Reality Bites

I've been missing you.  But there has been a lot going on in my personal life that has kept me from writing and so before another month goes by, I wanted to let you know the deal.

If you recall a few months ago, I declared that I was going to reclaim my life, and for a solid month, I participated in a reset program designed to help me with that very task.  Well, I trudged my way through until the almost bitter end with the creation of a vision board remaining as the only outstanding project.  My plan was to work on that along with several new ideas for the expansion of this blog, new work opportunities, and most importantly, a new dedication to creating more balance in my personal life.

As the saying goes, life is what happens while you are busy making plans.  In the midst of resetting and envisioning a better life, I have had to deal with some drastic challenges that have literally overtaken my personal life.  Everything has been put on the back burner, especially this blog.

So as I work through this situation, I just wanted to thank everyone for your support this past year, for it was exactly a year ago that I decided to start this blog.  I am not walking away from this project, but I do need to reexamine how I can continue it in light of the circumstances.  I am a perfectionist, and the only way I can make this work is on my terms.  So until I can commit to a regular schedule of posting new articles, I will have depend on other forms of social media to stay connected--I will continue to tweet the important facts about Busy Black Women whenever I get the opportunity, and I will interact with some of you through the Facebook page and/or real life.  Prayerfully, I will return to a regular posting schedule for the blog in January.

Happy Holidays!


  1. Blogging is not easy. I still can't believe how demanding it is and I've restricted myself to one post a week. Your blog is in my google reader so when you post, I see it. Be it once a week or once a month. I guess I've said that to say, your 'regular' might be 'irregular'. But your followers will follow. So I look forward to your return. Whenever that is.

  2. I hope things go well for you and will be eagerly awaiting your posts. Happy Holidays!

  3. Thank you both! And Happy Holidays :)
