Well, after several months of radio silence (although I am still blogging semi-regularly over at my Writing Project 365), I have been inspired to start writing again here. This came about because a random reader (whom I have never met in person) sent me a very nice email asking for some advice on getting to the field (aka fundraising), and mentioned how helpful she had found this blog and our newsletters as she and her family make their preparations.
My first thought when I read her email was, Huh, I didn't know anyone was still reading.
And then I felt guilty for not updating in so long, you know for those 4 people out there who still check in on this blog from time to time (you know who you are).
But her email did give me the incentive I needed to take action with what I am calling a "blog reboot." At first, it will look a lot like catching up -- I'm thinking a post for each of the past 5 months, just so you have an idea of some of what's been going on around here. And after that... I don't know, I'm still mulling over it, honestly. But I've been gathering some ideas and thinking of how I can take things in a bit of a different direction with The Campbell Chronicles. One thing I know for sure -- I want to be a lot more regular with my posting. I don't want to get overly ambitious at the outset of my blog reboot and set myself up for failure, so I'm thinking that going back to the goal of once-a-week posts is a good place to start.
So if you're still here, still reading, still following -- thank you. I'll try to be a better blogger going forward!
