blogging takes time. a lot of time. and some times, you need a life break. don't be afraid to take a break from blogging to focus on other things. I spotted evite's blog hiatus (photo above) and wanted to share it with you. They told their readers that they are working on some new projects and will be back in a few months. I like how they gave a time line and also that they left links to some of their previous posts. Once you get up and running and need to take a break, then go for it. But don't leave your community hanging - they will come back to see you and if you are not there after many months then I wouldn't count on them coming back.
Blog Out Loud's hiatus tip - consider scheduling 1 photo post a week on Fridays to encourage your readers to enjoy the weekend. Or something like that. Photo posts are simple and you are at least staying a bit connected while your focus is somewhere else. Most blogging platforms allow you to schedule the date and time so take some time to do that. It's worth it!
