Unplugged: Annual Leave


I’m taking annual leave from online activities (blogging, facebook & twitter) for a couple of weeks.  I think it’s really important that I take this time for myself and for my family.  I know many other bloggers take a little time off in secret, and schedule posts to go live without them needing to actually do anything – but that’s not for me.  When my husband takes holidays I want him to switch off from work completely.  It’s only fair that I switch off (literally!) for two weeks too.

I know what will happen.  My stats will plummet.  My technorati ranking will take a dive.  I could drop off the Top 100 list.  I might even lose readers and followers and fans.  But I’m ok with all of those things, because love you though I do… my family come first.  Long before I was SquiggleMum, I was just Mummy.

I hope you’ll still be around when I plug back in on the 10th January.  Until then live well, laugh often and love much.

Blessings, Cath.

  2. I’ll still be here! You’re on my ‘Blessings’ list and I follow you. I’ve taken a holiday from Facebook for a few weeks, but will be back there sometime in the new year. See you when you get back and have a WONDERFUL holiday! :)

  3. Have a wonderful break Cath. I think this is a wonderful idea and i should probably do the same. It’s a great example you are setting! Switching off for a little bit is good for both your physical and mental health. Chat soon, Nic.

  4. Enjoy your break. You’ve just enlightened me on the hard work it takes to keep a blog like yours. I realised I was getting too stressed about not having a ‘good’ blog. It was taking away from family and fiction writing time so I decided to step right back and go for a regular newsletter.
    I’ll be back to check your blog.

  5. Of course we’re still here! I not only took a break from blogging but also from reading other blogs. Everything gets old after a while and it was nice taking a complete break from everything. Happy new year! xo
