Bookishrealm Discussion: Blog/Youtube Hiatus: I'm Back !

Okay so if you haven't noticed which I'm sure you have I've pretty much have been absent this whole month. Did I intentionally do this at first? NOPE! Haha. But after a while of not blogging and not posting YouTube videos my hiatus then become intentional. I've never been the type to take a break from my world of books like this; however, I've had a lot happen in the past few weeks (all good things) and I actually needed some time away to process and get my life more organized than it has been in a couple of months. So while I won't go into the specifics of why I took this break, I will discuss some of the benefits that come with taking a brief hiatus from working on a blog or Youtube channel. With that being said I would encourage anyone and everyone to take a break when it's needed. I know a lot of times we expect a lot of each other; however, we're all still human and sometimes we just need some time away.

Here are some benefits I gained from taking a break:

  • I was able to get my personal life in order. I'm a full time graduate student this semester and I needed time to adjust to doing that while working full time. 
  • Planning became my best friend. I know that every blogger had their own way of planning out what posts were going to occur for the week or even month in advance; however, I become even more organized than usual. I got a planner and notebook to pinpoint what needed to be completed for school, my personal life, and my blogging life every couple of days.
  • I caught up on TV shows/movies. This may not seem like a big deal; however, I hadn't been watching a lot of TV because I became too absorbed with reading, blogging, and making videos. Hey, everybody needs some sense of balance. 
  • Sleep. Yes, yes, yes! I actually got some rest and was able to relax.
  • Blogging/Video Future: With this time off I was also able to pinpoint what I wanted to do in terms of the future of this blog and the future of my YouTube channel and surprisingly I feel like I have some good things coming in the near future. 
So what I would like to know from you all is if you've ever had to take a break and if you had how long was your break? Did you see any benefits of taking a break? Let me know in the comments below. And I'm definitely happy to be back! : )
