Why I took a break from Blogging…
I don’t know if anyone besides my most loyal fans (aka my family and best friends) have noticed, but I took a pretty big break from blogging. A long much needed break!
The break started out unintentionally. I was bogged down by other responsibilities, and in the little free time I had, I found it tough to motivate myself to do anything besides the bare minimum for my blog. The writer’s block was really real, and I was on the struggling to come up with new content.
I kept putting things off. I kept telling myself I would finally publish that post “tomorrow” except “tomorrow” kept getting pushed back, and I kept stressing about it. Eventually I just decided to be intentional about my break and simply enjoy it with no guilt looming over me.
So why did I take a break from blogging?
The simple answer would be because I needed it to prevent a complete and total burnout, but the real answer was much deeper than the occasional bout of laziness and writer’s block.
I got bored with blogging just about recipes. I knew that I wanted to grow my blog into all aspects of my life, from my career in music technology at TuneGo, traveling, motherhood, health, fitness, shopping, and everything else I do in my very crazy life.
Basically a crazy Lifestyle Blog! Oh and way more video blogs or vlogs! It took a minute to figure out my next steps but the most important thing that I learned on my hiatus was that I missed blogging and was frustrated not doing it.
