Incessant Barking

Regular readers will remember the Idiots With Guns series and they may have also noted a dwindling of Pawn Shop Circuit posts over the past couple of months. I'm slowing down on the blog. It seems as though it is just incessant barking. The struggle to post at least once a day is gone. Perhaps I should just post when inspired.

Hey guys, there's a lot of good stuff in the archives, go look! I'm taking a break for a while.

Everybody experiences burnout from time to time. I'm in one of those periods myself.

Take a break. Come back when YOU feel like it. It's not like somebody's paying you, after all.

Bummer. I enjoyed your blog. The pawn shop circuit allowed me to buy a lot of guns and not spend a dime, lol.

I'll check back in from time to time for your next post. Enjoy your hiatus.

Everyone needs to take a break now and then.

However, it seems to me that the only way to combat the incessant lies and stupidity of those who would take our freedom is to incessantly bark the truth.

I always look forward to reading your blog. Take a break, and I'll look forward to your return. I'm sure others feel the same.

See you when you get back!

And just when I'm about to pick up the Idiots with Guns slack on my own.

I'm sorry to hear that Xavier because i really enjoy your posts. However i would rather have inspired posting as opposed to you just going through the motions. And as you mentioned theres a ton of good stuff in the archives. I often find myself rummaging through them to learn more about guns and i'd have to say that its really helpful/informative/entertaining. So take care of yourself and hope to hear from you soon.

I'll keep checking for your posts.

Your pawnshop posts reminded me of that missed opportunity and got me to looking around locally at pawns.

Picked up a sweet 870 for my son at half going rate for the local market(San Diego). I owe you for that.

Go love on your family a little, you deserve it, and so do they.

I'll always say, post what you want, when you want.

I'll keep looking, but that's because I don't want to miss what you say.

May you have fair winds, and following seas, shipmate!

I think it was Sailor Curt who summed it up nicely. Blogging is not a contest. You should blog what you want, and when you want, and not let your blog become a job. When you start getting burned out, back off for a while and take a short break. If you do a short post every once in a while just to let us know you're OK, though, that would be good.

Why not come to Reno for the Gun Blogger Rendezvous and hang out with a bunch of gun bloggers for afew days in October? We'd all enjoy meeting (and shooting) with you!!

Xavier, I concur with the above comments. You've got a great blog and I've learned a lot from it. I look forward to you posting as and when you see fit.

Xavier,

Thanks for having shared so much of yourself with me and the world. I really enjoy reading your thoughts on the variety of issues you cover.

Enjoy your hiatus. I, like others who have commented before me, want nothing more for you than for you to enjoy blogging. It is a purely selfish motive, because we get to see the best of you.

I pray you will enjoy your down time between posts as much as I will enjoy reading what you have to say.

God bless,
Steve
