I’m taking a break

Posted: July 20, 2009 in blogosphere

for a while.  Can’t say exactly how long.  Been blogging about three times a week for over 2 years now.  And this whole Facebook and Twitter are taking over the world, blogging is growing obsolete, and if you’re not posting from your qwerty keyboard phone your a social geezer shift continues to weigh on me.  Therefore, it’s break time.

Talk to you again sometime in the not so distant or immediate future.

    I truly like reading your thoughts. You have a very unique and funny way of thinking and sharing. I’ll keep checking back. Until then,

    be well, my friend.

    crap. One less thing to distract me from work…

    Laaaaaaaaaaaaame. Always not you were a quitter.

    you should keep blogging. most bloggers have moved to facebook and twitter because they have nothing to say or they have no knack for saying it. you have both. the best reason to keep blogging is to work thru your boatload of baggage to discover God’s path for you back to ministry.

    thanks everyone, you’re very encouraging. please note – ultimately, i do not wish to quit blogging. i’ve enjoyed it. but i’ve somehow felt like this blog (title, content, format, etc) has reached its impact pinnacle, maxed out its readership, and possibly lost its focus.

    I see the massive amount of interaction on Facebook – especially in the overflow of feedback and comments – and see none of that on this or ANY blog, for that matter. Maybe people are reading blogs, but they certainly are not interacting with them. I guess I’m wanting to rethink how, when, where, and why to blog.

    The lack of a home computer has contributed as well, as I’ve only blogged while at work, and work has gotten increasingly busy and stressful, leaving less time for blogging….or, more importantly, less time to give meaningful thought to my words as I type them. I don’t want to post ignorant word fillers just to stay active in blogging…but I also don’t want to go 2 weeks between every post.

    Anyways, lots to think about. Thanks again, friends!

    Jason, I am sorry to hear this as well. I agree with “anonymous” in that people that move to twitter and facebook have nothing to say, and kind of feel like that is why I have gone that route as of lately as well. I hate not updating my blog, but am glad to check back and always see a new post here.

    If you start tweeting I will follow you. (The fact that I just typed those words hurts me to my core). I always thought that I would only make fun of twitter…never, never would I use it…
