I haven't abandoned the blog, but I do have a confession: I'm not the most persevering person in the world, and I tend to get really passionate and excited about something for a while, then through obsessive over-saturation, I get bored and move on to something else. That is what has happened here, to some extent.
In addition, I started taking this blog in directions I didn't really intend for it to go. The political posts far outweigh the other content, and this was not meant to be a strictly political blog. I began to feel that if I covered current news and politics, there was no way I would have the time, desire or means to do it justice, therefore I should stop for a while. In addition, the excruciatingly long election cycle has been getting me down. I really can't stomach writing posts about what the candidates do or say every day for the next six months; I'll leave that to more capable minds.
What I would like to do is take this blog back to it's early days, with short thoughts about history, life, faith, and some of my own experiences. I'm not ready to resume just yet, as I really don't have any thoughts to share at this point, I'll be back later, and at a slower pace.
