What I am going to tell you is that today will be my last post for a week or so. I am leaving for a 3 day fun-filled girls scrapbooking retreat and will not be posting because I’ll be busy being creative, drinking Skinny Girl Margaritas (no wine, I promise) and laughing so hard I may pee my pants. Oh, and trying to cope with all the food and liquor that flows at this thing and being really, really strong and not eat or drink any of it. (Note: There is this one chick who works for a liquor company and she sets up a bar in the corner of the room for all to share. Pray for me).
I have packed my bag with carrots, low fat pretzel sticks, hummus and clementines if I feel the need to nosh on something. I also have packed sneakers and workout clothes to actually use the gym they have at the hotel. This is my 3rd year doing this and I’ve always walked by the gym, laughed and said, “yeah, right.” Well, this year I will be the one being laughed at. (Sorry roomies, it’s true. Suck it up.)
So getting back to why I am taking a week’s break. I can hear you say, “but you are only leaving for 3 days.” Well, just so you know, when you have a blog, you get really annoying spam. But one certain piece of spam was actually really helpful and talked about SEO and keyword rich content, blah, blah, blah. I used to be part owner of an online scrapbooking store. I pretty much created the entire website so I should know better. I know about SEO and keywords.
So, I am taking this opportunity to make my site better. For me. For you. For everyone. I would like more people to see me and I know what I need to do to achieve that goal. The problem I have right now is that I am constantly thinking of things to write about. And I am forever jotting notes, talking into my recorder or typing on my laptop. Real honest-to-God writers must go absolutely mad. I never get the time to do any real constructive work on my site. Or clean my house. But that’s another story. In a nutshell, I’m really bad at managing my time.
I know you didn’t really need to hear all this boring crap, but to make a long story short (or is it too late?) I’m taking a break to better my writing skills, be funnier and make my blog more appealing and searchable. Make sense?
I’ll miss you. Try not to miss me too much. I’ll be back. Thank you for your patience while we are under construction. Have a nice week.Mo
