I've decided, after much difficulty, to take a hiatus from blogging for awhile. It pains me to conclude this, as I always feel drawn in and because often what I write seems to have value and maybe even helps one more person, another reader who finds some answer or comfort or insight gleaned from our words.
I just can’t seem to “only blog a little.” I’ve tried. I’ve tried only doing it on lunch hour or before or after work, but it never stays limited to just that. There’s always more to read, to reply to, to post.
Working for myself has allowed me the luxury of blogging as much as I have, but I must devote a solid, next several months to that work now, at minimum. There just isn’t enough time in a day, and there are some important things requiring my undivided attention and earnest effort right now.
I’m sorry to leave Emily in the lurch temporarily, and I’m sure I won’t be able to resist some posts here and there. But if I don’t say no to one thing, I have to say no to other things that I can’t say no to anymore.
This—not blogging—is going to be among the toughest things I’ll ever do. For those who blog, you know what I mean. It could easily be a full-time job. But not for me. Not yet anyway!
Know that I’m praying for all our readers and friends and your intentions and needs, and that way, at least, I’ll be able to “cover” you all in prayer, no matter if I know or can otherwise help with what your needs are, or not.
