Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while. Well, since February to be exact. And this wasn’t planned. It kinda, sorta just happened. I’d been entertaining the idea of a hiatus for some time, but never knew how to go about it.
Should I make a post saying goodbye for now? Should I just focus on blog hopping? Or should I just disappear into thin air? Apparently the latter was my choice.
WHY I STOPPED BLOGGING
For several reasons. (1) Blogging started to feel like a chore (2) I was reading to review, not reading to enjoy (3) I was spending money I didn’t have on way too many books (4) There were some older books I’d been wanting to read but never got around to reading because I was focusing too much on reviews for new releases (5) Adulting was hitting me hard and (6) I just needed a break.
Everything had been building up and I just started feeling mentally stressed. I didn’t want blogging to be part of the issue anymore, so I decided to let it go temporarily before I ended up deleting my blog permanently (which I would have immediately regretted the moment I pressed the button).
Honestly, this has worked out well because I’m once again excited about blogging and sharing my ideas with all of you.
SO WHAT NOW?
I want to share what I’ve gotten accomplished during my absence but I think I’ll save that for the next post! I’ll also update you all on the books I’ve read and bought as well as the bookish events I’ve attended recently (namely the LA Times Festival of Books). I’m not decided on whether I’ll post reviews for all the books I’ve read but I can positively say there will be one or two reviews coming out this month for semi-recent releases!
Before I go, I will say that I’ve been considering changing my blog’s name and design, but not sure just yet. I have a list of alternate names, but even I’m not fully on board with changing my blog so drastically. Guess we’ll see.
FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK
You know, it feels great to post something. My posting may be sporadic at first but I think I’ll be returning to scheduled posts. It just worked much better that way. I won’t be posting every day. Three times a week is my aim. I’m determined to get back in the blogging game.
I’ll also be trying very hard to do some blog hopping these coming weeks! I’ve missed you all so much 😀
THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY!
I’ll be seeing you ❤
