One thing that really bugs me is when people slate other people for using their phone when their on holiday.
Hellooooooooooooo, I work a full time job when I’m at home. I am out of the house for 12 hours a day and spend the evenings with my boyfriend so having 15 minutes where I can dick about my phone is definitely something I see as a treat. I feel like most of the time I’m sneaking time to check social media, emails and messages between adverts and toilet breaks. It’s something I can’t do all the time because of lack of time. So if I’m sat by a swimming pool for 8 hours a day, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be doing whatever I like. I’ve come on holiday do spend my time doing things I feel like doing. It’s that simple.
I guess the can be said for blogging. I am currently sat on my balcony in Zante writing this. It’s 17:30 and I’m showered, dressed and ready to meet my family at 18:30 to go for a meal. I’ve got an hour to kill, so I’m having a chill out with a glass of wine and typing this post.
And I love it. This is what blogging is for me. It’s not that rushed feeling you get when you need to get a post scheduled but you’re too busy to do it, or what feeling of writers block and guilt for not being inspired.
It’s this. Being sat on a balcony on a Greek island and blogging just because I can and I want to.
I did the same in Cyprus, the same in Florida – although I was much busier in Florida so didn’t get as much time online.
It’s nice because it reminds me why I love blogging. When I’m on holiday and I actually want to sit down and take an hour of the day to update you all on my life, it’s just a really nice feeling.
I know a lot of bloggers take social media and blog breaks over holidays, which is fine. I have 3 weeks of posts scheduled so I’m under no pressure whatsoever to write more blog posts. I’m doing it because I want to.
I think that’s the way to do it. To take your laptop and blog if you feel like it.
I’ve done a post each day so far and I’d love to be able to continue on like this so when I get back to the UK, then I’ll have lots of posts scheduled so I don’t have to worry about blogging when I’m back to being busy again.
What do you do on holiday, blog or not blog? That is zee question.
