Back from a Blogging Sabbatical

Hey, everyone. Good to see you.

I haven’t blogged many new post for the last two months, and I think I’ve already made one other post apologizing for this, so I’d better get back to it in earnest.

But it was good to take a break from it. Every once in a while, you find that something you once enjoyed has become an expectation and it sucks the life out of it. Blogging is hard work. You not only need to post, you need to visit others’ blogs, like their stuff, comment on it, not because it’s an obligation or to get visibility, but because they’re working hard too and they deserve some kudos. 2.5 years of that is due for 2 months break. Right, guys? …guys?

Anyway, I’m going back to original posts Mondays and Thursdays starting next week. Tune in and have a great day meanwhile.

  1. Welcome back, Brandon. Yep, when it feels like an obligation or burden, and not a joy…it may be time to take break. I tend to take short ones fairly often for several days or even a week or so. I so get this.

  2. You are so right. I’ve been considering a sabbatical because I’m on burnout and my mind feels pretty dry. Not a bad idea. Look forward to seeing what comes on your blog! I always enjoy your work!

  3. Welcome back, Brandon! I think you capture the nuances that we don’t think about when we begin blogging in this series of statements: “Blogging is hard work. You not only need to post, you need to visit others’ blogs, like their stuff, comment on it, not because it’s an obligation or to get visibility, but because they’re working hard too and they deserve some kudos.” Over the years, I’ve learned that blogging is very much a communal experience and that we can’t be selfish or simply focus on our own blogs. We learn a lot from each other through encouragement and an exchange of diverse ideas. Look forward to reading your fresh posts in the weeks ahead. Blessings.

  4. I really appreciate your genuineness and consistency, Brandon. You have blessed and encouraged me more than you can know. I’m sure that sounds ridiculous, but there isn’t mush for genuine feed back and interest out there. Thanks again! And I’m glad you can come back refreshed from a break!
