There were several surreal moments in India; I don’t even know where to start to share them, but here’s one that’s stuck with me and is relevant to this online space. We were having dinner in a Chinese restaurant (in India!) with our clients when suddenly one of them asked if I was still writing this blog.
My face turned red — I’m sure it did — as my brain scanned over the hundreds of posts here, thinking, what has he read? What have I written? I babbled something about my blogging history, not even doing justice to the time I’ve spent here, the committment to writing, the connections, friendships and real satisfaction I’ve gotten out of the creation and maintenance of this blog.
I finally recovered from the shock of realizing that yes, sometimes even clients google their consultants, (Hi Steve!) and learned that, this blog, after all is among the Top Ten most popular working mom blogs and that is not too shabby.
Now, if only I can return to unselfconsciously writing, all will be fine.
