Tag Archives: I’m Sorry

With Apologies, etc.

Hi friends! So … you might’ve noticed lately I’ve been not as great with posting things. I don’t even know for how long, but for a while now we’ve had the lovely and wonderful Sadie helping out with formatting and scheduling, which has been wonderful. (Side note, is there such a thing as green/purple color blindness?)

I’m something of a >.> control freak though, so I do the actual scheduling. And have had some oops.

I’ve tried really hard I think the past year+ but … just to address the all encompassing *waves hand vaguely* but also that we might be on hiatus, and/or I’ll be back dating posts (like this one!), which is the “apologies” part – to the wonderful review crew, and guest authors.

It’s also a bit of a “sorry not sorry.” In that … I really am truly sorry when posts don’t go up as scheduled. I really do try with A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet, and I want to keep trucking on. Especially considering the hundreds of dollars (literally) I’ve sunk into this site.

… The “not sorry” part is though … there have been times I couldn’t (or can’t) walk, or times when I’ve literally lost my words. So … sorry (not sorry!) to the authors etc who can’t understand me not being able to talk or have words to me personally, outweighs the importance of their post or edits going up in a “timely manner.”

And sure, some people don’t know about all that shit I’m dealing with behind the scenes. And they don’t have to. But things are what they are. And I just wanted to explain to all of you … there’s justĀ all this shit going on.

So – as it says – my apologies. Thank you for sticking with me. <3 Hopefully this too shall pass with good resolutions and such … and as before and always, I’ll keep on keeping on to the best of my ability. [And also sorry I’m just too tired etc to even find a picture to pretty this post up.]

Much love to you all. <3

What Had Happened Was…

If you’re around a certain type of person, you hear that a lot. It becomes something of a joke … and I mean it here. A bit tongue in cheek, but also to explain. You may (or may not have noticed) that I kinda dropped off the face of the earth when it comes to ALBTALBS and my email. I’m on Twitter and Facebook a lot less, and there was a period I was gone for over a week. (Just saying that because only one person noticed, which is fine, but my point is I’m trying to explain, so I can’t assume people know things. I get there is a lot out there, and nobody gives a shit about keeping up with me and my life. Which I 100% get and am okay with. We all have our stuff, and lives.)

So … it’s been a lot. Deaths, family tragedy, an accident, serious health issues [hello surprise internal bleeding being just one thing of many…], work stuff, bad work stuff … lots of not work related court things … and Firefox constantly buggy enough for me to consider poking my eyes out. … Basically, I’ve had a rough time of it. It actually hasn’t been as bad as last year … but honestly I’d only wish my past month+ on someone I truly hated.

I am sorry and do feel badly about dropping the ball. Believe me – I feel guilty. I still feel guilty about not reading and reviewing ARC(s) I agreed to from 2007. My plan is to fill in posts – backdate especially since I was absent for pretty much all of Smithsonian Hispanic Heritage Month …. so if anyone is willing to write posts for it still … I’d love to have you.

For better or for worse I did renew the domain for at least another year, so we’ll just trudge along, shall we? There’s still hope for me yet, right? >.> Maybe? :X
