Work has been super busy of late so my blogging has taken a back seat. I haven’t been happy with that as blogging is where my writing ‘career’ took off four years ago. In one sense, that seems like a lifetime ago, but in other ways it feels like only yesterday. Some of you have been there since day one, others are recent followers. Whoever you are and wherever you’re from, all are welcome at FracturedFaithBlog. If only I was here more often myself.
I thought it best I introduce myself again. My name is Stephen Black and I’m married to Fionnuala. We have three ‘hatchlings’ as I like to call them: Adam (19), Hannah (17), and Rebecca (14). Oh, and not forgetting Charlie the border terrier. We live in a little village about 20 miles outside Belfast, Northern Ireland. I work in Belfast and have recently taken up a new position in my organisation. Which involves lots of pressure and long hours. And less blogging.
There’s no consistent theme to my blogging. I tend to write about what’s on my mind at any given time. I also try to keep my posts short and snappy. I find long blog posts are a struggle for many. So I try to make my point and move on. I also always try to reply to anyone who is kind enough to comment on one of my posts. It might take a day but I will get back to you. Honest. Communication is a two-way street, after all.
But that’s enough about me. Many of you will know this already but I thought a new blogging momentum called for a re-introduction. I’ll try to blog regularly from now on, so please feel free to leave a comment and let’s get talking. I’m hoping my fifth year on WordPress will be a lot more active than the previous one. Some say blogging is a dying art but I’m determined to stay true to my roots and keep the dream alive.
