So, I'm going to take a brief hiatus. Like, a week. Maybe two. I really want to get caught up on my drafts folder and all the half-baked posts in my head. I want to complete them without feeling like I'm rushed or need to hurry to post just for the sake of posting. Because then they'll likely be crappy and nobody wants that. I just need to take a deep breath, step back, refocus, and then dive back in. Part of my "calm the fuck down already" self-prescribed therapy has been to dig through my Pinterest craft board, so I have decided to try and make some things. Armed with not much info beyond the pictures themselves, I have raided Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart. It's a nice offline project. Because every time I get online, I get stressed out. By my unwritten posts. By my unread Reader. By the fact that I've managed to fill up my hard drive on my computer and now I have to go through eight years of files to condense and purge so that I can actually do things like have Photoshop AND iTunes open at the same time again. Plus I'm behind on my baking blog. Plus... you know what, it doesn't matter. I'm way behind on everything and it's stressing me out.

I just wanted to give you a heads up so that you didn't think something horrific had happened to me. Or, worse, decided to unsubscribe. HAHAHAHA priorities. Whatever. My connection's been crappy all night and when I went to hit "publish" it instead decided to go backwards and leave me with a half-saved draft. And so I ad to rewrite this entire post talking about how I wasn't going to write anymore posts until I was caught up. RAAAAAGE! Sigh.

ANYWAY. I'll be back when I have something interesting/finished to post again.

I will be right here!

Side note, I find that if you are worried about posting frequently but want to give good quality content as well, maybe have a recurring weekly feature that's really simple to put together? Like my Sweet Tunes Thursday (hell you can even steal that. I'm making a graphic this weekend).

Just a thought! That way you don't lose readers and if a new reader comes to your blog, it looks like you've been updating frequently.

You could do wordless wednesday with photos (which would be totally opposite of the regular posts), or flashback friday with old photos and a memory or two. :)
