The Not-Hiatus

Posted: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 by Travis Cody in

I have invented a new state of blog-being called the Not-Hiatus. It means I'm taking a break, but not really. It means I'm so dang busy at work again that I just don't have time to write posts or make rounds.

But I'm not really taking a break.

It just seems that way.

Thus, the Not-Hiatus.

Expect to see me posting and commenting when you see me.

Cheers gang!


  1. It makes total sense :)

  1. TopChamp says:

    It seems we're sharing that state. See you whenever!

  1. Turnbaby says:

    So what does it mean if we are ALL doing that?

    I'm with you sugar--it's been crazy but so much of it is just so good.

  1. Cheesy says:

    Rest easy baby boy.. I have tons of time on my hands.. will make the rounds for you?? hehehehe

  1. I understand totally~See you when you get back!

    Like the term! On a recent read through some of my old posts, I was amazed at how many times I apologized for taking short breaks and not visiting as often as I thought I should.

    It's the 7-up of blogging (the un-cola)

  1. Work happens. It's unfortunate bue.

  1. I think just about everybody has taken a "Not-Hiatus" at one time or another.

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    Ha ha ha, non-hiatus. I love that one :o)

  1. Akelamalu says:

    I'm trying to catch up after being away for a week! :(

  1. Jamie says:

    The blog muse seems to have gone on strike. This is a not visit to not read the not post that you didn't do during your not-hiatus. Which is a strange way to tie yourself into nots.

  1. Dianne says:

    BWO - blogging without obligation - it's the only way to do it and enjoy it

    take it easy
    see ya when I see ya ;)

  1. JohnH985 says:

    I like that, the Not-Hiatus. I know exactly what you mean. Now I know what to call it the next time it strikes.

  1. What a concept! I may borrow this idea (if you don't mind) for I've found it most challenging to post as regularly and visit others as often too. I guess we're all striving for a sense of balance ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  1. I may have to barrow this as well.

  1. Kate S says:

    Well, at least you've got lots of company! :)

  1. Bond says:

    I have been in that state all month

    Congrats on your Bl-Oscar dude...well deserved!

  1. Roger says:

    I understand this term so very well!

  1. jennifer says:

    About to do the same thing and I haven't taken a break in a while. Of course I didn't come up with a catchy phrase like "Not-Hiatus".


  1. That's okay, Travis. I understand exactly what you mean. Don't worry post when you can, visit when you can! :)

  1. Linda says:

    I may have to borrow your term from time to time as that's what seems to happen to me! Between work and trying to get this house organized still, sometimes there is just NO time for blogging. I don't mean to be on a hiatus but I am!

    Take it easy and don't work too hard!

  1. And here I was hoping you were on a relaxing hiatus! My sympathies, Travis!

  1. sounds like a plan, trav :)

    tomorrow noonish should show whether i can see enough to post again, or must wait for healing to be complete

  1. Travis, I'm going to post the answer to my post on the ethical dilemma posed by the movie The Mosquito Coast but I just want to say you are sooo smart. Your answer was right on and offered so intelligently.

  1. Raven says:

    Non-hiatus is a great term. Sorry you're so busy... unless you love your work so much that you are enjoying your non-hiatus.

  1. My not-hiatus this week was medically induced. I think I'm on the mend, though...

    Hurry back!

  1. Meribah says:

    The like! Enjoy your not-hiatus, if you can! :)

  1. Dana says:

    Gosh, I know how that feels! Take care and don't be a stranger :D

  1. Julie says:

    Yup yup yup! I know what you're saying dear. Kinda like a dog spinning around trying to catch her tail.

    But i think Cali has managed to do that a few times!

  1. HalfCrazy says:

    Aw, and I was expecting a pretty grand blog! :P Well I hope you enjoy your little "Not-hiatus" even if it's just a whole lot of work and work lol.

    Much Love,

  1. Dude!!! Me Too!! I will be joining you in Not Hiatus Land.

  1. like an un-birthday in Wonderland....
