We now interrupt this regularly scheduled blog...

Confession: This post has been a long time coming.

Until further notice, "Mental Poo" is going on a hiatus.

This is a really hard paragraph for me to write because I know there are a LOT of you out there who may be new readers or faithful fans and followers.

To those of you who have been with me for the last OHMYGOD 6 years or so of this blog, I'm sure you've noticed that - well - it's just not the same around here any more. The stories have turned to pictures. There is very little text.

I think, in large part, it's because I'm just not feeling funny here any more.

Back when I started this blog, I had a lot of stories to tell. A LOT of them. And I told them in a shitty style with bizarre pictures and people came and read and laughed.

That doesn't happen much any more. I think the fact that the blog is a dying art, and I've turned my attention to writing books, is a major part of that. PLUS, I have an actual REAL job that I'm trying to keep - so finding the time and material to do this is getting more difficult.

Truth be told, there is a LOT going on in my personal life that I DON'T put out on Twitter or Facebook or this blog. Everyone has their demons to deal with, and mine are sapping my desire to write on a daily or even weekly basis.

Once upon a time I wrote SO MUCH that I was scheduled out with posts 4 months in advance. Right now, I have 3 posts that were scheduled.


I start my mornings tired. I go through my day mentally exhausted. My nights are sleepless. My stress and anxiety is off the charts. There is so much I wish I could tell you, but I can't. Depression? Probably. Anxiety? Definitely. Stress? Oh fuck yes.

Suffice it to say, my wife is amazing and supportive and I'm lucky to have found her. But there's so much more going on that even she feels the stress and strain of it all.

So, until things - hopefully - start taking a turn for me, I'm going to need to focus on getting myself back in order.

That will probably take some time.

Please note that I am STILL on Twitter and Facebook (you can find the links on the side) and have managed to move most of my funny over to those mediums because I have a short attention span and like chocolate.

You can also check me out on Amazon - where I currently have 2 best selling comedy books and 3 more in the works. No shit.

That said, I'm closing up shop here for a while, but PLEASE KNOW that I love each and every one of you.

Except you, Jim, from Accounting. I still think you're an asshole.

Moog out.

I hope things get better, Rodney

I do understand how life's stresses zap the funny out of you, though.

Truth be told, I have been following you more on FB lately,which is what sent me to this post.

I am looking forward to your next book.

Jim from accounting IS an asshole. But that said, as long as you're still on Twitter and Facebook I suppose I can deal with this development.

Unfortunately, I think people are much less into reading blogs because they're too busy talking about how busy they are, but I still plug away...I need SOMEWHERE to vent that isn't my job and no one will pay me to write more books yet. But I get it, which is also why I love Twitter and Facebook. You can throw crap out there without having to form WHOLE PARAGRAPHS!

Anyway, I will still stalk. Carry on.

Hope things improve for you soon. Sorry to hear they are so awful for you now. Take care of yourself.

Tough to read, but I do understand. I'm not posting much anymore, just read other post. I'll stick with ya on FB. I haven't tweeted in years.

You don't owe anybody anything. You are right to attend to yourself.

Thanks for making life a little lighter for us.
