Okay, I know we’re well into summer, in fact the count-down has begun for fall! That said, I think I have
spring summer fever. I’ve hit a wall with regard to any creative ideas for new posts. I was a little down about it until I read similar complaints from 2 other favorite bloggers. They were taking a break and/or cutting back for a while on their posts.
One of my favorite blog sites, for the love of a house, is taking a break due to “bloggers block” and another favorite My French Country Home is cutting back to regain some balance in her busy life. Sounds good to me.
Since I’ve been blogging in earnest I’ve met many creative and generous blog friends and I’ve felt as though I finally have a way of being creative while working a 40 hour week as an executive assistant. I enjoy my job but I love the joy of feathering my nest, keeping my garden (mostly) in order and entertaining family and friends. My site gives me the opportunity to journal various creative projects related to home and hearth.
So, for the rest of 2011 I will most probably post twice a week instead of my Monday, Wednesday, Friday current schedule and I’m giving myself a little vacation and will pick up this new schedule beginning September 8th. Please don’t forget about me, I’ll miss you all!
Have you ever had a lapse in your creativity?
I completely understand. You’ll have all your readers when you get back. I think sometimes stepping away and taking care of what you need to is necessary. As you know, I had to do it but not because I wanted too. I never thought of blogging on specific days – that might be something I consider I know all too well how it is when you work a full schedule and use your blog as an outlet. enjoy your time off and we look forward to seeing you when your back.
Thanks for your support and kind words. I’ve already started to think of some new post ideas. I’ll see you (virtual 🙂 on September 8th!

I think you’re long overdue to take a little break from posting 3 times per week. While I always love reading your blog, I’ll enjoy it just as much no matter how often you update it. I’ll continue to look forward to new posts whenever you have time to prepare them. In the meantime, enjoy a little free time – you’re earned it!
Thanks for your support…I’m ready for a little end of summer retreat and will have some fresh ideas (hopefully) when I return.
