As the clock counts down on what is left of 2012 and all the political dramas that are unfolding, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy & Peaceful New Year.
I’ve been blogging since December 2005 when I started under the name Joanne’s Journey, and then eventually switched to WordPress and the present name BlueLikeYou.
I’ve made some great virtual and real-life friends through this blog and all the related activity.
However I’ve also reached a point where I need to take a break and reassess my own personal goals, priorities and time commitments.
As anyone who has a blog will tell you, it takes a crazy amount of time to keep up on a regular basis. There is a lot of technical behind-the-scenes work, as well as trying to keep up on current news items – before you even begin writing. And then there is that constant mental pressure of checking comments in case some get stuck in the filter, and trying to assess which ones might need to be deleted, and so on.
So I’m hoping this break will free me up to meditate a bit on where I’m going at this point and what my goals and priorities will be going forward.
While I am away on this little soul-searching journey I hope regulars here will find a new place to congregate. I highly recommend Sandy’s blog at Crux of the Matter.
Comments here may be open for a while but please do check out other terrific blogs at Blogging Tories.
Not sure if or when I’ll be back but thanks so much for all your support over the years.
You guys are the best.
