Sometime around 2005 I took a break from blogging. It was because I wasn't all happy with my blog, but also because of some very technical reasons.
I had been really blogging for a couple of years and before that had a very simple online journals since I don't know when. The idea of blogging had been quite a natural thing for me.
This break was supposed to be for just a little while. Weeks, maybe months. The next time I actually blogged was during the spring of 2010.
Taking a break feels sometimes necessary. Break from work, break from a hobby, break from the daily or weekly exercise. It gives time to breathe and time to rethink things.
Taking a break can sometimes be sort of bad too. The breaks may stretch from days to weeks, from weeks to months and years or indefinite times.
