‘V’ and I returned last night from our mini-break – three days of touring wineries, eating at some amazing restaurants, sitting in front of cosy fires, reading intriguing books and enjoying some sunshine and beautiful countryside.
There was no blogging, no email, no spam comments, no trolls, no earnings updates, no SEO, no interviews and no instant messaging.
Of course as usual we went away just when things heated up here at ProBlogger (it seems to be the way that every time I can’t blog that some sort of controversy or massive influx of visitors happens). My announcement of reaching six figures from blogging from Adsense in 12 months caused as stir as you’d expect. The response was overwhelmingly positive and any problems were handled wonderfully by regular readers in comments. Thanks for that.
Taking a break from your entrepreneurial blogging activities is a definite must. I’m feeling now feeling refreshed and am ready for a massive month of blogging.
Over the next few weeks I’m winding down an offline project that I’ve been working on for the past six months which will mean I have an extra couple of days per week to dedicate to blogging related activities.
As a result I’ve been working with a number of other bloggers on a variety of new projects recently and am looking forward to making some announcements in the coming weeks. Some of these are large scale collaborations and others are smaller – but large or small I’m hoping that the results will be a stable and growing blogging enterprise. Stay tuned….
