I’ve given this a lot of thought and I have decided to excuse myself out of the blogosphere for a while. I feel as though my life is beginning to tip out of balance and in order to regain control, I need to focus my time and energy on some other areas.
Don’t worry, nothing bad is going on. It’s just that I really, really like writing and reading blogs. And you know what happens with true love, it just grows and grows. I feel that if I don’t change something soon, I’ll end up the Amy Winehouse of Bloggerville, strung out on reading about somebody’s friend’s sister’s aunt’s cousin’s dog-trainer’s boyfriend and his pet hamster (do you read that one, too?) while my children starve to death and my vacuum becomes a coat rack. So, I’m cutting myself off right now cold turkey. Because I’ve always enjoyed cold turkey. With cranberry sauce.
I’m going to get a little distance, rub my eyes, breathe some fresh air and then nibble on a cookie while I figure out where/if this should fit in my life. I don’t know how long I’ll be gone. I’m not sure if I’ve graduated from blogging, having learned and gained everything I can from it; or if I’m headed on a sabbatical, to learn and grow in other areas, only to return a better blogger/writer. From where I stand right now I can’t tell, so I’ll ask you to be patient. And if I never come back, I’ll ask you to be understanding.
But I think I’ll be back.
If I semi-frequently left comments on your own blog, please accept my sincere thanks for brightening my life and allowing a peek into your world. And please don’t take it personally when I don’t comment. It’s not personal, not at all.
So, this is the part where we’re both standing here and I’ve said all I had to say, and you’re staring at me with a completely confused look. I’m going to tell myself that your confused look is because you care and not because you’ve zoned out and begun thinking about that episode of Project Runway when they made costumes for the lady wrestlers.
This is the part where I hug you and thank you for coming, and especially for caring. And if you’ve been coming for a long time, I’m holding both of your hands and reassuring you that there are plenty of other (and frankly, better) places to visit on the Internet and waste your employer’s time.
Thank you and so long………for now.
