There comes a time in many blog’s life when real life gets too busy for a full-time hobby. We’re not making any money from this, so there’s no incentive to let the hobby become unpleasant. Sorry to have disappointed you, CPP, but the blog just isn’t a priority compared to our academic work, families, new hobbies, etc.
So we will be moving from six days a week to erratic updating. Just like most academic bloggers. (Or maybe we’ll just drop Thursdays… it’ll be like one of those Skinner boxes where you either have to sign up for an RSS feed or come back at random intervals/press the lever to find out.)
The one of us who is a mother will be cutting off mothering blogs. She’s really tired of being told that she’s not allowed to be happy (or that she’s a deluded liar) and no longer has enough energy to fight the patriarchy on this subject. Especially when people are being told it’s their feminist right to be miserable and to bring all other women down with them. Whatever. It’s my feminist right to let them bring each other down and ignore it. Putting on my own mask and making sure I’m on a different plane than the anti-mask people.
We will try to keep up the Monday Money posts, and we got a lot of good questions for Ask the Grumpies Fridays. So not a complete disappearance!
