Pardon Me #350

My time on WordPress has become excessive and addictive. While I have backed off somewhat over the past few weeks, it has not been enough. So it’s high time for me to take a sabbatical on posting. As I have a busy personal calendar over the next few months, this may be a good spring board for me to take a back seat on posting while decreasing my reading as well. 

Since New Year’s I have posted daily on this site, some days multiple posts; probably too much for some. During this time my addiction to approvals and comments has peaked and ebbed some. While I have taken measures to step back, I have continued to post daily and I have become too concerned about stats and who likes what; less concerned about writing to write.

In striving to keep up with The Jonses and not miss others’ posts, I have been wearing myself out. So many of you have such intriguing words to share that I cannot seem to stop myself. Meanwhile, I have allowed too many paper books to gather dust.

I also recently joked with a good friend that I needed to do a 12-step program for withdrawal from WP! In telling him about a professional certification test for which I would like to sit, I acknowledged that the time I currently spend on WP would prevent my being able to study for it (and it’s an expensive test!).

For these reasons, I am going to take a step back from WP. It’s time for me to really reflect and do some deeper introspection, as well as get over this attention and approval addiction (wish me luck!). I hope to check in on the reader from time to time.

So please Pardon Me, while I rest from WordPress and burst into flames. Trust me, I will come back brighter than before. I always do.

Namaste

  2. I feel you! Trying to write is one thing, keeping up with everyone else is a FT job, and I don’t have the time. Then I feel badly for not commenting on everything else going on around me. Be well, and we’ll all be here, obsessively creating (or not) while you’re gone. Xoxo sweetie
