this month. At first I thought it was just because I had nothing to write about but you and I both know that's a lie. I ALWAYS have something I could be writing about. Then I thought maybe it was because I was busy with derby and work. Nope, if I can still find 45 minutes to pin things like it's going out of style then I have time to write.
Basically my brain needed a vaction from writing. The last thing I want to do when I get home at night is open yet another word document and work on that. I spend my days making documents look just right so I just couldn't stomach working on something at home because I knew by brain would go into work mode not writer mode. To the point where when I was editing this I actually formatted it to UPU standard. Yup, it was justified, no curly quotes and I even checked for paragraph spacing. What can I say...it's been a long week.
I have a few deadlines for project on the horizon that will help get me back into the habit (like oh I don't know the Five on Five article I have due in April...) but I'm also doing the A to Z blogging challenge again this year. I did it in 2012 and had a ball. I decided to do it again this year because since I started working outside the home I've lost the habit of writing everyday so here is my attempt to do a little bit of writing every day.
That kicks off on Tuesday. There will be a blog post every day except Sundays...in alphabetical order. Hooray.
