To Shut Down or Not to Shut Down?

I've been doing some serious debating over the past year. I question whether I want to blog anymore.
It used to be fun, but lately feels like a chore.

That's not good.

Over the past month, I've posted videos about women's issues in honor of Women's History Month, and I noticed that I've lost 33 followers during the past few weeks.

I used to write so my good friends could keep up with me when I lived in Birmingham, as a way to stay involved in my life. I've since moved home and probably see everyone even less than I ever did before.

I'm not sure I want my life to be such a public display as much as I use to. It's something I struggle with. I might want to save some stories for myself. Maybe my memoirs? Who knows.

I rarely get comments or feedback or letters. About 4 years ago, I would have dozens of comments and conversation with people about the various topics. Zip lately.

It's like I'm just writing to the wind, which is fine, but I can do that in a notebook at home.

Maybe that's what I'll do.

I'm going to make the decision this week as to whether I will keep this. I will shut it down, and also deactivate the Destination Unknown Facebook fan page. It's not really all that necessary any more.

I do have my other website, but that one will strictly become my travel log. Nothing personal, just showcasing interesting places to visit. Simply because I travel so much.

If you want to follow me there, it's Maybe it's time to just start over. I've been at this since August of 2009, almost 7 years. I think it has just ran its course.

Time to move on. Keep on keeping on.

I'll let you know what I decide.

Until then,

I totally get this. I posted a few and I started feeling like it was a chore. I just felt that I had so much on my plate, it lost its appeal. My role now is a bit "under sharing" - under sharing is the new thing for me. I feel like my friends will keep up with me and I will keep up with them, without obligation. I will miss your blog but, I care more about Nicole than Nicole's blog ;)
