Dear Reader, concerning myself


Lately things have become more demanding than I can handle. I'm overwhelmed from a variety of activities.

In addition to my regular work I do:

* A distance study.

* Voluntary work.

* I blog, English &German.

* Speaking Training.

* Various other things.


Therefore I decided to cut down on blogging a bit and will post especially at the weekends.

True to the motto that less is more I would like thus to preserve my joy of blogging. ..........

The Fearless Blog said...

I completely understand. As soon as fall or spring term begins, I can't blog as much as I do over the summer and so many of my readers begin to wonder if I am OK. I refuse to blog-read or write- unless I "want to" and that's the bottom line. If anything I do becomes cumbersome and unpleasant then I will cease to enjoy it and therefore soon retreat. A "recession" is sometimes a welcomed necessity.

Take care...

Now, I'm sad..lol...but if this will make you happy, then so be it! Perhaps I can say, we are in the same boat.

I just came from a two-day national seminar, and today I had to rush paper work to meet deadlines at then office, and still, next week I will be back to the the real toxic responsiblity.

But I enjoy, coming home and visiting my blogs. Fearless blog is right, if you don't enjoy what you do, then what's the use of doing it.

Good luck with you work and I know all of us will still be here as often as we can.

Take care and God bless.

I completely understand your situation. I can not blog as much as some do also. We have to prioritize our schedule and what's important somehow.

It's good for you to give a heads up about your absence. This way your loysl readers know that your absence is not due to health issues or worst, death. You're a very conscientious person.

BTW, the photo of the planet Saturn is awesome.

Does it not defeat the purpose to have expectations of oneself when doing something you love... blogging without obligation... be free and enjoy this pastime ... I'll be around... have a terrific week

Hi there Ray - it's funny how many people in my circle are talking about cutting down their blogging activites, because it has all become "too much", and they want to be able to keep going.

I decided quite early on that I would not be able to sustain my blog if I posted more than once a week.

I'm actually glad you are cutting down, because I really like your posts, but I could not keep up with them when you did so many.

Cheers!
