Taking a Break and No More Questions

Hey all,

I'm sorry to tell you all this, but I'm taking a short break from posting, and when I return I don't plan on answering anymore questions (in the immediate future at least) . . . nor will I be farming out questions to other bloggers to answer. My apologies.

In the meantime, if you're looking for your questions to be answered, I highly encourage you to visit the comments on this thread. There are a lot of fantastic bloggers who would love to take your questions. Most have included contact information and are more than happy to help. If you're a blogger on that thread and want your contact information removed, please let me know, and I'll remove it. If you're willing to help, post your contact information and get on the question answering list! (I'm not going anywhere . . . BELIEVE ME, I'm not going anywhere . . . I'm just taking a break)

To those who have recently sent me questions, I may try to answer them back channel over e-mail, but please feel free to use other bloggers as you see fit. I know they'll get you the answers you're thirsting for!

If an important news item from Professor Greyrose comes across the news wire, I will most definitely be posting it up. You can count on that. I will be sure to add newcomers to Friendly's blogroll as I see them come in as well.

~~~~~~

So, why the break? Well, I need some time to reflect and contemplate a few things on this end. I'd also like to finish up some lingering things, like my work of Wizard101 fan fiction that I've been neglecting. Maybe throw down a few new remixes of music. I'd be lying if I didn't say there are some personal things that I need to clear up in my head as well. No worries. Nothing too serious. I just need to reflect and gain some perspective, deal with a bit of depression.

Again, my apologies to those who have come to visit the Friendly Necromancer website on a daily basis for news, information, and fun without much interruption. Regular posting will resume some time in the future, but for now I'm in need of some introspection. Hopefully when I return you will be reading a more energized necromancer!

Thanks for your understanding and patience,

Happy Dueling!

No problem Friendly, everybody is entitled to a break from time to time.

I appreciate what you bring to the Wizard101 game experience.

Take care of you and your wizard family.

Kevin BattleBlood said...

Take care, Tom, get it all sorted out. We'll be waiting for ya :)

Arlen Dawneyes said...

That is way more than understandable! I sometimes wonder how you keep up with your answering questions and things... my dad goes to a Monastery ( well, he's a pastor ) when he's in need of some "getting away", just an idea there. I even get a little anxious over blogging, and when school comes up you bet that won't help. And to everyone else: Like Fairydust said, I'd be happy to answer your questions too! My blog: twoheadedwizard.blogspot.com and e-mail: arlendawneyes@gmail.com. Oh, and try taking naps too Friendly, lol :D, my mom does that for 3 hours a day. Happy Farming!

Jessica said...

I know how you feel, sometimes you just run out of deil and need to relax to fill it up again. Have fun on your hiatus though!

Paige Frostflower said...

Hey Friendly,
I and all who have been with you for some time totally understand. You said that you were taking a break a while back and I noticed that it never happened. You deserve a well rested break. Over a year ago I had asked you, how you do it and I still wonder to this day how you do it all. It is called burn out my friend so please take a well deserved rest. I will miss reading your post every day but will look forward to your return :) We all thank you for all that you have given us in our mission to conquer the minions of the spiral. I do hope that you do not take a long hiatus on your story I so enjoy reading it. TAKE CARE FRIENDLY WE WILL ALL MISS YOU!

The most important thing is taking care of yourself first. Once things are back to a sane level then everything else will fall into place and life and whatever else won't seem so hectic. Good luck and do what you have to do, trust me, most of us will still be here. Take care and I hope things get better for you soon.

Tesh said...

Best wishes to ye, lad. Sometimes, a hiatus is just what the doctor ordered. :)

Here's hoping things go well for you and yours!
