A to Z meme. This week's letter is "Z."my first post if you don't believe me!), and I have been doing it pretty faithfully ever since. I have accumulated over a thousand posts on my blog - believe it or not, that's an average of a post every two days since I started!
And I realized something last week. While I really do enjoy blogging much of the time, I've been treating it as my "job." I'll get my post done before I do other things I need to do. I'll feel guilty if I have to skip one of my "regular" posts. And I've been doing it - almost every time - before I get serious writing done.
I'll still be writing some posts - and you can see them at three other sites I write for (I have a "standing appointment" at the Midwest blog the Barn Door on the 9th of each month, a couple posts a month at the devotional blog Jewels of Encouragement on the 10th and 22nd of the month, and one devotional a month at the Internet Cafe - different date each month). I'll put up short "teaser" posts here to remind you to go check them out. But, as far as this blog, that's all I'm committing to.
Cuz, you see, my blog deserves a nap. And I need to change my focus. My blog is no longer my job.
So, what is my job, you ask? Well, as far as writing and/or income, I have three of them.
- FaithWriters (I'm the blogger over there, plus I'm a moderator on the forums, and do some critiques in the critique circle)
- Learning as much as I can about writing picture books, and WRITING them (the only one I'm

(Oh, and be sure to follow/like, etc., me on Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest, etc - whatever floats your boat. Links are at the top on my sidebar. I'm not disappearing.)
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
