In case you haven't been following along over there, this past week was my first week of blogging daily (M-F) at Faith & Family Live.
I am really loving my F&F gig. When Danielle first contacted me about it, I was thrilled because I have a long-term goal of writing for something other than self-publishment, and this was a step in that direction. Plus, it's a totally great project to be a part of! I did, however, sort of see it as a moment of truth: this could have been where I learn that I have no ability to write for anyone other than myself, that the stress is too much for me and the only kind of writing I'm actually cut out for is personal blogging and journaling.
Fortunately, it did not turn out that way, and blogging at Faith & Family Live! is incredibly rewarding and fun. Unfortunately, for this site at least, it also takes a significant amount of writing time... and I have not yet gotten good at managing my writing time to make time for this blog as well.
This is, of course, in addition to the widely-recognized fact that I have not been that great at keeping up this site since Camilla came along. One post a week is the best I do most of the time, and that is when I'm on the ball.
However, the blogging gods will get Arwen/Elizabeth from me when they rip it from my cold, dead hands. This site is important to me, seldom-updated though it may be. I like knowing that I have a space on the web where I can write and get feedback on the things that are personal to me.
And you know, they say that the way to get yourself to write more... is to write more. If that's true, then blogging at F&F - which is stretching my idea muscles and my writing muscles in all kinds of good ways - should ultimately help me with the upkeep of this site. Once I get into the groove of posting five times weekly there, I hope to be here more too. I'll try to start sooner rather than later.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
