Seems like burn-out to me.
Well I, for one, am quite capable of managing my Disney-side and my current events side. One does not override the other. I manage to volunteer for several local charities and personally help children in my own community to enjoy sports.
I have a different take on being a Disney fan. I use my Disney-side to escape all the mess of today's current events. We all need to take a vacation from reality every once in a while.
So I will contine to be a Disney fan and am very proud of it, thank you very much.
Seems like burn-out to me.
Again, it was not at all burnout of any kind. I am still very active with my Disney passions and I in fact maintained my blogs well into September until the time required for my current project (which is Disney-based) made daily updates prohibitive.
Clion, it would seem by your tone that you took some offense to my recent blog commentary. To quote from it--
This is certainly not to accuse all Disney fans out there of fostering the same Disney isolationism that I embraced over the past couple years. This is a very personal reflection on my part and in no way implies a critical view toward any of my fellow bloggers, podcasters and Disney enthusiasts. I will leave it to those individuals to conduct their own self examinations, should they so choose.
I'm happy you have found the balance that I previously was lacking.
While I still hope to hear you on the podcast again, I wish you the best of luck in finding your balance

You rock Jeff take your time on what you need to do and we will all be here when you have time to bless us with your Disney wisdom once again. Like Lou says the Disney community is the closest I have ever met. We will always be here.
My apologies if my comments appeared to take offense. That was not my intent.
I wish you the best of luck on your project. Let us know about it when you can.
I'll wave hi as I drive through town on I-40 and US 52 on Friday afternoon on my way to WDW.
Taking a break is a good idea so that one can come back fresh. Jeff, I hope that sometime in the future, you and Lou will record more DSI segments on Disney World. I do not post here much, but I wanted to comment that the DSI segments are the best segments in any Disney podcast. It was definitely what I was looking for in Disney podcasts. I hope you guys get together again soon.
I'm so glad someone asked about Jeff as I was worried about him. Glad to hear there was no falling out and that he's pursuing all of his interests. I too, had some reflection and stepped away from some Disney related things just to gain perspective. I'm glad to be back, refreshed. Good luck Jeff!

Maybe Jeff is still looking for the phone he dropped off the monorail. While I will agree that Jeff was good on the show I must also say that there have been many other guest that are just as good as, if not better than, Jeff. It seems that people are beating Lou up over "where Jeff Pepper is?" Maybe we should be asking Jeff where he is.
I read Jeff's blog and I wish him the best of luck in what he's doing.
Ok, So much like Jeff I was on Hiatus over the long winter. But I am back. And now reading this post, What is this so called Disney Related Project? Ive been missing Jeff ever since his last DSI: Peter Pans Flight. Will Jeff Pepper rise from the ashes like a pheonix, or is he gone like River Country and Discovery Island? My guess is the latter...
I hope Louie M. is reading this and will listen to our pleas to bring Mr. Pepper back to the show at once.
"Boy, I'm tired. I think I'll head over to The Hall of Presidents and take a nap."
Well thats not Lous fault. Its my hero Jeff Peppers fault. He cut podcasting out of his life and its understandable that he didnt want to podcast anymore. All I can say is, stay together for the kids.
