So it has come to this.
For the first time since January 2012, I am taking a break from blogging, and there’ll be nothing posted whilst I’m away.
It’ll be good for all of us, I think.
Just like one sometimes needs to take a break from a relationship, sometimes taking a break from telling the whole world 80% of the stuff going on in your life is a thing that is necessary.
It also means I can go away and not worry that a scheduled blog won’t go up, or a guest blogger won’t be able to log in and post.
And I promise that it’s not that I’ve fallen out of love with blogging, because I haven’t. It’s nice to have a bit of consistency in my daily life, to be honest. I’m using Machfest this year to get away from the Internet as much as I possibly can. And this isn’t an avoidance tactic when it comes to the outcome of the Graduate Scheme. Ahem. Machynlleth is a beautiful place, and all too often I spend my time off staring at my phone, lazily scrolling through Twitter when I should be making the most of the gorgeous surroundings and actually talking to people that I only see once a year.
This will be my last post until Tuesday the 5th of May, when I’ll do some sort of round up of what I’ve been up to the previous week. I might even keep a physical diary whilst I’m away, because nature and camping are all about getting back to basics, and you can’t get more basic than a pen and paper. Maybe chalk and slate, I dunno.
You won’t miss me.
