Rebecca's taking an indefinite break from blogging

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I started a new job in August 2010. It's a challenging, exciting, and thoroughly satisfying position, however, I am left with little to no time for my family. I have made the decision to cease commentary on News N Economics at this time.

I see this as an indefinite pause. Perhaps, though, at one point I may be able to dedicate time to my career and blogging simultaneously once again.

Thank you all for reading and providing feedback. It is the dedicated readership that keeps a blogger going.

Best regards, Rebecca

Hi Rebecca - very understandable and hope to see you back someday. Meanwhile I also hope that the site will not be taken down, as many items on the blog list still make a daily visit to your site imperative!

you will be missed. unlike most blogs (even ones i try to follow), your posts are always well thought out and thought provoking. with each post, i knew i was going to learn something new about the world. really sad to see you go; your new employer is very lucky to have you.

I've have rarely if ever posted comments on any blog. However, I feel compelled to respond to this post. I have gained much from your perspective and wish you the best in your new position and in the difficult task of balancing career and family. I hope to read more of your analysis in the future. Until then, I wish you the best of luck.

Your blog will be missed!  Thanks for your insightful commentary and analysis, and best of luck.

Well, thank you all! I appreciate the feedback! I feel a little bit like a retiree who is having a tough time retiring. The break is needed - we'll see how long it lasts.

Best regards, Rebecca

Just read about your indefinite break --your blog was a respected and respectful island of sanity in an ocean of noise, especially in this climate of uncertainty.  Best of luck and I look forward to your return some day should you so wish.

Hope you will give it another go next year.  We miss you at Angry Bear. 

Merry Christimas,
