When is there to much love? When are there to many people following your blog? When do you have to much interaction?
I think about this question because someone that I’ve come to enjoy interacting with has said, “Enough!”
Granted, it wasn’t said to me specifically, but this wonderful person put up a blog post about how she is disengaging from the WoW Twitter community. She has had so much interaction, both positive and negative, that she hasn’t had the space necessary to do what she wants to do with her blog. She wants to delve more deeply into every aspect of her life, and it seems that WoW has come to take up to much space.
Not that she is quitting WoW, thank goodness. She is limiting her interactions, so that she has the space to be fully herself. Hopefully, this will lead to more productive blogging about the things she cares about most (WoW included).
At least, this is my interpretation of her post.
I’ve come to similar situations before. These are times when I need to go isolate myself in my man-cave. It is supposed to be one of those stereotypical, maybe even archetypal, man traits.
I’m saying this blogger is overly Manly! Oh my gosh, don’t be a noob.
What I’m saying is that I understand the perceived need to disconnect to be fully whole.
To my (dare I say) friend:
I’m so sorry if my own interaction has driven you to this. I’m so sorry if my actions have brought any discomfort in your life. I appreciate you and your hubby bear, and I wish you the best.
Count me in as one of those that have subscribed to your blog, just hoping for the day that it pops up again in my reader.
I’m not going to email/IM/contact you in any other way outside of the game. Just know that I care for you and your family. May you get the space you need, to be who you were created to be.
Your friend, and part-time pocket meat-shield…
