Why taking a break from blogging isn’t a bad thing

September 27, 2015

Hi everyone, it’s me, Christine! And i’m back…sort of, at least for a little while I hope.


Hee. Get it. Whine and cheese…Brie…lol

If you are one of the 10 loyal readers of my blog you may have noticed that I have taken yet ANOTHER extended hiatus from my blog. And why? Well…..

a) It was summer and I had funner things to do. Like ride my bike a lot in a lot of fun places (which I will post about)
b) I felt like I had nothing of any importance to say (or at least felt like it was nothing that y’all would want to hear)
c) I felt like everything out there on the Interwebz that I did read or watch was making me want to crawl into a ball of despair and inadequacy and give up on this blogging thing for once and for all. I mean, who am I really compared to all these AMAZING writers and pinners and instagrammers out there.

So, thanks to a little tough love from a dear friend of mine and a few comments from 3 of my 10 loyal readers I’m  going to try this again. But I have to warn you, sh*t’s gonna get real.

I promise you I’m going to be 100% no-filters-on honest. And I might lose a few of my 10 readers but maybe, just maybe some of you might appreciate the honesty. I know I sure do when I read a truly honest post.

So hang in there with me cause tomorrow i’m going to post about something that made me react more strongly than someone swiping my glass of cold Pinot Grigio or a flat tire after a long climb and no spare in the camelback.

And thank in advance for listening.

    Welcome back! You won’t lose me:) Also, I fight those feelings all the time. There is so much talent and awesomeness out there but I like to think that the “me” we bring to our writing makes

    Don’t know if I factored into your ten, but am following and am reading what you’re throwing down.

    Bring on the real sh*t. That’s what I want to read more of. Life isn’t perfectly curated.
