I have been absent from Medium for a long time.

My beloved husband, business partner, and companion of almost 20 years passed away last summer.

Needless to say, overcome by loss, I stepped away from my blogging duties. For instance, I stopped publishing as many blog posts.

Also, I stopped writing away from my blog, and I stopped promoting my articles on social media. YouTube videos? Forget it.

One of those duties included removing myself from writing on Medium, Quora, and Self Growth where I used to also publish my blog post articles.

I got myself emotional support via an individual therapist and a support group in August.

Slowly I returned to an abridged version of my blogging tasks.

As part of our bereavement group expectations, we met our group members offline in September.

The next thing I knew, I was asked out by and started dating one of the members.

As it turns out, we have many mutual interests including technology. For instance, we often discussed social media tools like TikTok tools.

I branched out on new blog topics as a result of our conversations about business and technology at my site
