Blogging Breaks & Why I Need Them

Blogging is my passion. I love it and live for it. It's opened up my world in so many different ways and I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunities it has given me as well as the fact you guys take time out of your day to sit and read something I've written. I adore you all.

However I'm also so thankful that you continue to come and read my blog even though I do have the occasional break from it, whether its weeks or months. I have had various breaks throughout my 4 years of blogging, mental health, illness in pregnancy or the simple and common bloggers block. You just don't know what to talk about. 

Unfortunately as much as I would like, blogging isn't my full time job. It is certainly one of my top priorities but not the thing I can invest all my time into. I have my normal job in mortgages, a baby to raise, a family to make time for, friends to socialise with all while trying to take blog photos, edit and upload them, think or and write content and then go on social media to engage and share my posts. There just are not enough hours in the day. 

My anxiety has been flaring up lately too, due to all the changes I'm going through right now, returning to work, leaving Lily at nursery when I just want to be with her all day. It just fill's up my mind meter and I can't fit much else in. I'm sure we have all been there and you just need to power through. Which is what I'm doing at the moment. It doesn't help that I've also taken on a sort of organiser role as I set up a bloggers group for my city as we just never had much going on, so I wanted to make stuff happen. So I am organising events, setting up meetings and liaising with bloggers and brands. 

I'm sure as soon as I'm back in the swing of things and got my routine I will get back to posting regularly. You might even be lucky enough to have set days so you know when to come and check! But yeah, I love you all and thank you so much for your patience and loyalty to helping me and my blog. I appreciate it so much.

Have you been through something similar? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I can 100% relate to how you're feeling, there really isn't enough hours in the day! I find not putting pressure on myself to blog or be active on social media has really helped me to enjoy blogging again x

  2. It can be so demanding trying to juggle blogging (which is essentially a full-time job) with everything else going on in life. Don't beat yourself up if you need a break once in a while, we will all be here when you are ready :)
