Times, They Are A Changin' and With That Said...

Most recently, I have decided to delete the Independent Titan. I have so much on my plate right now that there is no way that I can run 2 blogs at the same time with my schedule. Looking down the road, I can see that things are going to get even more busy for me and thus another thought has crossed my mind. The Complaint Department may be shutting its doors in the near future. I have toyed with the idea for a few days now, but haven't made a solid decision as of yet. Thing is, I follow a few people now on Facebook and to me, that "may" take the place of this blog.

When I started this blog, I wasn't looking for some sort of attention, nay nay. I really thought there were people out there that were kind of pissed off at the same shit I sometimes get exposed to on a daily basis. The intention was to get people to see my posts and maybe have a few thought go through their head like, "Yeah, ya know, that IS irritating", or something like that. Seems lately that some fellow bloggers are leaving the scene like Sniderman and Sky Girl. They have their reasons and I'm cool with that. So cool, that I may be joining them.

I'm the Complaint Department Manager and I sadly approve this message.

Awww, come on...I'm still here! Sigh. Ok, I guess you can stop blogging if you really feel that you must, BUT...start doing more than an occasional status update on facebook. :-)

I hope you don't quit. But I will say that blogging should be fun or fulfill some goal in your life. If it isn't fun, then I guess you have to do what you have to do. Will you still email me from time to time and shoot the shucks?

Ah, we poor local liberal bloggers are dropping like flies.

CDM: While this sucks, add me as a friend over at facebook so I can continue to send you all of lighthouse related shit just to piss you off!!

Seriously dude, whatever works for you, you need to make happen.

Life is to short to drive shity cars or blog just for the sake of it.

Enjoy it and hope to see you around these tubes.

For the record, it's been 2 days, I think, since he's updated his facebook status! He needs to either update or keep blogging! ;-)

I enjoy blogging, but I do it for me, nobody else. It's my diary that I happen to put online. I have made some friends doing it who I never would have met if it had not been for the blog, such as CDM. I forgot exactly how we came across each other, but it was due to the blogs, and we have become friends, talking frequently on the phone. If it hadn't been for blogging, we never would have met. Blogs are good! :-)

cdm - I certainly know where you're going with this. I have also been in the same frame of mind as you are now. Its tough to feel like writing things when your mind is not into it. I don't know if taking a break will work for you or shutting it down completely is what you end up doing. For the record, I've really enjoyed reading your thoughts and rants and humor. I am not on facebook, so if this is goodbye, I will bid you a fond farewell. Thanks for the great reading. You're one terrific person!

Kim - I just have way too much on my plate. I hate half assing things, it can get to be a habit. I feel that if I can't do it right, then I just don't want to do it at all.

Disordered one - I may just leave this up, but quit posting, I still haven't made up my mind. I'll still pop over now and again as I'll still be able to do that at least.

Jack - Of course I'll still email, as if that needed to be inquired about, shame on you. Besides, you never know when I might pop in over at your place to torment you with word of the latest Pibb findings.

Caspar - As always, I appreciate the sentiment. I believe I may need to add you on Facebook as well.

Longroofer - Senility is an ugly thing ain't it? I'm already on your frind list 'tard! Shit, you forget my name already?

Cali girl - You're pretty awesome yourself. I'll still pop in over at your blog now and then, don't worry. I don't know if a long break would fix it. You can only take so much of my "home movie" approach to my posts lately. This blog has gone from "The Complaint Department" to "What I did on my Summer Vacation".

Bottom line is, 2 jobs Facebook and home/family responsibilities are piling up. PLUS, there is something...or someone new that may be taking a lot of my spare attention.

don't delete it, just hide it from view until you get more time.

Don't feel guilty. I know just how you feel, especially lately! And to the first Anonymous poster--AMEN!

I totally understand, having just come off a blogging hiatus myself. However, rather than quitting for good, you can just take a long ass break and come back when the mood strikes you!
