Hey, guys. Announcement time.
So as some of you probably know (since half my readership consists of immediate family), and some of you don’t know yet, I’m going on a blogging hiatus for anywhere from two weeks to five months. I can promise you it has absolutely nothing to do with anyone or anything on the internet, or anything remotely related to anybody who might be reading this. There are just some things that have come up in my IRL life (I know, I was surprised I had one, too!), and so Embracing Insanity and other forms of internet interaction will be on the backburner for a while. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific, or more eloquent about this, and I apologize if this causes any inconvenience. All I can ask is that you’d pray for my family and I, and keep being awesome so we can come back in full force ASAP!
When I come back, I’m going to have a LOT of blog-reading to catch up on, but it’ll be worth it in the long run. But here’s some words to my subscribers (and if you’re not on the list, hit the “subscribe” button to the right!).
Mayjay (AJ and Myna): You guys, I’m sorry I didn’t explain what’s been happening lately…. It’s very complicated, and when I come back I’ll try to explain. I’m still praying for both of you…. And AJ, I have Think of Me on my iPod, so you can bet that I’ll be doing just that. DFTBA!
Faith: I’m sorry our hiatuses (hiati?) practically overlap…. Just know I’m still praying about your CTS staying away for good, and (especially) for college! Take care, and take heart in the fact that someone else can win one of your comment contests for once XDXD
Seashell: I’m sorry I haven’t gotten to know you in the past few months as much as I would have liked to. Also, a HUGE thanks for the Versatile Award– I cherish it, and thank you for the kind words 🙂 It brightened my day significantly today.
Genna: We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve shared a very one-sided-awkward moment. Okay, maybe not, but I still appreciate the good humor with which you took my screw up during the book signing contest. When I return, I’m looking forward to catching up on your butt-kicking writing and reading adventures!
Katherine: My friend, you’re incredibly brilliant and talented. Your blog is a treasure that I would hope you continue to nurture, because it’s only a matter of time before your name’s on the spine of a book as well!
Mike: Sorry for chickening out on postaday– so you keep up with the “damn good blogging” for both of us! And if you ever have leftovers, well, you know where to send them 🙂
Kikiann: As a newcomer into blogging, you’ve jumped in headfirst–and you’re one of the brightest stars in my subscription box. I’m praying that you wouldn’t let your Hermoine side get the better of you, and that you’d continue to improve and grow in your writing and your experiences!
This is for you. May your sharks always wear Lady Gaga costumes and your Zebragai spew bubbles.
Tangy: Oh, where to begin? I never got to know you quite as much as I ever wanted, but it’s probably been a good eight months that you’ve always been here, laughing along with me. I wish you luck on your writing and equestrian endevors!
Titania: I’ve been really looking forward to your comments–they brighten my day. Thanks for sharing all this with me!
Bush: As one of my best internet-friends and buddy from the good ol’ days of NaNo when the grass was green and the forums were sprouting with positive content, it’s great that we reconnected again! I’m continuing to pray for you as you write brilliantly, read continuously, and study dilligently.
Nia: As with so many others, I never told you how much your comments bring joy to my day. You’re an incredible writer and friend– and if you end up starting that blog (like I still think you should! XD) email me your URL.
Mercy: Ah, my twin…. We’ve known each other for a long time, and you and your blog always uplift and educate. We may not have actual blood, but it FEELS like it. Film those wombats, my friend. XD
DFTBA, you guys! Keep praying, reading, writing, cooking, talking to sticks of butter and studying. You’re all amazing people and I love you all more than I can express!
Until I return,
