I am backing away from Hot Dogma! my home for the past two years, with a heavy heart. Though the product doesn’t always look like it, I’ve spent at least two hours every day new stuff appeared on this blog, finding appropriate (and sometimes inappropriate) topics, stealing art, and trying to keep the conversation going. I have on occasion done heroic (and silly) things to get an internet connection so that I can keep an unending flow of…blog, served hot and fresh daily, to you.
But whatever. No one asked me to do that and I realize full well your life would have gone on fine without me, but I’m not sure the same can be said about myself. It has been, in a word, a blast. It’s also been frustrating, maddening, and awesome, and sometimes all those things on the same day.
Here’s the deal: I am working on a book that is starting to take up a lot of time. I also think I’ve shared every opinion I’ve ever had up to now, so maybe it’s time to go off and create some new opinions. I’ll consider whether those are worth sharing down the road. I do tend to start new blogs eventually. Maybe it’s like a rash I can’t shake.
I want to thank you for being such a faithful reader. Some of you have gone from Dating Jesus to Fear, Itself to Still Small Voice to here. That is just so incredibly awesome, and I appreciate it. I can hardly imagine not reading your snarky, thoughtful, funny, painful comments every day, but I’m going to try to bear up, at least for now.
In the meantime, please don’t be a stranger. Please.
