bizchickblogs – a time for rest

in Business, Editor's Corner

a time for rest

This is just a little announcement to say that as of January 2012, I will officially take a rest from blogging. I am not sure when I personally will be posting regularly again, but is going to be undertaking a major brand re-design and site change. I am looking forward to the changes, but also looking forward to the rest before I begin tackling them.

At least once a month, I will publish guest posts and re-publish content that you would like to share with readers here. Please feel free to email me at for details or to ask questions. If you have previously asked and not heard back from me, please just ping me again.

I appreciate your readership so much, and hope that you will continue to remain connected via Facebook and Twitter. That is how you will know when we are back and up running – so stay with us!

Before I sign off for awhile, I need to publicly thank the following people for their contributions and efforts this year here at Without them, there would be nothing here!

As well as a whole community of contributors, readers, blogger-friends, and guests. It has been one awesome year, and I wish I had the time right now to keep it going.

This isn’t goodbye! Just… goodnight. I wish you all the best in 2012! Don’t forget to say hello from time to time on Facebook!

Hi, It’s sad that you have to take time off from blogging. I love to read post from you again soon

Still waiting for your rerutn Tia, missing you in the blogosphere!

Hi Tia,

I hadn’t been by here in a while. So, I thought I’d drop by and see what you’ve been up to. As you know, I follow you on FB. So, I know how busy you’ve been. I admire your courage to take a stance and officially take some much needed time off from blogging. BizChickBlogs will be in good hands in your absence.

You’ve built a blog that can survive (if only for a while) without you. Don’t forget, you know where to find me if there’s anything you want to brainstorm about. It’s always a pleasure chatting/emailing with you. (Brainstorming is good for both of us!)

sure tia you should take rest so that you can come up with great writing .looking forward to your brand re-design and site change.wish you all the very best in 2012

I completely understand your stance.

You have been very busy. I always admire your tenacity and intelligence. Thank you for allowing me to write here, it has been very pleasurable. I’ll still submit my posts. Actually I came here to see what was going on this month. I’ll probably crank one out within a week or so.

Looking forward to the 3.0 version!

Hi Tia! I hope that you will change your mind and continue blogging in a regular basis. I will miss you girl and I hope that success will always follow every step that you make. Happy New Year!

Tia Peterson January 5, 2012 at 8:14 am

@Angelad85 Thank you, Angela!

Taking a rest can be a good idea, for sure. I burned out last year and ended up taking off more time than intended.

I look forward to seeing the new, re-branded site.

Tia Peterson January 5, 2012 at 8:13 am

@Risley Hopefully I’ll be back soon!

Dean Saliba January 1, 2012 at 6:35 am

I hope the blog continues because I have found the articles here incredibly helpful and informative. But I do understand how blogging can drain you and I hope you have a nice rest and come back soon refreshed. 🙂

Tia Peterson January 1, 2012 at 11:06 am

Hey Dean! I think you’ll like the re-brand a lot, so definitely stay tuned!

nice post to relax some one from hectic scheduled life

SarahArrow December 29, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Aww, I will miss you guys. If there is anything I can do to help, just say.

I have just appointed an associate editor to help as running a successful multi-author site is tremendously hard work. Is there any of your team who could take on that bit more to give you some space?

Tia Peterson January 1, 2012 at 11:05 am

@SarahArrow Hey Sarah – We’ll be around! It won’t be a long rest; and so I don’t think there’ll be any need for someone to step in in the meantime. But that could change! I’m keeping all of my options open at this point. I’m sure there are a few people who would want to take the reigns after some time!

C_Linnell December 29, 2011 at 11:08 am

I second what Marlee said Tia. Such an undertaking was and you did it with class and professionalism. I am better for the opportunity. Can’t wait to see what is the next chapter for you and the site. Happy New Year all!

Tia Peterson January 1, 2012 at 11:04 am

@C_Linnell Thank you, Christina! I’m so looking forward to bizchickblogs 3.0 in 2012. It’s going to be fantastic!! And I wish you all the best with your work as well. Continue to let me know what you’re up to!

MARLdblE December 29, 2011 at 8:42 am


You’ve done an amazing job here at bizchicks and I feel very blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of it. I know whatever the future holds for bizchicks will be incredible, because the creator herself is exactly that. Here’s to wonderful, happy, and prosperous New year for you and for the entire bizchicks community!

Tia Peterson January 1, 2012 at 11:03 am

@MARLdblE Hey ho, Marlee. LOL Sorry for all of the butt dials; I swear that I even took your speed dial off (which I don’t even know how it got on there). My phone just likes calling you. It’s a very strange love affair.

Thank you for sticking with me for an entire year! You’re awesome. There is going to be a massive focus on professional development and business development in the next go around for bizchickblogs so I know we’ll continue to work together on things!

Danielle December 29, 2011 at 8:19 am

I love your blogs Tia! Hope you get the break/rest you need – and that we’ll see more from you in the future!

Tia Peterson January 1, 2012 at 11:02 am

Thanks, Danielle! I’ve already got coming back in the plans; it’ll be nice to take it easy and get it done in a relaxed way!
