Time to Say Goodbye

Hey there everyone, it's your old pal Diary here to admit defeat.  Over the past few months I haven't posted much, read many blogs or tweeted worth a shit.  Things are just too crazy.  So I feel that it's best to fold up camp for this particular little blog concern and think about what might be ahead in the future.

It's not that I don't love to blog, love the community and of course, love to have an outlet through which I can call people out on their ridiculous shit. I certainly do love every minute of that.  However, my life is very full at the moment with a mix of things really good and not so good and this mix of stuff is keeping me occupied.  There is no cause for alarm or concern.  Let's just say that busy does not even begin to describe it.

Before I go, I would like to say a word of love to some of the bloggers that I have discovered on this journey that made a positive impression on me and kept me around for as long as I was.  There are too many to mention individually, but these were among my regular reads.  If you haven't checked them out, you must.  I am too lazy/tired to link to them, but a google search works just as well:

Lin at Duck and Wheel with String
Allison at 400 Wake Ups
The Empress at Good Day Regular People
Wendi Aarons
Surfer Wife
Amy at Goodbyte 20's Hello Botox
Mom of the Perpetually Grounded
Sara Spelled Without an H

That is just a small portion of the list of people that I have enjoyed reading and if your name isn't on the list, know this; if I ever visited  your site and left a comment, I have enjoyed your blog and I appreciate your writing.

So what's next for me?  Other than donning a ninja outfit and running night maneuvers on the PTA,  I am not really sure.  Things have really picked up for my son's band and driving them to shows and going to work will continue to take up a lot of my time.  I really do enjoy being pseudo-roadie, I'm thinking about growing a beard and getting a tattoo of a flaming skull on my forearm, to really embrace the look.

In my heart, I don't believe that this is the end of blogging for me, rather it is more of a new beginning.  There are many possible future concepts out there for me, I just have to get through the craziness of the next couple of months before I reinvent myself.  Perhaps I will lose my mask and come out from behind the shadows of anonymous blogging or maybe I will stay anonymous and tell stories about the unbelievable people that I encounter in corporate America (I swear that one guy is skinning people and wearing their pelts at night).  Whatever it may be, I will be sure to reach out to all of you that have had such a positive impact on me to let you know that I am back.

Hugs, Kisses and Hatred for the PTA.
Your Girl Diary

Oh great. This is turning out to be a really crappy day. First, Tazzy the Wonder Bird (a friend's birdy) flies to the Great Beyond and now THIS???! What the ...???!

All this sadness and goodbyes.....sheesh. Alright, I'll just open a whole new box of kleenex.

I really hope that you will stay in touch and visit me every now and then. I'm really, really gonna miss ya, pally. You just make me laugh. And what am I gonna do without Spike the Hotness Monster and Brownie the Wonder Dog updates???!

Crud. You could have at least posted one final photo of them for me!!! Boooohoooooo!

And if you are ever, EVER wanting to post something--please let me know. There is ALWAYS room for a guest post at the Duck and Wheel. Mi blog es su blog. Or whatever they say in Espanol.

I have been so out of the loop and I come back to blogging to hear this? Whatever is going on in your life, while it is busy or stressful, I hope it is only leading you to good and positive things. And while its not always about blogging as your outlet - I hope you find the creative ways to get what you need out there. We all need our forms of therapy in one form or another.

Goodbye Darling - I am sure we will meet again :-) Please stay in touch!

I shut down today, too. I get it. Life just happens, right? Best of luck to you!

The Empress said...

I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I'm crying right now.

And not a little, either.

You took my post for the teenager link up and made me feel TEN FEET TALL b/c a cool lady like you would take a nerd like me, and allow me to post here.

I can't tell you, I walked around like I had Superman's cape that day you emailed me to say you loved my "Teenager in translation."

You have no idea just how much I loved coming here.

I am so very sad.

Please..just a post a month? Every 3 months?


*I'm just about to offer to write them for you except that that makes no sense. Because I miss you, pretty sick of listening to me.

I may be right behind you on this front...just too many other things filling my time these days.

I was thinking about your boy recently and how he went to that green day music school, and was wondering if he still played. Glad to hear he is! And roadie mom?? I would KILL for that job!

All my best to your family; take care, love:)

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Oh DG. I hope you catch this because I'm so late finding the post. I'm so bummed to read this. Who else will so perfectly share my PTA loathing? I'll be missing your humor and thinking about you, I already was because I heard Green Day this morning, I Walk Alone. Don't walk without us very long because we will all miss you too much.

ally could dispatch them. With an average annual fee of 10,000 pounds, representing

A low quality product may lose its shine in a few days or may simply get tarnished due to overuse or after coming in contact with water. In fact the publicly owned Ecopetrol has seen an immense FDI surge in the past few years and in spite of being overvalued to some, the stock still is a good bet due to the growth potential it has. Dependency enslaves you, giving others the ultimate power over how you perceive and feel about yourself. I died numerous times because of the stupid reload system.

This is a common misconception which will be resolved
only with firsthand experience. If the executives promise high traffic then
understand you are talking with a non-SEO person.

Out of those 6 keywords, further reduce the number of keywords. Is professional search engine marketing the thing that you need.

Over the years, web promotion has made a mark in the industry and has helped numerous entrepreneurs to build large business return through web. The final way that you can use your Deviant - ART profile for SEO purposes is by being an active member of the community ' watch the work of others (especially
if they are related to your business), encourage others to watch your work, comment on work, list other
users as your friends. The concepts make use of the current social networking sites, which are very popular among the online audience.
Their success is based on how many sales and customers
you bring. Such services also include some
research that will need to be done so they can apply this research
on major keyword. For this reason, having mentions from these sites have increasingly
become a more valuable asset for your internet marketing.
It has been designed especially for business purposes and it holds biggest importance for your B2B online marketing strategy.

With most visitors noting the first 3-5 web links of the first page, further
sustained SEO efforts bring the company web link to that web positioning high up as much as possible.
