To Blog or not to Blog

When I first started blogging a few years ago, it seemed to be a good opportunity to let my friends and loved ones in on my life. We are all so far away from each other now and it's often difficult to keep in touch. A blog seemed like a good way to chronicle my day to day life and my friends could check in once in awhile.

It hasn't quite worked out that way. It tends to get me into more trouble than it really helps maintaining connections. Things that I say can be misconstrued in ways I hadn't anticipated. And I may unintentionally hurt people's feelings. So, I'm going to go on hiatus for awhile and think about what to do. At least for a week or two.

I'll continue to follow my favorite blogs. I always love seeing where Vieve has travelled to next. And Frank....I'm reading a book right now that reminds me a lot of you for some reason. It's called "Eat Pray Love." You should check it out.

Ah...to blog or not to blog...did Hamlet ever have angst like this?

Wow! Your blog has such a history that I'm surprised you're considering throwing in the towel. What happened? Are you unhappy in California?
