Holiday

on May 13, 2014

Ever since I began blogging, in November, 2011 (I had to go back to find this!) I have been amazed by the generosity of strangers, the friendships formed by commonalities, and the understanding when certain bloggers, like myself, just can’t keep up with those amazing, yet tenuous, friendships.

The fact that WordPress has gone a bit AWOL in terms of this blog (yes, I have contacted the Happiness engineer people) has actually given me time to reflect on what I really want to do here, on this blog:

1. Reading: Keep in better touch with blog friends, but don’t feel guilty if you can’t.
2. Writing: KISS (keep-it-simple-stupid!) – also, keep it short.
3. Photography: Learn from others.
4. Personal: If you are having a difficult time with the whole life thing, and you can’t blog, that is absolutely fine.

I so appreciate all of the blog support I have received from friends, relatives, bloggers and family, but I just cannot keep up at the moment and feeling bad not to have even answered comments! So yet another blog break is in order, so I can spend more time with Anthony and write my soon-to-be famous novel ha!

Nothing dramatic – just a little blog holiday.

    Relax, take your time and No Worries! Blogger Guilt is not something you should ever waste precious time on. All in all apologies are unnecessary but still appreciated.

    I’m sure most people understand that you have a lot going on in your life. Plus, you get so many comments you can’t possibly keep up with them all. Enjoy your blog-free vacation and let go of any guilt!

  21. It’s so important to take care of ourselves. I just returned from a hiatus at hosting dVerse. So important to understand our own needs, isn’t it.

    Love you Jules.

  23. Nourish yourself before you can nourish anyone else.
