This hiatus just got REAL
Monday, January 26, 2009   10:26 PM

I've had a lot of other stuff on my mind lately. Nothing bad. But I haven't had the inclination to update here or to read the several months' worth of language blog posts I've already missed.

I'm not sure when I'll be posting again; it won't be for another couple months at the very least. The Language is the People's RSS feed will not change in the meantime.

I'm just going to let the "language" tab on my own RSS reader lie fallow, so if you subscribe to my language links on delicious, don't expect many additions. And if you run one of the language blogs I've been a fan of in the past, don't expect me to be commenting on your site for a while.

For the time being this hiatus is indefinite, but there'll be another post sometime in the next six months (at the absolute latest) to let you know what the deal is.

Just wanted to say I hope things are well with you and that you'll feel like resuming the blog one day.


Really informative, thanks a lot for sharing it !
