I believe the most important part of blogging is engaging with your readers. I have made an effort in the past to respond to each of my comments (minus giveaway entries), but this is less realistic while I am working full time. I apologize in advance, but will connect with my readers through different outlets, I assure you this!
I will also have far less time to read my Bloglovin’ feed so have created a “Favorites” folder to skim through when I have time, along with a Food, Style, and Beauty category for when I am in need of inspiration. When I come across great posts, I pin or pocket them to refer to later. If your reader is chock-full of of posts waiting for your attention, start over. Declare blog reading bankruptcy and hit “clear all.” It’s a liberating feeling.
*Bonus: Let it go!
As difficult as it may be, time away from your blog coupled with a little rest & relaxation can give you the extra boost you need to pump out that next amazing post. Just remember, you never need to apologize for living your life outside of your blog!
