I've been taking a bit of a bloggy hiatus. Although it felt weird at first to not be blogging every day/week, it's actually become pretty freeing. I've been able to spend more time with family, focus more at work, and the nights I would have stayed up late to write on my own site or keep up on other blogs, I've been going to bed earlier. All of those are pluses for me, sitting squarely in the "good for my health" column.
I do miss connecting with this community in the ways I used to. I miss knowing what my friends are up to. I miss the random connections and uplifting camaraderie. I miss being up-to-date on every FDA filing and approval; every piece of diabetes legislation; every #dsma conversation. I miss the impromptu, softly spoken calls to action that morphed into something much bigger. I miss you guys, period.
I don't think I'll be returning to my former participation level; at least not soon. I'm juggling a lot of responsibilities at the moment, and this part of my life is where I can "opt out" for a while. I want to especially blog during these next six months, but we'll see what time and energy allows.
Why the next six months?
Baby Vlasnik #2 is due in February.
