A New Journey

I've written this post about a thousand times in my head. I keep thinking that there has to be a better way, but the truth is that I just need to step away from blogging for a while. There are other priorities that I need to focus on, and the extra time just isn't there. I will leave the blog up, and hopefully get back to it someday soon!

You're still in my reader so when you return, I'll know!

I could probably use a break from my habit as well! :)

I'm keeping you on my BlogList, so as soon as you do come back your blog will pop right up to the top.

Focus where you need to!

I do know how you feel. I have three blogs, and I am cutting two of them at the end of this year.

Anyway, sorry to be a bit off-topic here, but I was contacted by a blogger(http://www.becomingdomestic.co.uk) who has you on her blog roll.

I'm an author and she wrote to thank me for writing a book I had written called 'A Place in My Country: In Search of a Rural Dream'.

This is what Becoming Domestic wrote in her email to me:

"I found your book in our local library and have enjoyed it tremendously.
Your story and those of your friends in Marsham is told so well. Before reading it I was concerned with leaving behind the final trappings of modern
life which may not be accessible in Cornwall but now realize I have so much to take their place.

I'm buying a copy of your book for my husband I know he'll enjoy it as much as me.

Thanks for writing it."

I hope you don't mind but I thought it might therefore appeal to you too, as she has you on her blogroll.

Here's the Amazon reference but it is published by Phoenix in paperback and was published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson last year.

If your blog has heaps of traffic I may even be able to get my publisher to send you a free copy if you tell them that you will review and blog about it, but they are rather mean when it comes to bloggers! (Why is beyond me.)

Anyway, there it is. Again, hope you don't object to this shameless self-promotion.

Kind regards,
Ian

no problems ... i could barely blog at all while on the mission field and it made me focus on other pursuits, and that was not bad at all.

Sorry to see you go - I know it's hard to keep up with the blogs.
