BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS »

Drum roll, please...

Well, I blog a lot. If you are going to call yourself a "blogger," you need to be about the business of posting regularly. And I do. I put a lot of thought, effort and time into my more lengthier posts--but even if its short, I only post something if its worth you reading or watching.

I am incredibly grateful for all of you that read my blog--I typically have several hundred hits a week comprised of anywhere from 75-125 individuals. (I have my blog monitored by SiteMeter.) I am even more grateful for most of you that post comments on here--I thoroughly appreciate the conversation. Regardless of whether or not I agree with comments, I am always glad that the discussion goes on.

However, for several reasons, I'm going to take a break from blogging. I will continue to read the blogs that I normally do and I won't turn comments off on my own blog--I just won't be writing any new posts or comments for a while. I don't know how long. Maybe a week. Maybe a month. Maybe two months. Long story short, I'm taking some time off from it all.

Please, by all means, read some of my older posts if you haven't before. I've written on a lot of fun (and a lot of not-so-fun) stuff. But either way, there's a year and a half's worth of posts to read if you'd like.

Here's me, sadly waving goodbye:



I'll talk to you later...

You would...I can't believe you think this a good idea...I mean seriously you write a blog post on the fact that you are gonna take a break. What gives you the audacity to think that any of the rest of us are gonna buy into this idea that you are gonna keep reading but not write. Who do you think you are...I mean its obvious your out for trouble here...

Fine you go...Get out! Stop...see if I care....you'll see...you'll be back...you'll come crawling back...you just wait...I got all the time in the world....a week, two weeks, two months...Yeah, we'll see about that Mr......

Your Brother,
Sheffield................:)

I can't believe it! What am I gonna do at work now!! Actually work?! How can you do this to your loyal readers? Your "John McCan't" was the best and most accurate observations I've read. And I've even quoted you to others!! Go ahead, take a break, see if I care....you didn't know I was here every day anyway....sheeeeeeeesh......

I will miss you ;(

Nope, I can't believe I said that. I don't know you, you don't know me. I won't miss your ramblings....sheeeeeeesh......

(p.s. Yes, I will.)

This is addressed to "Jason". Why would you believe that the "brilliant" John David would need to write his own comment????

He did not!! It was me. Who followers many of the great bloggers such as John David and even you, too, Jason! (Does that make me a blogeur?)
