To Quit or Not to Quit Blogging

Dear CC,

It’s just been a year? I thought you’ve been around for ages! I don’t follow a lot of blogs, but yours is one of the few. I’ve enjoyed reading most of your stuff. Even those that I find boring aren’t a total waste of time as they help put me to sleep. After a long hard day, I consider that grace.

One of your memorable entries that I remember was about telling a best friend turned suitor the bad news that he wasn’t the one. There was a feeling of guilt when you told it to your grandma. You worried about the pain that it would cause.

Grandma’s response? “Let him be,” she said. “It’s his right to suffer.”

If that’s not a classic answer, I don’t know what is. That’s why it got stuck in my head.

Anyway, I congratulate him for trying even if he didn’t succeed. You’re such a good catch. I just hope he’d be a good sport about it and handle it like a true gentleman. Being rejected isn’t the end of the world.

I wish that you’ll continue to write. But if you’ve really decided to quit, that’s ok, too. For sure, you’d be missed. At the same time, I understand there’s more to life than blogging.

In the meantime, my congratulations to your one year anniversary and wish you a happy life!

Yours truly,
P.

    Congratulations! I haven’t been around lately, but I know I have enjoyed the posts I have read here. Wouldn’t a short break be less final? Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    You can quit, but don’t delete your blog or anything. 🙂 I think that one day, when you have more words to ponder on, you’ll come back and write something.

    It’s ok! People grow. Also, it’s always nice to read your writings a few years back.
