happy_timesThey say that the best place to start is at the bottom…

2013 was a dismal year for blogging for me. Not that I want to go back over the years to see in what year I posted the least amount of content, but I’m pretty sure that since I started blogging in 2007, last year had to be the worst year on record for me. 13 posts. Wow!

A couple of years ago, I signed up for the daily blogging challenge, and pulled off more than 365 posts that year, without missing a day! That included getting married, and somehow pulling off a post on my wedding day!

Life is busier now for me, without a doubt. Now, I’ve got 4 young boys, and that on it’s own sucks most of my ‘creative’ energy. By the time they are in bed, I am not far behind them! That doesn’t make for much time with my lovely wife. To be honest, it has been a hard year of trying to connect again with the love of my life.

So what better way to start off a new year than to head back to blogging to feel like I can succeed at something! Maybe if I can jump start my brain with some written prose, it will also invigorate my brain enough to have something new and exciting to talk about with my wife. Parenting a bunch of young kids is hard, and the last thing I want is to slowly drift apart from the woman I’ve chosen to share my life with.

2014 will be better. Today’s the start…
