Letter to Blog Peeps


 Dear Precious Blog Peeps...

With the holidays speeding toward us, whether we are ready for them or not, I had to make a decision.

For the past five years,  Writing Straight from the Heart has been written seven days a week!

It has truly been an exercise of sheer  joy, love, perseverance and self-discipline.

However, as this year's holidays approach, I am going to make some changes on the number of blog posts written.

Because I want to read others' blogs more  as well as do more freelance writing, Writing Straight from the Heart  will no longer be written daily.

Posts will probably be a couple or a few times a week plus weekends.  

Some days there may be just a photograph with a short message.

Change, although painful, is good for both people and blogs!

You are the best readers a blogger can possibly have so I hope the changed schedule of posting will not deter you from checking in to Writing Straight from the Heart.  (That would cause a broken heart------mine!)

Truly, I think most of you will understand time constraints and a myriad of obligations.  



With all my heart, I thank you for reading this blog all these years (five) and hope you will stick with me because I love all of this blog's readers and Followers.

Hugs to all.  Susan

Gosh, this is so understandable!!! Don't worry, bloggers won't leave you. Maybe you will be even more inspired when you do blog! Good luck on a new beginning of something. Change...hard but unstoppable!

Susan you KNOW I understand TOTALLY. So m any of us have had to do this. We went like heck at first - but it is hard to keep up the pace. We love it, but have learned we have other things pressing us.

I will be here.

I know you are struggling with this decision. Hugs.

You have my loyalty always...Lucy~

Of course I understand and will still enjoy reading you and being your blog friend. I write about 4 posts a month and am happy with that amount. Embrace the change!

Enjoy your free time now that you've decided to cut down on posts. You deserve a "break"...have fun reading other posts. l will check to see if you have anything from time to time. Thanks for all your photos and words these past five years.

I completely understand, and I applaud your decision to listen to what your heart is telling you to do. I, too, have had to take a step back from blogging. After all, there really IS life away from the computer.

Blessings,
Patti

I will be looking forward to each and every one of them...
I think it's good that you are doing this...

You have been a faithful blogger, now take a well deserved break and spend time with your sweet little baby, and hubby. Enjoy.

Marta said...

Hello from Spain: I completely understand your change in publishing post. I got it. I have little free time. Anyway. I will continue reading your post. Keep in touch

Susan,
Of course we all understand, even though I have not been blogging as long as you-it is a huge responsibility!
I want you to enjoy your beautiful life and embrace each moment just as your heart desires! I will always be checking in on you-you are a delight!

I've always admired the 7 days a week bloggers and wondered how do they do it. I completely understand and will be a faithful reader as always. Take care!
hugs,
Linda

Times change, Susan, and life gets in the way, which is a blessing, not a complaint. My blogging patterns have changed, too. Take care of YOU! xo

Your perseverance is commendable, Susan. I can't imagine writing a blog post seven days a week for five years. I admire anyone who can do that and live to tell about it. :)

Please take your time off and away from the blog. We'll be here.

I have so enjoyed reading your blog and commenting, but I can totally understand the time constraints. A few times a week and maybe weekends sounds like a good compromise. Will look forward to continued reading of your inspiring blog.

I totally get it! I will still be looking forward to each of your posts!!!

Babs said...

Good for you Susie! Good decision!

How can anyone stop visiting you? You need to do what is good for you my friend. I want to thank you for praying for my son. I can never repay you for your kindness. Sending hugs of love, Martha

Rebecca said...

Thanks for the "heads up"! It sounds like a very wise and well-timed decision....and see how we all understand?

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh Yes, Susan, I totally understand. It's hard to keep up sometimes, isn't it? We only post every three days, which is an average of three times a week. This will give the readers a chance to not have to comment so frequently. I think this is respectful to them as well. I think this will be a great change for you, my friend. Your posts are always so precious.

Happy Thanksgiving.

love,
~Sheri

Beautiful flowers...!

Oh Susan, you don't have to worry. I have always marveled at your posting. I have had such a difficult time this year keeping up on with my blogging.
I think your blogger friends will be there with you even if you posted like most of us. Enjoy the holidays and don't worry. Love ya,
Linda
