On defining this space and taking (another) break

After a blast of NaBloPoMo at the beginning of the month, I have once again grown weary of blogging.

Part of my problem is that I haven't really defined this new blogging space. I wanted to get away from La France Profonde because all of the underlying "an American in rural France" imagery just wasn't me.

I thought opening up possible vistas in a new blog would fling the windows of inspiration wide open.

It hasn't happened yet, and I suspect it won't now until my summer holiday comes and I have the time to get the architecture of this blog set up a little better.

I also think I need some sort of underlying concept, because blogging without boundaries just leaves me with too many decisions to make at the end of what are already long, busy days.

Until then, I'll no doubt see you on another nearby social network.


  1. It will come to you! Meanwhile we'll see you on those "other" social networks... and our blogs (I hope). :)

  2. Blogging is a tough road to hoe what with full-time work, kids, year both girls will be at the fac in Toulouse and Montpellier; maybe I'll find more "me" time...

  3. There are days when I find myself wondering if it might make more sense to reallocate my blogging time elsewhere. It's usually an in-between kind of activity, anyway, a note jotted into my BlackBerry while walking the dog, then polished and published from the laptop when I get back home.

    But I nevertheless muse about stopping it entirely to give me a chance to breathe, to get some much needed distance from the grind, I often wonder what it would feel like to put down my pen for a bit. Thanks for the perspective, Betty! I'd read you wherever you are :)
