In November, I had my next bright idea: I’ll have a blog! After all, it was free, I like to write, and I think I have useful tips for others. I’d see all the mommy blogs where housewives give parenting tips, the lifestyle blogs where young millennials with no children tell us how to be cool, and the foodie blogs where people who only have to worry about feeding themselves tell us the best places to overspend on meals our children won’t consider touching. Here’s the thing though: I am far from a housewife, volleyball mom tees are my version of cool, and my children love various versions of chicken and rice, so those blogs didn’t fit my lifestyle.
In comes Asha to talk about sensible, real-life stuff from a personal and professional standpoint…as soon as she can get a chance to actually write…whenever the computer isn’t being used to grade papers, help with homework, pay bills, respond to emails, write proposals, read dissertations, conduct supervision, coordinate class parties (as the 3rd grade room parent), goof off on social media, attend virtual meetings, conduct webinars, do some online shopping, and whatever else we use this thing for. Then she’ll write…whenever she's not taxiing children, conducting site visits, doing presentations, working out, etc.
With that, I add blogging to my list of bright ideas that weren’t necessarily so bright. It joins the ranks of other failed hobbies like gardening, archery, baking, and crafting. That doesn’t mean that I won’t randomly feel the need to write and share with you all; it just means I won’t do it consistently.
