Have you seen the Holiday Concert hosted by Neilochka? There are a ton of amazing contributions from bloggers all over the world, and I’m happy to be amongst them.
Obviously, you can see mine over there, but I’m also sharing it here, too:
This is my first Christmas since the divorce. I started out feeling grinchy but have since gotten into the Christmas spirit, buying and decorating a real tree, hanging lights, and even occasionally playing a Christmas song. The one thing I’m not doing this year is getting presents for anyone. Except myself. The gift I’m going to give myself this year is permission to take two weeks off of blogging.
I’m not quite as committed a blogger as some people. While I have blogged every single day for the better part of the almost seven years I’ve been blogging, I do take the occasional break, and I think this holiday is a good time for me to do that. I’ll probably pop up with a Christmas post, I’m sure, but I’m going to free myself from the self-imposed obligation to post every day, at least until 2011 starts.
Merry Christmas, me.
