The kindness of strangers

Aside from this post, I am having a little blogging break for a while. I have become sick of the sound of my own voice, especially when I lose my sense of humour over a comment or two, and I refuse to set the 'blog owner approval' delay here.

The last time I didn't post for a couple of days, someone emailed me to find out whether or not I was still alive. I couldn't work out if I was touched or dismayed by that kind gesture.

  2. What you need is a lowly paid assistant to humour the commentators,while you get on with the serious business of writing your posts. After your break.

  4. Use your blog break for whatever is best for you. Those of us who enjoy reading your blog should want nothing else for you.

    1. I've had the break now - I don't mean to be a drama queen, but that's how it works out sometimes.

    1. That would be a bit complicated. I also devise and control their social life right now, and I know their place.

  8. Sorry to hear this - comments can be hurting, and there is no right way to deal with them. Will miss you. Hope you will be back soon.

  12. It does get hard sometimes. Especially when you work on a post and get no comments. I think, is anybody out there? I try to always comment; it just seems like something one should do. Have a good break. Don't be gone long though. I get a kick out of all of you in Great Britain.

    1. P.S. I am fine, really. And - really - I am not an attention-seeker! Honest! I'll be posting sooner than you think dignified after this one!
