Getting back to it...

There were four of us at first. We took the leap into blogging. Friends for years, I was separated from them by geography, and I loved the fact that I could keep up with what was going on with them through their blogs. Later on, others joined us and my circle of personal blogging friends grew while I made new blogging friends too.

And, then, a few months ago, whether it was coincidental or not, we all sort of slowed down with it. Some stopped entirely this summer. I filled my blog posts with more fluffy things and reviews instead of the deep stuff. And, I started to lose touch with these friends of mine that I've known most of my adult life. Our lives all taking us in other places, I sadly hoped that we would somehow stay in touch...but worried that we might not.

Then, not long after, I took a trip and saw one of them who had moved even further away than I had. And, I learned that time and distance doesn't change real friendship, as I saw my friend for the first time in more than a year and it felt like I'd just seen her yesterday. Our conversations were non-stop until the wee hours of the mornings that I was there and then abruptly ended when I got on the plane to leave. She even commented at how weird it felt to just say goodbye and put me on a plane.

And, then I came home to one of these friends sending out a virtual kick in the pants to all of us to get off of our duffs and start blogging again already. And, while I've already flunked his daily challenge, I am making the effort to answer his call for a rebirth of our blog activity. I'm here! I'm trying! And, most of all, I'm glad you all are back!

P.S. To continue my public display of being desperately and embarrassingly unhip and terribly behind on current music, I'd like to also share that I think I am now in love with Pink completely. I have always loved her f-off attitude. And, her latest CD is sooo amazing...I can't wait to hit the treadmill tomorrow with it on my IPod. Before you say it, I know that I am musically behind by almost a year. I'm slow. But, at least I'm enthusiastic. So, throw me a bone, okeydokey?

Oh I'm so glad you're back! I don't know you in real life, but I consider you a friend.

It's very easy to let the blogging fall by the wayside, but it's great that you've got a support system that keeps you motivated! Glad to have you "back" and I totally agree about Pink--she's all over my running track list ;)
