enough for now!

I think it's time for a blogging break for me... I write what I think is a nice post about Advent, and all I get in response is a seemingly condescending "correction" of my post about what dates the actual Advent season begins on. This kinda ticked me off... correction no, it pisses me off. lol, I dont mind being corrected so much as I mind apparent smug attitude with which it's done and that's pretty much the only reply I get in nearly a week. "err no" whatever... happy belated birthday Lorna. I hope you enjoy being right!

The fact that a response to one of my posts really pisses me off is telling me that maybe it's time to give this blogging thing a rest. No one reads or comments on my blog anymore No one responds to comments I leave around the blogs I visit. So, I think I am putting way too much time and effort into something that is simply no longer bearing spiritual fruit for me. (besides the fact that it seems I've pretty much become uninteresting and irrelevant)

Yea, I know what you're thinking.... "this guy is too wrapped up in what others think of him, or whether or not others pay him much mind." You're right, I am and I do. I could probably use an alanon meeting. The way things have gone this week, I definitely do need something other than what I am getting right now.

I try to be positive and share stuff that I think is important and meaningful on here but I guess sometimes it just feels good to rant. I don't know if I will continue with this blogging bit or not really. It used to really provide some wonderful spiritual lift to my program but any more it just bums me out. I may can the whole thing, I may come back after awhile, hell I might just go start a new one I dunno. All I know is that I have had enough of feeling irrelevant and letting myself feel badly about it.

So, having beaten yet another spoon into an unrecognizeable twisted wreck against my high chair, I bid you all a fond farewell. Thanks for the wonderful times, have a blessed Christmas (I think that one is still on the 25th, I dunno ask Lorna she's up on these things...). And enjoy the fruits of your recovery!

God Bless!

I'm sorry that you feel this way. I'm sorry too that I my not visit very regularly or comment regularly, but I do read your posts regularly through Bloglines, where I have subscribed to your blog feed.

As you know, I am trying to cut back from the amount of time I spend on the computer and that means not writing posts, and not visiting blogs, so henceforth I intend to read the posts of my buddies in Bloglines and only comment sparingly.

This may not be great for my blog friends, but my own health is at risk here because I have become obsessed with blogging after nealry 4 years of it and I have to take steps to change this addiction of mine.

Also, just a thought, but perhaps Lorna didn't relise that she was being insensitive in her comment to you?

It may have come across a bit like a reprimand, yes, I agree, but perhaps it was an unintentional oversight on her part?

God Bless you and yours in this beautiful Advent season!

ranting on a blog is good for you :)

Yes, a rant a day keeps the bottle away. LOL

OK, Scott. I read you but don't often post a comment. But that's neither here nor there.
Go back to when you first began blogging and remind yourself why you began in the first place. Was it to see how many comments you could get daily? I doubt it.
So what changed?

Scott...I have learned LOADS of stuff from your blog.
I say...if we did not want anyone to read our "stuff" we would be writting it in a private journal. So I know what you mean.
Rest up, and come back :)
I'd miss you if you weren't here.

Take a break and come back strong man! I think we are all guilty of not leaving enough comments on blogs at times.
