I realized that although I had scheduled many posts during my family holiday break, it was impossible to stay away from the community, and to not reply to those who kindly took time to leave comments. I noticed though that I was spending more than desired time inside than outside, and I shouldn’t miss the tropic weather, considering that I would soon return to a much colder Europe.
After posting actively and daily from November onwards, it was the first time that I took a quick blogging break, starting on January 1. I missed it though, particularly the friends and the interactions with followers. But it was good to keep a bit of distance. I needed to check what was happening to me. Was I becoming addicted to it or truly enjoying it?
I’m not into exceeding or exaggerating (not including chocolates), if it is solely serving a purpose to fill in an existential emptiness of any sort. I rather deal with the ‘vacuum’s source’ when I become aware of it, instead of getting into a ‘black hole’. Have I found the answer? I will come back to this on another post.
This post is about Justine’s event from Eclectic Odds n Sods, The Tea Time event. And this event is the best way to come back to blogging and interacting after a few neutral days. Her online presence is affectionate, funny, witty, creative and heartwarming, and represents one of the most valuable findings about blogging and the community it created. This is also an ‘exaggeration’ I can live with, and can never have enough of.
Go there and join the Tea Time #3. I’m very frugal today by eating only ‘one’ cookie and drinking a red bush or rooibos tea, originally from the Cedarberg region near Cape Town in South Africa. It might be a good choice to help with the excess of holiday’s calories and it may cure the jet lag.
This tea is known for providing these benefits: caffeine free; powerful antioxidant; prevents some cancers; high mineral content (zinc, magnesium, manganese, calcium, iron); improves circulation; relieves stomach complaints; aids absorption of iron; relieves skin conditions; protects against Parkinson and Alzheimer and encourages restful sleep.
Cheers to Justine for organizing this wonderful event that brings us bloggers together.
