Taking a little blogging break

February 06, 2016

I'm sure if you read this blog regularly, you must have been aware that I hardly have inspiration these days for blog posts that are original and interesting. I am a bit tired of blogging lately, and in my 2016 goals blog post I wrote that I want to reduce my time behind the internet. I think this is a good time to do so.

I must confess that I had this post as a draft for a while now, but I hadn't really had the courage to push the publish button, yet. But here we are. I am going to take a break from blogging. I can not tell you for how long. Either that be a week or a year. Although, between you and me, a year will be too long for me, I'm sure. But who knows.

I am blogging since 2009(!), so that's quite some time if you consider that I never took a break from blogging ever since that year. I will not quit this blog, but I have so many other things to do which have my utmost priority at the moment, that I have hardly any time for blogging. Plus, I lost inspiration. Even though I am a jack of all trades kind of gal, I think I am not sure how to give all that a place on this blog. To merge it with eachother beautifully, without it all becoming a messy and unorganized bunch.

I am a blogger who loves to take her time to compose a post; plan an hour or so in my agenda to write the post, sitting in a comfy chair with my laptop, sipping a cup of tea and nibble on a macaron. Or something like that. I love writing; it has always been my strongest trait, but the past year ... perhaps two ... I have lost it. And I think it's because I have been pushing myself to keep blogging, blogging, blogging - even when there was not even the slightest inspiration.

I am a perfectionist to the core (Hi, Capricorn here) and my blog was challenging me and tiring me in this context. Because my posts, somehow, never became what I had imagined them to be, yet I kept pushing myself. We all know that that doesn't work.

I will also reduce my time on Instagram and Facebook. I am rarely on Facebook since a year or two actually, and Instagram is also a bit neglected these days. At the moment, I just can't keep up with the pace of the Internet, and I really don't have to. I don't want to.

Again, I am not sure how long this break will be. A week. Two weeks. Three months. Six months. Or a year. Time will tell. I will not dissapear from the radar altogether. My Instagram will be used, but just less so. The same for Twitter and Pinterest.

Keep an eye out, because I will be back, with, hopefully, more outfit posts, captivating content and other things. I have lovely things planned with friends, I have also amazing photoshoots upcoming, so I am sure when I am ready to blog again, you will read all about it.

By the way: I do have a few pre-written posts upcoming on my food blog, so if you are interested in my foodie- and kitchen adventures ... head over to Dash of Nostalgia. (It's written in Dutch, though). I will be active there a little longer.
