I'm Leaving

I technically have already left my blog for almost two months now. I don't post anything. I don't link up with other blogs. I don't read enough books to have a review up every week and occasionally not even enough to have a review up every month.

The truth of the matter is, this blog is already pretty dead. 

So, I guess what I'm doing is making it dead-dead. 

I don't want to write a super long explanation because there really isn't one. Life got hectic and I got tired and that's about it. 

Would I keep blogging if I wasn't so busy? Maybe. I'm not sure. At this point, blogging is not something that I see myself doing for another year or two. I've already had this blog for four years (and I have the horrible first posts to prove it, hidden in my drafts file) and honestly, it was always meant to be something on the side, never something that I took extremely seriously. It was fun while it lasted, but now I'm ready for it to be done. 

Farewell, and seriously thank you to the people who took the time to comment and make my day brighter. You're the reason I stuck around as long as I did.

  1. I will really miss you, but I get it! I have been tempted to do the same.

    1. I'll miss you, too! I think I'm just not cut out for the blogger life.

    It's always sad to see a blog fade, but if you feel like its a chore, then it's probably the best thing. The first blog I made I was really tempted to abandon, but I'm glad I didn't because even now, years later, I get comments thanking me for writing an advice post about something. Its good to know it can have value to people, even the ones who don't comment. But sometimes I do wonder whether its worth my time. =/
    Glad you said 'it was fun while it lasted' though. For me, that's the most important part of blogging. Who knows? Maybe when the time is right you'll pick it up again someday. =] Good luck for the future, Tansie.

    1. Blogging has been a big part of my life for a long time-- I wasn't particularly active or anything, but just coming up with ideas and typing them out was pretty time consuming. The comments, like you said, are definitely what kept me blogging for the better part of the years that I did. Thanks so much for your comment-- it's nice to know a lot of other people have struggled with the same decision. I'll miss the blogging community, but, like you said, I might pick it up again in the future. :)
