Offline a Bit? #atozchallenge

Offline a Bit?

Not to be confused with off-sides or being off-kilter!

Have you been offline a day or two during the Challenge?

Don’t let the sheer amount of blog posts during that time scare you.

Just focus on those who visited you the day you were absent. Return those comments and just delete all the other posts from your blog reader. People will understand.

Use Sundays to catch up. Or, if you’re caught up, use Sundays as your day to be completely offline. Spend some time with your family, go see a movie, go read a book. Regroup and recharge.

We’re over halfway – don’t get burnout now!

Hi Alex - it happens to us all - not doing the Challenge this year is sad, but a relief - and I'm enjoying visits to everyone's blogs - and I'm sure I'll find some new ones when I get a chance to visit the list or see some comments that resonate at others' blog posts ...

Over half way through is amazing ... congratulations one and all - cheers Hilary

I have been over-whelmed this year. A two-year-old takes up all of my time, but I have found so many great blogs I hate not to read them. And then the beautiful weather is beckoning me outside for yard clean-up. I'm thinking my online days of having a website and then a blog (20+ years) may be coming to an end.

Must admit I wrote a load of posts in the first few dayd and sceduled them. Also have to admit to going back and totally wewriting some of them, as people interacting and leaving comments took me off in other direction. Thansk for this Blessings Joy

It is sometimes good to take that breather and then just plunge back in and finish well :)

I have to confess I'm enjoying all of this. The sheer variety alone is fascinating.

I have finally done my last post so things are going well in my little corner. Have been enjoying reading lots of other posts, coincidentally, Scarlett's blog from Ecuador where they have just had a massive quake.

There's always one day when I don't make it here. I like these tips.

It's so hard to catch up when you've been offline! May have to skip a few comment replies, but I really hate to do that.

Pat Garcia said...

That's exactly what I've been doing, catching up with comments on our free day. No doubt about it, the challenge is fun, but there is lots of stress and sometimes I just have to back away if only for four or five hours.

Visiting from the A to Z Blog Challenge.

Shalom,

Sundays sure do make a difference. It is good to take a day off. Here we go again...

Days I miss out, the next day I usually at least try to read the short and quick posts.

This was what I needed to hear. Burn Out is what I experienced yesterday on the O day which I decided was not going to be my Opt Out day. I also realised that I've written most of my posts already so I needn't Panic because I'm Prepared :)

Sheila Good said...

So far so good. Thanks for the encouragement though. @sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles

Jean M Cogdell said...

I felt as if you'd written this just for me. I was about to throw in the towel. Not because of burn out but because I'd spent the last 3 days in the hospital with my husband. He is recovering from open heart surgery and had a set-back. Threw me for a loop, but all better now and I'm back. Thanks for the encouraging words.

Kimberley Cooperblog said...

I was getting a bit overwhelmed too, and I'd scheduled over half my posts in advance. And I was feeling guilty that I hadn't looked at too many new blogs on the list recently. Your words stopped me fretting. And the list of blogs will still be there after 30 April, so I can explore them then, right?
