And if I continue down my current path, it will be my sanity.
You see, as I was mentioning below, one of my favorite, if not THE favorite part of blogging is the interaction with my fellow bloggers. You make me laugh and cry and wonder and think and guffaw and mostly make me wish I had thought of it first.
But, and the big but, is that between this blog and my other blog and that other one featured up on the sidebar and commenting on everyone else's blog, I am doing a lousy job on all of them. At least, that is how I feel.
I usually make it a point to visit the blogs of people who have been kind enough to take the time to make their first comment here, and there are at least ten people that are still marked as "needing to visit." And that makes me feel bad, like I am a crappy fellow blogger. But my goodness, have you seen the size of that sidebar there? Not to mention the poor new people that come here and I seemingly ignore.
However, there are only so many hours in the day. I can spend my time commenting, or I can spend it cleaning the house (which unfortunately has to be done) or spending quality time with my kid, or one of millions of other things that I am currently neglecting somewhat. Among them the writing job that helps to pay the bills, which is also kind of important.
I have been blogging for over three years at this space, and I'm not sure if this particular blog has run its course. Most of the time lately the content here has been the last task of the day, the thing hanging over my head that I feel obligated to do, and that just seems wrong to feel that way. And I'm sure that attitude is reflected in the content as well.
So, I'm not saying for sure what is going to happen because I need more time to think it over, but I do know that I simply cannot keep up with this pace. I am, in my own strange way, a perfectionist, and I am currently spread much too thin for my liking. And I haven't even mentioned the nagging husband who accuses me of spending my life in front of the computer. Which truly is not the way I want to live.
