You may have noticed the blog’s been dark for a couple of weeks. I could hem & haw and give you excuses, but hey, isn’t a picture worth a thousand words?
Sure, he looks all sweet & innocent there, but once dark comes, he transforms into a squealing, non-sleeping, gum-gnashing little monster. I think we’ve actually turned the corner on the 4-month sleep regression, but during July’s full moon, when Pip was squealing at 2 or 3 a.m. (after having been up at midnight, 1 a.m. and again at 5 a.m.), I was pretty convinced he was actually a baby werewolf with alopecia.
So, if the blog is ever dark when it shouldn’t be, you can blame that guy up there most likely. The thing is, my priorities go like this:
- Health, safety & well-being of Pip, T, myself, & our menagerie of animals.
- Freelance clients.
- Regular updates to this here blog.
That leaves out a LOT of other priorities, but you get the picture. So, even though you should update your blog regularly and consistently, sometimes life is going to prevent that — and that’s OK. And that goes for most facets of your business. Sometimes an order gets messed up, or a customer service experience is less than stellar. The important thing to do is to own up (or blame a baby who may or may not be a werewolf) and do what you can to make it right. (Here are some tips on what to do when you mess up.)
So, in the spirit of honesty, please bear with me as I learn to work in proper updates here along with balancing my need for sleep with my werewolf-baby’s need to squeal and/or eat.
