I’m considering saying good bye to blogging and moving on. It’s been a great run and a long one but I’m feeling like “I’ve said that before” every day now. And, I am feeling the same way about answering support forum questions day in and day out too.
Update: September 24th, 2014
I have to eliminate sources of stress from my life now due to a heart condition and adult onset asthma. I had a reality check when I could not breathe and was sent to hospital less than a month ago. I have just reached age 65 and I’m not ready to go yet, so I’m changing my priorities and placing my own health and happiness at the top of my list.
I believe I am addicted to providing support and that I have been viewing this blog as my baby. Neither one healthy and I’m going to change both. I’ve had a long run and a good one but my decision has been made. I will be closing this blog to comments soon and stepping back from answering so many support questions.
My heartfelt thanks to every Reader, Commenter and Staff member who contributed to making this blog a success. I won’t forget you and I’ll keep in touch from time to time. May you all be and stay well and happy.
Keeping in touch

It’s English, TimeThief, but not as I know it, not as I know It. By Guest Author, Jill who blogs at http://jillscene.com
The blogging world once was an alien world to me. When I realised that millions of people are publishing posts every day for anyone, anywhere to read I wondered if we might be heading towards some dystopian, Borg dominated future. Why do that, I wondered, and who exactly reads it anyway? Continue reading “Blogging has a vocabulary of its own”
