Every couple of months or so I like to take a little break from my blog. I find disconnecting for a while and removing myself from the blogosphere does me the world of good. By taking a step back from blogging I am able to give more of my time and attention to my family and also indulge in my other hobbies, as well as enjoying some much needed ‘me time’.
This Friday Leo, Oli and I are off on holiday with my parents. We are going to Cheddar in Somerset and will be spending 5 nights staying in my parents caravan. I am excited to spend lots of quality time with my family and to make lots of lovely memories with my boy.
I don’t want to be glued to my phone, tweeting, liking, commenting and sharing. I also don’t want to be spending my evenings typing up posts and editing pictures. I want to fully immerse myself in the real world, not worry about my stats or anything else to do with my blog and just enjoy this precious time with my family. I want to spend the days exploring everything Somerset has to offer, enjoying relaxing days splashing in the campsite pool and spending evenings dancing away with Leo in the club house or playing countless games of Articulate and Cluedo with Oli and my parents.
I am most looking forward to having Oli with us, all day, every day for a whole week. He has been crazy busy with work lately, working night shifts and extra hours. Next week will be his first annual leave in almost a year and I don’t want to miss out on any of it because I’m too busy blogging. It is also mine and Oli’s birthdays on the 15th and 16th of May so that’s another good reason why I don’t want to be stuck behind a computer screen.
Once we are back from holiday I am planning on spending a few days finally getting my blog self hosted. I have a big to do list for my relaunch and I am not sure how long it is going to take me to get it all ticked off. So really, I don’t know when I will be back, hopefully by the end of the month with a fancy looking new blog and lots of fun tales from our holiday to share with you all.
So, after Friday I won’t be posting, I won’t be linking up and I will pretty much disappear from social media. And, you know what? I couldn’t be more excited. I love blogging, it is such a big part of my life now but I really can’t wait to sign out on Friday and have some time away from it all.
|Time to disconnect and stare at something much more beautiful than a glaring phone screen.
Have you ever taken a blogging break? Do you enjoy disconnecting for a while or do you spend the whole time worrying about your stats? I would love to know your thoughts on taking a blog break. Anyone off anywhere nice on holiday this year?
See you all on the flip side 🙂
