You might have noticed a crazy wide gap between the date of my last blog post and this one. What gives? Man, I dropped this blog like a hot potato. It was never my specific intention to stop blogging when I did. I just gave myself permission to take a little break, which turned into a sabbatical, which turned into a downright refusal to go back to it. The only reason I’m even doing this post now is because I was updating a page or two on my website and I was already logged in.
Yeah. That’s how apathetic I’ve become where blogging is concerned.
The truth is, I looooooooooooove not blogging. I have reclaimed oodles and oodles of time in my schedule to do other things (or not do anything at all). I have enjoyed the hell out of that.
In the interest of brevity (and the desire to log back off as soon as possible), I’ll just say thanks to former readers for joining me along the way, and invite you to follow us on Facebook, where I still post on occasion.
Thank you so much for letting your fans know what’s going on. I’ve been worried that you or a loved one was sick or that you were struggling in some other way. I was visiting my daughter in Austin a few weeks ago and was tempted to do some detective work just to make sure things were OK. I’m really going to miss your blog. It had just the right combination of information, advice and humor, not to mention great photos and a design aesthetic dear to my heart. I’ll be the first to sign up if you ever decide to return to the blog scene. Best wishes for continued success!
Wow, thanks for your note, Kathryn. I really appreciate that. After nearly six years of generating 99% of the content, I just burned myself out. I felt a little justified in dropping the blog when it seemed like no one even noticed. So thanks for your kind words and your thoughtfulness and concern. That means a lot 🙂
