I've decided that I will be pushing this blog to seven. I'm promising myself (and this blog) right here right now that there will be a seventh blogoversary. It may be my last but it will happen.
We made it to seven!
And as I decided last year it will be my last.
I'm pretty sure this isn't what I had in mind when I wrote that two years ago. I probably meant that at some point this year I was going to decide that it was time to try something else.
Or maybe I was being prophetic and foresaw a big change coming this year that would keep me from blogging as much.
Hey it can happen.
That's something I've learned from watching other blogs; you never know what's going to hit you. I say from watching other blogs because in seven years I've yet to be "hit by life."
I was going to say it's time for me to let myself get hit, but that just sounds so weird.
You know what I meant.
It's time to try new things. To spend a little less time in front of my computer (I already do it enough with my career choice anyway.) To not worry about deadlines (again another luxury that comes with career choice.)
Time to let the only consistent part of my twenties go.
Last year I made a two year plan, apparently I didn't write it down or I've since, yet again, changed my mind. I don't know what's coming; as of now I only have my final post to write up and then that will be it for me here. I truly don't know what happens next.
Which is why I need to do it.
I'm not ending the blog because it's become too much work (never) or because I have too much going on to focus on it (as I said above, I don't) or because I've lost my interest in it. I just simply think it's time.
As much as I love the idea that it could have gone on for many more years, I know that at some point we'd be doing this. If I were lucky, I knew I never wanted to be a blogger that just disappeared, my final post showing no indication that that was my plan.
When I made the announcement last year I kept telling myself that I could change my mind, or that maybe I could make it a break and come back if I wanted to but now that I'm here, I know that it's time to say goodbye.
Here's to one more week.
