Calling it quits

I've lost ground I don't think I want to make up. I've posted almost daily since October1, 2007. I cannot keep up the daily grind. I did fairly well until mid-summer, then a fun life got in the way.

I'm not a quitter, so I hate quitting, but I officially cannot keep it up.

I think I got a lot out of posting daily. It made me seek variety and look more deeply at the mundane. It's been a good record, although I found myself not saying all that I wanted to, because it was ongoing, but then I'd never get back to the summary.

If I left anything hanging, let me know.

Otherwise...Case closed.

PS - I am posting because I feel compelled to post, of course. I got a good start to September. Go figure. It's in my blood, but it'll work its way out.

calling it quits on daily posting or on the blog entirely...I'm guessing (and hoping) you just mean the daily posts??

but I am a bit confused...

be well

I never feel like posting every day is a must. I have been known to take days off, weeks off, weekends off....I don't ever want my blog to feel like a job.

You don't have to post every day...I know I always check to see if something new is up, if not I move on. I have all of my blogs I visit on my "bookmarks bar" and check once a day to see who has new up.

Look over here -------------->

I committed to Blog 365.

Before that, I committed to NaMoBloMeWhatever month where I blogged daily for Oct, noooo, it's November. I didn't take December off, so I've kept it up since November last year.

So, yeah, I said I'd do something, but can't anymore.

Gianna, in a month, it's my four year anniversary. I'm too hooked to stop!

I understand, but you'll still be terribly missed. :(

I understand being hooked! Even when I feel like I'm on my death bed, which happens from time to time, as you know, my mind is always thinking...what to post next...I don't do anything online without thinking, how can I make this into post...either by what I'm doing triggering thoughts to write about or just linking to something I find interesting...

It does feel like a job to me...but one I like! And in fact it is my job...I do consider it my work!

Glad you're sticking around---would really miss you if you truly called it quits.

Whew! I thought you were saying you were quitting altogether.

I post most days, just to make myself write as much as possible, but I definitely take days off. Sometimes I just don't feel like it.

I barely have enough time or enough to say to blog twice a week, let alone every day.

It was a valiant effort!

NoRegrets said...

OK, read comments before I also asked if you were quitting for good... Every day for a year. Whew...

Hey girl - I can relate to this feeling. Sometimes I like the blog but sometimes I feel like it's homework ya know?

I say - take your time and post when you're up to it. And if not, no worries. But trust me, I can RELATE! I tend to say F@CK this, and screw that but then my boredom kicks in and I need to talk to others.
