Blogging Break

I've decided to take another break from blogging. With all the changes going on in my life, I just can't give the time I would like to it at the moment. I'm conscious of the fact I'm not responding to comments and emails, or visiting my friends blogs. More than that, what I need now is some time free from pressure. I need to concentrate on me and where I'm heading in the short-term. I also want to get back to reading and writing for the pure enjoyment of it, and to concentrate on my novel. I hope that makes sense.

I'm not disappearing altogether, though. I will still be on Facebook, and posting updates. If you've not friend requested me, please click on the link to your right. I'd like to stay in touch. I will also be checking my email every week.

For everyone who is about to embark on the A to Z Challenge, have fun. To you all - the best of luck with your writing dreams and take care.

  1. We all need a break now and again - enjoy the time away! I'm doing the A to Z, and after that I'll probably take a short break as well :-)

  2. Ellie,

    We love you and will be here waiting for your return... remember life first, blog second. Well you know there is a bunch of things in between those two.

    All the Best!

    Your good friend,
    Jeremy

  3. No worries, Elle. We all have moments in our life where one area requires more focus than another. I hope everything is okay. Just know I'll be thinking of you.

    I'm in dire need of a blogging break as well. I, too, have had life toss me around over the last seven months. I plan on taking the summer off from blogging to regroup and truly hammer out my books.

  9. Even though I will miss your posts in the meantime, I'm glad you're taking a break. It is good to prioritize, and if blogging is getting in the way of your creative process, it must take a back seat to your other writing endeavors.

    I'm going to muddle through the A-Z Challenge this year, and then probably scale back to 2 posts a week thereafter. I have various commitments that demand my attention, and the blog must remain recreation, rather than a driving force of one's life.

    Someday, a blog post will write itself for you. That is when you should post again.

  12. Ellie,
    Enjoy your blogging break. I am always tempted to take one, too. I have not read for pleasure in a really long time, so I totally understand.

  16. Hi Ellie, I haven't been in touch for awhile and was excited to see you on the A - Z ...

    I'm sorry that you are going through a rough time, and I'll be keeping you in my prayers.

  17. I understand your need to take a break and figure out where you're going short-term and do what's best for you.

    Take it easy and I hope you find what you're looking for.

  23. Taking a break is perfectly acceptable. It will help you renew your energies and focus on what needs to be taken care of in your life, right now. Will look forward to your next post.

  24. Breaks are a good thing. Blogging shouldn't devour one's life.

  25. I know you've taken a break from blogging, but I've tagged you here if fancy it.
