I’m sitting in my bed, sipping on what feels like my 80th cup of ginger tea today, hoping that when I wake tomorrow, I will not only have my voice back, but also would have recovered a little from the weirdest,most sudden strain of strep throat (or something like it) I’ve ever heard of. I’ve been weak all day, with a fluctuating fever, so I’ve been forced to lounge for most of the day in bed, watching Scandal on Netflix. Oh,the horror (seriously, if only being sick felt better, we could all actually enjoy our sick time!). In between water refills and Ricola munches and crunches, a thought occurred to me: I’m officially the worst blogger ever. I’m sorry. 🙁
I have been busy lately working on articles and features for Beauty Bylaws, though, and an exciting new project that I’ve been working on that I can hardly wait to debut next week.
I’ve even decided to do #Blogmas this year! Well, wait, before you get too excited, I’ve decided to Blogmas this year, indeed, but in my own way. You see, all the folks of YouTube have Vlogmas, which is when they video record snippets of their lives throughout December and edit and upload those videos onto YouTube on a daily basis, prominent bloggers have Blogmas, which is the same thing as Vlogmas but instead of a video per day in December, it’s a blog post per day (and usually holiday-related), and…then there’s me. I want to commit to doing Blogmas in the traditional sense, I really do, but anyone who knows me and/or this blog knows that I’m not like your average blogger. I get swept away in my ideas and commit hardcore to taking the time and paying attention to every detail in order to produce the best quality and (hopefully) fun articles to read and then within a short period of time, be it a few days, weeks or even months, I get burnt out. And then I feel guilty, which makes me even more hesitant and reluctant at times to step back up to the plate, so to speak.
So, instead of making grand promises, I’m going to do you one better: I hereby commit to non-commitment. Yes, I will be doing #Blogmas, and it will be great. Nay, it will be fantastic. It will be raw, different and dare-I-say cutting edge, but I have and will continue to pour my heart and soul into creating the best content I can for you (as always). I hope that it will bring on a whole new, exciting chapter and hopefully, form a new pattern for the #BeautyBylaws website. But for now, that’s all I can share, and it’s certainly all I can say with my Ariel-esque, post-Ursula promise lack of a voice (can you tell I’m annoyed by it!? As someone who talks a lot, communicating by paper and pen because it physically hurts to speak is NO FUN!).
However, know this: the return is coming. And it’s going to be damn good.
Ta ta for now,
