Taking a Blogging break.........

When I first started this blog it was something I wanted to do and something I enjoyed doing.  It has become a bit of a chore and I don't enjoy doing it as much as I did.  So I need to take a break, refocus and come back fresh and with enthusiasm.

Writing a post just because you HAVE to defeats the whole purpose of what blogging is about and it shows in your writing; at least in shows in my writing I believe and my writing has become stale and boring.

How long am I going to be away?  Could be a day, could be a week, could be a month, I have no idea.  I just need to get my Blogging Mojo back, and I will be back.

Fully understand you needing to take a break, but please don't be away too long as I don't think your writing is stale or boring, quite the opposite in fact. Take care xxx

Enjoy your break Gill - I hope you return feeling refreshed.

Star said...

We all feel like that Gill, sometimes. Take some time off, maybe read instead of write? Enjoy your break. I'm watching for when you return.

Cath said...

Hope you feel better about things soon.
See you when you come back. XXX

Have a good break - it'll do your writing the world of good to come back refreshed and ready to go!

Gill,
Take your time as I have done.
When it doesn't become fun and exciting it time to step back and re-fuel. It can be very time consuming and demanding to keep up the post's and then to check in on all your followers also.
I think I now will be spending my time outdoors and some needed cleaning of things that I have neglected trying to keep up my blog and visit everyone.
Take care my friend and I'm sure we will hear from you when you are ready. We won't forget you!!!

Maggie said...

I'll miss reading your posts Gill, but understand that you need a break.
Hope you will be back soon.

Take care x

Lena said...

I know how you feel.I just took a 3-day break last week. But remember that we'll miss you!

Denise said...

Enjoy your blogging break Gill, and I will be checking in occasionally to see if you are posting again.

Rose said...

Oh, Gill, I am in the same boat...it has just become a job for me. And with gas prices as high as they are, I am not out and about to get any new photos.

I will miss you, but sure understand. I have been thinking about taking a good break from it myself.

I did not think your writing had suffered though...I always enjoy reading.

DaxingCujo said...

Thanks for the heads up Gill..Enjoy your break!! Spring is here and so much to do outside..Will look forward to catching up with you when you get back!

anexactinglife said...

As I only discovered your blog last year, I'm going to use your break to start reading from the beginning.

Like you I was born in England moving here (Ontario) in the 60's

Looking fwd to your return!

Enjoy life. We are only here once.

EG CameraGirl said...

I think it's good to take a break now and then! There sure are tons of things to see and do this time of year so enjoy your time away.

Clippy Mat said...

I know exactly what you mean, and so do many others. When blogging becomes a bit of a chore it's time for a break.
enjoy the change; you've certainly been prolific for a long time and it will be good for you to recharge your batteries.

Hello Gill
The others have said it all - we'll be watching and waiting for your next post. Enjoy the rest.
Take care
Cathy

Completely understandable -- I did the same myself. That was when I gave up trying to blog every day when sometimes I didn't have anything to say. That is why my blogging is a bit random but it works better for me. I hope you get your mojo back soon as I will miss you and look forward to your return!
