I’m not sure if anyone has wondered this about my blog as we’ve moved through the second half of 2016, but I sure have. It’s been about six months since I’ve done any blogging and I’ve had to wrestle through a lot of questions. Questions like:

Do I have the capacity to keep up with this blog in my new role?
Have I let too much time go by and lost the interest of my readers and subscribers?
Do I still have the passion and drive to sustain this blog?

Truth be told, I wasn’t planning on taking a six-month break. As transitions go, moving to Milwaukee hasn’t been overly challenging or difficult, it’s actually gone really well, but it has been all consuming. And for a while I really wrestled with whether or not to keep up with my blog.

In the end, writing and blogging has become something that I dearly love and can’t foresee letting it go. Therefore, one of my hopes for the new year is to continue to write, post, and discuss with readers.

I still have a lot to work out, things like frequency, focus, rhythms, etc… But I’m eager to get back at it. Be looking for more from me in 2017.

I hope that as your year comes to an end, you are experiencing joy and peace this Christmas season.

Grace & Peace,

    Ironically, I checked your blog this very morning the 22nd of Dec. to see if anything new had been posted, but it must have been before you posted this entry. So yes, I’m still waiting for new content!

    Honestly, just last night as I passed by a photo of Kate and Emma, the thought crossed my mind, “It’s been a while since Bryan blogged.” I hope you’ll continue to blog – because as you guys have already seen I am the worst at keeping up via regular phone calls, regular mail, email or even texting. I miss you all so, and I have always enjoyed reading your blog. Happy almost New Year Bryan!
