For the last five years, I have been traveling a lot. I would travel to America and then back home once or twice a year. When I started my blog, before traveling, I would schedule my posts for a couple of days in advance because it would take me 24- 36 hours, traveling, from home to home. And due to the time difference, the jet lag would be quite severe.
But I never took a hiatus from blogging, just a short leave, telling my readers that I may not be able to respond to their comments or to read their posts for a few days. But such is the charm and pull of the Blogging world that I would return to it as soon as I could.
Even now, I have a small surgical procedure scheduled for Friday, but I am planning to do the same.
I think since I can pre-schedule my posts for up to a week in advance, it is easy for me to manage even when I am busy. Another convenience is that I blog from my phone so I can do it from anywhere, anytime.
So my answer to Fandango’s question is that I haven’t taken any hiatus from blogging as yet or plan to. And I have no idea what effect it would have on my stats or on the number of followers.
