Bad Blogger Receives Slap on the Wrist

Because of my hectic schedule, I regularly stay up until 2am editing photos and returning email and designing books and other wedding related work. One of my favorite things, though, is when my husband stays up with me and works at the desk next to mine. It's almost like we're normal people with normal jobs... except we're in our pajamas and not working normal hours and nothing about either one of our jobs is normal. And I'm usually eating guacamole. Working next to my Jon means that I usually have a little smile and bright glimmer in my eyes as I toil away in front of my computer with the faint sound of "the Office" playing in the background. and then it happens. Without fail. It's like a knife to the back.

"So, have you blogged recently," he asks smugly, with my blog pulled up on his laptop, full well knowing that I haven't put up a new blog in over a month.

I typically glare at him from my desk across the room and mutter something sarcastic under my breath. When I'm feeling especially creative, I make up excuses like "my fingers are just too cold in this frigid room to type" or "I think the dog ate my keyboard" , or my personal favorite, "so's your mom." I'm quite mature.

In addition to my husband's passive-aggressive attempts to make me blog, I've also been getting quite a few tweets, emails, and facebook comments recently from friends, family and my lovely clients who have noticed my infrequent and sporadic postings.

"Surely, it hasn't been that long since I've blogged," I thought to myself each time I got a message from someone other than my loving husband. But tonight, I checked, and oh the horrors. I haven't blogged a full blog post since July. And it's mid-September. Yes, it's true. That's a long time. sigh...

So, tonight I have resolved to turn over a new blogging leaf. My lack of posting definitely has not been from lack of material because I've shot more weddings and sessions this year than I ever have... and that's what I really blame for my blogging absence. I actually really enjoy writing, though, and I'd really love to blog more often. So I'm gonna. As Zac Effron said in High School Musical 2, you can bet on me.

Yeah, I'm really not doing anything tonight to hide what a dork I am.

So check back soon... I've got sessions from all the way back to spring that I still haven't blogged and I'm so excited to share with you. And since blogs are always better with photos, here's a shot from tonight's engagement shoot :).
