A break

I've decided to take a blog break.
I was going to write a long and convoluted post about it and even take a photo especially for the post, but that's exactly why I need to take a break.
Blogging is in the wrong spot on my priority list.
Lately I've been feeling out of control and like I'm not giving my life the attention it deserves.

I will be back. I love all the friends I've made through my blog and the wonder of having contact with so many people I can relate to and who can relate to me.

I just have to figure out where it all fits.

Pin It!

Enjoy your break, your family and take time for the big rocks (Kathy’s post...) on your list! I already wondered how you could keep up withthe DBJ blocks and blog and your own blog!
We will be waiting for you.

I hear ya'...blogging can be all consuming. enjoy your break.

Karen said...

Uh oh does this mean you won't be leading us in the Dear Jane blocks anymore? I did wonder how you could find time to do all of those tutorials but I certainly have been grateful that you got me going at last on the DJ blocks.

Autum said...

I'm feeling exactly the same way! Enjoy your break! I'm contemplating the same.

Rosa said...

I hope you come back with a ton of finished projects that will continue to "wow" us. You have recently inspired me to quilt, so I don't want to lose you now--but, I definitely know when you need a break. Have a fun sabbatical.

Adrienne said...

We'll miss you while you're away. Have a good break and take some time to breathe deeply and smell the roses. Or whatever is close at hand. See you when you're back. ~Adrienne~

beki said...

Enjoy your break, we'll be here when you return :)
(I can't tell you how many times I've contemplated this, but somehow I get sucked back in!)

Amy said...

I can so relate to this, I have had this inner struggle with blogging since I began. A break is a good thing, I have had a couple. Hope you can the balance you are looking for, real life is a good place too ;)

RobinE said...

Good for you! Enjoy your time off and have lots of family and crafting fun. I hope you rediscover the balance you need. It can be tough being pulled so many ways... taking a step back will no doubt help. :)

Most of us who blog need to do this once in a while. Some step away permanently. You'll know what's right for you. :-)

mariarrosa said...

Enjoy the break and we'll be here when you feel like coming back.

wyndesnow said...

I think that is why my blog gets neglected. I start to post regularly and then it hits me that stuff is not getting done and I am spending too much time on the computer. Enjoy your break!!!

LeeAnn said...

You'll be amazing how much you can get done without the pressure of a blog! See you when you get back!

Jacquie said...

Take a break...and enjoy!

Yummers! said...

I took a break for 3 weeks and I'm now back feeling ready to go again and inspired. I completely put the computer out of my thoughts and totally relaxed. It was great!! I won't hesitate to take another when needed.

Good luck, enjoy each moment, and relax. Read and go out for lunch.
Hugs,
Joni

Katie said...

I can understand. Look forward to your coming back! :-)

Carolyn said...

It's good to take a break and regroup once in awhile. I hope you'll be able to keep up with the Dear Jane blog, but if not...maybe I'll find time to do this week's blocks! :o) Take care of yourself...

Carol Van Rooy said...

We'll be here when you return.

twolimeleaves said...

I get it. Oh boy, do I get it...

Have a good break :)

LivingTheLife said...

Enjoy your break and time off...you will be missed, however!

You continue to inspire me with your creativity. I would love to be able to accomplish at least half of what you seem to be able to...I admire that!

Blessings...
Teresa

Shannon said...

Helen said...

Enjoy your break. I'll be scrolling down my blogline feeds waiting to see a little number 1 next to your blog again. :)

Katie Jean said...

we'll miss you A.
Hope everything's o.k. Enjoy your break!

house on hill road said...

i think most everyone goes through the same thing to some extent. enjoy your break, anina.

Cristina said...

It is good just to have a break once in a whille. Enjoy the rest :)

Kieny said...

I know what you mean... Enjoy your break. I will pop over to your Dear Baby Jane blog now and then and see what you are doing.

QuiltingFitzy said...

Throw us a crumb now and again...we'll miss you! Please remember, it's YOUR blog, each post doesn't need to be a masterpiece. We're just happy to have you share a bit of yourself and your love of creating.

Jackie said...

I hope to hear from you every once in a while. I completely understand the break. Life gets hectic and something has to give. Just remember we all understand and we are faithful readers. We will be there when you return! I hope all works out the way you envision.

CONNIE W said...

I am another who went through this, last Christmas time, and nearly deleted my blog. I did decide to keep it but I also decided I needed to cut way back on the time I spend on the computer. Take all the time you need to figure it out. Blogging can really be a time drain.

Natasha said...

Aww have a lovely break! At least you let people know I tend to just disapear for a time of my choosing. You have been so busy I look forward to catching up on your old posts.

Take care

Valerie said...

This can be addicting and take over a lot of time. I limit my blogging time to at night. If I get on during the day, I would never get anything done. Enjoy your break. I will be checking back though. Your blog is great.

Pieces said...

You'll be missed but I completely understand the need to break and reevaluate. I've often wondered how much I would get done if I walked away from the computer for a long break.

Blåbærtua said...

I`ve just discovered your fantastic blog. You have made so many wonderful things. WoW!! Enjoy your break.

happy zombie said...

I. HEAR. YOU! I've been contemplating the same thing. And I couldn't agree more with your comment about making friends through blogging!

I'll miss you, but will keep tabs in case you pop in on your blog. Enjoy your break Anina... I'll miss you!
xoxo,
M
