It’ll soon be Consentinga̶d̶u̶l̶t̶s̶humans’s first half-anniversary.
In that time I’ve published 44 posts, received 14,830 views, 4,032 visits and 546 comments. It’s been exhilarating, stimulating and challenging.
It’s also been quite exhausting.
Like the kid who sets off on a cross-country race as if it were a sprint, I’m a bit prone to over-enthusiasm: I like to throw myself into things thoughtlessly and willy-nilly and then sort out the fine details once I’ve made a mess.
I published some 12 post in my first couple of weeks blogging. I remember how back then I’d wake up early in the morning just bursting to get to my computer and post on some subject that it seemed essential that the world should know about.
Ahh, the reckless innocence of youth!
I’ve gradually slowed down to a rhythm of publishing one post per week, but the posts seem to be getting longer, and harder to research and write – and some recent posts have obtruded into my life much as would a full-time job. If I’m not exactly feeling ‘burnt-out’ but maybe some of my more papery edges are getting a little ‘singed’.
Which is a long-winded way of saying that I’m going to take off a month or so from blogging to re-charge my batteries, pursue some projects that are not paedo-related and to sort out some real-life business that needs sorting out.
When I return I’ll be posting at the more manageable rate of once a fortnight.
So, see you then my friends and comrades – and if I get time I’ll send you a postcard.
