If you are one of those super people that read my blog regularly (you all should by the way – I’ll send you virtual bacon sandwiches) you may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet as of late.
Unintentionally I seem to have gone on a blogging hiatus and I’m not sure how or why. Maybe it’s the weather or the impending long summer ahead with all 3 with me at home that I’ve just lost the bug to grab my laptop as soon as I walk downstairs after reading bedtime stories and tucking the little ones up in bed. I feel like I’m going in circles and hate feeling any pressure to ensure that I post SOMETHING.
I have always said that my blog is just that – mine and it’s to take in whatever direction I am feeling at that time. I am incredibly lucky that I don’t rely on my blog for a source of income nor do I have to meet certain targets for a third party but I have built up Twinderelmo over the past 21 months and I love what it’s turned into.
It has given me some amazing opportunities for my family, allowed me to “meet” some absolutely wonderful folk on t’Interweb and helped me let out some raw unbridled grief that otherwise would have festered and made me even more sad.
But what happens when the ideas run dry? When you break the routine of posting on such and such a day? And how do you get your writing mojo back?
I have no answers to any of these but I am insanely excited about the school holidays (remind me of this when I’m cursing!) and feel ready to take a slight step back and enjoy the days with my family. I am acutely aware that this time next year my babies will be just one summer holiday away from starting nursery and feel I want to savour this.
So you know what? A blogging hiatus is just what I need. For me and for them.
Enjoy your holidays guys
