I’m back! This is not an illusion, nor are you dreaming. I’m back to blogging after being away on hiatus for more than two months. I know most of you guys have been wondering what happened to me and why I haven’t updated this blog in a long time.
What happened? The first few weeks, I was pretty busy and preoccupied with personal stuff. Then, a few weeks after that me and my family went on vacation to visit my in-laws in the East coast and even though I had Internet access there, I wasn’t able to do any updates because I was out most of the time – seeing places, shopping and of course eating out. I was already planning to get right back to blogging as soon as we got back home from our vacation and even had this draft ready. However, I made a mistake of procrastinating and putting blogging aside. Each second, minute, hour and day passed, I found myself slowly losing interest and found myself behind in the latest stuff and news related to my blogging topics, neck deep in emails and comments that needed replying and other stuff. You can say that I lost my blogging groove and had a hard time getting it back. At that point, I was even considering of giving up on the blog.
But thanks to friends like Jan, Elmot, Gem, Aldrin, Deuts and other blogging friends who encouraged me and kept bugging me via email, Twitter or Facebook asking me to get back to blogging, I was inspired to get back, finish this post and start blogging again. I really appreciate what you guys have done and the words of encouragement that you’ve given me. I was especially inspired by Elmot’s post and the comments left by his friends/readers. I also decided to get back to blogging and save myself the embarrassment before Jan started the petition that he threatened me with. Just kidding Jan, but you certainly know how to push the right buttons. Hehe
So now that I’m back, there are lots of stuff to do. As I mentioned earlier, I have lots of catching up to do and a lengthy to-do list like – upgrading my theme, plugins, replying to emails and comments, etc etc. It’s always been my habit/practice to reply to each comment so if you’re left a comment here before I went on “vacation”, expect to receive a reply from me even if its a bit late. Also, to those who’ve sent me messages via the contact form with your questions, I’ll also make sure that I answer each one of them.
Aside from the upgrades and stuff that I’ll be working on, I’ll also be working on implementing the blog mascot for JaypeeOnline. I think a couple of you guys have seen it already. Anyways, I’ve had someone create a blog mascot for me like 3 months ago, before I went into this recent hiatus and it’s been lying around here just waiting for me to use it. So look for it to be up in a few days.
I guess that’s it for now. Just wanted you guys to know that I’m back and thanks for your patience, understanding and continued support. Have a nice day and God bless everyone!
