Taking a Break from Blogging! – Monday Motivation

I read an article last week about blogging less. A few different reasons were given, however, these are the ones that struck a chord in me and made think about taking a break from blogging. Here’s why:

1. For higher views on posts.
2. More time to promote posts.
3. More time for the blogger!

Blogging Less & Taking a Break from Blogging

I can burn myself out trying to blog 7 days a week, though lately I have certainly had enough content! Therefore, since my VA business is growing thanks to USA Virtual Assistants, and it is going to be busy this summer with different farm activities getting in the groove of having animals and all; I thought I would try blogging three days a week starting in May, if not sooner. I haven’t decided which days, but I am leaning towards Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so I can truly have the weekends for my family. All too often I spend the weekend doing up my blog posts for the week since I am busy during the week days working on projects for clients. I’ll let you know for sure towards the end of April, if not before.

I would like to catch up on some overdue posts for Alternative Consumer, plus do some other guest posting as well. Most of all I just want to catch up on life at home. After all I don’t have to blog every day to make money, I just need some good old content and maybe I will write better posts if I took some time off.

Taking a break from blogging is my motivation this week! What about you what’s motivating you this week?

  1. I used to worry if I didn’t have new content every day, but lately I haven’t posted but 3-4 a week, and I’m okay with that.

  2. I think the important thing to remember is that you have to do what’s right for you.

  3. Crystal, it’s good to know that posting 3-4x/week is working for you. Just confirms what I have been thinking.

    Nicole, thanks and I think that’s where I need to be – doing what’s right for me and my family.

    I started blogging only 5 days a week a while ago and for a while I was lucky to get a post or two a week up when I fell into my funk. It definitely does boost the views on posts.

  5. Megan says:

    Sometimes we need a break and this sounds like it will be a good thing for you.

  6. Marcie W. says:

    It’s hard to not stress over blogging, especially once you’re making money. Taking a day off is well needed but makes me nervous, like it would with any job.

  7. Penelope says:

    I’m bookmarking this post, and i totally agree!

  8. I approach blogging like a job, so I only “work” 5 days a week. That being said, since my blog is about living the good life, I need to have time to walk the walk or my posts won’t ring true.

  9. I think finding balance is something we all need to do. Do what works for you and your family. Some weeks I post a ton, others not so much. I am working on using my editorial calender and that has helped me find more free time too!

    I echo everyone else. :) I prioritize… my family always comes first. Some days/weeks/months, I blog a lot. But there’s been times when I was lucky to blog once a week. Just like you, I have to do what’s right for me at the time.
