Blog is Dead

A recent comment on our last post:

Okay, it's been a month since this blog and still no new blogs. I'm beginning to feel like I'm looking at a photo at a funeral. Blow this picture up, slap an ornate gold frame around it, put it on a stand, throw some flowers around it, and listen to the speaker say, "Ben and Monica were outgoing and happy people who were never too busy to share their adventures with their avid blog readers. They will be missed, but let us find solace in their memories."? Add some quiet sobbing and plenty of sniffles for ambience and we've got ourselves a blog funeral.

My response:

Funny you write that--you are very perceptive. We are in the process of ending this blog because of our busyness. We are planning a big funeral for it soon because, let’s face it, “Blog is Dead.” When something starts feeling like a chore or a job, it loses some of its importance. More than likely we will end the blog this August after our fifth wedding anniversary with a picture of us in a Jamaican sunset. We are still happy and outgoing, and have fallen prey to a busy DINK (dual income no kids) life. We are in the process of finding a way to print the entire blog in color so we don’t lose some wonderful memories. It has been a good run, and I am even a little choked up as I write this. Life after this summer will all be summed up in a one-page Christmas letter. Perhaps this will spur me on to put up a few more good entries for all you loyalists.
