We threw that term around quite a bit this weekend at our house. It was kind of a disappointing weekend for us, I have to admit. We hosted our annual Oktoberfest party on Saturday. We had invited about 60 people. We had positive responses from about 24. 8 showed up. Of those 16 who didn't show up, only 8 notified us earlier in the day that they couldn't make it.
So Matt and I decided that this year was the Swan Song for our Oktoberfest party. Why should we bother to make the effort when no one else does? It was a lot of work and a lot of money that we invested into that party, only to be pretty let down when no one showed up.
But that's not really the point of this post - to bitch about our lack of guests at our Oktoberfest party. The point of this post is that this will be my blogging Swan Song. I have really enjoyed blogging for the last (almost) 2 years, but I kind of feel like my blogging juices are running dry. I rarely have time to write, or topics that I want to write about. And while I like the Man-Candy Mondays and the Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesdays, I don't want to be one of those bloggers who only blogs the memes. But I don't feel enough creativity to keep it going.
So I'll be signing off. I just feel like lately I've been neglecting my blog, and the pressure that I keep trying to put on myself to be a "better" blogger is just kind of silly. I never set out to be a regular, long-time blogger, and rather than try to force myself to be something that I'm not, I'm just going to let go.
I still plan to read all of your amazing blogs. My Google Reader is chock-full of all your wonderful-ness. Thanks for always reading. And all the comments. Although I was not a comment-responder most of the time, I swear that I really did appreciate each and every one of your comments.
Take care, my bloggy-friends. Come follow me on Pinterest, if you want!
