I’m A Quitter

I signed on to post once a day every day of November. I’ve done this before, I thought, no problem. I can vomit enough words to post for 30 days straight.

I had things to get off my chest, and I did. Now I’m burnt out again.ย I just don’t have it in me any more. I’m not a post-a-day guy anymore. I don’t have the desire. What once was a community that gave me strength is now one that has taken as much as it has given.

Some time yesterday evening I realized I hadn’t posted. My first thought wasn’t “I better get something posted.” It was…

zero fucks given

Posting just to say I posted isn’t something I feel like doing any more. Blogging, writing, doesn’t mean as much to me as it once did. So I’m throwing in the towel. I don’t want to post just to post. I want to post when I have something significant to say. Or something I want to say. Not everything I want to say is significant. In fact, most of what I say is only significant to me. Be that as it may, I will post when I feel like it.

So, this time, I’m a quitter. You know what?

i don't even give a fuck


What’s something that used to mean everything to you but now you could give a fuck less about?

  1. Never really understood the need to post daily. Some do, and are very good at it. Others not so much.
    As long as you’re getting out the things you need to, you’re doing better than any schedule.

  2. Well if my two cents count, that meme you got of the “Count” guy from Sesemy Street made me laugh.

    As for NaBloPoMo I feel you. I’ve haven’t posted each day for months. There are more important things to do do – and posting just for the heck of it seems…. like a waste of time. You could simply put up your favorite Meme’s one each day to make me laugh though. Didn’t you have a whole page dedicated to those things?

  3. I threw in the towel the second day! I had every intention to participate but I didn’t have it in me. Glad I can let go of the guilt because I’m not by myself๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Thank you, TD! I feel obligated to read posts by my favorite bloggers. But every day? Every day? I have 220 email notifications since Saturday. Nobody has enough to say to do a post every day!

    Or if you do, do it in a book!


  5. Bravo for not caring!! Nothing more freeing than giving yourself a break. ๐Ÿ™‚ “I can vomit enough words to post for 30 days straight.” LOL, I love that line. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Hahaha!! I quit too. I just stopped instead of announcing it โ€” not like anyone would notice anyway. But I have to say I totally feel you about the community bit. I miss the good old days. But still, I give no fucks. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ


  7. Always genuine is your tag line. This post proves it.


  8. Even with the quitting, you still beat my longest daily post stretch by about 20 days. ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. You know what I really really love? Giving zero fucks. You know what I love even more? When The Count tries to count them.


  10. I didn’t post yesterday either. And this NanoPoblano business is def not how I roll. Gotta have time to charge the creative battery ya know?


  11. I guess there’s some people who once it felt like my world would fall apart without them who I rarely ever hear from or see these days, and it’s not a huge problem that I don’t see them or hear from them. I guess because I’ve moved on, they’ve moved on and there are other people in my life instead.

    Sometimes it’s absolutely necessary to give no f***s. It’s called self-preservation.


  12. I am with you, of course I would have never made it this far. Good on you for getting to here.
