On Sabbatical

Friends, family, bloggers, an antagonist or two, and even spam artists are wondering whatever has become of Beach Blogger? Apologies are due all around. Consider us as groveling for your forgiveness.

We're very well, thank you for asking, and as happy, sassy, and cynical as ever.

We originally intended to take a short time off. But after a much too-abbreviated respite in a couple of westerly locations, we squarely confronted the reality that BP's oil spill had shoved another project of ours onto a back burner, and far too long at that. All in all, we lost three months on a looming deadline.

We blame Tony Hayward and BP, of course. If Ken Feinberg thinks he's seen some dicey damage claims, wait until he gets ours for missing the entry deadline for the Fredrick Jackson Turner award.

Our blogging compadre, Barrier Island Girl, wistfully sighs through an email she sent us the other day that it looks like we've 'taken back our life.' Not quite. We've just imprisoned it inside another passion for the time being.

Wait a bit more. Blogging will resume shortly, though it likely will be light. In the meantime, we recommend you consult our blogging neighbors Why Now? and Barrier Island Girl. They're both superb.

Be still my beating heart. It is so nice to see you again, beach blogger! I am so relieved that you are well and will be entertaining us, once again.

Welcome back!! It's fine if you want to quit or cut waaay back on blogging. I was trying hard but couldn't shake the feeling that maybe some bad had happened during your break. Really love your blog, but hey, enjoy life!

Welcome back. It's not so much that you tell me something I didn't know or couldn't get from the internet..we all look at the same websites. It's just knowing that there are other intelligent life forms in the area. Thanks.

I had to stop by to tell you how much you've been missed. You usually gave us some good insight about now, election time, and that insight has been sorely missing.

Wishing you much peace and happiness as the holidays approach, beach blogger.

I am a gulf coast business man who owned a restaurant in Pensacola which closed due to the oil spill. My claim is around $500,000 and BP offered me a quick pay of $25,000. The only people I have found talking about this on the internet is http://www.bpclaims.org. I feel that the GCCF is making it difficult for me to get my BP claims to get paid.
