I like to follow the rule of working hard and playing hard. Maintaining a blog I do for my own personal enjoyment with no monetary gain requires just as much hard work as doing my day job (the one that actually provides me with a regular salary) does. It’s rare for me to take a break from doing my blog. I only post once a week. It won’t kill me to keep doing it, you know? The only time I do allow myself the luxury of a break is when I’ll be away from home and the computer for an extended amount of time. Once again, as of today, I’m going on vacation.
What’s great about coming home after being away on vacation are the memories you bring back, the stories and photos you have to share with your friends and family, and the feeling of being rejuvenated and ready to resume your regular life with a new vigor.
What does this old Christopher Cross song have to do with my hiatus? Aside from showing my age by referencing this song, plenty! This is my cute way of saying my blog will be going on a little hiatus for the rest of September.
I’m going on a lovely Mediterranean cruise in Europe and it’s a long overdue vacation I haven’t had in a while. It’ll be nice to be away from my job and to take a small break from blogging. This also means my weekly posting duties on Tuesday nights at Geek Force Network will be a bit quiet too until I return. Don’t worry though. I’ll be back the first week of October, but you may not see any new posts until the second week of that month at least. Maybe. Hey, I’m going to be tired and jet lag when I come back. I’m dedicated to blogging, but not that dedicated.
October will also be an exciting month not just for myself, but for the blog as well. I’ll be attending New York Comic Con that month and I’m going to try to cover all the things I do at the con from the panels I attend to all the amazing cosplayers and showroom stuff I encounter. It’ll be geekiness galore come October. Keep an eye out for that because you won’t want to miss it. Also, be sure to head over to Geek Force Network later today to get my last post on the site before I sail away.
