What should I do?
This blog began as a vehicle for the expression of thoughts about psychological concerns and experiences and a tad of creative writing.. Back in the late 1950’s as managing editor of the summer UF Alligator I had a weekly column that tended to be somewhat political called Artifacts. Later I received a PhD in clinical psychology and headed a sex offender treatment program at a state prison. In the meantime I had given birth to four children, the last of which was a cute redheaded daughter with Downs Syndrome. I had always been interested in writing, and at the time I began this blog in 2015 I had published a book on my experiences as both a treater of sex offenders and as a survivor of sexual abuse.
The old pull towards political activism (reduced now at 85 to this blog) has reared its head again, with subsequent loss of readership. I don’t do a good job at the political angle, and have left the enotional aspect to hang out to dry somewhat. I’m not looking for warm fuzzies but your considered suggestions.
Any suggestions as to where I should go? I’m running out of energy and almost no one visits my many pages, which I therefore fail to regularly maintain. I can’t just quit–this is my main outlet, especially in the age of self quarantine. It would be too boring to simply pass along other good sites. Starting an additional blog feels draining and I am already behind in that I don’t do the Gutenberg editor, partly because I haven’t the excess energy to cope with anything new…
