I’m going to be taking a break from blogging for a bit. In the eternal quest to find balance in my life, writing this has become more of a chore than a pleasure. I need to rethink it, and figure out how it fits into my life.
Losing my original blog was a real blow, and I’ve never been able to garner the same passion for this one. And I’m sure it’s showed. I also have so many things I want to do, and not enough time to do them. So thinking of something to post here every day, and then posting, takes up too much of that precious time. Time I could actually be working on a book, or a song, or finding a way to make money writing…
That’s not to say that I won’t post every now and then when the mood strikes me, or when I feel something needs saying. But I can’t view it as a daily responsibility any longer. A dear and wise friend pointed out that I’ve spent a good part of my life doing things to please others, and not pleasing myself. And keeping this blog going has been part of the former: I haven’t wanted to disappoint my readers. And that’s not a good enough reason to do it any more.
If you sign up for an RSS feed, WordPress will let you know if and when I post again. Or you can keep stopping by to check, just in case I achieve my every goal and dream, and have time to spare to post. In the meantime, thank you for being out there, for caring about what I’m up to, for being supportive of a stranger (some of you, anyway), for leaving comments and making me feel like I wasn’t writing into a void. Drop me a line via the contact page if you want to email me, and I’ll be happy to stay in touch that way.
But for now, it’s time I did some serious thinking about how I plan to spend my days, and find that elusive balance between paying the bills and pursuing my passions. Unless someone out there wants to pay me to blog, in which case I’m all ears!
Have a wonderful weekend, and holiday season. I’ll be back…
