On a Personal Note

On a personal note, I'm having a privacy issue here on the blog.

I've seen it happen to other people, but I guess I naively believed it would never happen to me.  After all, I write the most self centered me focused blog in the world.  Who's going to be bothered to bother with that type of person?

I write this way, not because I'm self centered, arguably, that's arguable, but because I don't usually choose to blog about other things.  It's a safe topic.  I can poke fun at me and never hurt anyone's feelings.  I can mock myself, and do with frequency, because I know where my soft limits & hard limits are where that is concerned.  My kids are sometimes a source of comic relief, my interactions with H are generally not blog worthy but sometimes I print them, and when you combine those two factors with the fact that my hobby is very self focused, you get this.

This is a place to connect to my running.

In effect, you people come here to read because you want to read about how awesome I am, how the running is going, and how I dream about cake and icing... or frosting.  Sometimes you come here to read about Stupid Red Headed Girl Who Sits in The Back of The Room, or my infamous Anatomy & Physiology classmates Huh & Wha..?.  But 99% of the comments I receive on this blog are in response to my galactically badass running.

That said, I may have to privatize my blog for a short time.  If I'm going to do that, I'm probably just going to go on a publishing hiatus.  In the bloggesphere that is like the kiss of death...

In the mean time, if you miss me too much, I continue to write for the RRRC publication, miles & minutes, and you can catch up on back issues through the Newsletter Link on their web page.

Not going anywhere my friend...
Take a hiatus. Take a break. Do what you need. That's not self-centered...that's smart. Thinking of you.

Do what you need to do. I'm a frequent reader, but rarely comment. I enjoy reading your running ramblings, but do what you need to, you'll be in my reader feed when you return (unless ya take it private).

You know I read your blog and that I think the world of you. You are a talented writer. You are a passionate and dedicated runner. You are an amazing mother and an incredible friend. All of this is conveyed on your blog - I applaud you for it and I learn from you. I will miss reading your writing - but I absolutely understand you gotta do what you gotta do! I will be here when you return!

I must live under a rock because I haven't a clue what people are doing to you. I'm sorry that you are not able to freely say what you want to. (I've recently had to aplologize for a post about me that hurt a friend's feelings. Which was odd because it was about me....not her.)
But you do what you have to and I hope you come back to blogging. You are such a talented writer!

Sorry to rear that, but won't go anywhere . . . will read whenever you come back.

Just saved the link to the RRR page, just in case. Your writing always gives me motivation, reflection, or a grin. I hope to keep reading it! Take care.

Grrr...this is my comment. Having known you personally for many years, this blog has helped me cheer you on and motivated me to be better myself. You are such a great writer that whatever weirdness is going on will not stop you.
