Just now, I came across this article about when it’s time to stop blogging. The author, Lorelle VanFossen, lists 15 tips for how you know it’s time.
Well, for a lot of reasons, and unfortunately, some of the 15 apply directly, it may be that time. At least for a while.
Now, even as I typed that last sentence, I immediately thought about how often we wanna-be bloggers are so self-centered, so self-important, that we actually think our checking out of the blogosphere would somehow greatly affect the ebb and flow of the universe. So we advertise the fact that we’re giving it a rest. As though it matters.
Well, I’m probably not done for good, because I do love the give and take, the ability to put a little piece of yourself out there for the world, if they choose to or if they stumble upon your stuff en route somewhere else, to grasp and share. I like that a lot.
But our internet provider is about to change, I don’t really know if I want to mess with the hassle of shifting this whole monstrosity over to the “new” Blogger, I’m kicking around the idea of a domain name, I’m playing with WordPress, and a whole lot of other factors are going into my thought process right about now.
I guess Lorelle’s tips just kind of hit me at an opportune time.
I’ll keep checking in on you guys. I’ll keep learning and connecting and having those “hmmmm” and “aha!” moments, and probably before long, I’ll be back again.
Thanks for playing. Keep up your good stuff!
