Only I did look back because I missed it awful. For me writing has always been about as important as food and water. I'm fond of saying it's my therapy.
I stopped blogging for many reasons, not the least of which was having my columns stolen again and again by women who honestly had the audacity to simply change a few words and pass them off as their own. That makes me hot - and not in a good way. Because what I write is my life essentially, it always feels as though these people are stealing some of what makes me who I am.
(Let's all take a moment to put a voodoo curse on each and every one of them.)
Another reason I gave up blogging was because turning out humor exclusively didn't feel real to me.
I am essentially a humor writer. That's a fact. I like to laugh and I see the funny in most situations. I like people who can make me laugh and I like the feeling writing something funny gives me. It's a purely selfish endeavor.
But that's not all of who I am and I'm to the point now in this fresh and sassy 2009 (which I personally have declared the year of the female bloggers) where I want to be whatever I want to be, whenever I want to be. And that, my darlings, will include this blog. Sometimes you'll think I'm funny and other times, you'll think I'm drunk.
That's OK with me. Especially since I am typically one or the other - and sometimes both.
