Questing GM Going on Hiatus

If you noticed that for the past two weeks, I haven't been doing any updates and all the weekly features that should be up are not. As to all my readers, I truly and sincerely apologize if you were expecting a more timely update. I'm not trying to make any excuses, especially to datelines that I set for myself for my readers but I've been going through some rather hard times of late.

I wouldn't normally take this place to talk about my problems but I've decided that I owe everyone, at least, an explanation for my sudden absence.

Some of you may have noticed from my Twitter several weeks ago that I've cut my internet connection recently due to horrible connection problems which has greatly affected my accessibility and time that I can spend going online on a daily basis. I'm sure that I've missed out a lot of what's happening in the past weeks, not only at Wizards but also in the RPG Bloggers Network. Catching up (if I ever intend on doing that) will take some time.

However, I've managed to find a solution, in between the weeks, that would hopefully put me back online on a more regular basis.

But more importantly, which I believe is the greatest cause of the sudden drop and lack of updates, is that I'm going through gaming and blogging delirium. It's something that every gamer and blogger goes through at some point and after religiously blogging about gaming for the past year almost without stop, I'm quite surprised that it has only hit me now rather when everyone gets discouraged in the first few months of starting their own blog.

I'm starting to have doubts about my own content and effort in producing them which are starting to deviate from the purpose of this blog. I have to rethink and reevaluate the direction of this blog and where I'm going with this.

As of now, the Questing GM is going to be on hiatus. Every adventurer needs some downtime to go through some character development, when not hacking at monsters for XP and treasure.

How long will I be away? I can't really give a good estimate. I could be bouncing back next week, next month or, god forbid, next year. I just some time to regather my thoughts on what am I doing and take care of the other more important things in my real life. I might still chime in once in a while, just to say a thing or two but they won't be on a fixed schedule.

I'm very sorry to disappoint you all but I'm really grateful to all my readers, the RPG Bloggers Network, my followers in Twitter and the gaming community for making this a good run while it lasted.

Hopefully I will see you all again very soon. Perhaps in a new incarnation.

For now, I bid you all sweet water and light laughter, until we next meet.

I'm sorry to hear that you're going on hiatus. Still, real life trumps gaming in all equations. Take your time, rest a bit, and I'll see you online when you're able.

Take care and keep gaming!
