It’s just one of those things, and if you’re not a full time blogger/not dependent on your income from blogging then it’s more likely to happen – life gets in the way of blogging. Whether this is simply family members refusing to understand that you need at least half an hour a day to get on with blogging, or something more serious like an illness sometimes blogging will fall by the wayside.
Should you stop blogging temporarily?
There’s no answer that’s right for everyone. Naturally if there’s no Internet connection you’re theoretically off the hook, though it’s a good idea to try and write posts anyway at the very least so you have something to publish when you can get online.
Sit down and evaluate what’s going on. If there’s enough time in your schedule to blog a little bit without causing lots of stress do it. If you have to cut down on the number of posts you publish then do it – but try not to completely let your blog go dead if you can.
How do you come back?
Here I’m coming back with this post. Personally I would rather not discuss what’s been happening in the last few months – it’s not yet over but I do have enough time to blog again. If you’re comfortable explaining what’s happened then go ahead, if not then don’t worry – your life is private (even if you’ve already chosen to make that the main topic of your blog), apologise and move on.
So, sorry I’ve been missing for the last few months folks, there were various problems and of course, life delivered them into my lap all at once. I should be back blogging regularly now though I might go down to 3 posts a week while life is still hectic.
How do you deal with breaks from blogging?
