It is that time of year again where I take a self-imposed six-week vacation from the birding blogosphere (no blogging, no tweeting, and no reading other birding blogs...yeah it hurts!)...almost like a religious fast. This is not because I get burned out our anything, but exactly the opposite. This time off helps me battle my natural tendency toward narcissism, helps me maintain a strong connection with my family, reminds me of my priorities in life, refreshes my spirit, allows me time to read a lot, and to develop new talents and skills. I'll still be birding and taking photos during this time so I should come back sometime around the beginning of August with tons of new stuff to share with you. (Please don't drop me from your blog roll because I haven't posted anything new during this blog vacation. I will be back!)
I've been having a blast with this website and I really enjoy your comments and feedback. Heartfelt thanks to all my birding friends in Utah, Idaho and all you wonderful Birding is Fun! blog readers and Twitter followers worldwide! In the meantime, feel free to drop me an e-mail, check out my reviews, read about other enthusiastic birders in the Birder Profiles, or take the survey about birding apps. Below the blog posts, you'll find a list of the most popular posts at Birding is Fun!, so you can check those out too. There are some fantastic bird and nature bloggers out there, so visit them in the side bar!
