Saying Hi to a Hiatus

Hey everyone, thanks for coming on by this week (despite the title you read and may be questioning).

I’m feeling a bit maxed out right now. Between a new job, planning a wedding, digging in with a steering committee to put on the first Young Professional Summit in Eugene before June, keeping up with family & friends, focusing on my health, and everything in between – there just comes a time you need to take a pause & breathe. 

Unfortunately, my energy needs to be put into particular aspects of my life that are happening soon with 100% focus and mental clarity. I have decided to say hi to a hiatus here at

I’ll be around on social media, so I’ll still be interacting! I just need to take some time from the blog before I run myself too thin. This is a balance I’ve been working to maintain since graduating from college. When I say “yes” to too many different things, I tend to lose balance within. 

I’ll be back soon – but ’till then, I’m going on a brief pause with content for the time being! 

Thank you all for your continued following & support – you all seriously rock. 

P.S. If you’re a young professional (ages 20-40) in the Eugene area, definitely consider coming to the first ever Young Professional Summit! A full day event set to inform, inspire, and get you involved. Check out, or find us on facebook, twitter, and instagram. I’ll be looking forward to seeing you there!

  1. I am SO HAPPY FOR YOU and so entirely supportive of this! I’m thinking of taking some time off blogging after the Track Your Spending challenge wraps up for exactly the same reasons and I’m so happy for you that you’re giving yourself the space to do it – I “feel bad” dropping down to one post a week this month but something had to give! We’ll all be here when you get back – good luck with your conference!

    1. Thank you so much for this comment, Des! It means more than you know. 🙂 I kept having the same “feeling bad” mentality, but recognized it was something I needed to do for myself. I appreciate your encouraging words!


  2. I completely understand how you feel Alyssa! I have taken so many mini hiatuses it’s not even funny :). I was always so impressed how you and other bloggers could consistently post each week. It’s something that I always aspired to, but something I couldn’t do most weeks.

    Even though I feel that blogging has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done, it was always the first thing that got pushed to the side when life got in the way. I’ve stayed up late nights completing posts, but it’s been hard!

    I wish you well on your hiatus! Don’t be a stranger!

    1. Thanks for your support, Vic! It’s tough when you’re balancing a lot at once. Sometimes you’ve got to just focus on what’s best for the time! You know I love blogging about personal finance & reading other content related to it, but for right now it’s best for me to slow down. 🙂


  3. Oh gosh, I can so totally understand. Blogging is a pretty serious time commitment, and sometimes other things are just more pressing. I hope the hiatus gives you a chance to breathe and focus on all these other things that are important to you. Good luck with the summit; that sounds awesome! And see you on Twitter! 🙂

  4. Good for you for making this choice — I’m sure it was tough! But your instincts are in the right place, so trust them. We’ll all still be here when you decide you have the space to take this back on. (And we’ll see you on Twitter between now and then, of course.) 🙂 Sending the love…
