"Blogging seems so huge now. Tons of people are jumping in hoping to make it rich. Is anyone burning out on it?

No more blogging

I am giving up blogging! It seems like everyday someone asks me to write about something they want instead of something that I want to do. I must get 20 emails every day like that.

My life is so public! Everyone knows what I eat, how much I exercise, what my girlfriend likes and hates. It's just too personal.

I got into it because I thought I could make good money and I do OK. I have a decent house and a couple of cars, my baby is going to go to a great college and I get a couple of vacations per year (Read more about my last vacation here)

Far too often I have lunch by myself. Alone on the back porch looking at the lonely mountains.

All I want is a simple Nine to Five with a lunch hour and people to talk to.
Thanks for considering me.
