I received the following comment from Reader Craig Houston:
Many people have posted a reply saying that you don't have to "retire" completely. You can take it easy and not post every day. I agree with them!! Don't feel that you have only two choices - post every day or stop posting all together. These are FALSE choices. There is no requirement for you to post every day nor is there any requirement for you to keep unpleasent comments on your blog.
George! go back to your original blog and enjoy your "retirement" by posting anything that is on your mind whenever you feel like it. If somebody leaves a nasty comment then delete it immediately. We don't like reading that childish junk any more than you do. As was said several times above, you have thousands of readers who would really like to hear from you once in a while. Don't let them down."
