Don't Be Afraid to Take a Break

Now, I know I preach all the time about how important it is to keep up your blog. The reality is, if you're going to have a blog, you need to post. Period. End of story.

However … I came across a post not too long ago on DailyBlogTips.com that I found quite interesting. The post, by guest author Bob Bessette, was titled 5 Reasons to Take a Break from Your Blog.

It immediately caught my attention. Bob offered some excellent insight into the benefits of taking a break, including:

1. Gives you time to reflect. What I realized, when I actually had the time to think about it, was that blogging was introducing a lot of stress into my life. The stress wasn’t because I didn’t enjoy writing my posts. The stress was caused by the pressure I was putting on myself by trying to adhere to a regular posting interval.

As someone who recently started blogging again, I found Bob's post refreshing. Yes, it's true that you must keep up your blog (I still firmly believe that), but you don't want to get burned out either.

Check out the rest of Bob's post here.

Oh, and Happy Halloween!
