You know you have a neglected blog when you are inundated with offers for content ‘support’ from various corners.
Did it stick? Not really… partly as my travels significantly reduced and the work situation became complicated. Even on the play front, I would attend so many amazing events but these did not translate into posts…
My Sunday Snaps series attempt to revive regularity also lost steam…
I was clearly in trouble when I skipped my usual quarterly round-ups of highlights and lowlights – including celebrating EverydayAsia’s 3rd anniversary.
Yeah… time for another intervention. Big time.
Then a friend came along and asked me to write something for him.
After a few days distraction, I sat down… and the words poured out.

The personal connect to a given topic.
And here you have it folks. The underlying reason for radio silence – good old writers block!

It doesn’t mean there haven’t been some tough moments in the last few months. It also is quite true there were an awful lot of other priorities. Many of the distractions will remain over the next few months.
But finally it feels like I’m back, not just physically home!
