Some Bad News

I'm noticing that my blog posts are becoming less and less frequent. I'm finding myself growing bored with the presidential race (which is why I have been avoiding it). Nonetheless I obsess over what I will post about or what people say about my posts.

My fewer posts bring fewer readers. I notice that I write for readers instead of for myself anymore. Positively, I am getting more and more comfortable being gay, even if I'm still not out to my family. As important as it has been, I am not sure that I need my online support now that I have the real life support of several close friends.

It may be time to hang up the hat. The cathartic benefits of blogging may have run its course. I hate to say it, but I might be done here.

Maybe one day I write a book instead. Less pressure that way.

You have all meant a lot to me.

Well, it's always sad to see a blogger go, but in the end, you're right, this is only for you. If you find yourself doing it for others, then perhaps it is time to move on. I know I'll be sad to see you go. I wish you luck in life, and keep those friends close!

Pink, be fabulous and fantastic as ever, and I'll be waiting for the book. No pressure you say?

Funny, I was just thinking about you. I was reading a piece on an all-Republican retirement community _ "You've put up with liberal Democrats across the aisle your whole career. Now that you're retired, why should you have to put up with them across the street?"

Well, I can't say this is a surprise, but you will be missed, regardless.

Good luck to you. Maybe you'll start blogging again after Hillary wins the election. I'll keep an eye out for you.
