The road ends, but the journey continues...

Taking a Blogging Break & The Number 9

It’s been 9 years of blogging & I’m taking a blogging break.
See ya on the other side!

Not everyone’s cup of tea, but it just seems to fit.

    You stop when I come (from Frank) <3

    • laura bruno lilly

      Hello Michel from Frank’s blog! Thanks for stopping by, even if I’ve ‘stopped’ for a bit.

  2. Luanne

    I hope you’re enjoying your break. I have been blogging for almost ten years. It seems that there are a lot of us who began about that same time. It’s a lot to keep up, but it’s hard to walk away from such a friendly community! Hope you find good rest and rejuvenation “out there.”

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thank-you, Luanne, yes I’m enjoying the break – perhaps you’re due for one yourself? πŸ™‚
      You’re spot on about the realities of keeping a blog long(er)term. A nuisance to keep up but hard to close up shop! Enjoy the coming cooler days of Fall.

  3. Jennie

    Enjoy the break!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks – and you take it easy, teacher.

      • Jennie

        Will do! ?

  4. Marie A Bailey

    Good for you! Enjoy your time off and see you when you get back πŸ™‚

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Marie!

  5. Marty

    Have a wonderful break!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Will do, Marty!

  6. Cheryl, Gulf Coast Poet

    Enjoy a well-earned break, Laura! <3

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Cheryl! Enjoy the rest of your summer…seems to be cooling a bit, whew!

  7. Andy

    See you when Summer’s out ?

    • laura bruno lilly

      It’s a date!

  8. Khaya Ronkainen

    9 years of blogging!!! I’d say it’s a well-deserved break. Wishing you a restful and wonderful time away from the computer / phone screens. πŸ™‚ <3

    • laura bruno lilly

      Now if I can only figure out how to access a rooftop sauna…

  9. Laura

    Have a wonderful musical break, Laura! Play a lot! Laugh a lot! πŸ™‚

    • laura bruno lilly

      You got it, Laura!

    Having reached yet again the WP picture “end” – I’m just doing words for now. Pictures of whatever I’m doing on IG – sometimes WIP, sometimes finished … Plus I’ve been out of kilter with health of the covid kind, still working on returning to upright health….

    • laura bruno lilly

      Stay the course – we want you healthy!

  11. deborahbrasket

    Enjoy! We all need a break occasionally. See you later!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks. That you shall!

    I think we all need to do that from time to time. I took two weeks off when I went on my brothers’ trip (actually I limited myself to 15 minutes per day), and I didn’t miss it. Blogging is supposed to be fun. As I’ve told my wife, if ever gets to feel like work, I’ll move on. I’m traveling right now and giving myself the next four days off.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Happy travels, Pete!

  13. Janis @

    Been there, done that! Enjoy your time away.

  14. zippyquilts

    Enjoy your blogging break–hope you get lots done and have fun, too!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Zippy!

  15. Savoring Sixty and Beyond

    I took a break from blogging, and it was nice to just read what everyone else wrote. Just started back about a month ago and it feels good. Hope you enjoy your break and come back when you are ready!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Yep, you got it! I especially like your ‘come back when you’re ready’ part.

  16. Enjoy your break πŸ™‚

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Tierney!

  17. piecefulwendy

    Enjoy the break! I’ll look forward to your posts in the future!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Wishing I could borrow Wilbs – HA!!!! Stay well, Wendy and I’ll see you in your posts.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, LA! Welcome back from your travels!

  19. marissthequilter

    Will miss your posts but, after nine years, you deserve a break. You certainly have yourself an interesting send-off.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Looking forward to your own return to blogging! BTW: been listening more to Kaki King & Guy Buttery along with Kula Shaker. But this white album piece is an appropriate send off which amplifies my need to take a break HA!!!!

      • marissthequilter

        Am slowly settling back into my old routines and hope to write a post tomorrow, despite feeling rusty.
        Glad you are enjoying Guy Buttery et al.

        • laura bruno lilly

          Yay! I await your new post with great anticipation.

    Enjoy the break, Laura! I’m taking one too. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • laura bruno lilly

      And like you, I’ll be reading what others have to say at my leisure! Enjoy your break, too, Roseanne.

  21. L. Marie

    Happy Blogoversary, Laura! Enjoy the rest of the summer!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, L.Marie!
