Just Can't Say Goodnight

I have been meaning to go on a hiatus or even pulling the plug on Blugstuff but I can't seem to do it. The truth is that I really just don't have the time to give this blog the attention that I once did. My posts have dried up to one or two a week and it is disheartening to me after the pride that I took at posting daily. It's not that I don't have anything to say. It is just that I don't have the time to say it anymore. So I will keep doing my occasional posts and limp along hoping that someday I can get back to posting more frequently.


I am also sorry that I do not have time to check on my blogroll and all my blogfriends as much as I would like. I try diligently to keep up but there are just not enough hours in the day. Yet, I do try and keep up even if it means setting aside one day to check on what everyone is doing all week long. Tuesday is that day, this week, so I will see you tomorrow and thanks so much for putting up with my half-assed blogging as of late.

Well SHIT.

What, you want to have a freakin' LIFE and you expect us to all sit here and wait for you to come by whenever you have the damn TIME?

Cool with me.

Just don't give up.

Phats said...

half assed blogging?! You do a great job, hell of a lot better then me lately. Don't worry about it! I have never been able to blog daily

tsduff said...

Quit beating yourself up! Everything comes and goes in cycles - your place is the coolest ever and even though there may be a little space between offerings, each one is just as great as ever. Don't stop please Fuzz.

Mike said...

Well its about time you said your sorry you ungrateful shit!

Dude........everyone have things to do that take precidnt over blogging, myself included. Just do it when you have time.

ella m. said...

i've never managed a daily blogging schedule, so I'm not about to get huffy if someone else can't either.

I hope you do decide to keep on though, it'd suck if you didn't

:P fuzzbox said...

andie: I won't. At least not yet.

phats: Thanks!!! I appreciate that.

terry: To everything there is a season. I just keep wondering if the season is about up on this blog. Thanks for being there for me.

mike: Thanks, I think that you are probably right. I will keep on doing it when I can.

ella: I will keep on until I start really sucking. Hopefully I have the sense to know when that is.

A word of support--the same thing happened to me last fall. I was posting three or four times a week.

Then I got busier.

Now I post once a week, and I still enjoy it. And that hasn't driven away most of the folks in our now year+ blogging circle, a couple of whom are still with you, too.

We'll be here as long as you are. Don't sweat it--if it's once every week or two, it's all good.

Bruce said...

Dude, I have no life and even I have cut back. I echo David's sentiments; don't sweat it.

Mimi said...

Hey, this is my post! You stole it;-)

I feel the same exacy way. Even when I do have time anymore, I just dont feel like it. It has become a chore.

Lolly said...

I know how that goes. It will be all that much more exciting when I drop by and see you've been here!
Peace,

:P fuzzbox said...

david: Thanks. I appreciate it. We have seen so many come and go. I am still having fun blogging and that makes it hard to not have the time to do it as much as I would like.

bruce: I appreciate that.

mimi: Blogging hasn't become a chore. My work schedule has.

lolly: Thanks!!!

Green Eyes said...

Fuzz, I truly understand! It's so disheartening to me that I can't get around to everyone like I used to.

That said, your posts ALWAYS put a smile on my face and I'm going to beg you not to stop, just post when you can so I can keep looking forward to hitting my Fuzz link!

Hugs, luv ya!

EZ said...

hey fuzz
whatever, whenever, you are a great guy!

angel, jr. said...

Hi Fuzz, I've been pretty half-assed lately too. Maybe it's just the weather.

phred said...

I have been 1/4 assing mine. Just not enough hours in the day.
Don`t give it up... do what you can , when you can.
Remember.. it`s a sick world, and what would we do without YOU.

Ol' Lady said...

hey fuzz...
don't stop...
don't stop...
don't stop...
Oooohhhhh please don't stop...
thanks...
it's always good with you :)

Jim said...

please, you live in West Texas, what else could you possibly have to do!!! /s/ former resident of Odessa, Jim

Gerald Ford said...

As a new parent myself, I TOTALLY understand. Take care, good buddy. :)

jane said...

Hey Fuzz, don't feel bad. The main priority about blogging is that it be enjoyable for you. Enjoyable doesn't include worrying.
We all go through phases like this. I've seen it especially with people who have been blogging a year or 2. Adjust to your life, blog when you want, visit when you can...ENJOY!

michaelm said...

Don't worry about it, Fuzz.
Judging from the comments no one here is worried about it.
Obviously we'd all love to see two or three posts a day...in a perfect world, right?
Hang in there and do what you can do.
As Jane so eloquently said, it's all about being enjoyable.
Be safe, be well, Fuzz.

LisaBinDaCity said...

No worries, Fuzz. I'm in the same boat, less time to blog as real life gets in the way. Damn it!

Twice a week is the norm for many folks...

Phats said...

Brackets are up best of luck fuzz!! :)

the weirdgirl said...

No worries, fuzz! I know how you feel, I seem only able to read or post and not both. I end up with these weird marathon runs of either reading or writing.

We've all run into this. Just stick around and know we're thinking of you.

Catch said...

Sweety...you take all the time you need....when your good...your good ;))

:P fuzzbox said...

green eyes: And it's always nice to see you around. Thanks!!!

ez: Thanks!!! I appreciate it.

angel, jr: Maybe it's something we can blame on global warming.

phred: And I am still happy. :)

ol' lady: I'm not stopping. At least not yet.

:P fuzzbox said...

jim: So you were just a hop skip and jump down the road. That's cool.

gerald: Young 'uns can be a handful.

jane: Sometimes adjustment is pretty damn hard but I am trying.

michael: Thanks, You know that I appreciate it.

lisa: Sometimes I can't even handle that load well.

phats: Thanks for letting me in on it.

weirdgirl: You couldn't be more right about being able to read or write. It is damn tough to do both at the same time these days.

catch: And as Mae West would say, 'And when I'm bad, I'm better.' ;)

Writer Chick said...

I so know how you feel Fuzzy. I've been having a hard time keeping up myself lately. You do what you can do. And besides honey, it's all about the quality not the quantity, right? No worries. No stress. We all still love ya.

Leigh said...

Glad you haven't left. It wouldn't be the same around here without you. I think we all get into a slump. Spring is coming soon, hopefully that will help.

Breezy said...

Well I think it's crap you lazy bastard!

Reiki 4 Life said...

so, do you just want me to shoot you and put you out of your misery?


um, that was a joke, darlin'

yeah, blogging can eat up the time, eh? And yes, it is fun, but so is 'real world' life...balance, that's all you need. You know, it doesn't have to be all or nothing, does it?

I know I'll love ya no matter what, fuzz. how could I not?

be well. :)

phlegmfatale said...

You know, I've had the same problem for a long time, about not having time to check on blogfriends. I think everyone will just have to understand that once in a while, we all hit a patch of time that is too busy and hectic, and this is one of the frivolities that has to take a back seat to the necessities of life. I'm glad you're not hanging it up completely, though. :)
