I was without a computer and offline for 12 whole days. That's almost two weeks. I kept up with twitter and instagram, but outside of that - not much. Not much at all.
It took me a really long time, but I'm officially back! I have tons of stuff to catch up on. I've got a couple of blog posts that are behind, so it's going to take a lot of work to get back on track. I'm up for the challenge. I'm ready to tackle it all.
Some news on what's to come real soon:
* I'll be starting my return to the blogosphere with the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop in just less than two hours. I was so bummed to be missing out on the first one of the new year, but I get to catch up this week and see the popular picks from last week, so it's all good.
* I will be announcing a complete Winner's Circle very soon. More than four giveaways ended while I was "temporarily out of service" here on the blog. So, I'd like to try to catch up real quick and announce them all in one shot. Stay tuned for that and see if you're one of the lucky winners!
* A pretty awesome product review that I was working on before my computer crashed will be up by the end of this week. I just have to take new pictures, because the old ones were deleted with my computer clean up.
* Brand NEW giveaways are just waiting to be published, and you're gonna like them!
Don't stop dreaming the dream just because it seems out of reach. You gotta work for what you want. #mythoughts #quote #dream #work #goal— Kim & #shopjustByou (@2justByou) January 13, 2015
Tweeted the above right before I was just about to give up on the big fix.
I thought it was just a dream that I could be able to fix the computer problem on my own.
I'm glad I didn't give up, no matter how frustrating it was.
I know it's going to be challenging trying to catch up with everything (especially since I'm almost two weeks behind schedule with it all). I've got the blog work, the shop work, the taxes, oh my! I hope you'll all have a little patience with me as I get things back to normal.
I really missed blogging. I missed the daily ins and outs of visiting other blogs, surfing the net in general, checking email and other social media. You know, they say that you can do most everything from your mobile phone, but really - it's just not the same. It's not. I couldn't even keep up with email completely, because I would start to get a headache from using the phone too much. I've come to the conclusion that I need to invest in a tablet or laptop as a backup. Some day soon. Maybe. If it's a possibility.
Anyway, I'm just glad to be back. It's pretty funny how soothing the sound of the keyboard can be after you haven't heard it in so long!
Tell me, what have you been up to lately??? How is the start of your new year going?
