Blogging - What's it all about?

My blogging journey began in August of 2009. My purpose was to chart my way as a writer, from aspiring to publishing. As I moved through this journey, I’ve shared disappointments and accomplishments, reached out with writing advice, interviewed wonderful writers and reviewed their works, and have made it to publication.

But above all, I’ve met people I would not have otherwise. It’s been an amazing journey, and continues forward. I’m grateful and excited to have you all share this life and my journey with me.

found this on a few blogs, not sure who to give credit, for now - Ghost Stories and Haunted Places

As we move from day to day, our steps take us in many directions. I’m finding myself at a point of decision. Overwhelmed by my day job, I find it hard to get in my writing and keep up with all of my external duties. Over the years, I’ve whittled my blogging down a little at a time, from daily to weekly. A new change is upon us, as I carve a slice from around the edges once more.

As most of you know, I also run a tarot blog – Tarot Guidance, and a monthly article as the National Tarot Examiner. This part of my journey is just as important to me as my career as a fiction author. It pains me to pull away from any of my endeavors, but there are only so many hours in the day and so much energy to give.

Therefore, I’m cutting the Footsteps of a Writer postings down to twice a month. You will not see much of a change here for a while, for the Voices of Fiction series will continue on Tuesdays, for a few more months. Announcements of publications and such will continue to be posted as they come about.

For those of you who follow Tarot Guidance, it will also be cut back to twice a month. There will be many changes in this area, as I move forward. Many ideas for furthering my tarot journey sprout daily, including tarot-based fiction. So, some of this cutting back is not only to allow for more writing time, but also to allow my creativity more room to grow.

As I move into a new phase of this great journey of life, I thank you, my followers, friends, readers, and supporters, for sticking with me over the years and continuing to stand at my side.

Opportunities appear daily, but only the few paying attention will grab them. Have the time and courage to reach out and claim yours.

You're correct. There is only so much time in each day and a prioritized list to accomplish each day--or it gets bumpted to the already full next day.

Glad you're not fully closing up shop here. :)
