Shoemaker’s children…

March 8, 2012

Why is that I always feel like the shoemaker’s children?


I am, of course, referring to the fact that while I build

programs and make recommendations for clients in my other day job,

stressing the importance of social media, and blogging and being

consistent and regular, my little blog falls to the wayside.

My clients get fantastic blog entries and thought-provoking,

dialogue-generating communication and my poor little blog

sits exposed on the internet with last year’s worn out shoes.  Sigh…


My new year’s resolution was to be more consistent.

It really was. And I’ve had a million ideas and started writing

in my head many, many times. But then a call came, or meeting

prep was required, or a writing deadline was looming…and once

again, my child was patted on the head and told, “I’ll be back soon.

No really. I promise.”


Tonight, as I researched and wrote a client’s blog, I could hear

my baby calling for me to come and play. And I felt guilty. And so,

even though I have 3 other deadlines, a growling tummy

(man, I skipped lunch again!) and a need to just stretch and

get away from the desk, I am writing and posting this blog.

And smiling. Because it feels good and reminds me of why

I started this in the first place. I’ll get better. I promise.
