Why I’m Taking a Break from Blogging


For the last couple of days I’ve been trying to write this post. I type a few words and then just as quickly I delete them…

You see, for almost seven years, blogging has been my everything. It was the thing that held me together when I was falling apart with Postnatal Depression. It’s the reason I set my alarm for 5:30 every morning. It’s made all my creative dreams come true.

But lately, it feels like blogging is taking more than I can give. Digital media is a very hungry beast and the pace of conceptualising and producing content is heady.

I thought I would catch my breath over the new year and be ready to jump back into it by now. But I’m not.

Instead, I feel a pull to step away from the computer. I need to create white space. I need to find a new flow between work and home.

So, I’m taking the rest of January off. It’s been a hard decision to make. I’ve always felt a bit scared to stop…of missing out on opportunities. But now the opportunity cost of not pausing is just too great.

You’ll still find me sharing a few bits and pieces on Facebook and Instagram, but there won’t be any new blog posts until the calendar ticks over to February.

Until then, take care and I’ll see you very soon
