A LITTLE RAIN IN LANCASTER,OHIO. MOST OF THE SNOW HAS MELTED AND THE TEMP IS OK. MARCH 14TH 2010
WILL BE BACK WHEN I GET:
I APOLIGIZE FOR NOT GETTING AROUND AND COMMENTING ON ALL THE WONDERFUL BLOG POSTS. I HAVE BEEN ASSURED THIS IS JUST A TEMPORARY CONDITION. Thanks Joe Todd
Don't pressure yourself, Joe. I--and probably everyone else--aren't going anywhere.
It happens to all of us from time to time... I did notice last year that as spring/summer approached, most bloggers slacked off considerably on blogging, because everyone was enjoying the grand outdoors. It's only natural... but sometimes I honestly think I'm going to chuck the whole blog thing, FB and Twitter... and then I find renewed reasons and energy to continue on with it all.Sometimes, however, I do wonder: Is this a technological phase we are all going through, all these blogs out there on the 'net, and one day many will cease to be as this "fad" fades out?
I have been feeling the burn out too. Too many gray days without a lot of color, tired from work and not a lot of energy for commenting. Also maybe a desire for a new direction in blogging without a clue about which way to go. I guess it's normal.
My philosophy is to blog when you feel like it; don't blog when you don't feel like it. If you feel like you HAVE to blog, it is too much like work.
I'm sure I will suffer with blog burn-out some time. I suppose it happens to everyone. I get though it's not worth pressuring ourselves.I'll miss your posts, Joe, and your lovely pictures, but just know you will be in my prayers.You take good care of yourself and may God richly bless you today and every day!
We all go through it, Joe... It's NORMAL. I seem to recover when we go on a trip ---and we don't blog while gone. When I get home with lots of new pictures to share, I recover from my burn-out!!!!!The hardest thing for me is keeping up with everyone else's posts.... I love blogging ---and feel obligated to visit others' blogs if they comment on mine. BUT--it gets hard finding time to do it all... BUT--overall, I still love blogging and have met so many wonderful people. My favorites are always people that I get to know on a personal level. Check back when you feel like it. We'll be here.Betsy
Blog burnout? Sorry to hear that.
a blog about not blogging? works for me
I have been watching with curiosity the change in participants on some of the memes I frequent. I know I don't feel the need to participate every week in every meme as I did in the beginning but I do still enjoy keeping in touch with bloggers. No guilt, no pressure, enjoy the break!Smiles
It happens to all of us eventually and the best thing to do is cut yourself some slack ... only blog when you feel like it and it brings you joy. We'll be here when you're up to it again. I'm WAY behind on blog visits with 470 unread posts in my 'reader' ... though when I started out this morning that number was almost 950. I'm always grateful to those who include the whole post in their feeds (like you do) so it's easy for me to catch up on several posts before clicking over to comment. Hugs and blessings,
