A little chat and a break...


I've managed to some how keep my blog going for two years, non-stop without a break. I done a whole year of posting pretty much five days a week, and since January, I've been doing 3 days a week.

But I am burnt out.

I started the blog back when I was on a 12 hour week contract with no over time, to being on the same contract - but doing full time 3 out of 4 weeks a month. Or sometimes a whole month. I've managed to work, do my blog, run my YouTube channel and do a whole host of things all at the same time. But for the past few months, I have really struggled.

I'm on full time for the next two weeks and with the 6am starts and 10pm finishes, it's got a little tricky for me to find a spare day to sit down and do three posts for the week, so I've had to draw the line and just take a step back for a second.

So until September 5th, I'm taking a two week blog break as of today - and also two weeks away from my YouTube channel.

I'm still going to be around on twitter, and likely will be sharing posts from my 2016 archive so far - as I've done so many! But I just want to spend 2 weeks not worrying about the blog and panicking that the content is shit.

I'd rather do good posts when I can, rather than half-assed ones because I'm in a rush, and the same for my videos. I have 2 blog post commitments for companies to do, so they will be done ASAP when I get back!

Hope you can all understand, and I'm sorry if I'm moaning a bit! Can't wait to catch you all up in a fortnight with new posts, and I'll hopefully be feeling a lot better! It's been ages since I had a blog break, and I've done my best to keep going, but I've had to wave the white flag and surrender on this one...

Thank you for reading this super long winded post and hopefully you all understand why I'm vanishing for a little bit!! I love you all - and as usual, hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

See you in two weeks! x

  2. Don't stress! In a year of blogging I've taken 3 breaks. I firmly believe if you're feeling burnt out, and not feeling happy with what you produce, you should take a step back. We all put so much effort into our blogs, it becomes like a second job. And we don't hesitate to take holidays from our day jobs, do we? So why should blogging be any different! Enjoy your break sweet, and come back refreshed and ready to go :D x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
