Yeah. Me time. Very much needed right now.
After tomorrow, I will be on about a two week break from blogging. I need to rest myself a little. As I mentioned in a previous post, October really pushed me with my blogging. Along with the Halloween theme, which isn’t the easiest for me. I had the most requirements I have ever had and, to be honest, it kind of wore me out.
I will say that while I am taking the vacation for a couple of weeks, I will still be busy. First and foremost is that I have some things to do in RL before the first of the month. I have mentioned some stressors there recently and there are a few things I need to get done by December 1. Real life has to always take priority and having such amazing blogger managers who are supporting me in taking this time makes a world of difference.
I also have some things to work on blogging wise. I plan to use some of this time to learn some new PS skills. I mean…we only get better if we take the time to learn, right? I see so many amazing bloggers doing all of these neat tricks with their pictures. I want to learn some of those skills and incorporate them into my style. Also, with the latest update to PhotoShop…I feel kind of lost again in PS. lol
Last but not least, I have a big project I am working on for ECLIPSE Magazine. I am still keeping this one close to the vest for now. I plan to take a fair amount of time on this vacation to work on that as this is going to take some SERIOUS time and effort. Its going to be probably one of my biggest challenges yet, other than tackling the requirements I had in October. lol I want to make sure I get this project right.
One other thing too. And this is always a hard thing to talk about because I have been fortunate enough to blog for some of the most amazing creators. I am going to be shifting some of my energy with blogging. I will still be blogging fashion but I want to shift some of my energy over to decor blogging. I actually felt like I missed something in October only posting one true decor post. Routinely I blog two to three decor posts per month. I want to do a couple more decor posts per month, so I have to look at how best to focus on that. I have also put in some applications with some new decor teams. We will see how those pan out.
So yeah…its time to set the camera and pose stands down for a couple of weeks. We all need the breaks. It is self care to take those little vacations. Besides, without the breaks, we burn ourselves out. And with me having made it over a year and half now as a blogger, I really don’t want to burn out at this point.
All of you have been too sweet to me for me to step away from blogging. 🙂 ♥
