This Blog Is In Sleep Mode

It may be obvious that I do not put much effort into posting on this blog. Actually, it may not be, because I have, like, two followers. And one of them is me at my other blog. (Thanks, Lizzy!) I thought I was up to four or five at one point? I get very few hits. I follow like four other bloggers from this identity and I don't promote this blog at all. And yet, somehow, it has started to hurt my feelings that no one knows about this blog or reads my posts or thinks I'm a fabulous story teller or person generally. I could probably be relevant and funny on a consistent basis if I would be more personal and candid, but I guess I am unwilling to do that.

Due to the Facebook-ification I am experiencing related to this blog, I am going to take a break. Facebookism, as I'm sure you're aware, is the syndrome associated with feelings of inadequacy and jealousy when you read the juicy headlines of your friends' and half-friends' lives. Sure, I do it too. I post status updates that are little snippets of awesomeness that are designed to incite envy. I genuinely try not to do this sometimes, and instead post something that I am pondering or post something funny. Which is what this blog is supposed to be but instead it's like scrolling my news feed and learning that everyone is either on vacation or having another baby or getting backstage passes to the Daily Show (I made that up...are there backstage passes to the Daily Show? Because I would do anything to get backstage passes to the Daily Show.)

So, anyway, ciao for now. I hope to be back, sometime when I can feel not bad for not posting and not bad when I do as well. Good luck in career and family until then (and beyond)!
