Taking a Break

Hey all,

It's been quiet around here, I know. My thoughts are too scattered to actually post anything worthwhile. Everything's fine - well, not everything, but enough - I just can't get motivated to take any random thoughts and turn them into something coherent.

I also got bored with the look of my blog, as you can see.

I may do a weekend wrap-up or I may not. I know I've been visiting less and less, too. Sorry about that.

I think I need to take a break, but I'm scared! I'm scared you won't be here when I return. Promise to not delete me?

I'll still visit from time to time so don't leave completely. Please.

See? Even this post is all over the place!

Yes, I'll still be here. I totally understand. I'm feeling unmotivated myself. Take all the time you need. I'll miss you though. :)

I'll miss you too. But I am feeling you on the whole unmotivated thing.

FreedomFirst said...

Promise! I've been posting less and less too even though I visit daily.

I think so many of us are feeling this way. So many thoughts and ideas, but no idea how to put it into words. It's the reason I was quiet for quite a while. I'll stick around, don't worry :)

Since I email you a billion and three times a DAY, I am not worried. Love you.

That's the good thing about Google Reader, whenever you decide to post something I'll still be here.

I worry about this too though. Because when I did take a week off one time, half my readers didn't come back for about a month. But they did come back eventually. So no worries.

If people are subscribing to your feed, they'll know when you're back, so I wouldn't sweat that too much. I know that in my case, it's usually MONTHS before it dawns on me that "hey, so-and-so hasn't posted in ages" and I delete a dormant feed.

You have that cruise vacation coming up soon anyway, right? After that, you'll probably have lots to blog about :-). Just relax - you'll get your mojo back, and we'll still be here :-).

Take care of you, and the rest will happen just as it's supposed to.

If we don't hear from you before your cruise, I want to extend my thoughts to you...for a trip that's all you hope it to be!

Since it was about twenty below zero here this morning...well, I am a bit envious. Enjoy yourself!

Hey April. I'm finding it harder to blog now that I'm a contributor to Rocky Mountain Moms. I understand. We still love you and won't delete you.

Take a break! We all need one. I'll definitely be here. I continue to have up and down feelings about blogging and contributing to different sites. Then I joined Twitter and feel I might have a mental breakdown. Going to be taking stock this weekend too. Come back and check in when you need to! It's a community. . .we're all here. We can't go away.

You're at the top of my Reader List... I'm sticking around for the duration. Have fun on your cruise and don't worry about us.

Julie said...

I'm still following you, so take as long as you need.

Enjoy your cruise and have fun and I'll still read your blog. Take your time ...we all need it.

Hugs,

Have fun on your cruise and don't worry, we'll be back to hear all about it.

I get it. I SO get it. I'll still be here... break or no break!

Loth said...

You are in my Reader, and in my Reader you'll stay.

Don Mills Diva said...

Enjoy your break April - you'll still stay in my reader!

littlemansmom said...

I PROMISE! LOL....and I'm diggin' the look...clean, crisp, clear....enjoy your break! :)

Dingo said...

I'll be here! Take a break if you need it. Get things in order (or as much as they can be). We'll be here when you get back.

Love the new look!

Something most of us go through from time to time - but, go - live a life - and have lots more to blog about when you return. It's working wonders for me!

Trannyhead said...

Heh - I'm still here, honey. :-)

won said...

If memory serves me (which is doubtful at best), it's about time for you to go and seek the other end of that spectrum of balance in your life.

Enjoy your trip!!
