Snack Girl News Regarding Fridays

Friday-Change

Do you see that guy up there? That isn’t me, but I can relate.

I am making a change here on Snack Girl because I am beginning to feel very tired. I am going to stop putting a new blog post up on Friday.

Most of you are saying, “You post every Friday? I had no idea!” and about four of you (my diehard fans) are going “What am I going to read on Friday?”.

When I started Snack Girl in 2009, I had intending to post three times per week. Then a pal of mine pointed out that if I wanted it to grow, I needed to write more so I went to fives times per week.

Here we are in 2012 and I am a bit exhausted.....zzzzzzzzzz.....

Also, I have taken on another project which is consuming me. Combine my new project, the website, my children (aaah!) and various other responsibilities and you have a recipe for hitting the Dunkin Donuts multiple times a day.

I hope to bring back Fridays when I get it together. You will continue to receive my thrilling posts Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You get THREE days off to study them (there will be a quiz!).

This is about balance and, sadly, I have found out there are limits to my Snack Girl powers.

Thanks for understanding!!

PS Don’t forget to share Snack Girl with all your friends :)

Might Snack Girl be modeling good self-care???
I will just read old posts on Friday like I do on Saturday and Sunday....

Jennie McKenna on November 2, 2012

Rachel on November 2, 2012

I do look forward to your posts! What is your project that is taking you away from us? :-D

Michellea on November 2, 2012

I'll miss you but you being charged up is much more important! :)

De on November 2, 2012

Good for you for taking care of yourself & setting a good example! You have so much info on your website that we could spend Fridays (& many other days) finding lots of good info we may have missed previously! Get some rest & do something good for yourself!

Julie on November 2, 2012

You do a lot! Rest up, and stay away from DD- well, the coffee is good!

Andrea on November 2, 2012

taking care of our self is number 1 priority if we are to take care of our family and others and be productive members of work and society, oh yeah and stop giving money to dunks above and beyond the daily dose

kim on November 2, 2012

I get ya! I'm tired to!! I think it's a great idea to take Friday's off!I think I should do that on Wednesdays! Enjoy your day, we'll miss you, but we know we shall see you on Monday!!

Jennifer Drummond on November 2, 2012

I say good for you for recognizing that you need more balance in your life. We should all follow your lead.

Gina on November 2, 2012

My boss takes one day each weekday to work on marketing, writing and sometimes, just goofing off - I think you have made a great decision and will find that you are happier and more productive than you have ever been!

Lisa on November 2, 2012

Just a note to say....I really appreciate reading your info, 4 days a week is still great and I hope this lightens your schedule a bit. Have a great weekend!

karen on November 2, 2012

I will miss you on Fridays, but I totally understand:)

Amy on November 2, 2012

Nothing wrong with that! Great decision - balance should always be a priority. Also enjoy those babies because the time goes very fast :) TGIF!

Nancy Foerstel on November 2, 2012

Good for you! If you realize when you need to slow down, no one else will or it will be too late. Still a fan!

Tina Smith on November 2, 2012

Good call - balance is everything. I wasn't sure how you were churning out consistently great stuff day after day as it is! We'll tune in any time you have something to say - it's well worth it.

Julianna on November 2, 2012

Of course we understand! You need to take care of yourself first. We appreciate all that you do, and on Fridays we will look forward to Monday's post! Enjoy your weekend. :)

Denise on November 2, 2012

Good for you. You have to take care of yourself first. I have no idea how people can blog every day.
