Maybe you have noticed and then again, maybe you haven’t. I have been on a blogging hiatus. This hiatus was an unscheduled break and an interruption in my efforts as a blogger and a writer.
My first experience with this sort of hiatus dropped in on me last year after I had completed the 30 day April A-Z Challenge. Again this year after posting everyday of the month for theApril challenge my creative ideas were depleted. I even found my brain couldn’t focus on the simplest Wordless Wednesday post. I think I owe Frizztext a couple of posts for the A-Z Archive Photo Challenge.
Then there was the added busyness of my 9-5 job during the month of May; Mother’s Day celebration, Baby Dedication weekend, Outdoor Church Wide Baptisms, Graduation Recognition and Corporate Communion for 3000 people. Whew…
Everything that was on my plate overwhelmed me and I just had to say NO to something.
“Sometimes we have to say No to good things so that we can say YES to even better things.”
My blogging hiatus has given me the opportunity to spend time with friends and family. There have been graduation parties at the park and birthday celebrations on the river. There was a fishing tournament that benefits returning wounded veterans and new car shopping.
I have missed the camaraderie of my like-minded blogging friends…I have missed reading about your comings and goings…your real and imagined stories…your delcious recipes…and your junkin’ excursions…and your wonderful photos that usually take my breath away and leave me wishing I was there and thankful that you have shared your view of the world with me.
I think June will see my back banging away on the computer. In the meantime…
Unscheduled blogging hiatus’ can be one of those even better things…see you in June!
