The Suspension

No, I haven’t been expelled from an educational institution, nor am I dangling from a ceiling Mission Impossible style. (That was the first thing that came to mind when I thought about the word suspension. ;)
Anyway, I am simply announcing a temporary suspension of this blog. :(
You may have noticed over the past few months that I’ve been struggling to keep up my usually posting schedule and frequently apologizing about that. Well, I have a feeling I’m going to continue that trend for a while, so in order to spare you the monotony of my need to beg forgiveness I decided to just take a break for a while. ;)
Just to explain how bad things have gotten, I actually wrote this post two weeks ago.
I can hear all the professional bloggers who have tried to suggest ways to create a successful blog yelling, “You’re going to lose all of the readers you’ve worked so hard to build up if you stop now!” But the fact of the matter is the way you get readers is reading other people’s post and that is something I haven’t been able to do for weeks. A fact, I assure you, I’ve felt quite guilty about. You all deserve readers! :)
I’m not sure how long of a break I’ll take. There are just lots of things going on in the real world right now that I need to pay more attention to. Plus, I'm really tired of answering my e-mails with the words “I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you.” :P
So, now that I’ve rambled long enough, I’ll simply say, have a lovely rest of your summer!
Miss and love you all!
~Emily

I really enjoy reading your posts and miss them, but it's completely understandable!
Hope you are having a good busy time instead of a bad busy time!
And will have a wonderful rest of the summer as well! :)

We will miss you! Reprioritizing for real life things is not something to be guilty about--best of luck to you!

I'll miss reading your blogposts, but I definately agree that you need a break...and I guarantee I'll be here waiting for you when you return! ;-)

When there are too many commitments it's hard to do any of them properly, and they all suffer a bit. So something usually has to be dropped...sadly we just can't do everything at once. :)

I will definitely miss you, and look forward to your return.
However, that said, I hope that God blesses you in the real world with strength, patience, joy, and all that you need.
Have a blessed summer!

I understand. Hopefully we can keep up on Facebook or Twitter. If you get back into posting, let me know, I'll definitely come back!

Hi Emily -

I came here today with the intention of leaving a comment: Where are you? I hope you're okay.
Glad to hear it's only the time crunch we all experience.

Enjoy your blogging break. :)

Blessings,
Susan

Hi Emily -

Thought I'd check back to see if you resumed posting. I hope you'll return to the blogosphere one of these days even if you only post once a week or once a month. :)

Miss you.

Blessings,
Susan
