Last week, I took a little break from blogging. I do this every couple of months just to keep myself sane. A lot of you guys are bloggers, too, and I’m sure you know how stressful it can be to keep up. A break now and then is a great way to reevaluate and figure out what’s working and what’s not.
For me, I was getting way too overwhelmed with Instagram. I started spending too much time scrolling through my feed and commenting until my poor, tired fingers could no longer swipe. I believe that the best way to build up a following is to get out there and reach out to as many people as possible by leaving comments, but when it dawned on me that I hadn’t washed my dishes in a week because I was too busy doing that, I knew I needed to cool it.
On the other hand, I really missed taking and editing pictures. I felt like I was getting into a good groove with my photos lately, and it was hard to not go out and stage a shoot for a whole week. More than anything else with this blog, I really love posing for the camera and then going back home to geek out in Lightroom.
What about you? Do you guys take breaks too? If you do, have you learned something about your blog during your time off?
