Decisions, decisions...


For the past month or two, I have been contemplating whether or not to continue with this blog. It seems to have run its course, and I don't know if I want to keep up the effort involved in maintaining a blog. I haven't even been making my usual blogging rounds for a month now, as I find myself much busier these days than I was before we moved. Part of it has to do with the long work days - I am stationed at a very busy ambulance station that does 15,000 calls a year, and there is no opportunity to go on the internet in between calls like at my previous station. When I work, I am gone from home for fourteen hours a day, and my two blogging partners are not active in posting here. (You know, that sounds attractive to me, being a guest contributor on someone else's blog, where you don't have to commit to posting every day!)

I may let Salve Regina rest for awhile - I've been leaning this way for quite some time now. I have made a great deal of good internet friends through blogging, and I appreciate your friendship and support. I'll probably still make the rounds of my favourite blogs, just less frequently, but I'll pop in on occasion to see what's happening in the Catholic blogosphere.

I have noticed how your blogging has slowed down. I will miss your posts. I hope I still see you at my blog every so often.

If you want a blog to post on occasionally, I would be happy to have you post on mine.

Man, I'd sure hate to lose you. Is this a permanent departure?

I am feeling the desire/need to throw in the towel as well. I'm still debating. Does blogging lead me to God? Does it lead others to God? Does it serve and give glory to God?

Shirley said...

Terry, reading blogs has given me a lot of information and has helped me understand my faith -especially this blog. So yes, it can be serving God to blog. We will miss you, sis! Come on over to our blog whenever you want!

i have invited my sister, pmg to come on over to blog at our blog. it could be a family blog!! awesome idea! you can be a guest contributor! awesome idea! but hey, i understand. i know how busy you are. its hard to juggle a career and then do internet blogging on top of it. you are like frank, you work almost non stop. he doesn't have time to do much commenting on DM. he is just too busy! if you want to hang up the gloves sis, and want the occasional post, come on over and we'll have a family blog:)

In The Knights Of Columbus, I took a hiatus by transferring to a certain council:

It was a worthwhile period of rest for me as I learned a lot;

Then, I returned to my Old Council, refreshed & raring to go;

& I'll keep up the Catholic End on my Baseball Blog, now that the Season has ended;

Ec 3:1. All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven.

The demands of moving an a new job are understandably high; meet the demands, and post when you can; we will not loose you unless Satan gains you (or us), so let us all pray the Lord for the grace and strength to go the distance, come what may.

I like Divine Mercy's idea!

AquinaSavio said...

Aww...I will miss your posts, PG. But I can totally understand. I've only maintained my blog for 5 months, and I've needed breaks from it. I really like the idea of having the three of you on Divine Mercy. :-D We have to think of some names, though:

The Trad Trio?

Saintly Sisters?

Godly Girls?

Canada's Catholic Cadre?

:-)

Karin said...

AHHH...

What are you talking about????
You cant leave Blog-Land...you'll be missed greatly!
But you know PG i do understand where your coming from!!!

uncle jim said...

and i was just getting to know you - i recall awhile back when i read you were moving, and i wondered then if that would interupt.

well, one thing i do know is that friends is always friends no matter where they may be. you'll be praying sometime and one of us will pop to mind [i hope].

that will just be a sign you're being thought of. gee, i'm gonna miss popping i here now and then.

An apostolate is like love: sometimes you have to persevere even without feeling like it!

Vir Speluncae Catholicus said...
