BOOM! Like the phoenix rising from the ashes—okay okay so not that cool.

Posted on

Well, well, well….it’s true I have been on a very LONG blogging break. As this gorgeous fall season settles in on me and our bustling routines are underway, I was just sitting here wondering what I was up for “next”.  I have found that going with my “gut” always steers me in the right direction and I’ll be darned if it didn’t steer me right back to my little Cuppa Sunshine & Sugar!  I have to say that following your “gut” certainly keeps life interesting, and honestly, less stressful in the grand scheme of things. So that said, after much consideration of all of the “do’s” and “don’ts” and “tips” for blogging that I have spent countless hours devouring…I have come to the conclusion that my blog is just that “My Blog”! Ha! What a novel idea (insert *sarcasm*)…that I can just roll with it.  Without any rules or do’s or don’ts.  Just me.  What I want to put out there.  When I want to put it out there.  Just let it be an amazing little haven for creativity to share with my awesometastic readers.  The funny thing is, this is what it always should have been.  Ya know, before it turned into something else that I loved but wanted to retreat from.  If that makes any sense at all….?  So here I am.  Onward!

First course of business.  Truth Time!  While in the past I was maintaining a strict posting schedule routine and became a stats junkie…I believe this was an integral part of pushing me to take a break.  I guess it just took the fun and spontaneity out of it for me in a lot of ways. With the time commitment I was maintaining….I realized I had put too much pressure on myself and that was never the goal. SO!  Going forward I am just gonna post when I post and roll with it. ;) Second and final course of business today….I HAVE MISSED YOU—MY READERS!!!!!  I hope you all are well, filled with warm happy fuzzies and looking as dapper as ever!  I look forward to catching up with all of you and leave you with a FUNNY of course! Enjoy your day! ~Lisa

P.S.  In my honest opinion…just say no to selfie sticks.

    Oh girl, I totally feel ya on this one! I started my blog in February and went way too hard, way too fast and it was like getting a drink from a fire hydrant. I was totally wanting to run and hide several months into it. My posting schedule now is more random and I am putting less pressure on myself. Yeah, my stats are not even close to what they were, but I am enjoying it again. Glad to see you are back! And happy to hear that taking a break gave you some time to work things out.

      Thanks for the kind words. Glad I was not alone when finding this little speed bump on the blogging journey. 😅

    Welcome back! I’ve had to really scale back as well. When you want to run and hide from your blog, it probably isn’t the healthiest hobby anymore!😉 Glad to hear your little break gave you time to refocus and come back with a way less stressful approach.
