Hello and Goodbye

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Not quite sure why that was the first thing that popped into my head to write in this post, but it did. This is going to be one really quick post just to say that, yes, I am still alive and, yes, I realise I have been posting a lot less than I used to.

I'd love to have a brilliant explanation for why that is, but I don't. I'm just exhausted right now. I have very limited energy and getting ready for my new job as a manager has actually been stressing me out quite a bit. I really want to get a good amount of content scheduled before I start posting again, so that I can try and actually keep up with everything blog wise. I say that all the time though and it never seems to happen, so we shall see how well that goes.

I have some time off now before I officially start the new job, so that's when I hope to get some scheduling done. I'm going to be taking a week or two off from blogging at least. Then I hope I will be able to come back feeling refreshed, with more energy and actually get on top of things blog wise. Probably not, but a girl can dream.

  3. Good luck with the new job - I know it's easier said than done but try not to stress too much, you were given this job for a reason - because you will clearly be an excellent Manager! As for blogging, I'm just glad you're not quitting altogether because when I read the title of this post that's what my first thought was, swiftly followed by NOOOOooooo!!!! See you soon! :D

  9. omg, I had a small heart attack because I thought you might be stopping forever AND THAT WOULD MAKE ME CRY A LOT. I completely understand though. Have a super good break and DON'T FEEL GUILTY! Blogging can wait. We will all be here. ;-) Good luck with starting this job. *hugs*

  10. Sometimes life just gets in the way of the fun stuff. Take some time out to look after you first, and then worry about the blogging stuff. It's so easy to get stressed about when you should be blogging or whatever and then it becomes a chore. Starting a new job is stressful and I hope it all goes really well for you!

    1. Not for good. But I keep coming back and then disappearing agai, which isn't good. Hopefully I stick around for a while.

  14. I know I'm as late as hell - but seeing as I assume your break is now over, I hope your new job is going well. Hey, we both started new jobs at roughly the same time, didn't we? Oh no wait (Just scrolled up to check date of this post) I started mine at the end of Feb. XD I hope it's going well!
