Everyday Beauty Forum Not Closing

I suspect most EDB blog readers don't care about this announcement, but some of you might. Thanks to a surprising amount of kindness and support, the forum will remain open, instead of closing this weekend.

It's true my resources have been sucked dry. I have been so incredibly busy—too busy, apparently, to blog and hang out in the beauty space—but the thought of leaving it behind was making me feel very sad. How dry and colorless my life would be. So I hope to better manage my commitments in order to enjoy a bit more down time ... and hopefully resume posting on this blog. I have so much to say and so many posts ratting around in my head, I wish I could just do a brain dump.

Carry on.

  3. I really enjoy your blog. Your product reviews are so detailed. Really helps to zero in on good products - otherwise the choices are overwhelming. Looking forward to future posts.

  7. I've been away from the forum for quite awhile. Seems like when I do have time to get online right now, I've just tried to keep my head above water with my email & do a bit of blog reading. Participating on any forums has temporarily gone by the wayside. I can only imagine how draining both mentally & financially an undertaking like this can be.

    I am glad to see that you are doing a comeback! I do check your blog periodically to make sure I hadn't missed a post over the last few months. Your blog and the forum have been such a fabulous resource for me - I would be sad if they were to go. Please know that even though I haven't been vocal about it, I have missed blog posts from you. I can't wait to see what comes when you begin your 'brain dump'!

  8. *smooches* to all.

    lov2read, we took in another stray from our woods just days before Thanksgiving, and it has taken all my resources (and them some) to deal with him. Normally, you trap a cat, take it straight to the vet for a checkup and neutering (and de-fleaing/de-ticking), bring him home, and keep him in his own room for a couple weeks while he acclimates (e.g., his testosterone calms down!), and while the resident cats get used to his scent through the closed door.

    This guy was different. He was so traumatized by the capture he refused to eat. That meant we had to syringe feed him 3x a day every day, and even that was rough going because he would not swallow. For more than a month it was very touch and go, but he finally started to eat. It took another month for him to get his energy back and now he's the BEST CAT EVER. Wicked pissah, he tells me.

    But during that long period I played Florence Nightingale, I had a work deadline, I hosted Christmas with overnighters, and I had a bunch of other stuff I signed on for. So my absence from EDB was less about money than having time. I knew that the lure of my online escape might mean not getting the other stuff done.

    But things have calmed now, and I feel like I might have time to resume blogging soon. In the meantime, the forum is open for chatting and sharing for another year. :)....

  11. Don't go,I have thought many times of closing up but what would I do if I do have something to say? So just stay open and think of your site as a beauty museum where people come and just read and relax. :-)

    xoxo,
