I started the Conejo Post in early summer of 2009 and have posted consistently for over 4 years until this fall, and I have enjoyed it so much! The blog gave me a way to share the beauty I saw in the Conejo Valley and to talk about issues important to us who live here. I also had the opportunity to write about history and contributions of our fellow residents, plus, I got to share quirky photos of things I came across as I drove around our valley.
But, best of all, I met some great people through comments to the Conejo Post! And, we got to dialog about things great and small, always with courtesy and often with humor.
As you probably have noticed, I haven’t been posting much any more. While it used to be fun and I couldn’t wait to sit down at the computer with the latest item, that is not the case, at least for now. Either inertia or writer’s block has set in, and it is hard for me to find the few minutes to post something new.
Therefore, I am discontinuing blogging for the foreseeable future. Please know that I will miss reading your comments that so often enlightened me and the sense of community I would feel when someone would mention that they read the blog.
Thank you for your support, goodbye for now, and best wishes!

PS. I am still looking forward to publishing my book, “Growing Up With G.I. Joe’s,” in the spring, and you can go to the book’s website at www.growingupwithgijoes.com. Also, please note I have changed the email contact back to firstname.lastname@example.org. The blog’s most recent email was at GMail, but Gmail has changed their sign-in policy that makes it difficult to access it.
