B is for Buh-Bye!


Yup, I'm outta here. But only temporarily.

See, there's this whole A to Z blogfest going on for the month of April, where the diligent bloggers are posting (almost) every day, each day being somehow connected to the corresponding letter of the alphabet. Yesterday was "A." Today is "B."

Now, there is just no way I can manage that rigorous schedule, especially this month. I have family coming to stay for a few weeks, there's Passover, followed by Easter (we're an eclectic family), followed by my mother-in-law's surgery, all wrapped up in a great big writing deadline for me.

So I've decided April is an excellent candidate for a blogging hiatus.

Oh, I'll still pop in from time to time. Probably to beseech you go read my Debutante Ball posts on Fridays, since I can't go on hiatus over there, it being a group blog and a long-term commitment and all. And I'll try to drop by your blogs as much as I'm able. Maybe toss out some tweets, just so y'all don't forget me. But every now and then, something's gotta give, yannoh?

But I wish you all much success with your April blogging, especially if you're taking the A to Z Challenge! I look forward to reading as many of your posts as I can. :)

Have a happy April. I'll be sure to ogle some camels in your absence.

I pre-scheduled all of my posts so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Enjoy your break.

enjoy your much needed break!

Blogging every day sounds like a form of torture the military should look into employing. Since I've been on a, um, unannounced hiatus for some time, I find I am actually missing it though.

See you soon!

Anne Gallagher said...

I'm supposed to be on hiatus as well, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity for this particular a-z.

Have a great time while you're away. Hope everything goes well.

Jen Stayrook said...

Does that mean the camels are taking a hiatus as well? I guess I'll have to pick up the slack. You better still be around on Twitter! <3

You're such a smarty.

Enjoy your break!

Tracy Jo said...

Have a great break, Linda! Hope you get tons done. Enjoy your family and Easter!

Michele Shaw said...

Enjoy the time off! I bet you'll find that it energizes your blogging brain and gives you tons of ideas! Or at least lets you loaf and drink Manhattans, but whatever, right? Prioities!

Enjoy your break.

Carol Kilgore said...

I can't do the A-Z either and will be taking a blog break toward the end of the month. I totally get it. Enjoy yours :)

Sarah Pearson said...

Have a good break, and I hope the MIL's surgery goes well.

Patsy said...

I've opted out of the A to Z as well. Sounds an interesting challenge but it's more than I feel I can handle right now.

Well as long as I still have you on Fridays...
Like we could ever forget you.
Enjoy your April though I'll miss the camels.

Smart, smart woman! We'll miss you, but look forward to seeing you later. Hope the surgery goes well & that you get a good breather. :-)
