I greatly appreciate the outpouring of love in the comments section of the prior post—you all certainly know how to make a guy feel appreciated :-)
As my announcement came without any explanation, I wanted to share some reasons for the ‘expiration date.’ First off, I need to focus on my professional development—my current job isn’t providing the sort of fulfillment that one would expect from working at a non-profit organization. Thankfully, my duties as a wildlife capture & transport volunteer help to ‘fill the void’, so to speak. Of course, as much as I enjoy it, volunteering often absorbs much of my free time, thus leaving less time for the blog.
Maintaining the blog is usually a nocturnal activity for me, and I’ve really been feeling the impact of diminished sleeping hours, so I need more rest.
Finally, I’m running low on material to post. I’ve still got some good stuff at the ready, and I am most fortunate to have a couple of generous benefactors contributing to the cause. However, as it is my policy to only offer out-of-print CD singles and compilations, that places limitations on what may be made available from my collection.
So hopefully everyone can understand where I’m at and why I made that decision. And contrary to everything just stated, I have an idea for a new blog, which may or may not appear next summer (if I have the time and energy).
By the way, slacker303 mentioned a poll I wasn’t aware of on Welcome To Wherever You Are. Apparently, Methods of Dance was voted second most popular music blog by Aid00’s followers—not too shabby! And for that, I thank you all again :-)
