Taking a few weeks off….

Okay, I guess the time has come to cut back on my posting.  I am not discontinuing my blog, but I am going to take a sabbatical of a few weeks, maybe longer.  Not sure how long.  I have been somewhat under the weather for the couple weeks.  Nothing serious, but I haven’t been able to get my creative juices going.

But, I have to admit, I may be getting a bit tired.  I am approaching my 80th birthday.  I have been blogging here since September of 2009 and this will be my 758th post.  In that period, I have received 145,995 hits, readers in 156 countries, and 11,174 visitors in just the past six months.  Of the top 1,000 birding blogs, mine is number 217.

Most importantly, I have met some very special people that have definitely changed my life.  That would not have happened if I hadn’t started this Texas Tweeties blog.  And, by the way, I can’t forget that it was another special person that talked me into starting this in the first place.

I have also gained friends in other countries.  I am thankful for all of the loyal readers that I have had.  I have enjoyed their comments and also enjoyed reading their blogs.

But, of course, this is not good-bye.  I hope to be back soon and someday post that 800th post before I “retire”.  So keep checking back.  You subscribers, of course, will get an e-mail notification when I resume.
