Following two weeks away from blogging, I was really raring to get back to it. I had tons of ideas, I craved my old routine, and I just really missed y’all.
But since my return to the blog, I have found that my head is somewhere else. All the ideas I had, I can’t seem to muster the energy to sit down and write about them. When it comes to responding to comments (something I pride myself on), I’m completely lagging. I’ve never been one to half-ass things; if I’m going to blog, I want to do it to the standards that I’ve set for myself, and right now, that just isn’t happening.
So I’ve decided to step back for a while. No new blog posts, no responding to comments, and I don’t know that I’ll be commenting on your blogs either. (I might, but I don’t want to set unrealistic expectations.) It’s been a tremendously hard month, and I think I need some time to reevaluate things in my life and figure out how I really want to spend my time. Time is something more precious than we give it credit for it, and I want to make sure that I’m completely satisfied with how I spend the time I have.
I thought about just disappearing, not posting any more, but I could never do that to you guys. When I started blogging, I figured it’d mostly be read by people who knew me in real life. I’ve been really lucky that so many wonderful strangers stumbled upon my blog, came back day after day to read the strange things I type up, and even leave sweet comments. You’ve laughed with me, you’ve supported me, and you took the time to read my blog. It’s more than I ever expected, and (during these recent hard times especially) it has meant a lot to me. Thank you for letting me share a little bit of myself with you.
I’ve also deleted my twitter, but if you want to stay in touch, shoot me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
With that, I bid you farewell.
