I recently saw that my fellow blogger Katie has decided to take a break from blogging during the season of Lent. She is using that time to spend with her husband and on other devotional activities. I was so inspired by her post that I too, have decided to step back from blogging, but only for the month of March.
I will be reading and searching through recipes all month deciding what to make for my first post after I return in April (any suggestions??).
Why the short break? I feel that stepping back for a month will force me to bake soley for the enjoyment of myself, friends and family. I will get hugs and thank-yous instead of comments. I will only have the memory of the dessert instead of photos to swoon over. I will not be sharing each new goodie with thousands but instead with a handful. A select handful of individuals that are the sole reason that I began the blog in the first place.
I LOVE to blog and share my feats and failures with the blogging community. I take pride in my goodies even if they do not turn out as expected. I love sharing my recipes and get super giddy reading your comments and feedback. It can be a real ego bosster. But, I don’t want to ever take you guys for granted (as I have with some of my friends and family) and this temporary seperation will only make my heart grow fonder for blogging. Trust me, this hurts me more than it will hurt you.
I do not want to minimize how important you, fellow bloggers and visitors, are to me. The blogging community is like a second family to me and trust me, I will miss you greatly and hope you will return with me in April!
Before I return I will need your help! If you have a cookie, bar, cake or dessert recipe you want me to make upon my return, leave the link or recipe in the comments section or email it to me. The selected goodie will be my first post back! You will get the credit and a shout out!
