Breaking up. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Breaking up.



Selfie at work because my life is work at all times. 

Wanna know how much blogging has been on my to do list lately? It hasn't. That's how much! I've been so so so so so super busy with Framed and life and obviously the holidays that blogging is like probably last on my mind right now. I'm so grateful for so much work to do with my business but holy beep I had no idea this season would literally explode into everyone wanting a sign. And I love when people order signs so I gotta put them first! They have to be my tawp priority.

SO I think I might just slow it down. Blogging 3 times a week was my goal and something I tried SO HARD to do, even if it meant stressing and putting it before more important things to get it done. But yeah, I think I need to break up with that schedule for now and just blog when possible because right now it just ain't working out. It's totally me, it's not you blogger. You guys, blogging takes up so much time! Then the commenting and maintaining relationships with like a million other people. I love it but that isn't time I have to spare right now. I want to do more outfit posts in the future (they're actually my favorite because well, I love clothes and stuff) and more lifestyle stuff (like what I already do so I guess that isn't a goal) And I want to vlog more!! But that all takes so much time!!

I'm not quitting blogging or even taking a long silence, just doing less posts for the next week or two!

But yeah, last week and this week and I'm sure the weeks to come, blogging has just been another chore to fill. I don't want blogging to be a chore!! I want it to be fun and something I love and all that crap so a break (aka slowing down) is really a must.

  4. I totally relate to this. Blogging always gets pushed to the back burner simply because it's the only thing that isn't on a deadline for me. You deserve a break girlfriend! Enjoy it and come back when you're ready!

  7. I totally feel you! I love my little blog but some weeks are just harder to find the time to sit down and write. I'd hate to end up frustrated and resenting my blog. You do what you gotta do! Your readers will always be there to read what you've written when you've got the time! xo

  10. That's really smart to listen to what you need. I felt I needed to do that in August-ish and it was the best thing I could have done. But that is so amazing that your business is doing so well, congratulations! And I would come work but I think NY to Arizona(right?) is a bitttt of a commute haha!

    1. Thank you!! I'm glad you did it and it was such a good thing!! I think I'll still blog, just not as much for this month or a few weeks to catch up on life! hahah just a little commute but not that bad ;) You are so nice!!

  11. I agree! Blogging takes up so much more time than people realize. It's a lot more than just writing down some words. Sometimes I go through months with just a few posts and sometimes I can post multiple times a week. It really just depends on life and what's going on. I try to keep it up until it starts to feel like work and is no longer fun, then I take a break and can come back to it with a fresh attitude. Definitely don't be a slave to the blog. Breaks are great! Enjoy the holidays!

    1. yes, totally!! It's planning, sitting down and doing, connecting with other people, going to events, emails, etc! I LOVE it but I just need to slow down for a few weeks and catch up on my business! Thank you sooo much for your input!! xo

  12. OMG Candace what are you talking about blogging is the most important thing EVER!!! lol no. Kidding. Take all the time you need!!!! I know personally I should have been doing a million more things today but I put writing a post before everything else and I'm going to pay for it. My life's falling apart but I always feel this little pressure that I have to keep up but really...I don't lol. No one cares about our blogs as much as we do lol. So take your time girl, but DO NOT stop altogether or I'll miss you. And keep snapping because I very much enjoyed your spaghetti squash tutorial ;) it actually really made me laugh because it reminded me of John "you're not gonna like it..." Hahahaha

    1. hahah omg you're so right ;) I will still blog, just not as much (even though 3 times a week isn't like a TON) I just need to catch up for a few weeks! Or maybe I'll get over it and not even break that much haha who knows! I care about your blog more than you do!!! haha but seriously, when you post I'm like YAY!!! You have to try spaghetti squash, it is SO GOOD and easy. Anytime I make something kinda weird healthy, Jason is like ............... but he had *2* bowls of it so I think he secretly does like it!!!

  13. First of all, you always get me with your dramatic titles. I definitely was scared when I saw this one! Next, your office building is beautiful. Next, I'm so glad your business is booming! Focus on that and rock it! We will be here :) And finally, I would love to work for Framed! But sadly, I live super far and in a different time zone. Oh, and in a different country.

    1. haha awh sorry!!! I like making titles that are like "wait... I'm interested to see what this is about!" Thank you! Oh my goodness, I love the office I work in, it's super open and spacious!

      Thank you!! I'm just going to slow down probably for a week or two to catch up on everything over here :) haha omg if you worked for Framed from Canada, that would make Framed GLOBAL!!!

  15. You most certainly need a break!!! Blogging should never be a chore for you. Your followers will be here regardless of how little or much you post. If I lived near you, I would come work for Framed!

  20. Framed does look great! And you need to make the time to blog for you, if it's not fun then don't blog to blog. It seems like Framed is really doing well and that's a passion. I can't wait to hear updates every once in a while though.

    1. Thank you!! I'll just be posting less for like a week or two while I catch up on orders and stuff :) Yeah, I never blog just to blog, that is never good so this little slow down period is needed while I recoup!

  21. Blogging gets hard sometimes... especially this time of year. I have a hard time staying caught up on everything too. And I'm job searching.. so working at Framed in my PJs sounds amazing!

    1. Yes, this time of year is so crazy!! Good luck with job searching!! If you lived in AZ it would be perfect with Framed!

  22. Girl, you take break. I've given you enough sign work to keep you busy & if you're getting orders from other people like you are me, you have a lot on your plate. A blogging break never hurt anybody. You do your thang & come back to us when things slow down. I'll keep in touch via email & Instagram. :)

    1. Awhhh you are honestly so sweet, thank you!! I emailed you some proofs and ideas this morning so your sign will be headed home soon!! :) I love hearing from you!!

  23. I totally took a break two weeks ago. I think we all need it. Especially because I don't want to get burned out from blogging. I love it so much, but when you feel like it's a chore, you'll begin to hate it. Take a break, girl. You deserve it!

    1. That is so good to hear!!! I'm glad it was helpful, that's my plan, too! Just slow down for a week or two while I catch up on everything around here. Thank you!!!

  24. Oh man I would love to work with you if I lived close! =) I can totally relate to this. I've been having a hard time the last couple of weeks keeping up with commenting and reading other blogs and all that, and I start my posts in the morning so I end up not getting them published until almost 11am. Maybe it's just the holidays.
