Sometimes I like to pretend that this is a really “high traffic” website/blog and I’m a highly followed/sought after Z-list celebrity who commands the kind of respect that transforms their fans to openly sobbing, shivering lifeless masses of uncooked, limp turkey gizzards… but alas I am not.
So… this post is written in such a way to make it seem as though I’m the Justin Bieber of the blogosphere and you all are my sobbing, shivering lifeless masses of uncooked, limp turkey gizzards hanging on every word I type.
“Hey there. I’m kind. I’m sensitive. I like to wear high-top shoes and barely be able to see through my hair. I’m awesome yet have not undergone the turmoils of puberty yet so time will tell on how I look after all that. Who are you?”
“Sure sweetheart. Anything for my fans. You’re what make me who I am!”
“AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HE ACTUALLY RESPONDED TO MY QUESTION!! I THINK I’M HAVING A BRAIN ANEURYSM!!
Anyway, the purpose of this post is just to let you know that I’m taking a break. I tend to have an addictive personality with things and with this blog I am no different. It get’s to a point where I’m actually up until 2AM typing posts and/or letting my car wander into oncoming lanes of traffic while I ponder on things I can do to improve this little slice of heaven you’re reading. I’m not really sure why I “addict” myself to certain things… perhaps it’s the potential in this blogging thing to eventually get paid by somebody! Not for blogging per se… but for writing in general. This blog helps me hone my skill, get my name out there and meet cool people like all you guys.
I just need a breather and I can’t think of a better time to do it during my favorite time of year: Christmas. Christmas while I was growing up was good… not great. Most of the time I’d mark up the JCPenny gift catalogue with a highlighter and post-it notes only to find on Christmas day I’d received nothing I’d wanted, but rather things my father picked out that would “teach me something”.
Now, as a father to a two-year-old and husband to a smokin’ hot wife, I make the damn rules around here and everyone gets what they ask for… and a little more.
While I chose to take some time off, I also chose to do some things to keep your Papa K interest peaked:
1. I’ll use it to possibly upgrade the site. I bought my own URL a while back so I’m ready to get creative with the backdrop.
2.Also, while I’m on winter break, I will be doing some guest posting. If you want to know when those will be then follow me on Twitter or “like” my Facebook page. I’m a Twitter and Facebook junkie so if you’ve ever got a question for me then you’ve got a good chance I’ll respond on one or the other. Or… if you don’t have either Twitter or Facebook feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put you on my email list.
3. I plan on posting ONE post during my break regarding Jackon, the young man I wrote about a little while back who died from a form of brain cancer, and my quest to raise some money this Christmas in search for a cure to the cancer that took him so early. So be on the look out for that.
In closing, I ain’t the “Justin Bieber of the blogosphere” unfortunately… I’m just “some dude” who has “another blog” on the “internet” who wants to take a “couple weeks” off to enjoy “the” Christmas holiday. I want you to know this in case some of you concerned fans out there might think I went off and lost myself in the Rocky Mountains or something.
Thanks for being my bloggy buddies. Talk to you all very soon!
