Dear Blogging Friends,
I have been a bad blogger. I haven't visited your sites as much as I used to, and I thought an explanation was in order.
A few months ago I realized I was sitting way too much. Between doing my own research on what I thought might be going on in our crazy world, reading your blog posts, watching news sites, reading copious amounts of books and material, I found myself sitting all day. It was not only bad for my body - it was unhealthy for my mind as well.
I decided I could do one of two things - I could be a good blogger and enjoy visiting all of you each day, or I could try to bring information to you - and let you decipher things for yourself. I knew full well that a successful blog is a give and take experience. The more you read and comment, the larger your readership. But I had to make a choice for my health. I simply could not read everything as it required sitting in one place all. day. long!
The choice I made was to be a place where people could go to get ideas and resources so that they could make their own informed decisions. I hope I have prevailed in that endeavor. Through Sitemeter I know many readers continue to stop by and I hope you will stay with me as we work on our new website.
Please know that I value your writing as much as my own. I have learned much from my blogging friends over the last couple of years. You are an inspired and creative group of people, and I fully expect to have time to visit you once again in the future. That is the beauty of a shared writing space - it will not be just my responsibility to keep relevant.
In the meantime, I am working on some interesting threads for our new website. It now has a launch date of June 11, 2012 at 1:30 PM, EDT. (I hope to find a countdown widget for the sidebar.) Trish, who is an Astrologist, did a chart to find the best time for launching, with all the planets aligned for a great outcome. In the meantime, I will continue to post here on occasion and hope you will all forgive me for not visiting you over the next couple of months as I'm also in the process of moving. (sigh)
Thank you all for stopping by and being a part of my life. You have enriched it immeasurably, and if you decide to move on I wish you only the very best in the future.
