Recently I started responding to the daily “word prompts” provided to those of us that maintain a blog site on Word Press. However, I only write an article if I have something to say and that the daily “word” can be incorporated within the post.
It just so happens that the word for today is “apology” and while I try my best to maintain a lifestyle that does not find me in embarrassing situations where I have to apologize for something, I am human, and well right or wrong, feel that I am currently in such a situation.
The apology is to those individuals on Retirement-online.com that follow my crazy shenanigans. I have allowed my computer problems and my traveling to act as an excuse to not write on a daily basis. Not too long ago, I promised myself (and thus those following my crazy rants and raves) that not only would I continue to write and provide both informational and wild and funny useless information, I would do so on a weekly basis.
Looking back over my stats, and using the word prompts as my muse, I see that I did provide nine posts in June and eleven posts in July on this blog site but the stats for my retirement-online site only reflect 4 posts in June and 1 post in July. To me that is unsatisfactory.
Part of my problem is and you all may find this rather hard to believe but I do consider myself to be an introvert. Add to that fact that I usually have a hard time determining what my readers might find informative and worth their time to read. The useless and funny stuff, well, that is not as much of a problem because in today’s crazy mixed up world, hopefully, anything that is funny and tends to make us laugh is probably a welcome piece of prose. The informational posts though present a different type of challenge.
So, to those of you that have wondered where I have been, well, let me just say that “life” which it has the habit of doing, somewhat got in the way and I got side-tracked. I am attempting to master a 2 in 1 type device which in and of itself is a challenge!
So, while I am not able to knock out the posts as fast as I did on my Toshiba, I do intend to master this little contraption and as a result, begin writing once again on a more reliable schedule. Again I hope you will accept my apology and allow me to once again share with you what I consider information that may help all of us during our retirement years and also razzle you with my wild and crazy pieces of useless information.
