And now, for a little word from our sponsor.
Right now I’m in the midst of something incredibly exhausting. It’s not something I canshouldwant to talk about, so I won’t. But it’s not because I’m trying to be all stupid cryptic. I’m just a super private person, especially about things like this.
The thing is, until I know how this is going to turn out, I’d just as soon keep mum. I don’t like to feel vulnerable, you know? And talking about things like this, well…I don’t like to tell stories until they have endings either (one of the reasons I don’t have alphas).
Yeah, feeling vulnerable already. But I said it in size 8 font so it doesn’t seem like whining.
Unfortunately, this whole crypticosis requires a lot of time from me, which means less time to hang online. And while I miss it, I’m also fully invested in my crypticosis. So, I’m asking you to be patient with me.
I know you’re not hanging on my every word, dying for me to post/tweet/update, but I don’t want you to think I’m a total blog wiener, treating my bloggie/online friends like they don’t matter either. I treasure every one of you who stops by, whether it’s as followers or just to check things out. It still amazes me that anyone is interested in anything I have to say. My StatCounter blows me away nearly every time I check it. I’m always like, whoa…that person is returning for their ___th visit??? (Special shoutout to my friends in India and Australia—I seem to have a number of you.) And, okay, I’ll just be honest…when I see visitors from NYC, it makes me double back to make sure I didn’t come off sounding like a complete moron in my last few posts.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I do care about you. I will be back to blogging and visiting blogs and making a general nuisance of myself online in no time at all. But until then, please understand that my crypticosis is necessary and good, but a bit all-consuming. If all goes well, it will be amazing. If not, well, it is what it is. But until I’m through with it, my posts might be a bit scattered. I’m planning some cool posts/vlogs/giveaways for the near future, so don’t give up on me, k?
Man, I sound like a turkey. I’m totally begging, aren’t I?
I heart you.
