I have decided to, for a while at least and maybe forever, stop blogging.
You may wonder why someone who has faithfully blogged for eight years and twenty-three days would suddenly decide to give up on the craft. I’m not sure if I can explain, or if I even want to explain. But I will try, briefly.
I always valued transparency, honesty, openness, and realness, and thought I had nothing to hide. I wanted my blog to be a reflection of that. However, I underestimated the power I was giving the world to hurt me.
Also, I am growing increasingly uncomfortable with the way I have acquired a sort of “fan base” on my blog. I want to be a blessing to people by my life, and by letting Christ shine through me. But I don’t ever want to feel like I’m the important one with the story to tell, and you’re the fan who needs to listen.
My blog makes me feel that way.
I want to be the one listening. I want to hear your story.
That is why I have decided to stop blogging. Because….
I need a holiday. A very long holiday. And I don’t expect I shall return. In fact, I mean not to.
