A Time to Blog and a Time to Move On

Being an astute reader, you have by now probably noticed that I am not writing very often. Life has become much busier for me and in the free time I have, I feel much less inclined to sit down and compose my thoughts for a blog post. I began blogging as a way to process what was going on in my life. I have undergone a lot of transition in my life over the past couple years and writing for my blog provided an outlet for the changes going on inside me. It also served as an avenue to speak about issues that had become important to me, or which I had finally identified as being important to me. At one point I believed I had something important to say, a voice that needed to be added to the many others already clamoring for attention.

But I have come to recognize that blogging is not my passion. It doesn't burn in my bones. Although many thoughts swirl around in my mind, rarely do I feel so strongly about something that I feel an urgent need to commit it to writing and share it with the world. I certainly still feel strongly about many issues, but there are other writers who are more articulate, more qualified and more dedicated to promoting those issues. You can look at my list of blogs I follow and things that interest me to get a good idea of what these are. In fact, if you aren't already following these writers, I'd encourage you to do so. You won't be disappointed.

I will still post here occasionally, as something particular weighs on my mind or heart. Thank you to all who have commented and read my blog over the months. I appreciate your interaction. There may come a time when I feel compelled to actively blog again, but in the meantime, this blog shall become the repository for my occasional random reflections on issues of significance to me.
