An Apology and a Decision

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here and I apologize for that. I’ve been so busy with my other blog (To Breathe is to Write) and with writing that I have neglected things here to an unforgivable degree.

Next month will be a super busy one for me as I’ve committed myself to doing NaNoWriMo again this year.

For those of you who don’t know about NaNo, that’s where thousands of us crazy writers get together and write 50,000 words in the month of November. I did it last year and managed to do it. This year I’m hoping to finish it also.

So once again that means that this blog will be neglected some more. So I am trying to make the decision to either shut it down completely. Or do one or two posts a month.

I’m asking for your input. This was my first blog and I’ve enjoyed finding and posting all the recipes and trivia that you find on here. I’m just not sure I will have the time or energy to put into it anymore.

Once a month? Twice a month? Close it down? I just don’t know!

Would doing a post once a month work with all of you? Let me know what you think in the comments section. I appreciate your loyalty and help.

I’ll make my decision soon and let you all know. Thank you.

    Honestly I think you should do whatever is the most comfortable to you. If the other blog is enough or the right outlet for you to share through then go with . On the note of nano , many people would understand , and you are always welcomed when you post again (:

      Thank you for your comments. I appreciate it. I kind of hate to give it up because it was my first blog and I enjoyed doing it. Just writing is my love. :-)

        Well this could always be a place for silly days toos when you don’t feel much like writing elegantly or by the rules, I know I abuse that a whole lot on my blog haha this is my first too (:

    I say keep it open.Nothing wrong with just one post for the month. Then again you might want to make a few mini posts to let us know how things are going. Whichever way you go with I wish you Mega-LUCK!

      thanks Francis. So far that is the way I”m leaning.

    If you want to keep it open, once a week, or regular mini posts sounds good. But ultimately it is your blog and you have to do what is best for you. If the other one is where you’re spending all your time now, then go with that. :-) good luck with NaNo!

    I think you should keep it open as writing is hard and you’ll need a break at times. Plus, we’ll all miss you! :)

      I’m leaning towards keeping it going. Thanks :-)

        Yay, that’s great news! I hope that you have a great weekend :)

    I would continue to read with fewer posts! As for how many posts you write, or if you want to shut it down, that’s your call my dear!

      Thank you Diana. I’m going for once or twice a month. If I can do more I will, if I can’t I won’t. I just won’t let it get to me, well I’ll try not to let it.

        It’s your blog, your choice. It should be manageable and fun!

    In my opinion you should do what ever is easiest and most fun for you. Hugs

    Do what you like. You shouldn’t pressure yourself.

      Thanks Goldfish. :-) I’m my worse enemy sometimes.

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo.
    I give you credit for undertaking such a noble cause. I wish I had your courage and confidence..

      Thanks Hookster! I like doing NaNo, it’s crazy but in a good way.
