I don’t know how many “regulars” I have out there in the inter-webs, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that blogging might be a little sparse during the next few…weeks…maybe? First of all, I need to dedicate a good amount of time to doing a project for my parents’ business, as well as some other work that desperately needs to get done. But also, and I tweeted this earlier today, it’s beginning to feel as though I’ve almost completely lost my blogging voice. Let’s just say the words aren’t coming to me as easily as they used to. I don’t know if it’s just your average, run-of-the-mill writer’s block, or what, but, it’s been a frustration for several months now and the more I try to force myself to write or at least comment on something, the more I get fed up with the whole thing. I did notice that next month will mark four years of (relatively constant) blogging for me, so I’m hoping this is just a bit of “blog fatigue” that will pass with time.
I wouldn’t necessarily call this a blog “break”, per se (though I do intend to cut Twitter out of my diet altogether during this time). I’m just going to step back and take a little more relaxed approach to blogging for a while, reminding myself that the world will not end if I do not post every day! I’ll also be spending more time nurturing a very stale and stagnant spiritual life, keeping in mind the advice of my spiritual director: “without regular time for prayer you risk becoming ‘just an activist’ – we should want to be saints first.” See my post: Sanctity, Prayer and Activism
Thanks for all your support! I hope you will be patient with me. I definitely do not want to give up on this thing entirely, but I don’t want to get completely burnt out on it, either.
P.S. I just noticed that BABIES! is available to rent on iTunes/Apple TV!! It will be out on DVD later this month. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so cute in my entire life. Watch it! You will not be disappointed.
