Once upon a time I used to blog so much more often, and I loved it! Sometimes I get busy doing about 5 million things. Lately its the biggest, most special project I've done to date because it's the most important globally. Vague? Well I'll get to that in a minute but if I'm still here (and clearly I am) where have all the blog posts been? Here's a bit of honesty.
Blogging, for me, is a guilty pleasure. There are simple and complex reasonings behind it. I find I don't dedicate the time to blog for the simple reason that I feel guilty. I mean aren't I supposed to be *working*?! Blogging isn't working, is it? I already get inundated with questions from friends, to family to aquaintances and strangers alike about what I do all day, working from home and running my own business. "How does that work?", "Do you make a lot of money?" "Wow must be nice to be at home all the time!", "Must be nice to not have to go to work!" are just a few of the things I'm asked and told. So yeah, when my day yesterday was 19 hours long yesterday and I got 5 hours sleep lastnight and it will be no different tonight I withdraw a bit rather than get defensive or I just avoid conversation completely and hunker down for the hard work I've got to do.
On the complex side of things blogging was so much more for me in the past. At one time blogging used to be a great emotional release, an opportunity to share and express myself through the creativity of language. I'd like to think I'm excellent at the art of language but the stresses and hurts of daily life aren't supposed to show up in a blog that is meant for business are they? Does it steer away the clientel if you share too much of the good/bad in your life through language on a page that is supposed to promote you as a business when that might not be the most eager and positive thing you feel like sharing that day? The problem for a creative and expressive person like myself is who I am is everything about my business.My latest project is a testament to that and where I've finally chosen to use my art of language for today. And hopefully this means I can begin to let go of the idea of *not sharing*.
So getting to it... where does the time go? Thankfully it goes to the biggest upside a girl could ask for.... I've been working with and for my best friends on the planet (as well as my super, amazing, talented, brilliant daughter yet again)! What are we doing, you ask? I hope you are asking with bated breath because I'm on pins and needles knowing that when I showed my best friends their little teaser lastnight they went to bed giddy and excited about the possibilities. You see, my friend Daren just so happens to be brilliant. Daren is a scientist and a musician but putting the music on the back burner for a while now he's been focusing on an invention of a lifetime. His partner in life, Lisa: also happens to be brilliant. They've spent years working on developing this amazing invention that can actually help in the treatement of cancer! Sounds amazing for sure but they ran into one snag... keeping their invention with the smaller investors (that would be the little guy like you or me or the guy in Walmart) instead of selling out to large corporations (that would be the guy that owns all the Walmarts). This is where YOU come in! YES YOU! No... we're not asking for your money. But if you have it and are willing to share it we wouldn't dream of saying no. ;) What we are simply asking for is this.... SHARE the heck out of the final video when it is released because every single little bit of help can go miles and miles in helping us to reach our goal!!! Check out our teaser, keep your eyes peeled for the final product and remember.... please SHARE!!!!
