I have been noticeably absent from the blogging public lately. Don’t get me wrong; I have been all over the blogosphere, reading, appreciating, and commenting. I’ve discovered even more amazing writers to try to keep up with, but it’s the actual execution of my own blog that has been missing. I disappeared into my own head, doubted my abilities; gave in to my fear. I was hoping to sop up all the awesomeness, and be inspired and challenged, but it backfired.
I have found myself reading voraciously the last week or so. Blogs, newsletters, articles; one thing linking me to another, and then another. Mostly I have been focused on travel blogs and tips, career options, tips for making a living writing, and so forth. Frankly, the amount of information I have been consuming is overwhelming, even though it is exciting to read about others’ experiences, and see how they share them.
