Taking a break

I have been blogging for about 2 years now, and although I don’t have a large following (currently sitting at 153 – thank you to each and every one of you!) I have really enjoyed it.

Over time my blog has changed; it started with posting photos for a weekly challenge and now is about my travel destinations and the history behind the places I visit. I have never seen myself as someone who can write very well and I am constantly doubting my writing skills. Additionally, I am not sure what I write is really of interest to a lot of people, and so the time feels right to take a break from this and re-evaluate where I want to go with this blog (or even, if I want to continue with the blog at all). I am considering changing it to photos only rather than long posts about historical events or facts that, quite frankly, are to be found everywhere on the internet these days. I might change it entirely and write about something completely different if I feel I still want to write. I just don’t know to be honest, but feel that a break is what is called for right now.

So I thank everyone of you for following my blog, commenting on and liking my posts and for sharing them with your friends.

    Well, speaking as one who has only been following your journal for 12 months, I’d like to say how entertaining and informative your blog is! Any chance I can convince you to keep going!?

    • Thank you Steve for your kind words and support, it means a lot. However, I still think I need to rethink my direction on this blog and try to find a niche for myself in this wide world of blogging. Stay tuned…


  2. Wishing you the best for which ever way you choose to go. I think part of blogging is changing and re-evaluating from time to time, I know my blog has changed over the years. Heck it’s changed this year, lol. I’ve enjoyed your photo’s and reading of your journeys I hope you continue with the blog.


  3. You’s is a much betterer writter than I is Simone, but the fact you are taking a break just proves you are a good person too, cause they say that there is “No rest for the wicked” that’s why I am forced to carry on and I do Carry On just like the movies. Have a wonderful time!


  4. I’ve enjoyed your blog as well Simone, although I have to admit to not keeping up with any of the blogs I have been following since I’ve taken up PSE&M. I haven’t even been keeping up my own blog.

    I agree that there is an incredible amount of content and the internet and it is hard to be unique and standout in the crowd. I think there are three ways you can approach the blogging world:
    – Shoot for creating content that will be of very broad appeal (hard to do)
    – Take the local approach: Appeal to the small group of folks who follow you and hope to get a few more. It is kind of like being the local bookstore and not aspiring to be Barnes and Noble.
    – Do a blog for your own purpose and not so much for the readers. This was my approach – do it as a way to take more pictures and record my memories (of course I’ve been failing spectacularly at this)

    I do hope you continue blogging. I have found your posts interesting and informative, as I wouldn’t typically seek out the information you share.
