The straw that broke the camel's back for me was being highlighted on a blog that I do not read or endorse. I am not saying the blog isn't an excellent source of information for some. I am just miffed that I was mentioned on it without my knowledge or consent before hand. Bringing Dd to the masses is not on my agenda. Blogging for me has always been about sharing experiences and hoping to learn from them on a personal level.
I know we often highlight our friends' blogs with the understanding between each other that that is ok. This was not the case. Yes I am or rather WAS a public blog, but I have long since removed my blog from google search. I do not label my blog to be found easier. I rely on getting to know bloggers and readers through comments on their or my blog. Numbers are not only not important to me- I really don't want a larger reading base. It is difficult enough to put myself out there ( admittedly not something I have been doing much of lately) with those I do know.
I for those who want to 'follow me under' please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org- with your email address you want to follow from. For those who have an aversion to private blogs, I'll understand and please accept my thanks.
(sorry about the lame video...I only had a second to throw it together)Maybe someday I will return to the public eye, or maybe someday I will be gone entirely. I just wanted the chance once more to say thank you to my lurkers, and most importantly to those of you who have taken the time to comment.
