Whelp folks, I've reached my limit. The limit of what I can realistically do in a week. Between taking care of myself, my animals, writing, slush reading, blogging, working, etc., it's just become too much and something has to give.
When I was spending extended periods over the summer by myself, and when my reactor at work wasn't working, I had the time to blog five days a week. But right now? It's just too hard and I can't keep up this pace.
I think I did pretty well, all things considered, and now it's time for a change. Most people, unless they are professional bloggers, do not blog every day during the week. No, they blog at most maybe once a week. That is a pace I think I can sustain.
So this is just a friendly announcement that I've decided to cut back my blogging to once per week, only because I really need to devote more of my time to writing. I have thoughts. I enjoy sharing them online. But ultimately my goal is to become published, not to become a professional blogger. So this is me pivoting to new ideas and new methods.
If I feel like I can up the blogging rate again, then I will. And who knows, from time to time, I may throw in a mid-week post. Sometimes I'm just busting to share an idea.
But I've decided my new blogging schedule will be once a week, posting on Sunday mornings.
I hope you understand (if there is anyone out there who cares). It was just getting to be a bit much and I had to make a choice. This past week of Thanksgiving break was an unexpected delight having some time off from the blog (and the twitter monitoring that sort of goes with the business). I didn't realize what stress I was putting on myself posting daily until I allowed myself to forget all that for most of a week.
So I decided, hey, why not focus on taking care of me and take a break? What's the harm? Like I said, I'll still blog, once a week on Sundays, but otherwise, I'm doing my best to get rid of unnecessary stresses in my life.
Thanks for reading and I will be back on Sunday!
