After three-plus years and a frightening 794 posts (795 if you count this one), this blog will be on temporary hiatus until (at least) the new year.  During my much-needed vacation, I came to the realization that - as much as I enjoy screaming into the interwebs about trade, monkeys and other important stuff - my little (unpaid) hobby was seriously distracting from my more-than-full-time job, my increasingly-pregnant wife, more formal public policy endeavors and the many other joys and obligations that exist outside of my den.  Blogging also had begun to feel like a chore rather than a hobby, and - let's face it - that's not good for an activity that neither pays the bills nor keeps Stately Lincicome Manor in good working order.

Thus, I'm going to take a little break to realign my priorities and determine if a more "balanced" blogging approach is possible or necessary.  There's a very good chance that I will end up feeling bored and/or repressed in under a week, and therefore resume blogging in 2013.  In the meantime, I'll still be tweeting on the same issues covered here (at @ScottLincicome) and might even post a random link or two here over the next month (but no promises).

Thanks much for reading over the past few years.  It's been a pretty wild ride - one that I never, ever expected when I started doing this back in July 2009.

And happy holidays.

Ha! Someone posted the exact same thing on my Facebook page. Glad to know my obsession is universally recognized.

p.s. India initiated AD investigations of US and other solar panels today. Already tough to resist blogging on that!

I will definitely miss your blog. But as a father of two young children, I totally understand. Good luck to you and your family at the Lincicome Manor.
