Bittersweet Announcement

So, I have an announcement to make that’s going to disappoint some of you. The image to the left is my way of making a bitter pill more sweet.

After a great deal of reflection and angst, I have to come realize I need to back off of blogging. While I love everything about making Tartitude β€” finding “art”, finding words, the sense of community I felt we were developing β€” making a blog postΒ takes a fair bit of time and resources. Quite frankly, those belong with myΒ neglected work-in-progress. It’s for that reason I will publish the four posts still in the wings, and then exit stage left.

And if you believed the thrust of the above impassioned paragraphs, may I suggest you don’t know The Tart very well.* πŸ˜‰

Happy April Fool’s day, peeps!!!

Go on. *nudge nudge* How many of you did I get? You can select more than one option in the poll below.

*The first clue should have been the concept of me being four posts ahead. Please.

  1. Medeia, he’s a reprisal from about eight months ago. A favorite. πŸ˜‰

    Dee, don’t feel bad. I’d forgotten the day’s significance myself until I went to AW and saw the titles on the message board. You are just an honest person at heart; that’s a wonderful state of existence.

  2. I was perplexed because I know you LOVE the community we’ve developed. So if you did need a break, you’d cut back on posts, not quit altogether, so I didn’t buy it. πŸ™‚

  3. Hope,

    I’m easily fooled, so my heart sank! I am one of those that reads very few blogs, let’s say two, yours and Charli’s….so I wasn’t happy for that second it took me to scroll down and find out it was your way of pulling a fast one on me. LOL I look forward to reading your blogs!!!

    Happy April Fool’s Day!!!

  4. Jess, your skepticism is warranted. Barring something completely unforseen, that’s exactly what I’d do — cut back, not quit. And I’m glad you feel part of this community.

    Jody, hee. Hope you can forgive me. πŸ˜‰ Not everyone thinks April Fool’s jokes are fun. I figure I can probably do this only once, so why not go for it?

    Sugar, I don’t think you’re the only one. πŸ˜‰ And thank you! Me too. πŸ™‚

  5. You naughty thing!

    And you too, Hope. LOL

    I was so totally distracted by the visual aid, it didn’t really hit me what you were saying until I got to the April Fool’s part. LOL Thank goodness my brain was a couple steps behind!

    I’m glad you’re staying around. πŸ™‚ And it wouldn’t break my heart if your um, mascot, stopped by more often too!

  6. Also, I think it’s a testament to my ridiculous adoration of my hubs, but shower dude got a cursory glance, nose sniff, and “ew” as I scampered on to reading the post.

    Aren’t I cute and innocent like that? Yes. Yes I am.

  7. Donna, glad you enjoyed him. Sometimes a person has to stick with a classic. πŸ˜‰

    Jess, LOL, even though I’m Canadian, I think I’ll plead the Fifth on that comment.

    Becke, what did Monica do? I’m off to FB to find out.
