I'm taking a break.

Monday, March 15, 2021

Hey guys.

I have a little bit of sad news today.

I've decided to temporarily put a hold on blogging.

This is something that I've been thinking about doing for quite a while now. When quarantine first started and I found my way back into blogging, I loved it. It kept me preoccupied when we were all bored out of our minds. But now, I've lost some of the joy that I had for blogging. 

So for now, I've decided to take a break. It may be a week, it may be a month, it may be a year, who knows! And I can't guarantee that I'll ever come back to blogging. I've had to make a. lot. of sacrifices for this blog, and I feel like now is the time that I stop making those sacrifices. You only live once, and as a 13-year-old, I still have a lot of life ahead of me. Every single one of you mean so much to me, and I will be forever grateful of all the support that I've received. Seriously, I would have stopped blogging a long time ago if it weren't for you all. But, I feel like the time is right that I start sleeping in, stressing less, focusing on my goals, regaining a good social life, focusing more on my relationship with God, and so many other things that I haven't been able to do. 

So yeah, I'm taking a break. I appreciate and love every single one of you. I would not be where I am today without your endless love any support.

Bye.

  4. Enjoy life and live it to the fullest! Pop in occasionally (no set schedule) and let us know what you've been up to! When you take the pressure off it all becomes more fun!

  5. Ella I completely understand. I have been blogging since 2005. I have done it off and on. Taken many yearly breaks. Sometimes a 5 year break and vowing to never return. I came back recently because it's just something fun to do. But I feel you. Sometimes you get sucked into the blog world and lose focus of what's in front of you. That's why I only post what is interesting to ME. I did so many link ups and redundant posts about nothing interesting on my old blogs. That's when I knew it was time to take a step back, focus on life and live a little. Then one day (like today!) I will have interesting things to talk about.

    You are 13 and you DO have so much ahead of you. It's perfectly okay to step on back and do you. But don't be a stranger!! If you have an Instagram let me know! Mine is @bigsmallnerd :)

  10. Ella, I have so enjoyed your blog and getting to know you through this space. Know that you will be dearly missed, but also, I totally understand. I go through phases where I take a break from the blog too. Currently I have been on a big break from social media. I deactivated my accounts last November and thought it would be for a couple weeks, and now here we are months later. We need to do what's best for ourselves. Hope you gain a lot from this time away.

  11. Sometimes you just have to take a break from things that don't align/light you anymore- and that's totally okay! Wishing you a good break and all the best. :)
