A Million Brilliant Shadows

Archive for the ‘blog’ Category

I disappeared for a while.  I had every intention of posting over the last few weeks, but I just never got around to it.  Since my daughter started daycare, I haven’t really felt like doing much in the way of things that aren’t directly related to her.  My internet usage lately has been limited to after her bedtime, mainly to check email and read a few blogs I just can’t miss. Well, with the exception of today/tonight.  I’ve spent tons of time setting some new things up, which I will get to in a bit.

While I was on my hiatus of sorts, I decided that I need to break A Million Brilliant Shadows up a bit.  I’ve been using it for too many things: a book/reading challenge blog, a writing blog, a personal blog, and a 101 goals project blog.  That just isn’t working for me anymore because there is no central focus.  I’ve decided to start new blogs devoted to one topic.  My writing can now be found at Muse Wanted. Inquire Inside. Book and reading challenge related information can be found at Whitney Reads A Lot.

I’m still working some things out concerning my 101 goals project and my personal blog.  I’m hoping to get details ironed out soon.


I realized within the last few days that I haven’t thought this blog out well enough. I’m going to take the next few days to really think through what my plans are for this blog. I’m also reworking my 101 list yet again to get rid of the goals that I don’t believe will benefit me in the ways I think these goals should.

Edit @ 12:45: I guess I should also say that I’m putting my goals on hold until I figure this all out.

I can’t tell you how many new blogs I’ve started and abandoned in the past year and a half or so. I’d always start a new blog every time I got excited about some project I was starting, thinking that I would actually stay focused on and complete it just because I’d started a blog completely focused on that project. Yeah, that really worked. All those times.

I’m not starting this because of a project. I’m starting this just so I’ll start writing again. I can’t ever seem to find the time to write anything using pen and paper, but I can always take a few minutes to sit down in front of the computer to do anything I need to do.
