Chatty Saturday: Blogging Breaks & Consistency

I was just thinking about the fact that I haven't blogged in about three weeks and that I should feel guilty, but I don't. I simply am not a consistent blogger and I used to feel bad about that. I don't anymore.

This is my blog, and I blog first and foremost for myself. The fact that other people read, comment and follow my blog is a wonderful bonus of this little hobby of mine and one I really appreciate. But it is a hobby, and just like my other hobbies, I can go days and weeks without doing or even thinking about it. Usually when I stop, it is because there are other things happening in my life, and so I step back from the things I can; things I know won't fall apart if I step away for awhile. That or I just plain don't feel like it, and I get back to it when I do feel like it. Simples.

There are so many other fabulous blogs out there publishing lots of great posts, that I am sure nobody misses my posts when I am on one of my impromptu hiatuses. And if you do, then thank you, you lovely, lovely person.

Do you think that I am a terrible blogger who should be banned from the blogosphere? 
Do you take impromptu hiatuses? Only planned ones? Never taken a break?
What do you feel about blogging consistency? Do you care if bloggers post on a regular schedule or not?

This GIF has nothing to do with anything in this post. I just like it ;-)
