Taking a Little Break

Why do bloggers always feel the need to make a post about taking some time off from blogging?

I don't know, but that's exactly what I'm doing now. I need to get some PopCultureShock affairs in order, not to mention some real world concerns that need to be addressed, and as much as it pains my ego to think of the hit my little SiteMeter is going to take, I'll be taking a break from this blog for at least a week or so. Also need to catch up on reading, respond to a ton of emails, and, the big one, reassess my involvement in all thing comics-related.

Hopefully when I return, it'll be in a better mood. Because Jason's right, when it comes right down to it, it is just comics, though I take comics rather seriously -- too much so, perhaps? -- so it's a qualified "just".

I agree, I obviously take comics seriously as well - I mean, I want to (and do) make them - but sometimes a brother needs to take a deep breath and remember we're talking about an industry built on 5-cent newsprint comics featuring a guy in red underwear.

They're suppossed to be fun, you know?

'Cause we're a community. I always planned to just stop posting when the time came - no announcement ... but it's like leaving the party without saying goodbye, innit?

And it's just blogging. There's no schedule, and we're all just doing it for the love of it ... if you're feeling burnt, there's no point forcing it.

I'll look forward to a rested, recharged Guy.

And because the effort to make a post like this is far less than the effort it would take to respond to a bunch of, "What happened, are you okay?" emails.

Recharge. Get caught up. Come back. We'll be waiting for you.
