#SierraNevada Tumbler has arrived! It’s the most magical season of all! (starring @brianamatopoeia) #beer #vons #duckwalk #runninginheels
Normally around this time on Monday evenings, I sit at my desk and pull out all the good parts to the Disney bloggers’ obligatory Monday updates, link some appropriate photos, and post one by one to Tumblr. As ways to wind down and be lazy after work go, it’s not a bad racket. But since returning from vacation, I’ve been in the midst of a heart-to-heart with myself, and I’ve decided I want to make some changes to the usual routine.
What it means for you, dear Tumblrer, is that for now, this blog is on hiatus. This is a business decision first and foremost. The economy’s still in a tough spot, the shirt sales this year reflect that, and frankly, Tumblr isn’t helping move the needle.
There’s other reasons, too. It’s not a well-kept secret that Mousetrap is 100% Disney-inspired, but I didn’t mean for this to become a Disney blog. It was just supposed to be a repository for random tidbits of awesomeness I came across online. Over time, the Disney stuff crept in more and more, and it was hard to back away when the other Disney Tumblrers started picking up my posts. And although the attention’s been awesome, in my ideal Tumblr world I would want to be able to share this and have it get the same amount of attention (even if it’s way, way less) as if I shared this.
And finally, I’m at a point in life where the little voice in my head is starting to ask what’s keeping me from doing all the things I’ve ever thought it would be amazing to do. Tumblr’s eating into the time I could be using to pursue those interests. There’s a big, beautiful world outside my apartment walls, and I aim to spend more time exploring it.
But I’m plainly going to admit: I can’t walk away completely. I love Tumblr, love the interface, love finding & hearing about cool stuff and sharing it, mostly love seeing the even cooler stuff that everyone else finds. I may continue Tumblring, but it’ll be under another name, it won’t be at this address, and it’ll definitely be with less frequency. If & when I get it going, I’ll give all interested parties the ol’ high sign.
