It's All or Nothing - I'll See You in March!

Last month I shared my blogging resolution with you.  I set a goal to limit my blogging time and see how that went.  I wanted to see how much I could get done in a certain amount of time each day, and if I couldn't get something done in that time, it would have to wait.  I also wanted to see how much "other stuff" I could get done in my leftover time.

I was asked to share a follow up with you, and I did- one week after posting my original post.  That was when I renewed my resolution because quite frankly, I wasn't doing a good job of sticking with it!  Now, one month later, I am here to tell you that yet again, I am starting over.  Basically, I failed at my resolution for the month of January.  I did have some good days where I stuck to my goal, but I'm not too pleased overall.  

In my original post, I wrote that it was "to be reviewed at the end of the month and adjusted as needed".  So, that's what I'm doing.  I've been thinking about this for several days, and I've finally decided to make an "all or nothing" move with this blog.  Just like last month's resolution, this one will not be permanent.  Basically, you guys, I'm not doing so well with the whole moderation thing.  It's frustrating me and I am done with waiting around for myself to do better.  So, I'm cutting myself off (mostly) for a month.

I'm taking a blog break for the month of February.  

I'm hoping this will give me some time to remember what life is like completely sans blog- to get some of the things done that I keep running out of time to do (sewing projects, photo yearbooks, etc.) and to just clear my head of blog stuff for a while.  I'm hoping that coming back to blogging in March, I'll be able to re-try the moderation thing and hopefully do better.




Details:

I'll post the Sharing Time Link Party on Saturday and the same Sharing Time post will remain up for the month, so you can come back any time throughout the month to add links to it and check out each others' awesome posts.

I plan to return to the blog in full force in March! (Technically, I'll be back on the 28th- I have a book review for you that day!)

I have a lot going on in February, so I will be taking photos and will be ready to share a lot with you when I get back to blogging.  I will have 4 parties to share with you, as well as Talia's baptism.  I have recipes ready to share and at least a couple of product reviews coming.

February is my birthday month AND I am taking a solo trip to Utah to visit my little sister who is having her third little girl sometime around Valentines Day! (I can't wait to meet her & take pictures of her!)  While I'm on my blog break, you can check out some past photography posts of my sister & her family here:  Hilary & Eric 2007 (this was not long after I got my first camera ;), Hilary Maternity 2008, Baby Sierra 2008, Sierra is One 2009, Baby Brooklyn 2011, Family Photos 2012.  It's fun to look back at these and see my photography in years past :)

Don't miss me too much while I'm gone ;)  And please don't forget to come back here in March!  (but come back every now & then in February too, to see the great posts that will be linked up to Sharing Time :)
