To Blog or not to Blog . . .

To blog, or not to blog. That is the question.
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer one's slings and arrows in private,
Or to take one's arms against a sea of troubles,
And by sharing, feel less alone . . .

Oh my blog, how I've missed you of late, my life filled with other parts of the writing life, teaching and meetings and emails - oh, so many emails!

Some say that blogs have peaked - (or is it piqued?)

Yet I want to thank you for being a place where I can organize my thoughts, and where I can have a meeting of the minds with others. But we need to have some boundaries, you and I. Internet traffic has become very congested and if I am overwhelmed, others must feel the same way.

So I will blog on Mondays. (Yes, I know that it is Tuesday dear blog, but yesterday I led five workshops! Okay, so I'll write Sunday night. Happy?)  Therefore you, dear readers, hopefully won't become overwhelmed with moi and run away. So yes, I will still be baring my soul in the same fun-loving way, and I'll try not to suffer my slings and arrows alone, but rather write about them to give them some perspective.

And I reserve the right to blog more if I want to!!!!

  3. Good choice. I've also cut down on how many blog posts I do. It's better to have fewer good ones, I think. Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning in blogs when I open up my email in the morning...
    Looking forward to your thoughts on Mondays!

  9. And here's the irony -- if you had posted on a Monday prior to this one (April 23rd), you would have honored the birthday of the Bard himself. But you knew that -- right?

    1. I spaced the Bard's birthday this year!? Man I have been busy. He was nudging me then, wasn't he?

  10. I know there is a set of blog "rules" somewhere and frequent posting is one of them that I violate flagrantly on a regular basis; who knows what others I ignore? Awash in email, caught by demands of a 40+ hr per week job, the lure of the books on the coffee table, and a habit of dropping everything when a loved one calls or drops by so as to give them my full attention, not to mention (yet I am) housekeeping (such as it is). Well, there you have it, posting once a month is my ambitious goal (not always met!). I admire your once a week (reserve the right to blog more)stance!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello Connie! The "rules" are always changing, aren't they? But I have been feeling overwhelmed by everything and then there's so much I want to read! I really appreciate you taking the time to read my words. Thank you!
