So ....

Hard to know where to start.  Hard to know what to say.

I find myself in an odd position ...

I wouldn't call it a "blog fade," but it might be a "blog cliff."  I sort of feel like I fell off of a cliff back in February when I suddenly stopped blogging.

I have spent some time trying to sort out in my mind why I am not blogging.  I asked myself a bunch of questions.

  • Are you giving up your blog?  No, I don't think so.  That doesn't feel right.
  • Are you going to blog in the near future?  No, I don't think so.  I am not really inspired to do so.
  • Do you know why you are not blogging?  Not completely.  I get ideas for posts, I take pictures ... but it stops there.
So here I sit trying to figure out why I am not doing more of this thing ... this thing that I am doing right now.

What I do know is that over my life time I have a habit of over committing ... and then dropping out ... and then creeping back into stuff again ... until I over commit again ... then drop out ... and ... and ... and ...  It is a lot like going in circles.

Been there.  Done that.  Seem to be doing it again!

I kind of feel that I am busy enough right now.  The priority stuff gets done and the rest seems to have fallen off my radar.  *sigh*

Anyway, I thought I would drop in just to say hi!  Everything is alright here.  Life is full and busy.  I miss being here, I really do, but I can't seem to get my act in gear just yet to write.

So ... I am off again.  Not blogging yet!

Take care all.  I'll check in again when my head is more connected to my neck!!



  1. I am glad you will be back blogging in future. Just write a short post to say hi if you are not further inspired; I love to hear from you.

  2. Sometimes you just need a break. If you miss it, you could try writing some shorter posts, mostly pictures. A bunch of us are doing the A to Z blog challenge. That might inspire you. Or, just rest. That's ok, too.

  3. Sensible suggestions. Must admit my blog 'get up and go,' has got up and gone lately, so my sympathies are with you.

  4. I have been going back and forth about blogging for months. Even switched over to a whole new blog. I don't know. I like blogging and writing is a good outlet for me, but my heart's not always in it. At the last minute I decided to do the A to Z Challenge and see what that does for me.
    Your blog has always been one of my favorites so I do hope you decided to come back. No hurry though. You need to do what's right for you. Take care!

  5. Life gets busy....when things settle down you will wander back to your keyboard. We'll be here. Take care.

  6. LOL - lower expectations is my current phrase of choice. There is so much going on sometimes that takes everything. Also, I need need some do-nothing space. When you are ready to enjoy it you will be back.

  7. You'll know when the time is right to start in again. Relax and enjoy your break.
    We'll still be here when you come back!! : )

  8. I think we all need a break now and then. :)

  9. I like your dropping in style . . .


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
