Thinking About Ending My Blog

November 9th, 2017 at 12:31 pm

The idea to stop my blog came to me last night. I'm not exactly sure why, other than I feel like I write the same things. But then again, maybe there are readers (lurkers) who want me to keep writing. If you are truly getting motivation from my blog, I'd love to hear from you, particularly if you are just lurking (not a regular commenter or blogger). What content do you like, what would you like to see more of?

I'm not leaving yet. I will let you know if I do.

    It is certainly up to you whether you wish to leave. I just enjoy hearing about everyone else's lives. Yes, finance is at the core of our stories, but I like to hear all kinds of stories. I enjoy just getting a sense of the person behind the blog. I hope that you will continue.

  2. Petunia 100 Says:

    I enjoy reading your blog very much. Smile

    Best wishes to you, whatever you decide.

  3. TurtleLover Says:

    I have been reading here and barely commenting for years. I do understand that sometimes it's hard to write when there is nothing "new" to say... but if you went away I would miss you. I'm not awake enough to think about what sort of things I like best as my memory isn't all that great... and I need coffee... if I don't reply now I'll probably forget. But yes I just want you to know that if you went away you would be missed.

    I like to see the detailed progress recorded in these blogs. The most spectacular turnaround on this forum in my opinion around is CeeJay's, but your documenting your savings achievements has probably inspired some folks that read your blog. I also think these blogs serve as a record for the writers of what they actually did and when.

  5. Butterscotch Says:

    I read all your posts. You have a really positive attitude that I look forward to. Even the posts you mind consider ho-hum are just cheery!

    I feel like I write the same things too,so I can see where you're coming from.
    I find your blog really motivating, especially with things like snowflakes and savings.

  7. Michele Says:

    I hope you stay CCF! I for one enjoy reading your blog I love the details you post (Especially college, since I have twins in college right now), the deals you get, the snowflakes.

    Your blog is one of my many fav's from this site. Please stay Smile

    I enjoy your blog! I don't always comment these days but I read most of the entries. That said, you should only do it if YOU are enjoying it and getting something out of it. My other blog has gone dormant because I wasn't feeling as passionate about it; I'll only start it up again if I feel like it'll add value to my life to do so. My blog here, on the other hand, is practically one of my tracking tools as well as a fantastic social circle.

    And thanks for the shout-out, AnotherReader!

    Oh and just from a sentimental standpoint, I still remember we bonded with a friendly competition to pay off a debt several years ago. That was fun. Smile

  10. Cassie Says:

    I hope you don't end it. I have no one in my personal life who shares my interest in saving & finances. I learn something from everyone here, if only a different perspective or approach. You bring value just by being yourself as does everyone here.

  11. starfishy Says:

    i love your blog! it's inspiring and interesting and i have enjoyed following your life over the years. i've learned a lot from you. i will also be curious how your financial choices shift as your girls graduate and move into their own lives and your husband retires (not sure when that is). I enjoy how drama-free your life is - not that it's perfect and i know you have the usual problems and issues that we all have, but I like the way that you are able to deal with your issues head on and move forward in a mature way. I will miss you if you stop writing, but hope that you leave the archives for reference! good luck whatever you decide. Smile

  12. Beawealthywarrior Says:

    I don't post as much as did in the past, but whenever I do come to this site, yours is one of the main blogs I read!

  13. rob62521 Says:

    I like reading your blog. I feel like most of us are friends and rejoice in the good, support when things are going badly, and just keep each going in the in-between.

  14. terri77 Says:

    I'm definitely repetitive & sporadic with my blog posts which is why I don't get many readers, but I keep coming back because I think it keeps me accountable & I enjoy following other blogs. Plus, it seems a shame to stop blogging after so many years here. I enjoy your blogs & I definitely hope that you continue sharing with us.

  15. crazyliblady Says:

    I would be sad if you left. I know you are doing so well, but I get inspiration from hearing you climbed up out of a hole of debt. But if you must go, I wish you well. Maybe I will read your other blog? What is the address?

  16. Dido Says:

    Hey, stay in for the sense of community--you're another one of the long-timers and you would be missed if you left!

  17. Amber Says:

    Hi CCFree
    I love your blogs, not to mention your sound advice for me. I appreciate you along with others keeping me on track, holding me accountable.

    I feel like I've been reading your blogs forever, like we're all family. I really would hate to see you go

  18. My English Castle Says:

    CCF! You do have a loyal following. I think we all fade in and out occasionally, but I love to see you stay.

  19. PatientSaver Says:

    I agree with what others here have said, but also, please do remember that the value of these blogs/forum is not just what readers think. Putting your thoughts on "paper" forces you to organize and articulate your thoughts, objectives, etc in a way you might not otherwise do, so I feel it serves a useful purpose in and of itself. I think of my blog as a kind of online diary that serves as a helpful record of my activities, financial and otherwise, over a long period of time. The bonus is that others can comment and offer input.

  20. MonkeyMama Says:

    I don't have anything to say that hasn't been said. (I think you bring a lot of value to the blogs, but I also wouldn't blog if I didn't feel like it, so it is what it is). But you can always slow down or just pop in once in a while.

    I haven't made any conscious decision to post so little lately, but I think it just happened because life is busy. I know everyone understands and people fade in and out over time.

  21. Tabs Says:

    Personally, I come and go from the blogs and the forums, but I still remember how supportive you are of me, and still continue to be. I also read your blog from time to time, along with others, though I rarely ever comment... uh mostly because I can't think of anything interesting to say most of the time.

    In any case, regardless of what you decide to do, just wanted to let you know that someone out there remembers you and is grateful of your presence here.

  22. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Chiming in here to say that your blog is one I make sure to read when I stop by - even if I don't always comment.

  23. Thrifty Ray Says:

    Hey now- whats this????

    hehe...I think we all feel like we run out of content from time to time. THats one reason I occasionally lag in the number of posts I make. Then, something will come up and I come back and post an update and get back in the groove until I lag again.

    Of course, it's up to you whether or not you continue, but your presence would be missed. Aside from your inspiring posts, you also provide great feedback in your replies.
