Choosing to take ten days off from posting on social media was an impulsive decision, but one that needed to be made. The truth is that I consistently feel like I’m behind on content. The list of ideas that I want to produce is ever-growing, but the challenge is zeroing in and producing it. A great example of this is the recap I’ve been wanting to write about our Miami trip. I went on that trip with friends in February (four months ago!!). Thanks to this hiatus, I got the post written out and it’s scheduled to hit the blog next week.
Feeling consistently behind on content is a burden I’ve felt for a while. As a digital creator, the list of content to produce is always burning in the back of my mind. It keeps me motivated, but can lead me to feeling easily overwhelmed. That’s where this hiatus idea came from. The purpose was to focus my time on CREATING content that I’ve been meaning to get to as well as bulk up a content library to share.
This break from feeling the need to post daily helped immensely. It removed the pressure and allowed me to focus without distraction.
Some might ask – “well why ten days, Kahla”. The ten days didn’t hold any true significance outside of an impulsive decision to *just do it* and realizing I was ten days out from June 1st. I figured new month, new slate yada yada yada. It kind of just lined up that way for me. Now here we are ten days later.
While the breather from posting was nice (don’t worry I still stalked), I’m excited to get back to sharing my life across channels again. I’m feeling rejuvenated and focused. These ten days served as a tiny retreat for my creative flow. Taking a step back helped me reconnect with why I started things around here in the first place – to share every day life with a side of extra.
It feels good to be back.
Missed you, mean it.
