I had trouble thinking of something that started with a "C" at midnight, so I'm just throwing this out for you guys. Last June, right when I was starting to hit my stride with the blog, I took a third job as the clerk for the small town I live in. I already managed the library in the next town over and worked at the one here (and still do at both), so taking another job really cut into my time for blogging.
In order to keep my blog alive, I gave up my painting and the time I spent interacting with my readers and other bloggers. (I still return visits, even if I don't always comment on posts.) I never did it much anyways as I know I'm awkward and say strange things, and I'm very intimidated by those who have been blogging longer than me, but now I barely do it at all. I think my blog would be a lot stronger and the experience richer if I was able to visit and socialize with all the bloggers and readers. However, the only time I have left is what I spend sleeping, eating, and with my daughter, and those aren't going anywhere.
Hopefully, I will have the extra time to spend on the social aspect of blogging again in the future. Until then, I hope you enjoy reading my posts and forgive my silence.
