I heard you missed me … well, I’m back!
If you’re thinking that’s exactly what David Lee Roth says in Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher,” you’d be right. And I’m sure that’s what most of you was thinking, right?
It’s been over two months since I last launched a blog post, and that’s entirely too long. I’ve had gaps before, but this latest really takes the cake! Lots of factors contributed to this — as usual, work and life intruded in big ways and time became short. So the ol’ blog was shoved on a back burner for a while, kicking and screaming, left to simmer pointlessly away. But not forever …
Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, and after a few false starts, I’m ready to get behind the wheel again, ready to resurrect the shell of my once and future blog. I never thought it would be a permanent vacation. I always knew I would return to it, mainly because it’s so darn much fun!
So today I marched right out to that spot in the backyard where the dog buried my blog and I dug it up — with my bare hands, mind you! As a matter of fact, I was digging with one hand while fighting off the dog with the other!
Actually, that’s a lie. I don’t have a dog or a backyard, but I think you get the point — we’re rarin’ to go over here!
In the long run, a break may have been a good thing because, truth be told, I was growing a little bored with my blog — it began to seem like a lot of the same old same old. And I hate that! And if I’m bored I can only imagine how you all out there feel! So I’m planning lots of new stuff as I boldly launch SKC 2.0, mainly a bigger focus on writing while still maintaining the high level of photography and art you’ve come to expect from my blog. You might start seeing green lifestyle tips, more health and fitness and travel-specific articles and, of course, even more of the kooky stuff I find on the Internet.
Oh, and I just got back from two weeks in Japan, and that’s given me lots of interesting ideas for future posts … as well as lots of great photography to share with ya!!!
So, I heard you missed me … well, I’m back!
