Dear DJers — and you know who you are — for the next few days, starting in about an hour when I head up to the airport to make a pick-up, I am entertaining family and taking a break.
This blog was born a year ago. I started it on advice of my publisher to push book sales. I believe I’ve sold one book through these efforts, because in general people read the book (if they read the book) and then find this blog.
No matter. I had to stop and think because I’d forgotten why I started it, anyway. Since it’s birth, I’ve posted something like 3,500 entries, and read 22,000 comments. And this is the first time I’ve stepped away for a breather and I have to admit, it feels weird.
But I want to spend time with visiting family, and I promised myself I would work on a new book project (currently only in fetal form) before the year is up. Otherwise, I will do what I’ve been doing, which is sit down to check the blog and look up and it’s an hour later and I’m still laughing from something someone said.
Hey! Look! A chicken!
I love you all, and in my absence, please feel free to chat among yourselves. I will return mid-week because I don’t think I can stay away from these conversations a moment longer than that. I’ll sign back on and you can talk me down from whatever height I’ve scaled, just like always.
MWAH. Big Internet kiss. Onward! Into the fray! And stuff!
