Oh goodness gracious, it has been a while since I have posted. Somehow the month of October has just passed me by with such fervor that I feel like I haven’t had a chance to even breathe. But that is just an excuse, and a lame one at that.
So what has kept me away from my dear ol’ blog? A crazy adventure in the South Pacific? An opportunity to play guitar with members of my favorite band? A vicious attack by bears? No. Unfortunately the things that have been keeping me away are super banal that I almost feel embarrassed sharing them with you.
Regardless, here are the 3 things that I allowed to keep me away from my blog.
1. Work Conferences
Yay Work Conferences! They’re a great opportunity to get out of the office and learn something new to share with the rest of your colleagues. They’re also a great way to get behind on your emails, especially when your hotel’s wifi is practically non-existent.
2. Exercise and Fitbiting
FITBITING (verb) – The act of obsessively counting your steps so that you can out walk your Mother, who is retired, who doesn’t work at a desk all day.
Right not I have a draft post ready in the wings about how I suddenly realized I put on some weight when I could no longer zip up one of my favorite dresses. That (super traumatic) event inspired me to lace up my running shoes, clip on my Fitbit, and get out and get some exercise. I was also inspired by my mother after she lost almost 15 pounds in two months by walking 6+ miles a day.
3. Real Estate Investing Education
Since I declared RE Investing as my Something Big, I have been relentless in reading and learning as much as I possibly can. I went to one of my first seminars and I was able to meet with an investment company. It was a great chance for me to speak with someone one-on-one to understand their experience and get some advice.
So there it is folks, the (lame) reasons why I haven’t written. I promise to not let things go this long in the future. I’m still growing this blog and sometimes I feel like a gardner with a packet of seeds and no clue how to plant them. I’m a big fan of learning by doing, so any advice you may want to shoot my way would be greatly appreciated.
