Something I Never Thought I'd Say.

This will be my last daily blog for a while.

I'm a competitive little vegemite and hate giving up on a challenge - but to be honest? Since the day I started this blog in April 2006 (with the exception of my New Zealand holiday last year) I have blogged every single day. Hell, I've technically already completed Blog 365. I have no shame in throwing in the towel on this one.

I value you guys too much to post crap.
I've got loads of things to say but not much energy to post them.
I need to take a wee break.

(Ha! A wee break.)

It's time to take a step back.

We'll be here when you get back, kiddo.

Don't be weeing on yourself or in your pants or anything!

Viviane said...

Good for you to take a creative break when you need it! I have been in that situation before that I had things to write about but did not have the energy to write or just was not able to put my thoughts into a coherent text.
I'm looking forward to your return though! ;)

Kat said...

Yeah, we will not be going anywhere. Enjoy your creative break and I hope to see you around, refreshed and with lots more LOLcats

mooiness said...

I think your record is pretty amazing. I'd imagine that it would feel forced occasionally if you try and keep up the daily posting. I know it did for me. Anyways, quality over quantity is always a good thing. :)

Deutlich said...

Understand wholeheartedly

Seriously.

QueenBee said...

Oh girl. I am there right now. Sometimes you want to post, but don't have anything worthwhile to say. Or sometimes you want to post, but don't have the mental capacity to make it what it should be.

I totally understand. Go with it, girl. :-D

katelin said...

As long as you're not leaving forever (or for too long) then I say take a break! Enjoy your life. And come back with some great stories :)

Allie said...

Have a great break!

Brie said...

You go get rested up. We'll be here when you get back.

Mick said...

Aly, as much as I love reading you every day, I think you've made a good decision. We all get tired and a little jaded on the blog front now and then.

We know you won't be going far, but there's no shame in just blogging every couple of days, or whenever you feel like you have something to say!

Marie said...

Will miss you! But we'll definitely be here when you get back from your break.

kirby said...

*grabs you by the ankles*
NOOOOoooOOOOOO

but it's okay. I understand.
I'll just have to stalk you on facebook instead.
MWAHAHAHA.

michelle and the city said...

i definitely can relate. hope all is well and i'll be awaiting your return! :)

Becs said...

I am new to your blog and am so excited to keep reading! I have a blog too and there is no way I could write something every single day so I am totally amazed that you could do it for so long. You deserve a break and I will be here when you get back!

Julie said...

I shall be here waiting with baited breath for you to return :)

Hopefully with pictures of something fun that you did!! And more info about your US trip!

Noelle said...

That sounds good. Blogging isn't a contest, and quality over quantity is better any day of the week.

ashley said...

Quality over quantity, babe!

You're amazing and do what you need to. :) You rock.

Have fun hanging out with Jase. :)

Katie said...

You deserve it dear :) Enjoy your time off!

ashley said...

Well we will miss you dear. Can't wait to hear from you again! But I understand. We all need a break.

grungedandy said...

Hey when it starts feeling like a chore you need a break I’ve always been a sporadic blogger life always gets in the way (as dose sleep!)I always try and do at least once a week but sometimes it doesn’t work, most people have blog feeders nowadays so will know the min you post again! Take care babe until next time have fun Seeya hugya *G*

Britt said...

Enjoy your break. It will give you time to refresh your mind a bit.

Kelley said...

I honestly don't know how you have done it babe. I have been blogging since August and I am down to 3 maybe 4 a week. I just can't do it everyday.

Especially with my self imposed visit and comment on every commenter blog policy, blogging was becoming a chore.

Take a break and you will find you will be excited to blog again. I just know it.

agirlinterrupted said...

I totally understand. Well when you come back I have moved. I used to be 1218blog but now I am with wordpress.

natalie said...

Have a great break- you'll just have all the more time and energy to go out and do really exciting things that we'll be dying to hear about whenever you're ready! Don't forget to remind me when you'll be in New Orleans. We should definitely meet up!!! It would be my first meet-a-blogger experience! wheeeeeeeeeee!

LaLa said...

Yay! Join me as a lazy blogger... when you do post it will make it all that more special.

Love you xx

ashley said...

Oh yeah! And I forgot to tell you - come back even if it's just to say hi and give us an update. It doesn't have to be only moving, thoughtful posts.

Deal?

Tasmiya said...

Have a wonderful break from blogging :)

nancypearlwannabe said...

Britt said...
