Big Break From Blogging

I’m thinking I will only do one post a month for a while. Maybe for the next 6 months or longer. I am at the point where blogging does not feel fulfilling to me. I do all this work, cataloging and updating and posting and putting myself out there for the world, and I am getting very little from it.

I am working overtime it seems, to try to make some sort of impact and it is not getting me anywhere fast. I need to take care of the rest of my life and live it rather than write about it. The blog is something that I started trying to get over difficulties and it seems it has become a difficulty all of its own. I am not really able to focus on one topic for any amount of time and I feel this makes for a difficult read.

I hope to spend my time finishing projects and taking the time to enjoy life.

2016 is a year of completions numerologically (2+0+1+6=9) so I think it best to finish things. I have so many projects started and so much to try and figure out in terms of my work life that I just need more time to get things done. Time that is eaten up while trying to post daily and be productive in front of the world. I prefer my privacy most times and I just need a break from the work of blog posting. It is too much for me to try to get it all done AND post daily or almost daily.

I don’t want to give up completely on this part of my career (the blogging) so I will try to post at least once a month starting in January.

Maybe after my certification for card reading is finished, I will feel drawn to posting readings, but it feels like I may be needed somewhere else. (?)

I have printed out some of the work I did on my card decks to get an idea of how the finished card decks will look, so I will post that in my January post. I am not sure how much the future posts will show until I get to it, but I do hope to have some pictures and updates. I like this format better for now, but I am prone to changing my mind drastically from one day to the next.

For now, it seems it is best for me to enjoy life and get things done on my own time. I’m sorry if this comes as a shock, but it is for the best really. I will be able to get things done that people can actually enjoy and I will be able to produce better quality work from a more happy point of view. I am sorry to write this around the holidays, but there you have it.

I’m done with comic strips and angel books for now. I have plans on continuing more with my abstract and illustration work rather than AMOL. The blog just does not have the payoff I am looking for and I am just not able to keep up with all of the work I am doing while blogging at the same time (especially with little results). Maybe I will get a job of some sort.

I have enjoyed my time posting here, but I need to slow down with it and focus on the rest of my life.


Happy Holidays everyone and I hope you understand my point of view. Please stay updated on the monthly posts by following along on email. I may post some instagram photos from time to time, so feel free to follow me on instagram @timmerman222

  1. You need to do what works for you, Tim. I’m a bit of a lurking reader these days, with posting down to an occassional reblog when it strikes a chord. Will miss your updates, but sure everyone understands the need to find focus.
    Enjoy the holidays. And here’s to many completions in 2016. 🙂

  2. Seems like many of us are feeling the same things….too many things on the go at one time, makes for tiredness and frustration. I too have slowed down on the blogging, I will blog when spirit moves me to do so…when that happens, there is a very good reason why and I feel the people who are meant to see the blog will be drawn to it. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas Tim, I appreciate what you do, being an Angel person myself 🙂 I am still going to get your cards, after the Christmas season.
    Take Care, Merry Christmas Tim.
