I Need a Break!

After struggling through January for blog post ideas and finding time to write, I've made a decision. For the month of February I'll only post the Funny Friday Photo posts.

It isn't you, it's me.

The last couple of weeks I haven't written fiction during the week. I'm a slow writer and when I'm putting together a blog post it takes me the entire night (well, the few hours that are left after doing mundane mommy-things) to finish a post. That takes away two nights during the work week, and then when life happens, I end up writing very little. If I'm going to finish another book I need to write it!

And the posts aren't very thought-provoking. Life has evened out into a blur of work, mommy, write, sleep and then start over. I don't want to waste everyone's time churning out blog posts just because I said I would. I'd much rather concentrate on getting Adven 2 completed, and write up fun Friday posts.

Of course, if there's something of interest to share I'll post outside of Friday. And don't be surprised if I have a little more chatting at the beginning of the Friday posts, to catch up on the week. But right now I think it's a good idea to drop back to once a week posts again.

If you are interested in keeping up with how the book is coming along more frequently, or sharing tales of every day observations, feel free to follow me on Twitter or my Facebook page. Twitter is where I am most, but I am trying to post a couple of times a week to Facebook as well. I will be having a giveaway soon on Facebook to celebrate passing 200 followers (it's actually close to 300 now), so if you want to be a part of that, you'll want to follow the page.

All right! I guess that's all there is to say. I'll see you on Fridays!

For all you other bloggers out there, have you made any similar decisions lately?

For all you blog readers - what kind of a giveaway do you like best? (I'm needing some ideas to make the Facebook giveaway special.)

  1. That's kind of funny cause just this past Sunday I got too lazy and didn't do a post. I don't plan on skipping every Sunday, but this Sunday came and went and I hadn't done one. I was trying to see how I could get one more mention of Sunday in that line, but couldn't figure it out. :)

    1. Yeah, that's kind of how I've been with all the Tuesday posts. I wasn't sure if someone was actually looking forward to one or not, so I'd write one, but it was easy to imagine not writing one, too. Life in general kind of feels like that. It's so mundane right now.

  2. We all need a break from blogging sometimes. It's fun and a valuable use of time, but sometimes we have to attend to other priorities instead. It's been a while since I've been able to update my own blog. I'm been putting some time into a new post, but it's hard to find time to finish it with school and all.

    You have a nice blog break, and I'll see you on Facebook and for Funny Fridays :)

  3. You have to work it out according to your own lifestyle and schedule. Hope editing my stuff doesn't bog you down too badly. I really treasure your input.
