I realize I probably should have shared a reader survey before the beginning of a new year, but with all five of our kiddos here over their break from school, a lot got away from me. Nonetheless, I’m sharing one now and I would love your thoughts and input on how I’ve been doing, what you want more of, and even your ideas for future posts. If you wouldn’t mind, could you please take a few minutes to answer my short 10 question survey?
I’m a bit behind with sharing and you may have noticed an absence here over the past few days. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with posting and I wanted a breather. I could feel a burnout coming on and knew I needed to take a step back to just hang out with my family and be lazy. That’s the beauty of working for yourself. Though I do miss this community very much. However, bringing high quality content to you is something I take seriously. I spend hours and sometimes days or weeks preparing some of my posts. I love what I do, so it rarely feels like work to me, but (and we all knew there was a but coming!) without having some posts scheduled ahead of time or an editorial calendar for me to stick to, it’s very hard for me to keep up; which in turn ends up being a source of stress in my life.
This is why I’ve decided to take a small week-long break. I’ll be spending the next several days preparing fabulous new content, reading your survey responses, and creating an exciting editorial calendar filled with new content! Please stick around and be patient. I’ll be back shortly, I promise. I love blogging entirely too much to stay away for too long. And as usual, I’ll be active via social media, so be sure to follow me on your favorite platform.
