Sending my Worth Casing Wednesday linkup off with a bang for 2016…
Well I must confess, I didn’t see this one coming. After more than four years of hosting a linkup on Wednesday (with just the one or two small breaks, including a big chunk of last month), I’m completely pulling the plug.
Linkys are a whole lot of fun and a great way to connect with other bloggers but done correctly they are also a whole lot of work and take up a huge chunk of my time each week.
My social media time isn’t exactly my own right now and as much as I would like to be involved with everything that lands in my inbox and continue the linkup, it just isn’t possible. Rather than continue to feel like I’m only just coming to the party here, there and everywhere… I’ve decided to pick and choose my blogging and online battles for the remainder of the year and that means Worth Casing Wednesday needs to go.
So this sadly, is my last Worth Casing Wednesday post.
I’ll be having a bit of a blogging break over Christmas and re-evaluating how I spend my online time, with the new business (a blog and PR agency) and my charity work taking up more and more of my time. Don’t get me wrong, the personal blog will definitely be making a comeback, just my approach to it and blogging in general will look a lot different.
Next year, the gap from pulling the Wednesday linkup will provide the time and the perfect space for a new initiative I’m launching. Something that has me passionate and feeling positive about my online personal blogging endeavours, especially given all the recent negativity we’ve witnessed online of late. Some of which was a little too close to home for my liking. Leanne from Deep Fried Fruit, touched on some of the issues this week with a positive spin… lemon trees, trolls and rose gardens!
NOT ALL LINKUPS ARE GOING, GOING, GONE!
Our monthly Aussie Giveaway Linkup is still a perfect fit here as we focus on Reviews & Giveaways. Now with added co-hosts, AGL is the perfect place to linkup your blog or business giveaway for more exposure. It kicks off on the first of the month. Each and every month. So no Christmas break for this particular one.
More Wednesday Linkups…
If you are looking for somewhere new to link up your posts on Wednesday, I would head over and say hello to Trish from My Little Drummer Boys and Stephanie from Stephs Joy who returns to blogging and her Wednesday linkup today, after an extended break.
As we say goodbye to Worth Casing Wednesday, rather than just linking up this week’s blog post, why not select your favourite blog post from the year.
Have you given any thoughts or made any blogging plans for 2017? Are you taking any time off over Christmas and New Years?
