Announcement: Axolotl Ceviche Going on Indefinite Hiatus

Posted: May 9, 2013 in Uncategorized

Okay. This is incredibly hard to say.

But it needs saying.

Basically: I’m taking an indefinite break from blogging.

I really don’t want to have to do this, believe me. But at the moment, I’m stretched incredibly thin. I have school, I’m writing two novels, and I’m trying to maintain some fragmented section of a social life– all while trying to maintain two blogs (well, I’ve taken a break from 24-Hour Nothing Hour too, I guess). Which means that something’s gotta give. It’s not going to be socializing, it’s not going to be writing, and it sure as hell isn’t going to be school. So, because of this, I’m taking a break from blogging.

And I don’t know when I’m going to be back.

I’m really sorry about this. I try to make Axolotl Ceviche an interesting place, full of good, funny writing, but lately I’ve felt that my output has suffered. Recently, I’ve noticed a much larger succession of filler posts and tiny little bits of nonsense, and I’m sorry, but that’s not interesting reading. And it’s not interesting to write, either. Which means that I have to take a break.

Relax, Internet. I’m not breaking up with you. I just think that you and I need some time apart. I’m going through a lot of stuff right now, which means that I have to do some… what’s a more manly term for “soul-searching”? “Introspecting”? Yeah, that works.*

Cheesy breakup lines aside, I do need to take a break from blogging for a while. And I don’t know how long that’ll be. I hope to get Axolotl Ceviche 2.0 set up by summertime, but that might not happen. Which means that it may be six months to a year before I’m blogging again.

I don’t want that to happen. But I do need to take a break from blogging for a while. And, so you know that I’m not dead or kidnapped by Gypsies or eloped to Patagonia with James Marsters or anything like that, I’m posting this.

I will be back. This I promise. But it’ll be a while.

Until then,

~ Ian

    My “like” does not mean I like the fact that you’re breaking up with me-errr, I mean taking a break from blogging when I just found your blog :-(
    I will have to console myself with catching up with your stuff and hope you’re back soon because c’mon, how many people understand the genius of “his penis got diseases from a Chumash tribe”?

      Thanks for the words. And yes, I will be back, so don’t worry. I just don’t know when.

      A quick note: I don’t just talk about Buffy here. Sometimes I talk about Firefly, too! And other stuff!

      Have fun trawling the archives. There’s a LOT of stuff here…

    • Ian Johnson says:

      Thanks for your comments. I’ll have my homepage hopefully set up within a couple of months, but until then, I won’t be blogging at all.

      Out of curiosity, how did you find this blog?

  3. Hillary says:

    fine I’ll humbly wait for it over here do you have your poems anywhere?

    I was searching for love songs for guys for a certain reason… then I saw the comment where you quoted Shakespeare and I was like wow so… yeah. sorry if this is long

    • Ian Johnson says:

      There’s tons of poetry and other writings on this blog. Just look under the “poetry” tag to your left, and then there’s some of my other writing under the tag “writings” at the top of the page.
