It's official:

I suck at blogging. I was going really good for a few years, but I just can't seem to get to it these days. It's not that I don't think about it. Almost every day, certainly a few times a week, something happens that I think "I should blog about this". It's usually something small and boring, but interesting to me even if to no one else.

However, I just can't seem to make the time to get to it. I have the same excuses as everyone else; school, work, family, blah blah blah. But the blog has become more of an albotross hanging over my head than the joy it once was. I have that sense of obligation to post and then the guilt when I don't.

I find the guilt thing a little ironic since I've been working on a major mental cleanup to get rid of useless guilt. You know the type I mean, where we beat ourselves up over the simple mistakes we've made as we travel through life, or that our house isn't clean enough, or the weeds are overtaking the garden, or other useless mental clutter that we don't need. I've decided I don't need to feel guilty over the blog either.

So officially I am taking a hiatus from the blog. I may still pop in from time to time to post some excruciatingly boring Tabby pics or something, but I'm not going to put myself on any kind of schedule or obligation to do it. I'll still keep reading everyone elses blogs, and may even start leaving comments again since commenting will no longer bring me guilt over not having any new posts of my own! ;)

I'm so sad to hear this, but I completely understand at the same time. I've thought about quitting my blog a few times. I also feel pressure to update sometimes even when it's the last thing I feel like doing. PLEASE stop by and comment just so I can sort of stay in touch with you.

That's too bad. I always enjoy popping in to see what you've been up to. I'm still going to keep you on my list!

Best of luck!

No guilt allowed! We do what we can. And, boring is good.
