Those of you who follow this blog will likely notice that it’s been some time since I posted new content. In the past, I’ve referenced the phenomenon of blogger’s guilt that I experience when my contributions lapse. I’ll always wrestle with this, but I had somewhat of a revelation I wanted to share with you.
Towards the end of 2011, I noticed that one of my contacts on Twitter, Andy Donovan, had posted a link to my last blog post, entitled Liquid Gold. I replied to Andy and expressed my gratitude for his kindness, and mentioned, somewhat apologetically, that it had been some time since I posted fresh content.
His response was salient and concise. He wrote that blogs are a creative medium, like any other, and creativity will always ebb and flow.
I started this blog for many reasons – to explore a blogging platform to educate myself for my career in digital strategy, to share my passion for food and health, and to meet others with similar interests and passions.
What I never expected was that anyone (beyond my friends and family) would necessarily read my writing, let alone derive any value from my musings. Ultimately, I discovered how wonderful it is to put thoughts and ideas into the universe that resonate with other people. The best part of having a blog is hearing back from YOU, the readers so I want to express my sincere gratitude to you for following Sift, Dust & Toss over the past three years and look forward to many more of those lovely interactions in the months and years to come.
Happy 2012, everyone! It's going to be a great one.
