Vahni of Grit and Glamour TOTALLY has me pegged with this article she wrote for IFB. Like I’m-looking-for-the-hidden-camera pegged.

Obviously, this is no big news to you, loyal and patient blog reader (or similarly awesome person who stumbled across this URL- ‘sup?). I am burnt out. I don’t really know how or why it happened, but since June-ish I have not been able to get excited about writing a post to save my life. Or, I get excited about a post, allow my perfectionist-paranoid streak to take over, and edit the *$%& out of that thing until the moment, whatever it was, is past. For instance: In July, I was invited to a “White Party.” At the time, I was seriously jonesing for a sexy white dress like this one that reality star Kristen Cavallari wore to a Nylon party on the show. (Yeah, I watched “The Hills.” I LIKE TRASHY TV, OK?) And pale neutrals were all the rage anyway, so I thought, what a great opportunity to write a post on white clothing!
No need to dig through the archives. It’s not there.
It’s just one of many poor, dead posts hanging out in my draft folder, never getting their place in the sun. And you know, some are crappy and deserve to be there. But some were short-shifted by my blogger-burnout state of mind.
And so we come to now. I really love blogging. I love writing and I love designing and I love all the nerdy tech stuff too. The fact that I can reach out across the Interwebz to someone across the world thrills me. The idea of reaching out to someone two blocks from me that I have never met gives me goose bumps. What the Internet can do for community and human connection astounds me, but for awhile, I need a break. And I’ve kind of been half-heartedly slumping toward it, so I’m going to go ahead and make it official: don’t expect to see anything here until New Years. I am finishing the year up and then starting anew, hoping that I can jump in and participate in this amazing conversation that is the blogosphere.

For the record, I’m sorry I’ve been absent. Not because I think you’re checking the blog everyday (though that would be AWESOME and I would love you forever), but because I miss reading your comments and your blog posts and having that conversation with all of you. So I’ll be back, but not until after a nice healthy dose of real world holiday cheer. And not until after I’m done with finals (my last EVER), this seasonal job at Borders (mall job, y’all. Yeah…), actually DOING all the freelance work I’ve been pushing to the side, and after I do some of the legwork for my impending and scary-as-hell job hunt a.k.a. first foray into big girl land.
See you in 2011, y'all!
