What Happens On Hiatus Doesn't Stay On Hiatus

Day one featured random thoughts of abandonment zipping through my brain at breakneck speed as I couldn't stop thinking about how my loyal readers would vacate the premises once my blog settled into hiatus mode.

Day two featured a calmer mood and greater appreciation for all things that surround me. Day two also featured an internal slap across the face for thinking such a pedestrian thought.

Day three through nine featured all kinds of interesting things, including rediscovering my warped sense of humor (FB), pushing various people's buttons (FB), non-hysterical discussions on certain hot topic issues (FB), writing with music and music.

Re: Music.

I spent an ungodly amount of my hiatus listening to music and/or getting lost within myself. I rediscovered a few parts of myself that were long thought buried, and after doing some writing to music, rediscovered my passion for blogging.

I actually came up with a few music related posts while I was getting lost within myself and during the past weekend (14th & 15th), felt relaxed enough to sit outdoors within the shade of Cedar Mountain and start fleshing them out. I have one post already written and a partial one in my folder of fun, and as I go about my day-to-day activities, will probably jot down a few ideas that I have percolating on the back burner

As for this blog, while I have rediscovered my passion for blogging, I am still very leery of going back to a schedule. So to avoid putting undue stress on myself, especially since I've decide to slightly refocus my efforts with my writing (more on that much later in the program), I decided to borrow a page from everyone else out there who blogs and (sort of) blog on the fly.

If I got something that is ready to post, I'll post. If I don't, I won't stress about it.

I'm not quite sure what other changes I might make to this blog, content-wise, but you can be sure that I'll clue everyone in before I do it.

To liven up your Prince Spaghetti day, I leave you with a song that has been humming in the background of my mind while I was writing this post.


  1. Hahahaha, I wondered how long it would be until you were back! Blogging on the fly is definitely the way to go. Life is full of too many rules as it is so we bloggers shouldn't overburden ourselves with more.

  2. Debra: Blogging on the fly is something that I rarely do anymore. I used to do it during the first couple of years, then I switched off when I start writing them out on paper.

    To tell you the truth, I was finding myself getting too comfortable in not blogging, so by the beginning of this week, I was getting antsy.

  3. For a minute there I was dreaming of going to Vegas... (title)

    This post reminds me of my vaca week so far.... strangely enough! Trying not to do much, but getting busy anyhow... missing sleep today too!

    Not trying too hard has it's rewards

  4. Snaggle: That was the basic idea. I was tryin to find a happy medium playing off the popular catch phrase. :D

    Yup, trying not too hard definitely has its rewards.

  5. Is it fair to leave us humming this all day? It's good you are back in the saddle again:)

  6. Post when you can, G. I'm glad you feel blogily rejuvenated.

  7. G.A.: Absolutely!

    And thanks, it's great to back in the saddle as well.

    Lynn: Bloggily rejuvenated...I like that!

    Charles: As a co-worker is fond of calling me, I am the man, for I can post videos that can guarantee to make you scratch your head.

  8. Well I am glad it was a productive hiatus. And glad you are still blogging :)

  9. M: Thanks. And I'm glad I'm still blogging (albiet probably more sporadic) as well.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
