Good bye for now

Today is coincidentally the day I wrote my very first post in 2006. I've enjoyed blogging to the core and am seriously considering bowing out gracefully. Yes, for quite sometime now I've been thinking of giving up writing - no, not totally for I'll be writing for women's web as and when possible - but I do not know if I can give up blogging completely. Blogging has been such an enriching experience that I may soon be back with something I wish to share. But for the time being it is retreat time.

H'Gma, I sort of kept coming back to it, so I never really called it a break, just very infrequent. I guess the same might happen to you.

Have fun, Take Care and God Bless!

and oh yeah hope you still keep visiting me on my blog.

With Best Regards,
Srijith.

I am an anonymous reader of your blog and love your style of writing as well the matters you write about. You are particularly good at humor and I hope one day when you are free of your other commitments, you will come back to write. Meanwhile, I will catch up with your writings on women's web. Wishing you the best!

Please don't say that HHG. Do take a break but don't stop. Hoping to see you blog again...

Hey what happened hip grandma, I thought you will write sequel about your aunt's relation with her mother-in-law and suddenly you decided not to write anymore. No you cant do that.-Ashwini

Hip Grandma said...

Hi all,
Thanks for your response. It is not that i won't write in future. Right now I don't feel up to it. I have some work regarding the minor research project that I have in hand. I also have to help with the compilation of the proceedings of the National Seminar. We have a workshop on Development of Managerial Skills coming up in October. I would be very much involved in that too.
With all this playing in my mind and my own paper only half completed I had to give up blogging that I enjoyed so much. My heart is not into it and I am not able to do justice. I may start blogging sometime after my superannuation in Jan 2013 or even earlier if i feel inclined to. I'll catch up with your posts as and when time permits. Happy blogging all of you.

Ashwini:I remember my commitment to write a sequel. will do it sometime in the future.

HHG, I totally sympathize with you and see your point. But do keep in touch otherwise.

hey, i dont think people who blog ever stop writing...they just go from one expression to another...there is a particular trait in bloggers that makes them do what they do and all seems to come to this point where the words are no longer important, expressing is no longer a requirement...
It was great knowing u and i hope i am around to see you back...

Saumya said...

Ohh...I now have no good blogs to read from my list :(

All the best for your research project HHG - hope to see you back soon.
