Wondering if I Should Continue Blogging

I suspect most bloggers come to a point where they try to decide if they should keep up their blog or move on. Life gets in the way, jobs get in the way, hobbies change. Blogging isn't the hardest work in the world, probably not even close. But it is almost always something people do in addition to doing bigger things. That's certainly true in my case. I work full time in a Web Team for a large association and my fiancee and I just bought our first house, which is one of the more stressful and time consuming things I've ever done.

I love writing a blog and reading other blogs and I also love working on, which continues to roll on unabated. However, at some point I realized that I needed to sleep and that we all need a little break from the Internet once in a while to smell the roses, or, in my case now, to fight common yard pests.

So I haven't posted in a while and I guess that's OK. I'm sure most of my readers have wandered off to other blogs or sites and there's a good chance there are few around to read this post, which is cool too. As much as I'd like to connect with great, random people around the blogosphere, this blog has always been as much a place for me to deposit my thoughts and discoveries as it has been a place to interact with an audience.

So with all that in mind I'm wondering if I should continue blogging. I have some thoughts on how I might better organize my Web/free time to ensure I can make regular posts, but then I'm not sure if I necessarily should. If you have an opinion I'd certainly be interested in hearing it, but ultimately I guess I'll just have to decide if I still need a blog as an outlet. Maybe a blog about owning your first home...
