THE TRUTH ABOUT TODAY'S BLOG POST FOR NABLOPOMO

T
o be honest, I have been writing all morning but not for my blog. There have been some other pressing matters.  Finding that perfect bloggy balance feels elusive at times.

I swear I feel like if I don't blog first thing in the morning, things just won't come together in time to publish before noon.  Waiting until the evening is always a battle of blogging vs. heavy eyelids.  At the end of the of day and sometimes night, I have consistently hit that publish button.  That deserves some hand claps.

Blogging tools: journal, candle and endless cups of tea :)  Disclaimer:  The above image has been used in a previous blog post.  
I have also been quite distracted with the current state of affairs in America.  As I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline, I came across a graphic of the U.S. highlighting the 37 states that had protests immediately after the grand jury in Ferguson decided not to indict Michael Brown's killer.  Wow, 37 out of 50 states is pretty impressive.  Did you see what's going on in D.C.??!  Howard University raised the Pan-African flag instead of the American flag yesterday.  The image of that red, black and green flag was a sight to behold.  My question is what are the other states doing??  Why are they choosing to be so basic??

Even Seattle held it down yesterday with marches and rallies.  What I totally was inspired by was the fact that many of our youth came out in droves to be seen and be heard.  I am proud of them.  

It's not like I haven't been writing anything or designing content for an online audience.  I have been doing just that only not for my blog.  I was working on the African American Leadership Forum (AALF) Newsletter the entire morning.  It is scheduled to send at exactly 10:51am PST.  It looks good I must admit thanks to some good ol' fashioned team work.

Assembling a team to create content for the blog wouldn't be a bad idea.  I have yet to guest blog or invite others to guest blog here.  That is definitely a plan for the future.  Right now, I am just focusing on getting through these next few days.  There is always a challenge towards the end, right?  Perhaps, if I plan out my content for these last few days I can avoid any hiccups.  

The truth about today's blog post for NaBloPoMo, is that there have been distractions, finding balance is an ongoing pursuit, and sleepy eyes prove to be a worthy opponent most nights BUT consistency in hitting that publish button has been the key to this 30 day blogging challenge.

Just publish something already!  Sheesh.
