Going Dark… For a While 6

Hey all,

I’ve been overwhelmed with too many projects, tasks, ideas, and needs for myself and my family for about a month now. That’s resulted me in going dark in a few different venues. I just hit my RSS reader where I had 100+ RPG-related articles to read. With great sadness, I had to scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Mark All Read.”

I need to learn to stop volunteering for tasks and projects. I need to learn to say “no” to certain things.

Until I build up those skills, I have commitments outside RavenousRPG to fulfill. There are quite a few things I’m cutting out of my life. Some of them are temporary. Some them are permanent.

This blog is one of those things I’m “going dark” on.

Will I return? I don’t know just yet. I need to see how things evolve in my life between now and several months from now. I’ll know by the end of April for sure, maybe sooner.

Thanks to everyone out there that’s read and supported me. I feel like complete shit-beast for letting everyone down, but it’s gotta be done for now.

If you don’t mind, please leave the blog in your RSS feeds. You never know when I’m going to come out of the darkness.

I hope everyone stays well and happy while I’m stepping away from RPG blogging for a while.

    It’s understandable. Sometimes you have to step back and have a bit of a balance. Looking forward to when you come back.

    I’ll keep you in my blog roll. When you’re back, I’ll be here to read.

    Stayed quiet until about half-way through the likely hiatus – at least until the announcement, whatever you decide. I miss the feedback and the encouragement that it gave, but never so badly that I would encourage you to let any other part of your life get out of control. As John Arcadian said above, sometimes you need to take a step back and rebalance your priorities. If this site resumes being one of them, that’s great; if not, be sure that everyone whose articles you’ve recommended over the years has nothing but good wishes to send in your direction.

      Thanks, Mike! I appreciate the encouragement you’ve given me as well. Life is returning to a bit more of a “normal” for me. At least, as normal as I can get it. I’m starting to miss doing my links/comments, but I realize life won’t quite allow me to get back into the swing of things just yet.
