I Just Can't Quit You!

After doing some blog-contemplation over the weekend, I came to the following conclusion: I'm not gonna quit, nor am I gonna take a posting-vacation. Yes, I know...go ahead and take a moment to do your happy dance.

There, done? Okay, then you're ready for the second part: What will have to give is the amount of reading and commenting I do. I know, I know, some of you are thinking, "Jess, I have barely enjoyed your cute profile pic and witty banter on my blog as of late anyway!"

And I feel guilty about this; seriously, I do. But to keep up with everyone who I'd like to keep up with is just impossible for me right now. I know this means that I might lose some of you as readers, and that's perfectly understandable (a lot about blogging is the reciprocal give-and-take commenting aspect), but it's what I gots to do. Yo.

So, I will try my best to pop in and visit everyone as I get time, but don't be offended if I no longer appear with regularity on your blogs. Hopefully, this summer I will have a little more time for blogging, but for now, I hope you keep reading here.

Well, since my commenting this weekend was spotty at best, you can guess my opinion LOL. I do a lot like what you are planning. I keep everyone on my reading list, but some times I just skim, sometimes I skip entirely, and sometimes you get to be the lucky blog that I write more than you want to hear. ;o)

Glad you are planning to stick around (I'd miss my Norah fix) and hope to hear from you occasionally on my blog, but totally understand needing to scale back.

So basically you're saying, 'Please keep reading me even though I won't be reading you.' We'll see. Cheers!

So happy to hear you are sticking with it! Even if I won't hear from you for a while! I look forward to reading your posts!

Marlene said...

Sounds like a good compromise to me! I'll continue to read.

I completely understand the scale back! I am glad to hear you are addicted to us too and can't leave!

Everyone goes through the "not enough time" feeling so I am sure faithful followers will keep enjoying your wit comment or no comments.

Great! Yours is always a fun read. Post when you can but don't feel you have to.

Go ahead. Quit us! Distance makes the heart grow fonder, and when you come back, you'll love us stronger

Adam said...

Glad to hear it. It seems that too many good blogs are stopping.

Katie A. said...

I totally understand! Glad you're not quitting all the way - you've invested a lot of time here. I'll wait for ya :) But, if you have free moments to post Nora pics, that is all we need :)

Aka Alice said...

You're a writer...how could you NOT write? (I count this as writing BTW).

Anyway, that pretty much sounds like what I've been doing recently :-). Glad you'll still be around.

Good call!

nicole said...

I've been blog stalking for a while, so I won't miss your comments on my blog. But I'm definitely glad you aren't stopping your own posting.

Have a nice break!

Yay. Glad to see you are staying.

Erin said...

Glad you decided to keep blogging. I greatly enjoy reading your posts and know that I am not the only one who goes through the same things with my little girl and running. But as a mom I totally understand the "not having time" to do much of anything other take care of your kiddo. So, hang in there it will get a little easier. :)

I'm glad to hear that you don't plan on giving up on blogland!

Abigail said...

I'm glad you're sticking with it on your own schedule.
I just found your blog within the last month and really enjoy it. I am a runner and a mom to be in 2 months. And...Nora is my top girl name. : )

I am also a soon-to-be mom, and a runner. I just found your blog and really enjoy it...I guess it's just a reminder that there are a lot of us out there who never comment, but appreciate what you do. So thanks.

heathermarie said...

well i'm happy to be able to still get updates from your blog, and as i'm not a blogger myself, i won't be missing the return comments in the least!
