Of course I'm kidding.

I'm saying goodbye to blogging-not actual blogging (because I will cry and cry and cry), but blogging for three times a day.
My record for producing the most number of blog posts in one day was 20 and that was way back in 2009. Until now, I'm still wondering how I was able to do that. Then from 20, it became 10 blog posts per day, then 4, then down to 3. For three years now, I've been blogging for at least three times a day-some people couldn't believe how I can do that given my schedule and work, but I can because I write and think pretty fast. Personally, I also like reading around 4- 5 blog posts per day on other blogs so I thought my readers are pretty much like me too. Well now, I don't think so-maybe I've been blogging a bit too much. Maybe I have forgotten that we are all different. Maybe I've dissed the fact that my readers and I have a life too. Call me paranoid, will you, but this is what I've been feeling and thinking lately. Like what they say, your instincts are right most of the time.
Excessive blogging is like an overly sensitive lover. He will indulge you to death and smother you with cheesiness-it's good at first then afterwards, it becomes a bit too overwhelming borderline irritating. The sad ending sometimes is, you and the lover just end up being friends because he's just too much for you to take.
I want my blog to be the place a woman (or man) will go to to de-stress, be entertained, and make time for some of the little things in life that make her (and him) happy. But if they visit my blog and realize that they have so much catching up to do on top of work and family matters, they will be overwhelmed and eventually, stressed. I hate stress and ultimately, I don't want to cause stress. Oh, I don't want to be labeled as a spammer too.
Thank God I also realized early on that my intense love for blogging has somewhat turned me into a burden for my boyfriend. Every time we'd meet, I'd always tell him that I have to blog so we sit down in a coffee shop, act as if we don't know each other (because I don't like talking when I'm writing), and watch him get bored to death. And when I'm finally through and ready to proceed with our date, he's already sleepy so the obvious option is just to go home and our chance to talk with each other was wasted. I can take the burden I impose upon myself, but to become a burden to others? That I cannot take. Freddie Mercury was right when he sang "Too much love will kill you."
So starting today henceforth (changes will apply though), you will only be seeing two blog posts from me. It's still a pretty cool number and time slots would be 10am and 1pm- one blog post to perk you up in the morning, and one blog post that will serve as 'coffee' for the sleepy hour of the day. Time slots aren't set in stone though, but one thing's for sure: There will be updates daily. :D
Now I can imagine how 'light' my days would be. I would have more time to help around the house, check on my clients, sleep, and of course more time to spend with my loved ones. ;)
So that's me thinking aloud. Have a great Monday. :)
