Taking A Long Break

Hi there,

I have decided that this will be the very last year of Around the Spiral with Edward Lifegem. I love making blog posts about the game, but I think it's about time for me to stop making blog posts. I'm not going to stop this month, but I do plan on stopping when Around the Spiral turns five years old. I can't believe this blog is about to turn five years old! I'm happy that this blog lasted this long, but I don't think I should continue another year. I have had so many memorable posts (like the Ravenwood Ball, Pirate101's Grand Opening, New World announcements), and I've enjoyed making these blog posts. I love making posts like this, but I don't feel like this blog is the way I want it to be, at least for now. After my contest ends, I will announce the winners of it. I hope I can come back later down the road and feel like I did when I created this blog. For now, I'm going to finish this month off with a bang, and then start my break in January! I will still be on the games leveling! I plan on leveling my characters as much as possible. Hopefully by the time I come back, Edward Cringle will be level 65 (or whatever max is then) and all of my wizards will be level 100! Thank you so much for all of your support, I hope to return soon. Remember, I will take my break starting in January but I'm not announcing when I'm coming back. This blog will still be up. I will no longer be a Pirate101 Fansite owner (at least for now). I will be back, but after a long needed break. I'm not promising weeks for sure, months, it could be longer than a year. I will finish off this year with a bang, but I will be back. I might come back on May 10th to make a short post about my 5 year Blog Birthday! I'll be here everyday this month. I really hope I do come back and level, but if I don't think I should, I promise I will at least have one month in the future where I make blog posts everyday and end it off on a good note. :) I also MIGHT make blog posts if I feel like it during my free time. I will not announce it on my official social networks though. Thank you for reading! ~ Edward Lifegem

Aww Edward, It's so sad to hear you are stopping even if for a while. I totally understand why and that's ok but you will be greatly missed. <3 Your personality is the type that you cannot do things lightly. You either need to do daily posts or you feel like you are not putting all your effort into it. A weekly or bi weekly post just won't do it for you. That kind of drive is admirable but it IS hard on a busy person that is in a time of his life where he MUST invest time into himself to prepare for life's long journeys.
Go with our blessing and invest in yourself as much as you have invested in our fun. You totally deserve it. You need it. You will come back so much stronger and wiser and I look SO forward to your triumphant return. *Ginormous Chrissy Hugs* & Merry Christmas. (Love the Christmas music by the way. One of my favorite things to do is to pop over here and listen.)

Never been good with the Good Bye's Ed but of course I just can't let you leave without me saying an enormously big THANK YOU! Back in the years I remember you were the friendly soul to introduce me to the Twizard community and help me kick off with my project on my blog! You have always been an amazing friend and I sure hope to see you on both games from time to time. I believe we all know that life can be a big challenge and we all need a break, whether it be big or a short one. My English is not as good to express all my gratefulness but I am very thankful for everything you've done for me! I am surely looking forward to seeing you return in the future and by then we all will have the time to revisit and re-read all the greats posts on this amazing blog.
Hugs and a big bottle of Yum - your friend Bad Terri Jones, the Spiral Wonder :)!
