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.

    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.

    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.
