I know it’s time for Short Tale Tuesday but this is not a fiction. This post had to be written sometime, even if I kept trying to fool myself out of it.  You could see me fooling myself only a couple of weeks go, where I wrote that I was going to share more,  I was going to post more.

But, I don’t have the time. I have two blogs (two blogs? What was I thinking!) Wildlife Fun 4 Kids and this one. Although I love my little nook here, I just don’t have time. I don’t have time because:

  • It’s so much work to have two identities online
  • My family needs me (and that’s more important than having another blog)
  • Wildlife Fun 4 Kids is going off and that makes me more busy

I want to have more time to:

  • Play with my family
  • Read books
  • Spend time with my best friends
  • Write

I can’t even imagine having both blogs going off. I’d have no time to have a real life and I’m on the computer enough with WF4K!

I love blogging. I love the community but it’s time I faced the truth. I can’t do it all. I just can’t. One has to go.

So, that brings me to Short Tale Tuesday. It will no longer run.  I am so going to miss the Stories of Brian and the The chosen One Series  but I hope you continue writing them. I will still be reading.

If anyone would like to take Short Tale Tuesday under their wing, please let me know. You can have the badge I created and take it where it really should go, rather than stagnating here.

Short Tale Tuesday

I’ll still keep my little domain alive and I may post randomly here and there but A Mum in the Wild is not my priority. There are more important things in my life right now ( like a 5 year old going to school next year and almost 2 year old twins).

So, I’m sorry to those who were excited about me having my own personal blog and who were wanting to know more about me as an individual and not as Ranger Penny but it’s not the right time.

Thanks for those who have linked up before and for all the wonderful supportive comment I received from the Diary of a SAHM IBOT team!

Here’s the last link up on A Mum in the Wild.



  1. Penny sad to see you signing off, I’ve enjoyed getting to know u a little. God bless, bmx

  2. I can’t keep up with ONE blog and everything else, so amazing that you’ve managed to keep up with two! Sounds like the right decision to let this go for now. Maybe one day you’ll pick it back up again.

  3. :( This happens. It’s important that we know how to prioritise and make decisions. Good on you. I wouldn’t be able to run 2 blogs. Rachel x

    #teamIBOT was here to say hello! :)

  5. I will miss this so much and am so tempted to take the linkup. Thank you so much for what you have done for me, I would never have started writing this series without you!

  7. Oh this makes me a little teary. Helped by the background music from Sesame street where baby bear is singing ‘a bird’s got to fly.’

    Having said that, I think everyone understands. Family needs to come first. You can always link the other one up to IBOT if you want, but no pressure. We will have to find other ways to keep in touch.xx

  8. Oh Penny!
    I totally get it and understand – 2 blogs is a massive undertaking.
    I want to thank you for inspiring me to try my hand at fiction – I don’t think I would have without the challenge of the first few weeks of STT.
    I love your other blog and delighted that it’s going so well.
    I’m sad that i’m not linking up today but just felt too rotten from my dental surgery to be creative.
    Lot of love to you lady. xx

  9. I totally understand where you’re coming from. I began a second blog in June this year, and already I’m finding it hard to juggle the two of them. I would like to be able to give more, but like you, I would also like more time for more important things.

  12. Gawd Pen, it’s been so long since I’ve dropped in, I’m so sorry!! I don’t know how you kept up two blogs for so long when most of us struggle with just one. Glad to hear Wildlife Fun for Kids is going off, go you xxxx
