Hi Folks!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a week intermission from posting on Vent.

I’d like to spend this time focusing on researching and reading blogs for future interview posts.

Ever since I started hosting these interviews, I’ve been delightfully surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed putting them together and highlighting other bloggers. So, my desire is to share more of them sporadically throughout the months.

Also, I’ve been neglecting my review blog for the past month, so I want to spend some time this week; giving it needed attention.

Have a wonderful week blogging, everyone!

I'll miss ya, and will see you all again next Monday…..



  1. (((( Ron ))))

    How kind of you to leave us popcorn for the intermission! :-)

    Happy updating!

  2. Aww, I will be missing your fantastic humor this week. I guess I will have to stock pile the vitamin C and xanex for the upcoming withdrawl of the week without Vent! See you next week buddy!

  3. Enjoy your break, Ron!!!!!! (See, I remembered all those exclamation points for you.)

    I feel like taking a blog break myself. Except I'm not going to be busy researching anything because that feels like work.

    See ya on the flip side.

  4. Have a nice little vacation from the blog!

  5. I'm not going to lie and say I won't miss your posts... but you have to do what you need to do my friend.
    Sometimes a little retreat is a good thing.



  6. Well have a great week Ron but I will SO MISS YOU! X

  7. Have a good break, bro! You'll be missed. :)

  8. Hiya Mel!

    I freakin' LOVE doing these interviews!!

    I'll still be posting my normal vents, for sure. But I would like to add more interview posts throughout the months. It takes a lot of time to put them together, so I'm using this week to focus primarily on that.

    OMG...I was thinking of you too!

    Didn't it SUCK?

    All day yesterday, I kept walking around work saying, " it July or November???" I saw people wearing shorts and flip-flops!

    Thanks, dear lady....I really enjoy composing these interviews and love doing the research. I need to week to really focus on them.

    Thanks for stopping by, Dianne!

    Love to you, Hope, Siren, and Mia!

    There is supposed to be a cold front coming in. Just right for ducks and you.

    Enjoy the break buddy.

  20. Will be eagerly awaiting your return! I should check out this other blog of yours.

  21. Howdy Jeff!

    There is supposed to be a cold front coming in. Just right for ducks and you.



    Oh, I wish I could buddy. If I didn't have to work, I'd be there in a flash!

    Actually, we're suppose to be getting colder temps too - FINALLY! Two days ago it was in the freakin' 80's! And as you can tell...Dianne and I were NOT happy. She and I both love it COLD.

    Thanks a bunch for dropping by tonight, Jeff!

    Always a pleasure seeing ya!

    Enjoy your week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Hi Tattytiara!

    Thanks, dear lady!

    Yes, if you feel like it, please do. It's a beauty review blog where I review beauty products. Hope you enjoy.

    Have a great week!

    See ya next Monday!

  23. well ronnie, I will , as always, miss you and just when I need a shoulder to cry on too...well, crap, with friends like you...

    no, just kidding...:)

    have fun doing research, yeah, that sounds like a really big lot of fun-bet you are hauling your little buns to the bahamas for the week and not telling anyone-- and then come back all rested and ready to write some blog posts, ok? ok, now that we have that settled, I think I will toddle off to put on my face cream--fat lot of good it's doing but looking forward to more moi posts[suddenly I am thinking I have that wrong and it's called something else, do you ever have those senior moments? sigh...], love that little blog you don't ever post on! i need another face cream this damned stuff is costing me too much and doing a pitiful little bit of nothing to make me look beautiful, not that it's possible now that i am old and feeble and will never be the same again...woe woe woe is me...

    and love you too, did I tell you that lately? well, I know I am not too good about that according to some who shall remain nameless but if not, let it be known now that I do and will miss you much.

  24. Hi Ronnie,

    You have a very good break ;) It seems to be more of a working break than a snoozing one. But come back to us soon with some fresh ideas and new faces to present.

    We all need our Vent fix !

    XXX to ya in Love city :)

  25. Helloooooo Linda!

    No Bahama's for me, dear lady.

    I think if I were going to take a vacation, it would probably be to the snowy mountains...or perhaps Alaska - where it's cold.


    I know, I've been neglecting Moi Review, so I wanted this week off to do some writing there.

    I love ya too, dear lady!

    Hope you're having a wonderful week and enjoying your new project. I can't wait to see your products!!!

    You GO, girl!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    See ya, next Monday!


    P.S. and thanks for those cute little hearts - I love em'!

  33. Hey Ron!
    I'd wondered where you were! I'm just returning from an unexpected "break" myself...and I began to notice that you weren't....anywhere.

    I'm just glad you're okay. I don't know how you've kept things going as smoothly as you have...between a blog and a website and a full time job and....then there's well, life! I hope you get the chance to relax and chill for a know we'll be here missing you...and will welcome your return with open arms.

    Who loves ya, baby??


  34. Hellooooooooooooooo Kathryn!

    Thanks for stopping by, my NY friend!

    So GREAT to see ya!

    Yes...I've been laying low for the past four days and getting some other things done. Not only working on my interviews and other blog, but also just chillin'. It's been really nice. I like to do this ever couple of months, just to take a break.

    Hope all is going well for you and I can't wait to catch up with all my blogging buddies next Monday!

    Have a FAAAAAABULOUS rest of your week, Tootsie!

    It's been very cold here, so I know it's proably the same for you in NY. I'm LOVIN' it of course!

    Talk to ya soon!


  35. Hey Ron. Just stopping by. I hope you're enjoying your blog vacation. I was MIA for a week or two myself, so I'm just catching up on some of your posts.

    Have a nice weekend, my man.

  36. I came here to check things out again. Also to thank you for stopping by and saying hi. I was also intrigued by what a posting schedule is...? I thought it might be an app, but it doesn't appear to be?!! Hope your research and interviews are going well. I have a mini idea for a new short story so look out for it! Enjoy!

  37. Greetings Constant Complainer!

    Always so nice seeing ya here, buddy!

    Yes, I'm really enjoying this little vacation. I'm accomplishing what I wanted to do, but also kicking back a bit too. Really looking forward to getting back on Monday!

    And enjoy your weekend!

  38. Hi Love Writing Again!

    So nice to see ya again!

    Thanks for stopping back.

    Yes, I really enjoyed your blog and am looking forward to reading more when I get back on Monday.

    As I'm sure you already realized, a posting schedule are the days I post here on Vent. I placed that on my sidebar for new visitor, so they would know when I post. Setting a schedule for myself seems to keep me motivated.

    Hope you had a great week!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  39. Hope the updating goes well :) Looking forward to readin g some inspiring and funny posts on your return *no pressure lol* :)
