I'm gonna be real honest with you folks. As my loyal readers I believe you deserve to know the truth.
I'm finding it pretty difficult to care about blogging right now. It's not writer's block or a deficit of time that's been keeping me from this space. It's not you, it's me. When I embarked on this journey, the internet filled a very obvious void in my life. I was reaching out to find like minded people, parents who got what I was going through and shared my values. I needed to feel like I belonged to something. Blogging helped me to look deeper into myself, which ultimately led me to look outside of myself with a more open mind. By making friends in the virtual world, I have learned how to make better friends in the real world.
It's mostly those three dimensional friends you can blame for my absence. The void I felt 2.5 years ago has been filled. That empty space was what motivated me to write and now I find myself without inspiration. Now, before you get sad or mad or hungry, I would like to say that facebook shares some of the blame for my blog apathy. I have friended most of my favorite blog writers and readers and keep up to date with their lives that way. It's instant gratification.
Soooo, I am going to take a pretty good break from blogging. Maybe forever, maybe not. Anyone who wants to find me on facebook, is welcome to do just that. If you're here for the photos, I am active on flickr. I am also on twitter, but that account has withered, so I wouldn't bother. I am not gifted in the 140 character milieu.
Thank for everything and adieu.
