Sunday Share: Taking a Break (Week 16)

Hi there, 
You may have noticed I am a bit late with my Sunday Share post, to be honest I wasn't sure if I was going to post one. I have decided to combine my Sunday Share: Currently post with my Weekly Newsletter, rather than taking over my Subscriber's today you get 2 for 1. 

Firstly, I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and taking the time to read my posts. I really appreciate it. It's nice to know people actually read my blog and enjoy it, so from the bottom of my heart - THANK YOU. 

This week I am going to be taking a mini-break from my blog, so that means there will be no new posts from me this week and possibly the following week. Instead, I will be spending this week with my family and my cousin's daughter, who has come to stay with us for a week. I will, however be active on Social Media, so be sure to follow me there to see what we get up to. 

There will be no Sunday Share or Weekly newsletter next weekend/week (23rd-25th April) and I plan to return on the 1st May with my monthly 'Taking Stock' post, and will have my next KonMari post scheduled to share that week, too. 

As a blogger, it is really important to take a step back from the screen every now and again, and reconnect with the real world. I for one, can spend hours and hours writing posts, editing photos etc and find myself disconnecting from the world around me. So I plan to play with my kids, catch up with friends, update my son's PlayCentre portfolio and write some letters (yes, snail mail/penpal type of letters). I need this. 

Since September 2014, my blog - Teacher by trade, Mother by nature - has been viewed over 100,000 times, and for me that is a huge milestone. I love blogging and take it very seriously, however I don't want it to take over my life, so I am stepping back, switching off and reconnecting with LIFE. 

I look forward to catching up with you soon.

Sunday Share is where I get to share extra tidbits of my Life, Home & Family with you, and let you know what I'm currently doing on and off the blog. It's also a great way to get to know me, Charlene, the blogger behind Teacher by trade, Mother by nature. If there is anything you would like to see or read more of on Sunday Share, let me know.
