Is anyone working here anymore!?

January 27, 2011

Ok, so I’ve been a REALLY bad blogger. I noticed I’ve addressed the topic of me being a bad blogger in some of my last posts and obviously I haven’t done any better.

I don’t really even have a good excuse. Sure, like any parent and full-time employee, I don’t always have a ton of time. But I think I have enough time to write a little bit every week or so at the least.

I think part of my problem is trying to figure out what exactly the scope of this blog should be. There are plenty of other places on the internet that break all the latest news about autism, so I probably don’t need to do that. I want to be able to share stories about how our son and our family is doing. I sometimes worry though about getting too personal…or maybe not personal enough. My greatest fear is always that someday in the future my son will read this blog and think, “Did I make your life really hard?”

That would really depress me because he has been the single biggest blessing in my life. Sure there are times when autism can be a struggle, but my son is so much more than autism. He is such a loving and sweet child and I wouldn’t trade a minute with him. I would never want him to think he makes my life harder, because that simply isn’t true. He has enriched my life so much and I learn something new from him everyday.

So all that to say…I suppose it would be a good idea for me to at least set some attainable goals with this blog. Perhaps write one entry a week at the least? Sometimes it will have to do with autism or what we’re up to. Maybe sometimes it will just be me riffing on topics I find interesting…sports, music, food, etc. Who knows?

Anyway, not sure if anyone still even visits this site, but instead of just promising some fresh content, I suppose I should actually just write something!
