Thank You and Goodbye...

Dear Haley's Happenings readers,

     First off I would like to give a big thank you to all my followers. Thanks for being so great and for the many, many comments you've left me since I first started this blog. It's definitely made blogging more fun. Y'all are really great followers! :)

     Having said that I would like to apologize for being such a horrible blogger these past few months. To tell you the truth,  blogging has just become more of a duty than an enjoyable hobby. Posting has become something I feel obligated to do instead of want to do. It's seriously no fun anymore and I just don't have time for it. And I believe my time here on Blogger has come to an end. As of tonight I am officially quitting blogging.

     This is something I've been thinking about for about a month, it's not some spur of the moment decision. It's a little sad leaving Blogger. I mean, I've been blogging for two and a half years and it's been really fun. I've met new friends and gotten new pen pals through Blogger. It's been a great experience.

     I'll keep my blog up for a couple of weeks after posting this, just to make sure everyone sees this. And I'll keep my Blogger account. I still want to keep up with all y'all's blogs and stuff, I just don't want to have a blog myself.

     Again, thank you for following and commenting. I really will miss getting new followers and looking at your lovely comments. And, who knows, I may start another blog sometime. I'm not saying goodbye forever, just for now.

     Your  friend,
                Haley

I’m so sorry you’re not blogging anymore! I do understand how sometimes you feel obligated to blog for your followers, not because you necessarily want to.
I hope you come back someday!

xo,
Leah

Aww, I'm sorry to see you go dear! :( YOu and Lindsay were some of the first girls to welcome Jessica and I to blogging and some of teh first blogging friends we made! :) But I understand, and I'll be praying for you as you continue to follow God's leading in your life! :D

I hope you'll still stop by from time to time on Young Homemakers and say hi! :)

Lot's of love and Hugs! :D
All God's best!

Awww...so many people seem to be stopping...forever or for now. I hope you'll come back! I can understand how it can become a chore in some ways though. I hope you have a lovely day! Sierra

I'm quite sad that you're leaving blogging but I understand you feeling. I've enjoyed following your blog while you've been going. You and your sisters were among the first of my followers and I want to thank you for the comments you've left at my blog over the past few years.

God Bless,
Miss Laurie :)

You will be missed.

Tawnee said...

*cries* I'll miss you, but I totally understand the part of blogging feeling like a chore. I'll miss your blog, but I'm glad you'll still have an account.

Hi Haley!

I'll miss your blog - I've enjoyed reading your posts, and you've done a great job with it! But I completely understand about not having time for it and all that.

I am sorry that I have not commented before, but thought that I should add a little something before you shut down your blog.

God bless you!
Love, Your Pen-friend,
Patienc Charles
