Hiatus *hides*

11:32 AM



I bet you guys are all wondering about the title. Basically, my mother was concerned about my interactions with people I don't know -- or something like that -- so she told me that I needed to stop blogging until I'm sixteen.

*crickets*

No, this isn't a joke . . . I'm completely serious. I'm not happy about it, but For All Who Wander will be inactive until November of 2018. *sobs*

Here's what's going to be happening:

I won't be "actually" posting on For All Who Wander until the month that I turn sixteen. I'LL BE A JUNIOR LIKE WAHT but it's okay. It really sucks that I won't be able to share anything with you guys -- I'm mainly bummed that I won't be able to share my writing, since I'm planning for 2017 to be a very productive writerly/novel drafting year -- but I hope to still be commenting on your posts and staying up to date that way. :)

I won't be counting these next twenty-two months towards my blogiversary. I really think that I should count my blogging anniversary as reaching one year of active posting, and as much as I'd love to keep doing that, I have to listen to my mother. So my almost-two-year hiatus won't count towards my 1-year blogiversary.

But . . . I might get permission to post the occasional update. Once every six months, perhaps? Or once a year. We'll see. If I'm able to end my ginormous hiatus early, I'll definitely start posting on here again.

I'm super sad that I have to leave For All Who Wander for such a long time. I know a lot of you guys just discovered my blog, and it really makes me sad that I can't keep posting. You can, however, follow me on Pinterest, where I just made a board for my own bullet journal. This is for the reason that I adore bullet journaling, and I still want to show you guys how it's going! So please, head on over. :)

One of the worst things for me is seeing a blog go inactive. It's super disappointing and feels like a letdown. But rest assured that I'm not giving up blogging, and I'm certainly not taking this long hiatus on my own accord. I love blogging, and although I hate that I have to stop for a while, I'm willing to wait it out. I really hope that during this time when For All Who Wander won't be updated, we can maybe (maybe???) keep growing the Wanderer crew, even if I'm not going to be posting.

I'm really sad that I can't post for a long time (as in, REALLY sad), but hey, let's think of my gigantic hiatus's end as something to look forward to!



BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

Since I won't be allowed to post on this blog, I wanted to update you on what I'm going to be doing this year. Camp NaNoWriMo will be happening, as well NaNo in November. I'll have a lot of stuff that's happening this year, and I'm just so sad that I won't be able to blog this year.

I'll also be starting my sophomore year in high school, which means that I'll actually have to stop procrastinating so much. My older sister will be going off to college in the fall. Ooh! Random note! It snowed. Annnnd sad note: I was going to post the pictures I took, but apparently . . . not. Also I had two really good article-sort of musings posts written up and yeahhh *melts into a despairing puddle*

Anywho, I'm rambling now. Just . . . maybe . . . follow? And leave me a comment! I'll be inactive posting-wise for a long time, but I still love comments! What are your jumbled thoughts? Rant to me down below. XD

Signing off on the next year-and-ten-months,
-- Sarah

P.S. For all my Hamilton frens, here's a proper goodbye: "I'll be back!" Or rather, "Teach me how to say goodbye . . ."

  3. Sarah!!! I am sorry I haven't been keeping up with your blog since you've moved it! I totally followed it, and for some reason I don't get any updates. I am so sorry you won't be able to blog for a while :'( By that time I'll be in college oh my word, but I will never forget to come back when you can be active again. Your mom is like my mom (she doesn't like me blogging all that much, but I know a good chunk of the people who read it so I guess it's OK?). Anyway, I hope that everything goes well for you! And IKR, I procrastinated my sophomore year, and my butt is getting whooped with these AP courses I'm drowning in Happy new year to me ayy LOL. God bless you and I will miss talking with you <3 <3

    3. You're so welcome, Sarah! And aww, thanks! <3 I'm super excited, guys! I have one question about Camp NaNo - I literally just signed up for an account on NaNoWriMo.org and then came over to the camp NaNo site. I'm only doing the one in July, but I haven't been able to add a profile picture to my profile, which is super annoying... do you guys know why it won't work?

      Delete
    4. Hmm . . . that's odd! It worked for me. It shouldn't be an issue, so I'm really not sure! It's in My Camp NaNo >> Camp Info.

      Delete
    5. I'm able to upload my profile pic, but when I hit submit, It says "Page not found"... should I contact NaNo about it? That would be awkward because I had to contact them already about the confirmation email not arriving... oh dear... XD

      Delete
    6. That's so weird! I'd try it in several different browsers, and then as a last resort, try it on your phone. If it still doesn't work, maybe then you should contact them . . .

    7. Just tried three different browsers and my phone with no luck, so I guess I'll just have to contact them again, haha. :P Thanks so much, Sarah!

  13. But-but-but I JUST found your blog (litrally five minutes ago) AND YOU HAVE TO LEAVE??!!!!??? I was looking forward to reading your posts! But, I respect your mother's opinion. Sometimes, I need to take a week or two off. And in this case, you get to take 2 years off. And, when you come back, your mind will be all refreshed for years more of blogging. :)
