Hiatus

So...things this past weekend were interesting. For reasons I won't share here I need to step away and rethink this whole blog thing.

Originally the idea of sharing stories I had with the world was appealing. I liked making people laugh. It morphed into a blog about my relationship and has morphed again since then. Now, all this sharing has come to bite me in the ass.

The idea of entirely stepping away is hard. I use this as my outlet and feel I have come to make a few friends through this incredibly unlikely medium. But, with the recent turn of events, it's an outlet I can't afford. So I am stepping away. Figuring things out. For at least a week. It's during that time I will clear my head of all the thoughts someone else shoved in there, unwanted and unasked for. Hopefully, I can do this. And when and if I return? Yeah, it will be a new me. One who is a lot more jaded, a lot more cynical and a lot less willing to share the personal details of my life.

For those out there who supported me, I thank you sincerely. I hope that you will continue to stay in touch, you have the email address. For those of you who came here solely to try and bring me down, and you know who you are, I just want to let you know, you didn't succeed. You have no power over my life. Period. Just know that. Sorry to leave you all guessing what the mysterious circumstances of my rapid departure is, all I can say is there are ugly and vicious people out there, and they have brought themselves into my life.

So for now, kids, I bid you adieu.

Hey, I've really enjoyed reading your stories and following along, although I suppose I would be considered a lurker. I only happened on your blog a couple months ago, but I think it's great and you're doing great, don't let stupid people bring you down.

Sometimes it's better just to cut out the detrius though, I completely understand. I've completely dropped some people that I finally realized were just making me crazy and although it's hard and it hurts and I can't say you'll never look back it's SO much better for you.

Anyway, I hope you come back, but I too understand if you do not.

I've been reading this blog for months, and will miss it if you stop posting, but do what you need to do. Take care of yourself and all that.

I stumbled upon your blog just after I moved to the East Coast from the West Coast. I left the comment about putting into words what it's like to have loved and lost. I didn't know anybody out here, so needless to say it was hard. But after reading your stories, I gave it the old college try and decided to get out and mix it up and it has made my time here much more enjoyable.

I am sorry you have been subjected to abuse from stupid people. I hope they don't win and you keep writing. However, if you stop, I understand that's what you need to do. Your stories are heart warming and funny and I enjoyed them and hope you will continue. If you don't, good luck and god's speed.

Sorry to hear that you're thinking about calling the blog quits, though I can hardly blame you for wanting to. I really enjoyed it while it lasted, but you need to put your own life ahead of us faceless readers. And if writing about your life does positive things for you, I hope you'll continue with a friends-only or diary type format so you can avoid all the ridiculous haters and loss of privacy. I hope your plans for the future work out how you want them to (and that you'll resist the temptation to not use suntan lotion during your de-paleing mission).

i hate that one idiot is going to ruin your blog for the rest of us....and of course, for you. do what you have to, and we'll be patiently waiting for your return :)

or, you could do what i do and have a private blog where you can only allow certain people to read and comment. that way, you dont get all the obnoxious 'anonymous' comments.

best of luck....hope everything works out for you.

I'm sad that you're considering not continuing your blog, but it, as most things, at some point has to end. If this is the best point and way for you to end it, I wish you enough. Enough to stay happy, enough to accomplish your goals, and enough to be fulfilled. I hope that you will continue to write, but if you don't, good luck! I've been reading for close to a year and your stories are expressed in a way that makes me laugh and also allows me to feel what you're feeling. I wish I had the ability to express myself the way you do. Keep on keepin on.

I hope the break is giving you the space you need to figure this all out.

Until then, I'll keep checking and hoping...
