I guess I've already started my sabbatical, however I should at least post something so you all aren't left wondering.
It's summer and I have a ton of things on my to do list before I resume classes again in the fall. I hate that my blogging is the thing that is being (and has been since December) sacrificed, but of all the things on my plate, this is the most 'optional' and does take up quite a bit of time.
I do still love writing and blogging, but each post (of stubstance) can take anywhere from 2-4 hours to research, write, edit, re-write, etc. Not to mention, the 2 hours a day I've spent reading other's blogs. That's a lot of time that, right now, I need to devote to house projects and other things. I will still keep up with reading blogs, although, quite possibly, at a reduced level. I know that each and everyone one of my fellow bloggers puts in a lot of time and effort to post for us that read them as well as staying active in the blogging community and I truely appreciate all that...especially knowing the time committment it takes.
I am still raiding and we have been making excellent progress in T6 content and I'm even tanking more than I was in T5 content. I still enjoy WoW and my guild (we've been expanding) and I do not have any plans to quit...which is why something has to be reduce (blogging).
I'm sure I'll be back at some point. I just don't have a time frame of when that will be. I appreciate you all taking the time to read my blog over the last year as well as those who have linked me in their blog rolls. I truely hate having to cut back in this area and will return when I can.
