The Hiatus is Over (Yay!)
It’s brings me much joy, but also much guilt, that so many have expressed exasperation with my very long hiatus from this blog. The good news, for those that care: it is over. I am back. Things have finally settled down from personal and holiday obligations that I’ve had time to re-focus my energies. A lot of things are happening all at once for me, right now, but one of the things I am certain I wish to continue pursuing is the blog. And, for all of you who follow me, enjoy what I have to say, or even just like to debate what I have to say, I am very grateful.
Many of you know that I have not, in fact, fallen off the face of the earth, and have actually been blogging a ton! It’s just that it’s been micro-blogging on Twitter, which has for a while been easier for me to squeeze into my schedule. I am still on Twitter and you are welcome to follow me there as @SandiBehrns. (If you shoot me a tweet mentioning the blog, I will be sure to follow back.)
When I first started this blog, I was uncertain about a focus, and fretted about that. My topics have ranged from parenting to politics, with a heavy dose of social commentary thrown in. I have been hemming & hawing about how to better focus, and thus “brand” the blog. Finally, I had an epiphany: it’s The Cassandra Files. I am the brand.What I have been blogging is me, and so I don’t believe a change is really needed. However, as my other projects comprise and consume more of me, it is inevitable that this will dovetail into a heavier political tilt on this blog. You’ve been fore-warned. 😉
Again, thank you so much for the words of encouragement (and ass-kicking) to get me back to work.
Love you all tons!
