Obviously, since my last post was about 6 weeks ago, blogging has moved down on my list of “must do’s. I’ve thought a lot about what I want to do going forward – managing new/other responsibilities, as well as the fact that I sometimes feel I don’t have any new experiences to write about. The most straightforward solution would be to simply stop altogether. Maybe the blog has served its purpose (I still get a lot of inquiries about moving to Venezuela even when I’m not updating regularly), and it’s time to move on. I know that it’s inevitable, but I’m still not there, yet.
What I’ve realized during my hiatus is that microblogging is much more conducive to what I’ve got going on now. When I first moved to Venezuela there was so much learning and adjusting that I could talk about and
unfortunately, I’m all adapted now. However, I tweet somewhat frequently and I post pictures somewhat regularly on Instagram, Facebook, etc. So, what I was thinking is that I would stop blogging here and I would limit my activity to writing snippets, as that’s how the experiences seem to unfold anyway, on the aforementioned outlets.
I’m not going to take down the site altogether because judging from the majority of visits, I think there is a lot of useful information that potential expatriates come across when searching for daily life in Caracas. I will also continue to respond to questions that I receive via e-mail, as well as comments on here. For now.
I’m very proud of all that I’ve put into this blog and more that I’m grateful for the interactions/relationships that it has fostered. Who knows, there may be some huge change in my future that will bring me back to writing about transitions and all that, but for the time being we’re all very settled. That is a good thing and I’ll remember that next time I start to get restless This isn’t a goodbye, but more of a see ya around.
