What would you do if you saw this on a blog: “I will be away from my blog for the next two weeks, if you need immediate attention… wait until I get back please.” Can (and should) bloggers take a vacation from blogging?
In a very short period of time, I have become a blog addict. While I was planning my two weeks vacation to Hawaii, I was also planning my “blogging” time and what I would cover while on vacation! I was trying to figure out when I would have time to read blogs and write posts without driving my partner crazy!
But I realized since I got here that I needed a real break from everything, not just from my office job. I needed to totally unplug for a bit! And probably lose the few readers I actually managed to attract along the way.
I do want to write about my trip, I just don’t feel like doing it while I am travelling. There is so much to do here. I have been to Oahu, Maui and I am now in Kona on Big Island. It has been amazing. Just came back from a three hours sunset boat cruise with dolphins swimming on the side of the boat! Yesterday I was on top of the most active volcano on earth (that is what it says on the sign). Almost took the full vacation to finalize this short post so I could get readers’ and bloggers’ opinion of this topic.
I have seen experienced bloggers re-publish old post or just take a break but it seems that most bloggers, maybe mostly newer, just try to stick to a schedule while on vacation.
I miss not reading other bloggers’ post and not responding to comments on my blog, but I am also looking forward to catching up when I get back next week. It has been an amazing two weeks and great to totally unplug, hope you can forgive me:)
So what do you think, can (and should) bloggers take a vacation from blogging?
