I’ve been pondering this for awhile but now feels like the right time. It’s the middle of fall, I’ve recently finished up some freelance projects, and want to take a break from all the todos and just enjoy time with my little family. I felt inspired to take a blog fast after listening to my friend’s experience with fasting and a recent sermon at our church on fasting. I tend to forget fasting doesn’t have to be just from food!
Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging but when I start feeling like my blog is just another todo, I know it’s time for a break. So I’m taking the month of October off from blogging AND reading blogs (that one may be harder even!) I’ll be back in November hopefully feeling refreshed and full of new ideas and projects. I’ll still be posting on instagram so you can follow me there in the meantime :).
Thanks for understanding friends!
Don’t want to leave you picture-less so here’s a favorite I came across today:
Have a wonderful October!
I posted the exact same sentiment on my private FB page. I feel that way too right now – wasn’t sure if I was done, but definitely need a break.
Sad for me, excited for you! I’ll miss reading but have already found you on IG 🙂 Have a great break!!
Good for you! I have been feeling the same lately, but more so on unplugging. I haven’t been on facebook in a week and feel so good about it! I plan on deleting it this soon. I don’t know if I could stay away from instagram though 🙂 Sad, I’ll miss your post but enjoy it!
Totally understand ; I’m taking a fast from Twitter as we speak.
My mind needs a rest ; it all goes so fast !
So I took up some of my creative skills again and started knitting for all these babies that are due in these next months !
Allow me to follow you anyways, I’m waiting for an inspiring blogpost somewhere in November, meanwhile .. inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale and enjoy !!
I keep forgetting that you’re taking a blog fast. I kept coming back in anticipation that you posted something then remembered. I hope you will keep the blog up after the fast is over. I really enjoy your blogs!

[…] up that I’ve neglected by blog (amongst other things) this month. My initial hope in taking a blog fast was to come back feeling excited and inspired but to be honest, I came back feeling tired and […]
