Taking a break from blogging

This blog marks 26 weeks of blogging.

It’s not a target I set for myself or something I did intentionally, but I started this year by deciding to take my blog a little bit more seriously. I began putting more time in posts and planning out every month, deciding on a blog I would put up every week.

It’s been quite challenging but it’s also been rewarding. To have a blog written and ready to upload every week, first you need something to write about. I would say I’m a pretty aware person, but with my need to have something to write about every week, I’ve become even more aware of the things around me.

I also treasure that I can look back over these posts, week by week and see what thoughts were wandering around my head at that particular time.

But the whole point of this post is to let you know I’m taking a break.

When this post goes up it’ll be the middle of June and I know from experience that future Catherine (present me is actually writing this blog in May), will be swamped with work. And I’ll be needing my days off to fully relax and enjoy my summer and not be sitting at a computer trying to prepare a blog in a hurry.

You reading this probably won’t notice that I’m taking a little breather from blogging for a few weeks, but I just thought I’d write this anyway (and future me can also look back over this at some stage and be like “hey 27 weeks was good going!”)

During the weeks that I don’t have blogs going up I will keep writing, some of which may end up as posts on here! I also plan on revamping my blog a little bit and looking at different layouts. The current design on my blog is something I chose two years ago, and I don’t think it reflects me anymore.

I am also seriously thinking of changing my blog name. Like my design, the name Rearranging Stars just doesn’t sit right with me and I don’t feel any joy in telling people what my blog is called (sometimes I even feel embarrassed haha).

How is your summer going? If you blog do you find it hard to juggle blogging with other responsibilities?
