i got a notification from stat counter this morning that i've maxed my free account, which means data archives will be lost going forward (nothing i've written is on the chopping block, just the view stats for those old posts). it got me thinking about how i haven't been writing on here much and why. i've come to the conclusion that i used to use this digital parchment for stress management purposes. i've always said this space is my paperless journal, and it truly was for quite a while.
i haven't been writing blog posts regularly because i've found different methods for my stress management and see that keeping the blog updated is now adding stress. some of my new activities take my time away from the blog, others help make the things i used to write about seem too insignificant to catalog... and let's be honest, i did a lot of my writing at work during slow periods, but now i don't have any of those anymore, really. in fact, just yesterday i was chugging along at a good pace, keeping myself afloat nicely. i glanced at the clock thinking it must be about 10:30 and time to start prioritizing work to cover my lunch break la dee da dee da... it was 12:15.
i'm not saying i will never touch this blog again, but it's definitely not something i'm going to count as on-the-back-burner anymore. i'm taking it off the stove to leave room for new things.
it was really fun and i'm glad i was able to entertain a few of you. this blog was started because of supportive loved ones that enjoy my word thoughts. this blog is responsible for the wonderful relationship i have now. this blog was something i would look forward to doing and had fun with. it has become a task on a long list and it deserves better.
i just got a little emotional...
i hate very much when i enjoy reading someone's blog and they quit on me, but it's always better when they say goodbye first so... don't go changing just to please me.
