"i admit, i visit your blog every day so i would hate to see it go. that said, i would hate for you to feel like blogging was an obligation, especially if it starts to become tedious or forced for you."
Thanks Brat. I truly appreciate your daily visitation and commentary when times get rough. While I don't necessarily feel as though I'm forcing my daily posts or am obligated to add something every day, I often wonder how far my reach is. In other words, is this medium continuing to serve its purpose or would I fair better by having a personal journal no one sees?

Sorry I've been silent the last few posts--I was on the road. I, too, would hate to see your blog go. I think there's plenty of time and energy to do your blogging and your writing and that thinking the former is taking away from the latter may possibly be another ploy of the Resistance the writer's brain inevitably throws up to keep anything from getting done. My guess is that you're like me: the only thing standing between you and not writing is not writing. On the other hand, if you feel the urge to take a break, take it--we'll be here when you get back.
As always, my appreciation goes out to you, Tom. Your insight into how I'm feeling in the moment is unique to me in that it somehow rings true to who I am. As a fellow writer, you too appear to have visited my familiar haunts which in turn makes your commentary comforting, applicable, and touchable. As for the aforementioned break: I don't know if it's a break from blogging or a break from my life that is warranted. There's a great deal of shit going down right now and I feel like I'm being drawn and quartered. I KNOW it 's going to get worse before it gets better, but coming to terms with that idea BEFORE it happens is something I really need to consider.

hey dude, just checking in.funny... i had the same thought about my blog the other day. i've just had it so long i think i'm attached now. and then delightful strangers like you find me and well, that's the fun of it i guess.hope all is well. i have some reading to do on squirrel turds...
Hiya Lindsi! I miss hearing from and/or reading you. I was in the process of changing blog skins and accidently erased EVERYTHING except for my archives. BUMMER! Then again, maybe there's something to be said for that having happened? Who knows? In any event, thanks for adding your thoughts. It makes me feel better knowing that there are a few people out there willing to lend an ear.

My first visit to your blog (links from bored housewife's) and you talk about leaving? Jeez, dude, I just clicked! Com'n, don't go... plah-eeeeeze? i have my bored moments with my own blogs (2 of them, one you will know about and the darker one you may chance upon). Now go look at my perty flowers and skip along to writing your next blog entry. I mean, if you want to, I don't give orders.Peace.
Thanks for stopping by, Sandra. The "Bored" one is a kick in the ass, isn't she? Nonetheless, I'm glad you stopped by. After hearing from some of these fine folks above, I think I'll keep it up for a little while longer - hope you still want to stop by.

you may chance upon my other blog by accident when you click next blog button. I do need to update it and maybe i'll send you a link. Especially if you write some good stuff in YOUR blog.
Looks like I need to do some searcing...

just because i'm curious....
what kind of music do you listen to when you're feeling down? is there any song or band that picks your mood right up when you listen to them?

No Brat. There's not one style of music I listen to when I'm feeling down. It basically comes down to whatever feels right at the moment.

I know there are those detractors who say that certain styles can enhance or subdue your mood, but generally speaking, that's not the case. It could be James Taylor, Hatebreed, the Solsonics, Ministry, Public Enemy... whatever, you know?
