Getting disconnected

For the last couple weeks, I've been feeling kind of blah about blogging and the Internet umbilical cord I've somehow managed to get attached to. I love blogging and checking others' blogs, but I'm getting a little burned out. I think a bit of a break is in order. Enough to recharge my batteries and get me excited again rather than feeling like blogging and blog-reading is a chore - an obligation I've imposed on myself.

So, I'm going to take a break for a while. Maybe a week or two or three. Maybe longer. If I sew something and feel like blogging about it, then I will, but I'm not going to give myself any sort of requirements. If I don't feel like blogging then I won't. I'm participating in a few swaps and one bee so I'll for sure stay active in Flickr to keep up with those responsibilities.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what my plans are so I'm not just leaving you hanging. I really think this will do me some good. AND, I want you all to know how much I truly appreciate all your comments that have kept me blogging this last year. You really are the best and I will miss you while I'm on sabbatical.

Till then...

I have been feeling the exact same way. I feel myself slowing down on the whole blogging thing. I cut almost 100 blogs out of my reader last week to minimize my collection of blogs. I also don't have the time to sew that I used to. I might be joining you soon on your blogging hiatus.

Good for you! I think we all need a break at sometime or another. Enjoy the freedom!

(And isn't it funny, you/we feel obligated to tell people about time off/away...)

Take as much time as you need, we'll be here when you get back!!
Oh and if it helps...I added this button http://www.tartx.com/blog/?page_id=233
to my blog and for whatever reason it took the pressure off. Maybe it could do the same for you.

I know how you feel, my blog reader is getting out of control. I recently imposed a moratorium on adding more blogs to it! We'll miss you, but I'm sure the break will do you good!
