Summer Holiday

I'm now so very behind with blogging, with reading blogs and keeping up with the world in general that I have decided to give up for August. As I said a fortnight ago, it is not that I am especially ill, I'm just really slow at the moment. There are also things going on this month which I want to save my energy for. Fortunately, only three you are still reading, and the Internet is generally quite quiet in high summer.

I'll probably be posting again in a couple of days, but this is just in case I vanish for a bit.

The best blogs have three readers! And then so does mine. Actually the new blog I just switched to has a grand total of zero readers and one post, so you haven't missed anything as far as I'm concerned. ;)

Take care of yourself, take your time, and we'll see you when we see you!

It seems unlikely that I'm one of only 3 readers - but if you say so....
Any chance you could put an RSS feed on your page? That way I could see when you had posted something new, rather than actually open the page every day (well, most days anyway). Then I don't spend so much of my work time checking.....!

It's not a contest altho at times it feels that way! Have a good time taking some time to do.... whatever...nothing if that's what works! I still read so now it's up to four!

You had me worried for a minute there! I thought "3 readers? How can that be?" and then I looked at the subscription figures and it was well above that!



OpenID kethry said ... (12:16 PM) : 

well since you've now got 5 comments i think you've probably got a lot more than 3 readers... have a good time away from the blog, and come back soon. We'll miss you!



Anonymous JackP said ... (1:58 PM) : 

If everyone commenting is one of your three readers, does that mean we're only half-reading?

And don't forget the 90:9:1 rule. In any online forum/blog, 90% of visitors never comment, 9% comment 'now and again', and 1% comment regularly...

But you have some time off if you want it, dear. We'll still be here when you get back!

Just when I decided that I needed some of your wisdom to

All of august? I do read, but I guess I am in the 90% who rarely comment. I hope the events you are saving your energy for are really good and you will come back and tell us about them.

Just dropped in to pat your blog nostalgically. :-)

Or maybe I shouldn't pat it; that's like tapping on the glass of a goldfish tank.

I have done much the same thing and believe time out is a really very good idea. It refreshes and means there is much to talk about on one's return. See you when school starts again!


Blogger Ian Hewitt said ... (2:44 PM) : 

Can I be on of The Three? I read regularly and post occassionaly...



Blogger Boogaloo Dude said ... (10:46 PM) : 

Three? Three??

How did you manage to get three?

You're lucky!! I only have two. [sniff]

Have a good rest and enjoy the month (if not the weather!)
