Every once in awhile, I come across a blog that just kinda ends – and I often wonder what happened to that blogger. Did they go off on a solitary hike, and fall off a cliff? – were they the victim of a traumatic accident, and have lost the ability to continue their blogging activity? Or did they suddenly just die? That does happen, you know.
I can remember that scenario playing out with a blogging friend I had several years ago, who retired and upped and moved, all by herself to Mexico, where she literally started a new life – she had a blog about her experiences and I loved reading it – in fact, it was really my motivation to begin taking winter sojourns to Mexico. But one day, my friend’s blog just ended. Some time later, her son added a final post to her blog, explaining to all her readers that she had suffered a heart attack and passed away in her beloved Mexico.
Well I didn’t want to leave my readers -however few- with that same ‘sudden ending’ feeling that all blog readers inevitably encounter. So this post is notice that I’ll be taking a blogging break, maybe just temporarily – we’ll let time decide how long. I’m doing this because I’ve lost the sense of fun that blogging once held for me – and when that happens, there seems little reason to continue to force one’s self into production of mediocre posts.
And so I say, ’til next time’, and wish you all well – and here’s hoping that my inner muse repairs my spirit of blogging adventure and enjoyment – soon.
