Whoops! I totally forgot to tell you all that I wrote a guest post on the 7th at Debbi’s from This Lovely Life!
So….go read about how Lboy runs a very tight tight tight ship! I’m pretty sure most of you can totally relate!
I have taken a few days off of blogging. Yesterday, I totally didn’t enter the internet world at all. It was a nice break. I’ve been feeling bogged down by it all–it’s becoming a chore & I’m trying to keep it fun. When it feels like it’s too much I just take a break (I have to post this, I have to link this, I have to check out twitter, I have to check my email or people will quit coming to visit or other crazy overwhelming thoughts.)
I am reading comments though & do plan on getting back to everyone! But right now I’m just reading a book & more importantly hanging out with my two & half men (the half being the puppy!) Lboy is cutting FIVE, yes 5 teeth, and I just think he needs more attention than my blog does– but I hope to be back in full swing soon!
Go check out my post at Debbi’s for a good laugh and I hope you have a great Tuesday!!!
Do any of you get overwhelmed with blogging? What do you do when that happens?!
Enjoy the break. It's nice to not be near a computer for a few days. Resets the head and heart.

A day or two of a break always cures what ails you! Enjoy.

That's awesome. Unplugging is so refreshing and necessary. 🙂
I definitely get overwhelmed with blogging! Sometimes it starts to feel like an obligation which is not fun. I then try and take a break and relax… and change my attitude towards it – and only blogging when I want to. Good luck!
A break will definitely recharge you. I get that way too overwhelmed and unplugging does good for our souls 😀

I start feeling soooo overwhelmed sometimes! A break usually does it for me! I hope LBoys mouth is hurting too much.
I blog because I have tons of downtime at work, so it keeps me from going insane haha
What most bloggers do is to take breaks on weekends. If you don't post on weekends, I promise it won't affect your page visits because most bloggers don't read blogs on weekends anyway!! Saturday and Sunday are usually low number days for me, and I don't even touch a computer, but everything goes back to normal every Monday.
I also went on vacation for an entire week recently. Obviously my numbers went down while I was gone, but the day I put up my first after-vacation post, I was back to 100%. Readers don't go away after just a few days, so don't feel pressured!
i wrote about this the other day when i was thinking about giving up alabaster cow. a break is always good but glad you're back!! 🙂
Breaks are good….enjoy yours! And you know what? Blogs will still be here when you come back!
I have been feeling the same way. I haven't blogged as much this week as I normally do.
I do sometimes get overwhelmed with blogging and like you, I just take a break. It seems like we need a break from it once in a while to avoid getting burnt out. Enjoy your time with your boy!
hey, i'm hosting a blog boycott day on friday where we tweet instead of bloghop. in case you are interested.

OMG, 5 teeth at the same time???? Poor kid!! AND poor mama!!!!
I hear you on the pressure we put upon ourselves to write / blog. I actually addressed in my blog yesterday. No need to apologize as in the end (most of us) blog for us and not necessarily for the outside world as the #1. You have no reason to need to apologize. Just take a break and return when you feel refreshed and ready to go again.

I don't think I've taken a full day off in the whole year I've been doing this. I do take mental breaks from it though, not posting or not commenting for a day or two. Hope you have a refreshing breather!

I can't imagine blogging every day. I'm lucky if I get to it once a week, but my blog is about quilting, and I'm lucky if I get to do that once a week too. I don't read every day either, so I don't mind bloggers taking days off. It's easier for me to catch up!
