Blogging Blues

Has anyone else noticed how many regular bloggers are hanging up their keyboards lately? So many folks I used to check out regularly have grown bored with blogging or just decided it doesn't do for them what it used to. One lady said she needed an intervention because she was obsession over her blog. So, she said she'd cool it for a while - only post occasionally. The more I read about blogger fatigue, blogger overload and blogger boredom, the more I realized I too was becoming kind of over the whole thing. Don't get me wrong, I get caught up in everyone's trials and tribulations - an engagement here, a pregnancy there, but I started adding up all the time I was spending reading and writing in blogs and all the writing time I was missing. And yes - it's one of my biggest procrastination devices after email!
So, I'm going on a short hiatus. I want to see if I raise my productivity. I have to prepare a workshop for my next RWA meeting, do a critiques of partner's work and spend time with the family - oh yeah - and work on my WIP.
What about you? Are you tiring of blogging or are you still full-throttle?

Not tired yet. I've only been at it since February. No fatigue. In fact I've become very energized by it.

Nope, but I've only started really...I'm hoping not to become addicted

Maybe it's just a slump for me. Glad to know lots of folks still have "the bug!"

I was in a slump a while ago until I just chilled out and realized I didn't have to blog every day. Since limiting my blog time, I appreciate it more.

I haven't blogged as much latley but its because I've been sick and not spending as much time online.

I'm not tired but I definately spend WAY too much time reading blogs. So I've made a real effort to cut back. It's upped my productivity. But I miss the interaction!

Hurry back! Best way to get geared up for Saturday is to languish away on the Internet!
