Dear Whoever Still Reads My Blog Even Though I Frequently Vanish From It,               July 29th, 2012

I won’t pretend to have a really good reason to justify my disappearing acts but I have a reason- Wordpress for some reason wouldn’t let me sign in successfully to my account. Therefore, I couldn’t really post as much as I wanted to. Anywho, enough excuses let’s move on.

I recently found a new blog to follow through the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress. It’s called Hayley Made: http://hayleymade.wordpress.com/  And even for having just 5 posts to start off with, I think it’s off to a really amazing start. It’s a pretty awesome blog. I like it a lot. So I followed it. I actually took it upon myself to make one of the things on the blog, a 3 dimensional letter made of newspaper. It looks way cooler than it sounds, trust me. It’s pretty amazing. Time consuming, but cool nonetheless.

There is a reason I mentioned the aforementioned blog, it inspired me. I have always liked to think of myself as a semi-artistic person. Can I draw? No. Can I paint? No. Can I take amazing pictures? Very rarely, but mostly not. I can write, sorta. That counts as an art right? Anywho, I like crafts, and make old junk into something cool, pretty, or usable. That makes me crafty I suppose, not so artistic. Whatever. The blog above me though has seriously inspired me. I don’t get that feeling a lot. However when I normally do, I always seem to not do anything at all with that inspiration. It makes me feel good. It gives me ideas but very rarely do I ever put it to work and USE it for something. Typically I say “when I’m older” or “when I’m less busy” or just “that’s a really amazing idea that’s touched me, I wish I could do something like that”. But never, ever, except very rarely, do I ever DOsomething with that inspiration. That is why I’ve been inspired enough by this blog that in the last 8 days of summer I have left, to start something, something cool, something I take pride in and that inspire someone else. I’m going to be doing my own crafts, my own D.I.Y.’s, my own crafty blog. Now, I already have two blogs: this one and another one I won’t mention by name. Both are WordPress blogs mostly because WordPress is pretty simple and basic and I understand how to use it, most of the basic stuff anyway. I thought about venturing out of the WordPress site on this one though just because it’s a hassle to sign in and out of my various accounts. However, I’m convinced that WordPress is the best blogging site, probably because I’ve never used anything different. For that reason, I’m staying with WordPress for my 3 accounts and 3 blogs. It’s probably not smart starting a new blog on a whim. Right before the busiest, and sometimes downright crazy, time of my life starts, but I’m doing it. God, so help me. I’m going to try to post as much as I can. Hopefully a lot more frequently then I have been lately. I’m not going to say I’m going to “try” anything else like making weekly posts to all 3 of the blogs because then I feel like I’m going to make a ton of might be bogus promises to a few random strangers who for some reason read this blog.

This is my writing blog mostly. It’s also my personal blog. HA! Personal. Blog. Posted. Online. For. The. World. To. See. HA! The irony! I couldn’t contain myself for a moment there. Onto more current things, I’m going to be joining NaNo once more but for something I’ve never done with them before… Camp NaNo. Never have I done Camp NaNo. So I’m figuratively taking a stab at it in August.  A new blog, a 50,000 word novel, and a new school. All in a month. If I’m not dead or completely sleep deprived by the end of the month it’ll be a miracle. The novel I plan on writing in August will probably be the exact same as my novel for November for my actual NaNoWriMo novel but rewritten and edited to bits. That’s what I’ll be doing in November and hopefully in December it’ll be ready to be published via CreateSpace.

The two blogs I have now I don’t normally mention each other on the other. Like I don’t advertise -let’s call it Blog #2- Blog #2 on eshysletters and I don’t try to get Blog #2’s followers to follow eshysletters. I just don’t like it. I believe people should follows blogs for the actual blog and they like the content, theme or whatever. Not just because they all have the same author/creator person. So after this I won’t mention the other 2 blogs on here. Even though I didn’t mention their names, or anything specific about them, please shoot me an email or comment if you’d like to know about them and then I’ll give you the links. Not advertising.

It’s been catching you guys up on my blog. I apologize for such a cut and dry post. Really I do. I’m really quite ashamed of myself. I call myself a writer and this is all I can give you, not cool, not acceptable. But it’s all my tired brain can think of at 3am and I thought you needed a post. So I suppose you’ll have to accept it or follow a different blog. Sorry, I really am. I hope you still stay on as a subscriber. I’m not going to promise it’s going to get better, but hopefully my posts will become a little less boring.

-with much love and even more apologies, eshy,
