Hiatus For Caffeinated Politics, Will Return This Summer
Since July 2006 Caffeinated Politics has blogged almost every day. There are over 8,000 posts on this blog that have garnered over 2.9 million hits. But for the next six months Caffeinated Politics will be taking a break so I can concentrate on another writing project to which I want to give my full attention.
For a number of years I have wanted to write a book. Not about politics, but instead about life. Some of the topics I have written about before, but there are others that are rather personal which are left untold. Once passing the 50-year mark last summer I knew this project had to gain steam, and move forward.
A friend asked me tonight over dinner at The Weary Traveler who my audience will be for the book. I commented that I write for myself as it is something I need to do. If anyone else is amused or entertained by the end result than all the better. That is not a selfish statement, but just how I feel.
I have worked on the book in bits and pieces for some time, but now will devote all my energies to the project. Given what I have completed, and where I want to head I suspect my project will be completed by the end of July. With a new laptop computer I can also work outdoors once the warm spring days return.
I am not sure what it will feel like to read the newspapers or watch the news and not place my opinions and views on this blog. I am reminded that when I first tried to give up coffee years ago I had horrible headaches. I am hoping for less hardship with a no blogging rule.
As I sign off for a few months there is a question I have for my readers.
How many unconstitutional moves will be taken by Governor Scott Walker in my absence?
