Why do I bother?

Why do I bother blogging these days?

I haven't written about anything really academic in a bit and no ones really interested in my life. I'm really not feeling as if I'm contributing anything, or getting anything back really. Just spam from trolls.

I think I'm taking a blogging break for a while. See you when I see you.

Just want to let you know that I am reading, even if I don't comment all that often.

It's important, though, to take breaks in blogging, as in all things. I'll be here when you get back.

And good luck with the sumptuary paper!

Thanks. :) I think I'm just letting this troll get to me a bit to much.

But a break always does one good.

I'm reading you, too, although I don't think I've ever left a comment - I should have, before now! I loved the Pachelbel vid from YouTube - and my cellist friend fell over laughing.

But hey - take a break, and I'll bet that you start itching to write pretty soon, and you'll feel that it's worthwhile!

What AW said - word for word.

Take care of yourself in the meantime, and don't let the trolls get you down!

It could be worse - you might not even have the Trolls ;-).

One (of many things) that keeps me from commenting is that I usually read blogs using bloglines, so I have to hop out of that to add comments. Another issue for me is that by the time I read something, everyone else has made most of the good/pithy comments.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

You'd think my skin would be a thick enough to deal with trolls at this point, but I guess I just let s/h/it get to me. One more stressful thing on top of a stressed week I guess.
