I’m having an off-week. At least when it comes to the bloggy.
You see, my co-worker quit just a little while ago. And so, I have taken on her responsibilities as Training Coordinator.
I am now the Administrative Assistant/Office Manager/Training Coordinator.
With the same pay I started with a year ago.
I’m not insanely crazy busy as a result, but I do have a little bit more work to do.
May will be a busy month with training classes, so I won’t find myself with quite so much free time while at work. And the free time I do find, I’m usually catching up on all the interesting Twitter conversations or the blog posts from the eleventy million blogs I follow (may be a slight exaggeration). Or I’m looking up law schools.
I know I don’t have to do these things. I do them because I love them. And I’ve joined the communities (like The Red Dress Club) simply to help hold myself accountable. I have an audience simply so I feel obligated to write. Not obligated in a bad way – in a good way. I want to write. I need to write. Seriously. It helps my sanity.
The point is, I’m doing this writing for me. And only me. But the audience helps hold me accountable. If I think there are people waiting to read my words, I’m more likely to get those words out.
But I’m not an attention whore. I swear.
I’m just really into this blogging community. It’s freaking crazy. There are so many awesome blogs. I love reading these words so much; I want to be able to share them all with you. And through Twitter I’ve been able to “meet” some really neat people. I’ve never felt so much a part of a community than I have these days. There is always someone around to chat with. Or I can post random questions, and I know that somebody somewhere is going to see my question and give me an answer. Sometimes quicker than I can find it on Google (Which I proved last night when I asked about the monster story my kiddo read in school. as I was on Google trying to find the answer for myself, someone came on Twitter with the answer. Voila!)
So I don’t know. I’m not even sure where I’m really going with this. I’m just glad to be a part of this community, because it’s the bloggy and the bloggy people who are helping me write. Who are helping me figure things out.
I suppose I could do all this writing in a private journal…but what fun is that? I’ve been there, done that fifty-thousand-hundred times. And I always writewritewritewrite for about a week. And then I lose the motivation.
I lost my train of thought. Happens a lot when I’m doing this.
Anyway, stay tuned for tomorrow. Red Writing Hood will be up – and I think jealous was kind of an interesting topic for me to tackle. Because, you might not know this, but I’m totally jealous of you.
