After taking the last few weeks off from my blog, I have come to a conclusion. I need to retire the blog.
I am finding that I have much more creative energy and time if I'm not worried about my next blog post. I have so little "free" time, I feel like I need to zero in on just a few uses of that time.
I am certainly happy that I started this blog as I was just getting to know the writing community. It helped me get to know folks quickly. And I've made some great friends! The challenge for me now will be to continue to visit all the great blogs I found along the way. So, thank you all for the welcome, the friendship, the advice, and the support. I hope I can pay it forward for all of you.
I will still be active on Twitter, so follow me there if you haven't already (@megankbickel). I'll see you all around cyberspace!
