The Day My Blog Died

 

It's embarrassing. It's frustrating. And it's just downright sad. It's been so long since I wrote a blog post that I... I... I forgot my login ID and password! The horror.

My Blog Died

This year has been a whopper. Dirty words like chemo, death and divorce took the place of beautiful things like date night, weddings and baby showers. Like a miracle, now that I feel like I have a firm grasp on personal situations, the professional engine just flipped the switch not just to on but to overdrive. And sort-of did so in the "off season." Amused and grateful! How amazing that when I need a little break, I get it, and when I need the business(es) to come back to life, they do? And immediately following... I remember it! My blog login ID and password!

Sometime this year my blog died. Fortunately as broker of record for 4 different Texas real estate firms, the rest of the team(s) did extremely well. Although the broker's blog died, the brokerage flourished. I'm certain it's one of those ironies of life -- I neglect my favorite professional thing due to personal needs and the whole business does better than ever. Because we all know we can't really live without our blogs ;)
