I am immensely fond of you all...eleventy-one years is too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits...I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve....I wish to make an announcement...I regret to announce that—though, as I said, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to spend among you—this is the end. I am going. I am leaving now. Good-bye.I love Blogger, I love blogging, and I love all of my wonderful followers and all of their wonderful blogs.
-Bilbo, The Fellowship of the Ring
But, like Bilbo, I am in desperate need of a break.
I have been neglecting my writing as of late in favor of blogging—and writing is a much higher priority to me right now than blogging.
I need some more time to write, some more time to journal, some more time to study photography, some more time to graphic design, some more time to learn html and some more time to read the Bible—and giving up blogging will help grant me that time.
And there are other reasons why I'm giving it up for a while...but they're complicated.
Don't get me wrong. I love blogging. I love you all. I just need a break from it all.
I don’t have the self-control to give up blogging entirely—so I will continue to update my photography blog, and I will moderate comments (your comments always make my day...I couldn't do without them. ;).
I’ll be back on March 23rd—hopefully. I may extend my "vacation" for longer than that, but for now I'm planning on the 23rd.
Await lots of pictures and ponderings and stories from my vacation to Florida (I leave in a few weeks!) on my return.
I'll see you then,
