I’ve been putting off writing this post, even though it’s been on my mind for a little while. Remember that I said here that this blog is here to stay? Well…I’ve changed my mind and decided to stop blogging for the time being.
I’ve been thinking lately how in saying ‘yes’ to one thing, we are by implication also saying ‘no’ to other things. And while there is a big part of me that wants to keep blogging because I love it, there are just too many other things in my life that need my ‘yes’ more right now.
A part of me would like to just let this blog be something I do when I find the time, but I’ve realized that doesn’t really work for me. The truth is that I am always thinking of blog posts to write and rarely have a shortage of ideas and all those unwritten blog posts are piling up in my head…but it takes me a while to write each blog post and that’s time that I need to be doing other things right now.
As much as I will miss blogging itself, I will miss being part of the blogging community even more. Thank you, each of you who has ever read one of my posts and especially those of you who have followed over time. You have been so encouraging, inspiring and generous and I’ve really come to consider some of you as friends.
I hope I’ll be blogging again in the future, but I have no idea when that will be. I do know that if that happens, I’ll start a new blog. I will leave Dutch.British.Love up so the archives aren’t going anywhere. I’ve enjoyed having this little place on the internet so much.
Thanks for letting me share bits and pieces of my life with you.
All the best!
