Arieanna has posted about the options that bloggers have in what to do with their blogs when they go on holidays. She outlines four options:
1. Guest bloggers
2. Advance post
3. Write from the road
4. Announce you are going away
I think all are valid. As she mentions last time I took an extended break (a month this last June) I went for the guest blogger option – something that was a lot of work for me to set up (I had over 50 guests across my 20 blogs) but was well worth while as it kept the ball rolling wonderfully.
For shorter breaks I tend to take option 2 on some of my blogs and set some advance posts to go off once a day while away – or number 4 (announce and just leave for a few days). I guess it depends upon the length that you’re going away for and the normal rhythm of your blog.
