Return to the blogosphere

At another time, in another place, I once was a blogger.

I blogged about my stupid, crazy, and wild life.
I vented and I ranted.
I reflected and I rejoiced.
I had loyal readers and (dare I say it) FRIENDS in the blogosphere who kept coming back week after week, always commenting. Kind, funny and thoughtful words.
I played "Meet and Greet".

Then I met a man, fell in love, moved to an out of the way place, and got married.
Blogging, and its associated perks, disappeared from my life.

Now, several years later, I find myself in the throes of a divorce and being compelled to re-join the blogosphere.

I need my outlet to vent and rant. To reflect and rejoice.

Blogging was cathartic. A way to work my way through problems to a satisfactory solution. A celebration of life. A significant part of who I was.

For a while that person got lost.

I'm getting back to my roots.

Once a blogger, always a blogger. The writer in me believes we all have a unique voice, and we all have a need to make that voice heard. It's good to be hearing yours again!

I'm sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ability to turn your life around when you found love was inspiring. I'm sorry it ended.
