When I started this blog, the idea was to keep the writing muscles limber. And I do so over the course of a thousand or so posts, some good, some okay, but all trying to be a little bit of myself bled out onto the internet.
Lately I’m starting to feel like I don’t need to bleed as much anymore. Or that I don’t want to. All I know is it’s become something I feel like I have to do rather than something I want to do. And that’s a point beyond which it’s rarely good to continue anything.
I don’t want to say I’m calling it quits. But I am taking a break. Maybe I’ll find the drive to start this up again after a while. Maybe I will, but without the looming obligation of “Daily” hanging over it, posting only when I feel like I have something to say. Or maybe I’ll let this be the capstone on the whole thing, and try to put this energy into other pursuits.
Whatever the case, thanks for coming along for the ride. While I’ve done this primarily for myself, the support and comments I’ve received have meant a lot, and if some of my words made someone smile or think, then this whole thing has been worth it.
Since this may be just a pause and not an ending, I won’t say goodbye. I’ll just say until we meet again.
