I think I am done. Thanks.

Blogging has been a big part of my life over the last 5 years.. I have gotten to know many interesting people. I have made friends. I have made enemies.

I have never posted consistently, but instead have chosen to comment…a lot. I am actually a very passive and mild person. While blogging, I have developed a voice. Actually, many voices…possibly more than there are in my head.

After 4 years with BYU-Idaho and this past year at BYU, I am moving on to a permanent position as a public community college. I am excited for a new start. Most of all, I am excited for the stability that this position will bring to my family.

I have been trying to figure out how Mormon blogging and the Bloggernacle will fit into my new phase of life. What I have decided is that they will not.

Instead, I should write a dissertation. Maybe an article or two. I think I will blog, but I am not sure about what.

I have quit the Bloggernacle once before. That time I was angry. Now I am at peace.

    Ah, the dissertation has slain many a blogger.
    It’s good to be at peace.

    I’m wondering how heading back to school full-time will effect my blogging next month… and from there on out. Best wishes, Chris.

    It’s truly our loss, Chris, but I completely understand the rationale.

    Now to go work on my thesis…

    I think this is sad news. I think your voice is a good and valuable one, even if it’s one that doesn’t always resonate with me. I hope you find time to stop by from time to time.

    I’m so very happy for you and your academic position though. That is fantastic.

    Getting out of Utah will do that to a man.

    “even if it’s one that doesn’t always resonate with me”

    I think I gave up on resonating and that is what brought me to this.
