I borrowed the title from a former blogger's last post from a few years back. The picture though is mine from right after the Nashville flood back in 2010. Always thought it was very tranquil.
After running TNR for almost five years I've decided to take a hiatus. Over the years TNR has been many things and I've enjoyed the evolution for the most part. Recently though it's become less the site I'd originally envisioned and almost a chore. Just to keep things going I've continued running the movie discussion each week which is, quite frankly, sort of the opposite of the original purpose of TNR. When you're writing just because you don't want to give up on the work you've put into something and not because it's enjoyable, it's time to take a step back.
I can't say for sure how long of a break I'll be taking. I plan on at least a couple months so I can write just for me again. I'll also be thinking about whether or not I want to revamp this site or possibly start fresh from the ground up. Maybe I'll team up with some other bloggers so that things stay more interesting next time.
Whatever the case I have no plans to take TNR down at the moment. I've put a lot of work and love into it and I'll probably
steal from it revisit it later on.
I also want to thank all of you who have read and followed, commented, and connected with me elsewhere. Whether it be from the beginning, or more recent, you guys have made the experience a lot of fun. I hope to connect with you all again, if not here than through whatever project I take up in the future.
For now, I break. Who knows, maybe I'll be back in a week with something new, or maybe, I'll just really get into fishing.
