Just so you know.

I turned down the writing job. I was ready to take it, but then I let the idea marinate a little more and it just wasn't the right fit. Getting paid to write something that I would probably write here for free would have been awesome, but I just could not commit to everything they were asking for.

You've probably noticed my lack of posting and commenting recently. I want you to know that I am still reading anything that comes through Diabetes Daily and even a few that don't. I also think about writing here often, but I haven't had the energy to do so. I'm currently dealing with some mental health issues (I'll fill you in when I feel a little more comfortable) that have been consuming every facet of my life. Until things get back into a more normal pattern I probably won't be posting much, but I am here and available via email if you need me. I just thought I should let you know what was going on because you have been supportive in the past and I don't want to leave you all in the dark. So that's that.

Hi Jillian,

I understand exactly where you are coming from. I've also recently taken a long break from blogging and commenting. I don't think you need to excuse it or explain it though. Participation in the community through reading or posting or commenting is something you do for you, and it isn't mandatory. Of course, I do enjoy reading your posts though!

Hope the mental health issues are not too serious, and that everything else is going ok.

Take care

Jillian, sorry to hear that you are doing some hard travelin' at the moment. I hope things improve for you soon.

I hope that you get through whatever it is before too long.

I've tried writing another blog with my own and the DiabetesDaily one. I'm still not able to do that effectively. So I think you made the right choice. It's one thing if you're making money but I think that would change your perspective and how you blog. At least that's what I think. Though sometimes I dream of giving up the day job.

Anyway, best wishes for better days ahead. God bless.
