Taking a break.

Hey guys. 
I’m taking a break from blogging for a while. 
I don’t know when I will be back at the moment but I need some time away from it all.
Thanks for everything so far though, you’ve all made my journey wonderful. 
Thank you.
Speak soon.

    Hi Faye. Wow. I have a lot to say to you but first, I’m glad to see that you are back and enjoyed your video because it was like being with a friend.
    Secondly–and I’m in the “this-is-your-mother-speaking” mode. Don’t pay attention to what the “experts” say about the length of your blog. I’m the mutha of all blogs long and rambling. It is that I simply cannot write a short blog. And neither can you. And that’s OK.
    Followers? Think of those who read and follow your blog more as your friends. I’ll never have a huge “following”–and that’s ok because the people who read my blog “get” me. They are my little neighborhood and my circle of friends. It’s important to engage and one thing I notice is that some bloggers who I actually follow have huge–large numbers of followers but never, ever engage with most of the people who comment. After much observation, it seems they only engage with a choice few. That bothers me but you know what? I still like reading their blogs *shrug*. It’s ok to not be the popular kid but it’s not ok to lose who you are.

    I’ve been fortunate to receive a few items gratis for reviews. And when I review I review honestly. And honesty is important. Be true to yourself. Write what tickles your fancy or what pisses you off.

    Listen–there are times when I feel like giving up because I need to focus on having a corporate career again–but the ageist companies here in the States won’t hire me due to my age. My blog is my outlet. My blog is my therapy. And the friends I’ve made through blogging keep me going. Yesterday one of the readers of my blog was in the area where I work (in retail hell) and she stopped by to meet me on her way back from visiting her daughter. I swear to god, when we met, I honestly felt like I met and old friend and it was instant “we’ve-been-friends-forever”dom! I was so happy and touched and moved that I couldn’t stop thinking about it all day! We have a lot in common. She gave me encouraging words. My engagement went from comments to real life. All because of a blog.

    So seriously. Don’t let the amount of words stop you. OK? Hugs, Kisses. And a love tap on your ass from me as I guide you back to your keyboard!
