Thanks for the memories

I want to first off thank Barb from Skittle's Place for offering a heart warming reward for my blog. What a pleasant surprise! Barb has been a positive force in the blogging community for a long time and it's a pleasure to know her and an honor to have been mentioned in her post about nice mattering, because it does.

As for Critique My Blog...over the years I've put alot of time and passion into critiquing blogs, but recently I've been neglecting the critiques, again, and it's mostly due to my new job. I recently started in a position that pulls in in a hundred directions and at night I am with my sons at Karate or Soccer or Basketball or swimming or whatever the case might be. The actual process of critiquing a blog takes alot of time and I put alot of thought into the words I write about he blogs I read. It's a draining process that I love, but can't continue. I am going to keep this blog active, but not in the same capacity as it was in the past. I am going to keep it as a personal blog to write my own thoughts and observations...I will continue to comment on other blogs and keep in touch with the blogging community, but in a new way. I need to be able to write with ease and a personal blog is easy...I can write my thoughts and opinions and activities almost effortlessly. I will also keep my pest control blogs because they also come easy as it is the profession I was in for the past 15 or more years. I know bugs.

I hope people understand this decision and as I said I will still comment and critique from time to time, but not as I used to. I hope to continue to impact the blogging world positively and continue with the relationships I've built in the blogging community. See you all around and keep on blogging!

I found your blog by accident and was curious. I think most bloggers have been faced with life competing with your online goals. I am intriqued by your blog and look forward to coming back in the future. Unfortunately, my computer wouldn't let me click on the submit blog link because my husband disabled my autoemail or something. Anyway, I'm off to explore more ...

You know, Billy.. I was thinking something like this was going on since I'd check back and not really see anything new. (Of course real life has to come first.)

I will look forward to reading your new blog posts!

What about poor ol' Ted? ;)

You know, I was wondering when you'd decide to jump the bandwagon and do the personal blog thing, rather than critique blogs. I'm a little sad, as I really enjoyed discovering new blogs but...I'm excited about your new direction and getting to know who Billy Mac is. Good luck.

oops, I just asked if you'd critique my blog in another comment, but now I see you're scaling back - No worries. :)

I've enjoyed your critiques and I'm sure I'll enjoy more personal posts from you too. Thanks for all the fun and interesting critiques you've done (including mine:D)

I always enjoy your posts and was so grateful to have you critique my blog...yes, I think we all have real life issues that take us away from blogging form time to time. But I will so enjoy seeing more of a personal blog from you. You write so very well and have a keen mind and
sharp intellect.
Thank you for all you have done to support blogging...enjoy your new direction!
