I have written this blog for four months and it has been a very beneficial experience. It has also been at times a draining experience, trying to combine writing the blog with my day job, other issues of day to day living, and taking care of my self physically and mentally. When I left academia I didn't explain to others what I was feeling then or why I left. That is part of the need I felt with this blog, to explain myself to some extent. Now it feels like a good time to take a break.
