No, no. Don't worry. It's not a permanent farewell. I am merely taking a short break from blogging (or a long break, depending on how you look at it).
|"Didn't you just do that? I feel like you just did that..."|
|"Yeeees, of course I did. But one week wasn't long enough..."|
|"So. I'm taking another break. And that's that."|
|"Well, hurrah for you!"|
Actually, I don't know if it's "hurrah" or not, but I'm pretty sure it's necessary. You see, I'm feeling rather burned out. There are so many projects piling up on me, and I'm starting to sense that cloud of stress descending upon me. I know I need to cut back on something, and since blogging is my number one distraction--and the thing that takes up the largest amount of my time--I figured that's what needs to go. And yes, I know. This is horrible timing, considering that August is going to be the Month of the Blog Parties, but I really don't know what else to do.
I won't be posting at all during the month of August (unless, of course, some unforeseen circumstance arises to change that), and I'm also going to be a lousy friend and not do any commenting because, to be honest, commenting takes up SO much of my time. (Because I'm a perfectionist, and I like to comment on as many of my friends posts as I can--as soon as I can--and if there are a lot of posts coming in, well...let's just say I have a tendency to neglect other projects in attempting to stay on top of that one.)
Anyway. All that to say...
Naomi, Olivia, and Emma. I'm really sorry I won't be able to participate in your blog parties, but I want you to know that I will still be reading and enjoying your posts. (In fact, I'll probably be enjoying them more simply because I'll be able to read them at my leisure without worrying about finding that large, elusive chunk of time in which to read and comment. :))
I guess that's all I wanted to say. I hope you all have a lovely August, and I'll see you in September! :D
