- — K Girl (@Be_a_K_Girl)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:11:04A 1: We recently took a hiatus for about a month. #Business junk distracted us from our mission. #createlounge https://twitter.com/kayla_hollatz/status/639228444690227200 …
- Some said they were currently in one.
- — colin ashby (@colinashby)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:09:24A1: Taking one right now! Did an awesome last post on first job lessons, been swamped with work and haven't had time to write #createlounge
- — Emma Dahl (@socialemma)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:20:59A1 currently in one! started as a planned break, now it's been months. Conference planning & wedding planning keeps you busy #createlounge
- So why might we want to take a hiatus?
- So many responses were so true.
- — Joelle Duff (@JoelleCharming)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:18:33A2 - I think it's better to take a step back if you just aren't finding yourself inspired. Quality, not quantity! #createlounge
- — Marissa Burdett (@MarissaBurdett)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:18:54A2: My brand wasn't working + I wasn't generating the content I felt most passionate about + would be most valuable for others #createlounge
- — Lindsay Valenty (@crayongirl_linz)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:22:28A2: I also have stopped when I noticed my "voice" changing - I like my tone to be consistent, not spotty and jarring. #createlounge
- Now we're getting to the good part.
- Many said yes!
- — Callie Gisler (@calliegisler)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:25:44A3: I always try my best to announce hiatuses. It's sorta like telling your clients you're going away on vacation, etc. #createlounge
- — Devan Danielle (@Devan_Danielle)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:25:52A3 // Every blogger I follow has announced it if they are taking a blog hiatus. I would defintily do the same for my people. #createlounge
- — As Told By (@astoldby_)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:25:59depends on the situation. If it's planned and you know for how long than yes as that's fair to readers #CreateLounge https://twitter.com/kayla_hollatz/status/639232344570863616 …
- — Bubbleista (Davon H) (@TheBubbleista)Thu, Sep 03 2015 00:27:51A3 I'll announce it. I never want my readers to feel taken for granted--I owe them a "heads-up." #createlounge https://twitter.com/kayla_hollatz/status/639232344570863616 …
