Reasons To Stop… Reasons To Not…

I sit here often, thinking of taking a break.

A blogging break.

A real one.

You know, no visiting blogs, writing, reading, interacting… nothing.

Yet I can’t do it.

I think of the reasons to stop, yet there are arguments that voice themselves, making me think I can’t just up and disappear.

Reasons to stop

  • Real life is manic – whose isn’t though, eh!
  • My kids need to see me doing things rather than being on a pc or laptop a lot of the time… am I setting a good example?
  • That WIP isn’t going to get itself finished
  • Certain people think maybe I’m more involved in my online life than reality
  • No one is really going to miss me that much – I am one of millions of bloggers out there, there is plenty to read without my mindless ramblings

Reasons to not

  • I love my blogily
  • Reading and writing feeds my creativity
  • I love to spread positivity
  • I get to switch off from the worries of life and enjoy my time interacting with my friends around the world
  • I feel I can really be ‘me’ on my blog
  • I’m not in the right frame of mind to be writing my WIP at the moment but I don’t want to lose the love of writing
  • I am perfectly capable of switching off when I need to do other things (just!)
  • I enjoy it. This is my one outlet, my one stress reliever. I don’t drink, go out regularly with friends, go to the gym etc, this is my one ‘vice’ so to speak.

I did decide to post less… but I still end up on here at least once a day, taking part in creative prompts, and reading via my reader during the day.

I’m still sharing the odd posts for others, but not as active on my blogging group as I know that took a lot of time out of my days; on an interacting and sharing mission, I was – hands and eyes glued to my phone so I could be a fully active participant. I still do some days, but not every single one.

The long and the short of it is that I can’t let go. And I don’t want to. I have seen a few close blogging friends take that blog break leap, and know that it hasn’t affected their blog or interactions in the long run, but I just can’t!

I think my blog is keeping my sanity, in all honesty! I can rant, I can joke, I can be serious… and I know that y’all got my back!

So I guess you’re stuck with me Peeps!

Have a great Tuesday  – I need to go pack my bags for my road trip to my parents tomorrow!

 

My interactive peeps!
