I finally got the gold stamp of approval for my trademark, Blogatrixx®, this past week. It took nine whole months for my letter to arrive from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Why, then, do I not feel like writing? Perhaps I have writer’s block. I have read that the hardest thing for a writer to do is to write! But the biggest hurdle lately on my writing (or the lack thereof) is the fact that I don’t know where I’m traveling to next. There are a few obstacles in the months ahead with my work schedule as well as a few personal matters which allows for my indecision on my next travel adventure. I hope these obstacles melt away soon so that I can feel alive again by traveling and writing.
I actually did take a small trip this past week. I am at the top 1% of sales at my job, and I am rewarded with a yearly trip somewhere (a domestic flight) for a couple of days. This year it was at the Waldorf Astoria Resort in Boca Raton, Florida. I took a girl friend with me, and we had a really nice time walking on the beach, eating, drinking, and catching up. We ate and drank so much that I felt like a food blogger when I was posting pictures on Instagram and Twitter. The trip was better than I expected, especially since I’m not so keen on domestic travel. However, I can’t wait for my next trip that requires a passport!
