I’m considering saying good bye to blogging and moving on. It’s been a great run and a long one but I’m feeling like “I’ve said that before” every day now. And, I am feeling the same way about answering support forum questions day in and day out too. Update: September 24th, 2014 I have to eliminate sources of stress from my life now due to … Continue reading Time to Say Good-Bye

Next week it will be seven months since I published my first post. This “blogging thing” is new to me, although writing is not.
