I will be taking a short break from blogging. I have a bunch of friends and family visiting over the next two weeks and will not have the time to spend researching and posting here. I will, however, read any comments and take part in any discussions should they arise.
Instead of just leaving a blank space during this time, I’m offering this post as a space to chat, ask questions and discuss anything you feel like. As always, I ask you to be polite and respectful to each other. I also want to encourage everyone to think of something positive to share. I know we have been rather stuck on a few issues here and the nature of this blog means that much of the news is rather bleak but perhaps we can take a break from that for a while.
I’ll kick off with this:
I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this blogging community over the last five years. It’s been a bumpy ride at times but life is like that isn’t it ? I have made some amazing friends here and I appreciate every single one of them. Without the people who come here and read and leave comments, this blog would be pointless. I hope that, in some small way, my contribution to the internet has brought some people together and encouraged discussion on some difficult issues. I am thankful for the diverse, interesting, intelligent and creative people I have met along the way. Long may it continue.
Feel free to share….
