Taking a Break

This is probably the worst possible time to do this. The blog has been picking up steam. I’m getting more views, the followers are coming in (welcome to you all!), more comments. One of the most important things to do as a blogger is to be consistent. If you’re posting twice a week, post twice a week, or you’ll lose people. Of course, that leads to things like Friday’s post, where I draw you in just to tell you to go away for the day.

Anyway, today in particular is a day where my brain is running in wrong directions. This is a non-focus day today. As I type I’ve got 9 tabs open on my browser with blogs that I follow. I don’t know if I’ll read them today. My head is just not there today. I’ve got the novel that I will force myself to make some headway on, but the blog, for today and Friday, will be dark. I will be back, don’t worry. Thanks for your readership and support, see you next week.

  1. It's perfectly fine to take a break! It's the month long ones (or longer!) that are hard to recover from. Sometimes the brain just needs a chance to reorganize. And just like any organizing, things get a little messy before they get better. 🙂

  2. Nine tabs? Is that all?! Hahaha, just kidding. I so know how you feel. I have to force myself to do this crap, I mean blogging. You should be passionate about it though so take the time you need, but know you will be missed. I keep you on my blog roll so when I'm making the rounds, I'm sure not to miss you. You're one of my faves!!
