The Blogging Blues are real and no blogger is immune.
That was one of the themes in my past post On the Blogging Blues (April 27, 2015). Although the primary focus of that post was blogging breaks, readers offered many outstanding suggestion.
I gathered the comments, organized them into topics, then paraphrased the words. Here we are – Part 2 in the series – this time focusing on the Blogging Blues and blogging breaks.
Thanks for those providing the suggestions – after all, this post would not be here without your help.
Topic: Blogging Breaks and the Blogging Blues
Life gets in the way of blogging, but sometimes one must renegotiate life to put things like blogging on the back burner.

A blogging break seems to energize a person.
Blogging breaks are good … but bad for others because they fear not returning.
When returning from a break, somehow all the same faces are still there – and even new ones suddenly appear to say how they missed you.

When realizing that the blog was becoming a drudgery, a month-long break recharged my creative batteries – and I returned with renewed enthusiasm.
