I never used to understand it when bloggers would say, “I just don’t read that many blogs.” I wanted to say, “HOW RUDE! You are a blogger, you know how important it is to have people read YOUR words but you won’t take the time to read the words of others?”
And now…here I am. Between my quest for mental and spiritual #whitespace and doing media month in my 7 Bible Study, I have cut back so much on all blog reading! Now days – sometimes weeks – go by and I haven’t even logged into my blog reader.
And now, I get it.
Because sometimes, you just really need a break. Now, I am so appreciative when bloggers take “blogging breaks” because it gives me a lot less to catch up on.
I only posted six posts in April. SIX! I haven’t blogged that infrequently since June of 2012 and I’m totally okay with it.
So, my word of advice to bloggers out there:
Bloggers: sometimes the best thing we can do for our readers is stop trying so hard, producing so much for them to ingest. Give them space. You’re not a content machine. You are a person. Don’t forget to live your life.
But now, some posts that I did read in the last ahem…month (ish)…that I felt were worth sharing:

I’m Celebrating Mother’s Day for the 1st Time…
I started telling people, “If I ever adopt, I’ll choose a 20-year-old.”
have i told you about my love–hate relationship with facebook?
And when it comes to building your brand on Facebook, you should stop thinking like a brand, and focus on thinking like a person.
Easter Reflections 1: Not an Idol
If what we have is a real, living breathing relationship, then worship, I think, is going to look slightly different for each of us.
