Stepping Away From Blogging

It's been a few weeks since I last blogged, and during that time I have been thinking.

I think I am going to be stepping away from blogging for some time.

Initially, I created this blog to become something I could dump my thoughts too, write articles that could potentially help others, and just genuinely write things that I want to write.

However, after a couple years of writing for my personal blog, the returns I have personally received from it have diminished. Initially, when I started writing, I felt good about releasing an article. I felt good when I received an email with questions/discussions about one of my blog posts, and I felt good when I knew that some of my articles were helping people.

However, the last few months, my work and personal life has gotten busier, leaving less time where I want to sit down and write. Instead, I'd rather spend the little free time I have playing games I enjoy and decompressing.

With that being said, and with my 2024 goal of making things simpler, I'm going to be stepping away from blogging. On the 18th of this month, my Bear Blog subscription will be cancelled, which will likely cause to stop pointing to it.

If I decide to resubscribe in the future, you can definitely bet that I will continue to use the domain. But, until then, no more blog posts.

Thank you to all who have read my blog, and even subscribed to the RSS feed. That is definitely amazing. But, for the time being, I need to focus on myself, and figure out what I want to do. And blogging, right now, is not something that I want to do.

I hope that 2024 is a good year for everyone. And until next time...
