I’ve decided that I need a break from blogging. Does anyone else ever feel that way? So for the summer I’m going to take that break.
It doesn’t mean I’m not going to blog at all. It does mean that I’ll be blogging and responding much less. I went into this whole blogging adventure with the mindset that I’m blogging for me. I’m not blogging to please anyone else, I’m not blogging for stats/numbers or for popularity. This was to be a place simply to get stuff out, think out loud, and keep my mind sharp. If people followed, that was a gift and treasured extra bonus.
That mindset has served me well, and I’ve been very blessed to meet and get to know so many wonderful people. I treasure the friendships I’ve made, and I hope to continue them. You all know who you are.
However some may have been able to tell that my heart is not in this as much as it once was. As with the real world it has come with a fair share of heartache/drama. Some of which I’ve not completely recovered from.
When I blog, I want to blog with my whole heart in it. I know how it affects you all and myself when I’m not. Maybe stepping back will refresh me and bring back the passion or new passions,I don’t know but I hope so.
So what I’m doing, is going back to my mindset of blogging for me. If the mood strikes and I feel I want to blog I will, if not, I’m letting myself off the hook. I hope that this doesn’t offend anyone, but like we all say so often to each other, we have to take care of ourselves right?! If it does bother you feel free to contact me. My email is on my “About” page. I’m happy to stay in touch.
If and when I come back on a more regular basis after the summer, I may also be changing the theme of my blog. I’m still working through that in my mind, so I don’t want to say yet what direction I’m going but, I’ll let you know when I’ve figured it out.
So have a great summer everyone. I will miss you but I’ll be around some and I’m on Facebook too hint hint.
If anyone would like to guest post on my blog please let me know. I would love to feature some of you!
There IS hope!
