Taking a break

I have been procrastinating for a few months now about closing down my blog-but I just can't bring myself to do it.
I haven't been a very good blogger for the last 12 months and I kept thinking why do I bother.
I have not been doing much of anything that would excite me let alone any of you and as you know I have not been well either.
I still can't bring myself to close the blog down so what I am going to do is just take a break and see what happens.
I will still visit you-I may not leave a comment but I will think about you.
I just hope that this break will help me get my act together.
Take care everyone.

Best wishes, Doreen. I hope you soon feel better and get back to blogging. Your work is always inspiring - and even your tales of struggling with creative work reassure those of us who think that everyone else produces work effortlessly.

All the best Doreen, I sometimes wonder the same things...it also takes up a fair amount of time which perhaps could be put to better use.....as I survey my huge garden that needs a lot of work! Whatever you decide, may it be right for you.

We'll miss your cheery posts Doreen, but I know you need to do what's best for you and only you know what that is. Take care of you my friend.

Best wishes Doreen, I will miss you. I hope you will be feeling much better soon. Enjoy your break. You are firmly on my list so I will know when you return. Take care.

Best wishes Doreen, you will be missed. I do hope that you begin to feel well enough to start blogging again after a good rest.

I am a very inconsistent blogger Doreen but keep coming back. I hope you will feel able to do the same. Take care of yourself and do what is best for you.xx

I will be happy to see your blog whenever you feel like writing it, all the best Doreen.

Doreen, we all have to do what's best for ourselves. I know I had at first begun blogging 3 times a week, but then I felt pressured. I became inconsistent in my blogging, too, and now I blog once a week on each of my two blogs (one is a group blog) IF I want to, or if I have something to share. Sometimes I'll just blog 1/week and sometimes once/2weeks.
I shall miss your posts. I hope that your break will give you the time you need to return to blogging. Sending you a hug.

Oh Doreen, please don't close it down completely. I would hate to lose contact with you (I don't do Facebook), and I love seeing your craft projects as well as family news.
I never feel pressured to post in my blogs (all 10 of them, lol!) and there are several that I haven't posted anything on for a year or more. But I keep them alive because now and then there is something I want to show my cyberspace friends in a particular category on a blog. The ones that I do write in regularly are my way of keeping a record of what I do, regardless of whether anyone else reads them or not.
So, just do your own thing; when and if your mojo returns, you have an audience out here who will be happy to see you :-)

Doreen, I've been so absent from blogging recently that I just now read this.

I hope taking a good long break will convince you to come back but I understand if you don't. I'll miss seeing all your beautiful artwork though. Take good care of yourself.

Very best wishes to you Doreen - you were always so supportive to me and others when we were new to blogging - hope the rest brings new energy for you.
