A Short Break to Write My Fitness Book

Taking a short blog break

Taking a short blog break

A Short Blogging Break for August and September

As much as I dearly love blogging, I need to take somewhat of a break. By “break” I mean that I will only participate in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, with my posts publishing on Fridays. It is a fun challenge for those who dabble in photography and often make for interesting blog posts.

The photo challenge has been responsible for almost of half of my followers, and according to WordPress analytics, Friday is my most popular day, with over 20% of page views and engagement.

Why am I taking a break?

I need to focus these next two months on writing and finalizing the first draft of my next book “No Excuses Fitness.”

And now that I am nursing a fractured right hand (fell while walking my dogs), I have fallen behind in the writing department!

I go back to teaching 9 units at the end of August (over 150 students…sigh). I will be on campus Monday afternoons, Wednesday all day and Friday mornings. I thought I retired!

I will still engage with your blogs as much as I can, but perhaps not every day. If I see a great post that needs a good re-blog, I will also do so!

Please drop by on Fridays!

  1. Delighted to hear that you are writing another book! Where you find time with your teaching and even with your Friday blogs (retired?!?!?). Sadly I fail to blog (and IG) as much as I’d like because of our crazed travel schedule. But it is always nice to catch up when we can.

  2. I’ve only ever seen great things come out of taking blogging breaks, so you’re doing the right thing, Terri. Good luck with getting the book done. I hope the hand heals up really quickly.
    Enjoy the rest of the summer. 🌞

  3. Good for you, Terri. We’ll be here when you return full-time. I’ll be taking a short break soon as well. My mum is ill and I’ll be traveling cross country for a visit. See you on the other side 🙂 ♥

  4. Great idea Terri. I too am just finished first draft and feel like escaping for a few months, but I’m sure I won’t. Enjoy your productive time! 🙂

  5. Good for you, Terri. It’s all about priorities and I should take a break from blogging as well and follow your example. But, I have already reduced this to one a week on Wednesdays. It is the engaging in other blogs that takes up the grunt of my blogging time, I find.

    Sorry about your hand. I hyperextended my middle finger on a hike last year and other than the pain, it kept me from writing and other things… I hope you will be successful with your book the next two months.

    • Thanks, Liesbet, and you are right about the rest of the blogging engagement. I love to read and engage but need to cut it back a bit. I will always read and comment on yours!


  6. I’m excited about your book, Terri. I hope you have a section for people who hate to exercise. You will, right? Anyway, best of luck to you as you focus on it. I hope your injury heals quickly and I’ll look forward to your photo posts.

  7. Best wishes on your book. Sorry to learn about your hand. I get the most views on my pictures and Coffee Share is another one I get views. I reason I am continuing it as I have seen to loss my link to it.
