Snack Girl News Regarding Fridays

November 2, 2012   57 Comments

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 :)

I hope you get some rest!

You deserve a break

Might Snack Girl be modeling good self-care???

I will just read old posts on Friday like I do on Saturday and Sunday....

Great job of modeling good behavior!!

poor divil! at least you recognise your limits before its too late.. yet another inspiring post from our favourite superhero!

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

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

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!

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

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

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!!

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

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!

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!

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

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

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!

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.

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. :)

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

As a fellow blogger, if you are reducing your days you may want to change them to Monday, Wednesday and Friday (I have also been blogging since 2009 on Cat Chat)

I find those 3 days to be the highest traffic days...Tuesdays and Thursdays are super light!

Good for you! This website is partly about taking care of ourselves, so you should do no different. I sometimes take a day or two (weekdays) off of blogging and don't even mention it. It is my blog after all and I make the rules. So should you! ;-) Cheers to your decision.

You guys are too sweet :) I am still working on Fridays - but just lightening the writing load. Big hug!!!

“Rest and be thankful.”

― William Wordsworth

You take the rest and we will be Thankful!:)

I agree. I work all my hours in 4 days so I can have Fridays off, so I know where you are coming from. Will still look forward to the days you do post and like another read said there is always old post we can read. ENJOY!

Go ahead and take the time... you are still doing fine!

What am I going to read on Friday?!?

=) Thanks for all that you DO write. I could never figure out how you kept coming up with new and interesting material. I'm glad you're seeking balance in your life!

Rest well! You will be missed! I always look forward to your posts, but would rather have a rested you and than a tired one. Take care and know your email friends understand.

Good for you Snack Girl! I always wondered how you had the time and creativity to post so much. Enjoy the day off :)

I am so glad you are taking some time. I hope you will really rest up. I was just thinking how you must be up all night after the children are in bed to get it all done, then going to seminars. Wow ! Both body and mind need rest.

take care, Lenora

Good for you. Everyone need to reassess their time and decide what works best for them. You do an excellent job of giving out information that is sorely needed. Thank you.

Do what you need to do to take care of yourself and your family. Your blog is great, but we all need to re-prioritize from time to time. Keep up the great work!

No issues for me. Balance is key and priorities is a must!

Finding balance is an ongoing struggle. Well done!

Good for you!... Everyone deserves some time off before its too late, and you burn out. worries still a fan ill read some more on monday.

You derserve a break today and every Friday!!!

Snack give us plenty of juicy tidbits M-Th to tide us through to Monday again. Thank you! Enjoy your Fridays.

I commend you for taking good care of yourself! I am a new reader and your info is really helping me to take better care of myself.All you do comes back to you multiplied! Thank you for a great blog.

You go girl . . . recharge and renew.

heck, I'm glad you aren't leaving TOTALLY! Have loved and benefited from many of your posts...and yes, balance is VERY important! Enjoy those Fridays! Really, really appreciating you!

Get some rest! God knows we ALL need more! I very much enjoy your posts and have shared your blog with all my friends! Have to say that more than several of your recipes have become standards in our house and I just love trying out your new recipes and suggestions each week:)

Good for you - when you work for yourself, you have no one else to blame if the boss is a slavedriver ;) I am good for about one blog post a quarter, so I salute you!

I am all for not spreading yourself too thin. Good for you for prioritizing!

I'm proud of you for having the ability to realize you need to take a break before you...well, break. I'm not going to lie I was in fact a bit sad as I read today's post but I adore you and applaud you. Its a bit ironic your subject on today's post because I'm stretched thin on time especially on Fridays. Normally reading your post each morning at 5 am is the way I start every day. But not today. It is 1:30 pm & I'm just now getting the chance to sit down. Take care of you & see you on Monday!!

It's OK! I'm rather new to your blog and am really enjoying it. I have a lot of old posts to catch up on anyway. Take care.

I love your posts. Even though I don't comment doesn't mean I don't love and enjoy all your thoughtful words. There may be lots of people like me out there. Please enjoy your new project and well deserved rest. Never, never stop writing.

Good for you! You rock it when you write and I'll be here four days or five. Take care of you and I'll try to do the same!

All smart snack-girls know that we HAVE to take time for ourselves! Enjoy your day off!

I was totally one of those that thought oh my goodness what will I read on Fridays! Lol but that is just because I love ur website and look forward to reading ur post! But I am proud of you for making a decision that i'm sure wasn't easy! Good for u! Honestly I need to follow in your footsteps! I will miss u on Fridays but like the others said above I will read old post just like I do on Saturday and Sundays! I have often wondered how u did it but just assumed it was the superpowers! :) Thanks for all your handwork! Rest is definitely well deserved!

Wise decision! Balance in time and work is as important as balance in diet.

I truly enjoy ALL your blogs. I learn from all of them. I will miss you on Fridays, but I will enjoy Monday - Thursday even more! Thanks for all you do!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Leave us on Thursday with us wanting more.

Great news, because you're modeling good health and self care for all of us. Thanks and hope you find one fewer blog posting day a welcome change.

Girl you take a break and enjoy breathing! YOU have to take care of yourself and if anyone is selfish and can't realize that then they are not a true fan!

Go back to three days. You are an established site now, and we could use the rest also. It's tough reading these every day, ya know?

Hi Lisa,

So what is your new project? Are you at liberty to share it with us (or me personally)? :)


How about some snack ideas that can give us some 4:00 energy for that low time of day.
