Yes, This Blog is Alive, and in Perfect Hibernation

When I first started this blog many moons ago, I had ample time and energy to give it the attention it deserved. Eight years and two kids later, I've found that blogging is one of a number of activities and hobbies that have ended up on the back burner. Even completing this simple post ended up taking me over a month.

However, I am not prepared to hang up the keyboard for good, and rather than continue to muddle along half-assing it, I am officially placing this blog on hiatus with a indeterminate return date.

In the interim, I have decided to focus my more limited resources on providing much more frequent updates via the Silver Spring, Singular Facebook page and SSS's long-dormant Twitter account. (According to some commenters, these would consist solely of crime reports.)

So, while there may not be as much detail or commentary as might be have been found on the blog, hopefully these will still provide outlets for discussion of Silver Spring-related subjects. Of course, the downside is that Bethesda Troll and other Silver Spring haters might be forced to create anonymous accounts on those services if they wish to continue to participate. It really wouldn't be the same without them, would it?

Also, I am open to the idea of an interim blogger who would take over the reins during my hiatus, with the option to stay on as co-blogger when I do return. I'm not exactly sure how this might work, but if you're interested, please feel free to email me.
