To Blog or Not To Blog

Today I've got 2 thoughts weighing on my brain.

The first of which is, HOLY CRAP I LEAVE FOR MEXICO TOMORROW! It hadn't really hit me til now, I'd say things like "Oh you guys want to do (insert activity) next week?" & someone would have to remind me I wouldn't be here. But I think the cumulative excitement that I should have been feeling for months has hit me all at once because I'm literally twitchy with anticipation. This time tomorrow I'll be in Mexico City waiting to catch the last of my 3 flights...and then I'll get to see my old friends, the other half of my church family, the part of me that never feels complete until I'm eating black beans 3x a day.

The other thing that I can't shake from my brain is the fact that I've been a sub-par blogger for an entire month now. An it irks me. I've actually been thinking about giving it up if I can't carve out the time needed to engage the way I want. When I'm only writing one a week, not interacting with the other bloggers I love, and when my reader hits the triple digits of blogs unread... it just feels defeating. But when I mentioned the possibility of stopping I got more of a protest than expected from friends.

So here's the deal... I'm going to take my time in Mexico to mull it over. And in the meantime it would really help me out if you guys could take the time fill out a little survey. And please be HONEST, you will not hurt my feelings with negative responses. I'm just looking for clarity... should I give up, man-up, or just tweak my routine? And hopefully your answers will help me decide that.

Thank you SO MUCH in advance for taking the time for this. And I'll talk to you again in one week when I return from the other side of the border!!

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.


  1. Be careful and enjoy your trip. You'll know what the right answer is after some true time off.

  2. Enjoy your trip!! And believe me, I know how you feel about the blogging topic. Can't wait to hear about all your adventures! You better keep in touch in with me even if you decide to quit!

  3. Well, I think you should keep blogging. But don't if you don't feel like it. But do it do feel like it. So basically, I am approving the decision for you to decide what you'd like to do. And then do that.

  4. So THAT'S why you were in Houston! I just connected the dots. For my part, I don't want your blog to go away, but understand where you are coming from if you decide not to keep on.
