Surprise! I'm back.

Thursday, January 5, 2017

It's been almost a year to the date since I published my last post on Cleveland's a Plum.

Shall we blame 2016 for my absence? Sure. Let's simply pretend that the election year was so traumatic I couldn't muster up the energy to write. 

Truthfully? Blogging just wasn't a priority. Social media has changed so much since I started this little slice of the internet in 2008, and I found myself experimenting with more real-time platforms like Snapchat and Instagram Stories.

But you know what? I miss blogging, so I'm going to put my $10 annual domain name renewal fee to good use and write for me.

It's factual that as my day job writing responsibilities increased, my bandwidth for personal writing decreased. And while I've never been comfortable saying, "I'm a writer," it sure does make me happy.

So here we are, nine years, 1,139 posts and a year-long sabbatical from blogging later and I'm back!

And the good news is.... Cleveland is still a Plum, except that now I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a blog design to update and personal goals to set.

Happy Thursday, kids.
