{January 17, 2012}   Sometimes you got to take…

A blogging hiatus. I didn’t expect to take one so soon after posting about it being so hard to NOT blog, but nevertheless, I did. The past two days I haven’t blogged due to just plain NOT feeling up to it and I could have posted a little tiny bit of nonsense just to make myself not feel guilty, BUT I decided against it. I would rather miss a day or two, if need be, then take up a post with “filler” material just to keep away the guilty feelings.

The truth is, I DO feel guilty for missing two days. At the same time, I think I deserved to take a short hiatus, just as everyone deserves to now and then. The idea of missing today too, just made me feel as if I was giving up on my blog, though. And that’s the last thing I want. So I decided to get myself to the computer and blog today!

It seems strange to switch to a completely different topic now, so I will just stay with the topic of my blog. I’m keeping WWW Wednesdays and Five Question Fridays because I love doing those, but should I keep my Mirthful Monday? And if I do, should I change anything about it? I love having different themes and sharing jokes, cartoons, quotes, etc. that I find to fit the themes, but I wonder lately if I should add some diversity. Say, for instance, maybe share a personal story that made me happy or a story I read somewhere that made me happy? Share GOOD news from the world instead of the bad news that seems to fill the media more and more these days? And have the jokes and quotes every once in awhile too?

Or should I make Mirthful Monday a shared thing where I have a different topic or theme every week and everyone that chooses to join in has to find something happy to share that matches that topic? What do my followers think? I would love to hear some feedback.

For now, I will leave this post with those thoughts in mind.

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
