Too Bad

Now You See Me (you can find her in my side bar) has decided to bow off blogging.  She is feeling that familiar feeling of being overwhelmed and not knowing what to write about.  I responded to her as follows:
"I've been overwhelmed by that feeling myself...several times...and each time i shut down my blog and had to start from scratch again.  I finally learned that I was expecting too much of myself.  Now I just blog when I have something to say and it works well.  I am enjoying it again.  I hope after a brief rest you will find your way back to us again."
however she has turned comments off.  It is sad to see a blogger go because they are feeling overwhelmed.

  1. I saw that she has decided to bow out and tried to leave a comment very similar to yours. Sadly the ability to comment has been removed.
    I hope that life treats her gently and she feels like coming back - in the fullness of time.

  2. A lot of people are dropping out of this venue. I agree with you, people put too much pressure on themselves to post. It's not that important, people should just post when the feel like it...this is not and should not feel like a job. I'm leaving her on my list as I expect she will be back.

    I try and post almost every day, not as a job, but as an exercise to keep my brain going...sort of like going to the gym.

  3. That is sad to see another blogger give up; I have no pressure about blogging, I post when the mood strikes and I have a topic.

  4. Over the years, most of my favorite blogs have disappeared. It feels like a loss every time. I hope enough of us keep going to make it feel rewarding on into the future!

  5. I think we all feel like that at times. These days I mostly only post once a week....and I feel that suits me. A couple or more years ago I had a break for a while...and then returned to the fold. :)

  6. It is always sad when a blogger who you have gotten to know decides to quit. I used to write more often, but found out that writing once or twice a month and reading other people’s posts on a regular basis worked best for me. Burnout happens to us all, but if you find the right balance, you can still stay in the game.

  7. I saw her goodbye post early this morning and tried to leave a comment, but was informed that only a member of the blog can leave a comment :( :(

  8. Sorry to hear your friend has left blogging. Perhaps she will return to it and perhaps she will just visit you all and comment and chat that way. There really is no need to put up posts of ones own. There are many people who just have a blog account to visit with other bloggers. Also, she might have a Google page that's which you can contact her on. My blogger connects with Google. Doesn't yours?

  9. Hi there. I'm proof that we do come back. I gave up about a year ago, but here I am again. Stopping by to say hello and glad to see you are still here.
