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.
