A Little Blogcation

Oooh, I've been a little remiss in posting here, and in visiting blogs. Life has trumped. I realized pretty much from the beginning that this blogging business was surprisingly time-consuming. What I didn't realize was how much time would open up if I stayed off the boards/blogs for even a little-bitty week, as my online time was never out of control. Not that my hiatus was planned; it just sort of happened.

And life continues to happen. As a result, I'm extending this blogcation to at least April 1. We will be off to the land of No Internet Access for five days in the interim, where we will recharge and refresh by getting a whole new life, at least for that brief time. Beyond that . . . I hope to have something to say. "See" you all in a bit. :)

Enjoy the time to yourself!

I have been considering something of a blogcation myself lately. It really is time consuming, and when you have kids (or other people seriously depending on you), it can get difficult.

I wish I could I do a blogcation but I'm addicted I tell you...addicted!

Enjoy your blogcation!

I always wonder how much time blogging takes, but I write them quickly usually while the kids are here (and I can't write write then)

I think the connection with other writers makes the time worthwhile, but maybe if you have real life writing friends, it would be different.

Not sure on this one at all...

Anyway, have a great blogcation!

Almost every single time I post something, I tell myself that I'm going to take a vacation from blogging. Then something happens and I'm concocting a post in my mind -- and I realize that I am addicted -- not necessarily to writing, but to the illusion of a readership, the idea that people are paying attention to what I write. (So different from real life, and what happens in the classroom...) And, as Anne says, connecting with other writers means a great deal -- it gives me so much hope and confidence.

Enjoy your time off -- we'll be back!

Dear Marcia,

Would you mind letting your readers know about the December issue of our twice-yearly journal 'CHRISTVS REGNAT', which tries to bring something 'new' to the field of thought and study of Catholic heritage, biography, history, music, spirituality and liturgy here in Ireland - especially in the light of Pope Benedict XVI's 'Summorum Pontificum':

It would also be very kind of you of you could link/follow/blogroll our blog:

Please pray for me!

God bless you!
