A Break

It’s become quite evident that if I don’t go blogging, people aren’t going to come here. And yet, at the moment, I have no urge to go blogging. I don’t know what it is – blogging burnout? I used to go to so many blogs it would take hours to do my list. I got tired. Shoot, I’ve gotten tired of writing my own blog. So I guess I’m going to take a little sabbatical here. Maybe when I start the job hunt, interview process or something, I’ll have something to write about. Right now, it’s just the heat and me. Nothing else to talk about. I don’t have out-laws to gripe about, children to talk about, or anything else of any interest to anyone. I don’t know how long I’ll be gone, I’ll let you know when I’m back. Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me. I promise, I will return.

Love to you all.

Blogging must be running the end of its course...although I love that I can keep in contact with you...but then we do have email and phones ;)

I feel you...the luster of blogging wore off some for me too. Of course, I don't have anything to say either, lol. We'll just have to work email and phone :) Hugs!

Well, even if you don't do blogging, you still have MySpace. Although, now what will I do with all those funny things people send me that were so "bloggable"?

Susan said...

Bailey, I could never have a blog of my own because every day is the same for me. I completely understand and will patiently wait for your return. Take good care of yourself!

Brandy said...

I'll miss you, but understand. Please take care and know I'm thinking of you. Hugs.

Awww. No worries, I've got you in my feed reader, so when you return, I'll read you!

I haven't been commenting as much lately. I have been reading, though. :-)

Lexi said...

We'll miss you! But it's totally understandable. We'll be here when you want to return!

Bailey Stewart said...

Ahh Natasha, see? I thought no one was really reading it anymore. That makes me feel a little better.

Dru said...

We'll be here if and when you come back. Good luck on your job search.

Scott said...

I know just how you feel. Most of my readers are gone for various reasons, one of them being my lack of responsiveness and new posts. It happens. You run out of things to say.

Come back when you're ready. Your true blog friends will still be around, assuming they're still blogging.

We'll miss you but I totally understand. I used to do live chats ad got tired of them, I used to enter a lot of contests and got tired of them, and now visiting blog is beginning to wane. The only thing I haven't gotten tired of our the games and youtube - thanks for your last post - made me laugh and cry.

Some of us come, Bailey.
We may not leave a comment, may not come every day, but we come.
Take care of yourself.

I've had my break from blogging too and am starting to feel like coming back to it. Hope you will too!

Toni Anderson said...

I'm not blogging much either. I am loving seeing you on MySpace and Facebook, even if I don't reply. I'm single parenting for a few weeks, editing, and kids have so much stuff going on in the run up to school holidays. It is insane!!! But I'm here for you, always.

Like many things, blogging has reached some moderate levels. After all, there is really only so much that I, at least, can find to talk or write about, or comment on . Some of the rest just becomes empty chatter.

So when you feel like blogging, when there's something you feel particularly excited or strongly about. I would imagine that a one-person blog must become rather stressful. Even writers on group blogs sometimes write something like "It's Tuesday so it's my turn to blog. I'm racking my brain..."

But then, I'm not a very talkative person to begin with.LOL

I wish these Google blogs would tell us when a person has a new entry and not only when a certain thread has a new comment. Most of the time it just takes me too much effort to even go to the different sites. I'm like Susan--my life is the same most days too. I'd even say it's definitely boring and that I'm boring. LOL

Ranurgis said...

I think in a way that at first blogging represents friends getting to know each other. Unless we lead very active and diverse lives, we may not always find new things to talk about.

And what I meant to say was that you should blog when you feel like it and not have it become a chore.

My news is that I'll be moving again--the third time since Oct. 05 by the end of July. I hope this one goes better than the other two and that I'll like it better than here.

Hi Bailey,

We all need holidays at some stage. We'll still be here when you're ready to go again. :)
