I’d like to introduce a new rule for the Internet: don’t disappear.
It’s more than fine to take a break. I’ve done so myself in certain situations.
It’s totally okay to cut back on how often you show up, what you share, or who you share it with.
But don’t disappear.
Not completely, anyway.
Keep someone updated on where you’re going if you go away.
We worry about you otherwise. 🙂
I disappear when I go out of the country. For morbid reasons really. If I should shuffle off this mortal coil while travelling I don’t want Secular Wings left open. So I go into private mode until I return home safely. Of course, I could step off my driveway and be terminated permanently and there SW’s would be, wide open forever and ever. Oh well.
There’s not a day go by, that I don’t think about disappearing permanently. That’s an inner struggle. Don’t take it personally. 🙂 (P.S.) I finally found my login for Disqus. It disappeared for awhile. 🙂
Your reasons make sense. It’s good to hear from you again.
