OK, I did it all wrong. I took a break, but I did not let anyone know I was taking a break. I didn't really plan on stepping away from my blog, but in December I went into a creative overdrive that consumed my free time. I made tons of snowflakes and did a lot of creative writing. Everyone got a snowflake for Christmas this year :)
I found a nice discussion about a better way to take blogging breaks here at Productive Writers. I thought the article had some good suggestions. The people who commented on it also had some interesting thoughts.
I have a lot of catching up to do - people to feature, stories and photos to share... and I am looking forward to catching up on all of your posts!
I hope you all had a great holiday and new year!
