A sort of break

As you may have noticed I haven't posted for ages. Well by my standards for ages anyway.

I have often considered having a proper break from Blogging but have inevitably drifted back after a few days having stated my intention not to.

Of course I know it's considered etiquette to announce the fact you intend stepping back for a while. I had intended on doing so and for a few nights after the last post here on the 20th July thought to myself 'I really ought to post something about not posting anything'.

But then after a few days something went rather wrong with the computer. A signal just wouldn't get through to the monitor to say the the PC itself was working. On one occasion it did get as far as flashing up a message saying there was a problem with 'Graphic Acceleration' or something like that anyway.

Last night though the machine shuddered back into life. Not sure why but we have been scuttling around doing all of the on-line bill paying and administration as quickly as possible before it blows up again.

Onto the blogging thing. I think it may have been obvious for a little while that I just haven't been as enthused as during the first year of operation. The quality and quantity of posts gradually diminishing over the last couple of months or so. So I felt I really needed and still need a break from this.

Part of the problem is the hours which, as we all know, it takes to support these projects. For me it's pretty much impossible to get on the computer before 21.30hrs on any given day. So by the time the posts are researched / written / proof read and published and all the visits undertaken you're just not getting to bed before 01.00hrs. And that's how things have been for much of the last year and I think it's got to the stage where that's just not a sustainable position anymore. I haven't been feeling too good lately and perhaps a period of getting proper nights rest will help to address that.

I have been thinking of getting out completely. But there is this little voice that reminds me of the time and effort expended on this project and a sadness at leaving the blog friends / associates made since I started. It's a decision that we all have to face at some point but gosh its harder than I thought it would be.

So for the time being I'm back to the hiatus. And in truth it's probable that I will be back but it's also possible that I won't.

So if I don't come back I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to support this, the most humble home of bloggery.

That said, tomorrow I may, for once, come up with a really whizzy idea for a post and wild horses wouldn't drag me away from the keyboard.

We will see.

Take care.

oh no! Another good 'un stops. i really enjoyed your postings. Don't be a stranger too long....

Well I don't know how you people with young families do it frankly. It is an incredible amount of work so if it's not fun anymore, take a break.

Either you will come back or you will not, either way I am sure you have found it an incredible journey and you have probably learned quite a bit about yourself as well as something about the rest of the world out there.

I hope you, do but wish you well whatever your decision may be. Take care Grendel.

Well whatever happens -- good luck

CherryPie said...

Good luck with whatever you decide to do and most of all be happy :-)

I think we all need a break from the intensity of blogging from time to time, but like others say I'd be sorry to see you go all together. Perhaps just visiting and commenting elsewhere would feel like a compromise? Whatever you do finally decide good luck with it, BG x

Do come back, Grendel. I think it's just a summer thing, you know....

jams o donnell said...

I hope you're back soon Grendel. DOn't make the hiatus permanent!

Liz said...

Well, I'm glad you've told us where you've been and what you're doing: we do worry, y'know!

Come back when you're feeling refreshed.

Julie said...

Hmm... I like your blog. I will still call by from time to time to see if you have written anything new. Best, anyways. :-)

'Sort of break'


The two week sort that results in in depths posts on the universe, one hopes..

BobG said...

I'm glad to hear the hiatus wasn't due to an emergency or a medical problem. We'll still be dropping by from time to time in case the mood hits you.

Nunyaa said...

Hope to see you back when you are ready, all good thoughts for you and your family :)

Womble On Tour said...

Hope you come back; you're interesting and entertaining. I know absoutely what you mean about the time involved, though, and if you've got a young family then it's very hard.

Perhaps the thing to remember is why you started blogging in the first place; it probably wasn't for our benefit, and if you carry on then make sure it's for your own good, not anyone else's. You don't owe us anything and you're under no obligation to your readership !

Have a break and if it feels right to come back then it'll be great to see you.

Take care.

Calum said...

Making the final break is so difficult - or it was for me. I hope you return but, If you don't, many thanks for your posts, visits and comments.

I'll keep checking here.

This needs to be followed up. It happens to each of us and it does suck up the time like a vacuum cleaner.

Hope you do come back to it.

Hey Grendel, I've seen your little avatar about recently. I hope all is well and you might be considering venturing into print again.
Take care, regards jmb
