Ice King, Adventure Time

Official Mega Media Monday Hiatus

First off, thanks for everyone's thoughts and prayers. I have spent a lot of time in meditation and have been looking through the Bible for answers and comfort, but what has helped most are the people I consider to be true friends who let me know that they wanted to help out however they could. One person in paticular has been there for me more than I deserve and I thank God every day that she is in my life.

Now for the hard part...well, for me at least. I have decided to stop Mega Media Mondays until furthur notice. The reason is several fold. I'm going to go ahead and put some blame on my readers for not sending me in ideas. The more weeks I go without some fresh idea, the harder it is for me to put together a cohesive entry. I've basically burned out of all of my favorite videos and have very few left in memory, so every week was becoming more of a chore. Also, school and work have seriously been taking up a big chunk of my time and once I am done with school I need to concentrate on finding a new means of employment, which will drain me of a lot of my free time. Also, I really haven't been putting my heart into the entries as of late, and its becoming more of a chore than it is something I want to do, and I hate for it to come across that way. It just isn't worth the effort I have been putting into it for 2-3 readers I have on here. I love you guys, but I have a blogging ego that really hasn't been stroked enough lately.

So am I giving Mega Media Mondays up for good? Right now I am taking a well-needed hiatus from them, yes. I am hoping to bring them back and when it does come back, it won't be every week at first. I wish I could say it would be more often than monthly but it really depends on life. I want to be more social with my friends (like the above mentioned one that I am thankful for) and I do need to move on with my life. So in other words you will still see Mega Media Mondays from time to time, I just can't promise that it will be every week or even every month. I'll do my best not to forget them, and I am sure I will pick it back up once it gets some recognition and once I get my life in order.

One more thing that has helped shape my decision is that I also want to just go back to basic blogging and not having to worry about letting someone down because I didn't get a feature up on time. I enjoy blogging about anime, games, and my life, and I just want to focus more on that than on something more artificial than a "feature". I know I would enjoy random blogging more than that.

So I'm sorry for that one person in Russia who looked forward to my Monday entries, but I just can't keep it up right now. If I had a blogging partner this would be the time I would shove it off on that person for a while, but I don't, so I can't. Again, this stems from lack of recognition and real life matters. I'm positive Mega Media Monday will return someday, it just may take a while for it to get back up to the steam it was at prior to this.

Thank you for your continued comments and support. Hopefully I will be back to blogging more regularly soon.
