Downshifting

When I started this blog, I resolved to write something every weekday. Not having tried anything like this before, I took the daily newspaper columnist as my role model. I like to talk about all kinds of things, and I have a lot to say, so I figured if they could do it, so could I.

I found out it's harder than it looks.

So beginning next week, I probably won't post here more than two or three times a week. And sometime between the week after Thanksgiving (when I get back from Hawaii) and Christmas Eve (when my paid membership expires), I plan to retire this blog.

The best friends I've made here have all left, or they've curtailed their activities here, or they have other things going on in their lives that are a higher priority. So being here is not as much fun as it once was. And truth be known, there are things going on in my life as well that need more attention than I've been giving them. I'm getting a strong feeling, growing stronger every day, that my purpose here has run its course, and it's time to move on.

I'll be around a while longer. Thank you to all of you who stop by, if only now and then. I'll try to keep you entertained right up to the end.

(does her best pouting) I refuse to sing "The Final Countdown" here even if I DO love that damn song.

(whispers) C'mon, don't rush away so quickly. There's still much to see and do here - fresh faces coming and going, now outlooks.

In the words of Lisa Loeb .... stay.

(hugs you warmly)

Too bad I couldn't type correctly for that eh? (rolls eyes) UGH!

You must have known I could use a hug today, Lil. Warm or otherwise. Thanks.

Speaking of fresh faces, when will I get to see yours? If it's anything like the toe, it's bound to be cute as a button.

It happens to the best of us, Pilsbury.
If I were about to head to Hawaii I sure as hell wouldn't be here.
I like that little snail, very cute. I am
jeepgirljr at the place where cowboys holler when they're happy.

I hope you don't leave. You can still blog as a standard member you know.

But if you do, I wish you success and much happiness in your life.

I've always liked the way jayR handled it, berri. She's still here and posting in other people's blogs. But she doesn't blog regularly herself much anymore. That's sort of what I had planned.

I'm just tired. I've always wanted to keep this thing fresh, and it's starting to feel stale, whether other people see it that way or not. I also feel like I'm addicted to AdultFriendFinder, and I don't like the feeling.

No need to say say goodbye. You know where I'll be. I'm still there.

Maybe you are right about things running their course. It is always a good thing when you are paying attention ...

You are right about things running their course. And the way you are doing it seems healthy to me.

It is always a good thing when you are paying attention ...

We admit we are among those who are saddened though your reasons are good ones (your blog is not stale though). We know what you mean about feeling addicted to AdultFriendFinder and not liking it...yet still sorry to hear you will be cutting back.
