Dear Farmdoc’s Blog followers and readers
The first post on this blog was way back on 21 April 2008 . Three years ago tomorrow. Since then I’ve put up one new post each day. So today’s post is number 1,095. And for the time being at least, and maybe forever, the last post. There are three main reasons for this:
1. A post a day’s a big undertaking. For me anyway. I’ve enjoyed doing it. But in recent months it’s become more arduous. And less fun.
2. Last week I received some not-so-good health news. Currently I don’t know its full import. But whatever it turns out to be, I have much thinking to do. And I know I’ll think better without the pressure of a daily Farmdoc’s Blog post weighing on my mind.
3. Because of that news, Sweetheart Vivienne and I have decided to sell our Mole Creek property as soon as we reasonably can, and then move to Victoria near our darling ones. So we’re starting work on a new blog – as yet untitled – aiming to attract a purchaser. And most definitely I can’t maintain two blogs simultaneously.
In that first post I wrote that writing Farmdoc’s Blog would help me find out about myself ‘And if it also helps others, in however small a way, then that can only be a good thing’. I know I’ve achieved that first aim. The second one I don’t know about.
On 27 September 2009 I wrote a post about the Last Post. In a comment on it, darling Meg wrote ‘FD you gave me the fright of my life! I saw the words last post and I thought that you were henceforth taking leave from your blog’ .
Friends, the time’s come for me to take leave from this blog. I plan to put up one more Farmdoc’s Blog post in the next couple of months – when our new blog goes live. After then, who knows?
So there you have it.
Thank you for accompanying me on my journey.
P.S. I remain contactable at the email address in my Blogger profile.
