End of Hiatus

28 Jan


So it has been a while since I have written anything on here, and I’ve been particularly…sucky, for lack of a better word, about replying to comments/e-mails/facebook messages. For that I truly apologize. I must say however, I have been humbled, and somewhat surprised to see that my blog stats have not taken a significant hit! My readership has been steady at approximately 900 visitors per day, which is a slight decrease from the 1000+ readers I had when I used to post regularly.*

For those of you who care about where I have disappeared, well I’ve spent two weeks in London as I’ve mentioned before, but I also did a mini world tour and visited Qatar and Sudan. To be honest with you, I had the time of my life. Go ahead, be jealous. No really, please take a moment to envy me. Thanks.


Now that I’m back to the United States of Amreeka, I will probably resume regular blogging. But, and this is a big but, I have come to discover that my globetrotting was less of a hindrance to my blogging than the fact that my laptop stopped working shortly before I left to London. I don’t know if this is just a problem unique to me or other bloggers have suffered from such a limiting misfortune, but I can only blog from my laptop. I literally feel paralyzed when I try to type on other computers. I am writing this from a desktop computer at work and I feel that my fingers are resisting transferring my thoughts. Oh well. If I was in Sudan, I would be using my fingers for more important matters, like dipping them into a bowl of Kisra oo Waika.


Okay I have to go pretend to be a productive employee now. I should be purchasing a laptop sometime this week, so let’s plan on all meeting here early next week for new posts, annnnd I have pictures from Sudan as well!
