blogger break

I've decided to take a break from blogging.  I need time to clear my head, and I want to find a time when I'm not constantly asking myself "What should I blog about?"
Right now my blog has become a place for negativity and complaining.  When overall, that isn't me.  And that isn't my life.  I have so much to be thankful for, and I am truly blessed.  And I feel that is not what I'm portraying.  I feel like I've given this impression that I'm unhappy, when that just isn't the case. 
I remember when MySpace first came out.  I logged onto that site every single night, and would spend hours doing who knows what.  I remember thinking "I can't ever imagine my life without MySpace.  Without logging in, seeing what's going on etc..."  Well like most things in life, the cycle of MySpace came to an end and there was eventually an evening without logging in.  Then the unthinkable happened, I closed my MySpace account.
A few years ago I had that same feeling about this blog.  When I was working out 5 days a week, and therefore blogging 5 days a week, because I created this pattern of blogging every time I worked out.  It was almost like an obsession.  I couldn't see my life without the blog.  And now I just want to remove myself from it.
I can see myself coming back to the blog periodically, posting updates etc...and I hope that one day I'll come back more frequently.  But right now, I just want to get rid of the pressure of updating my blog.  I suppose it is silly to make such an announcement, but I just didn't want to drop off the face of the blogging world and leave my few readers wondering.
It's so amazing how there is a shift in priorities.  And this blog just isn't a priority anymore. 
I will, of course, still read the blogs that I read, and comment. 
I think this is a much needed break, and one that'll do me some good. 
Until next time...

Sad! I love blogs for the personal interaction--you get so much more than on facebook here--but my blogging has also died down a little. It's hard to keep on top of right now, but I still love it. I'll miss you.

Went through something similar with facebook and now I'm glad that I'm not on it. So good for you, even if I'll miss getting updated on your life.

Good for you April! Although, you should never feel like you have to explain yourself to anyone! I didn't view you as down or negative at all, I see you as a human being with real feelings. Nothing wrong with that one bit! As far as the update on your blog, it was kind of you to update us so we don't worry! :)

Now that you aren't blogging as often and Emily has made her blog available via invite only, I think my baking activities might have just doubled! :)
