I began this blog in December 2013, and now after 282 posts and over 615,000 page views, I have decided to take a break from blogging. The blog will remain live, but I am taking a break from posting. I am not "blogged" out per se, because I actually have about 20 future blog posts in one kind of draft form or another that I have yet to publish. So it is not that I feel like I do not have anything to say or that the well has run dry in terms of blog post ideas.
Quite honestly, the reason is that I just do not feel the need to blog anything at the moment. It has been two months since I have last posted anything here. Granted the last two months have been adjusting to a life of self-quarantining, of social distancing, and of facilitating digital distance learning with my students, but now that life is starting to re-open to a post-quarantine world, I realize that during those two months, I did not miss blogging (and I certainly had the TIME to blog!).
So much like when I took time off from attending/presenting at conferences, I am going to take time off here from blogging. But much like how I returned back to attending conferences and presenting, I am certain that I will return again to blogging. Hopefully, it will not be a 18-month respite like it was for me with conferences. When I miss blogging, that is when I will know that I am ready to return.
So to the ten of you who faithfully read my blog - I thank you so much! I look forward to blogging again and sharing ideas with all of you in the future.
