If you follow me on Twitter then you know I’ve had a lot of trouble getting into blogging these past few months. It even affected my reading for a while. I think scheduling 3 reviews every week in September didn’t help at all. So I decided that during December no posts would go up and I would take a small break until the new year. It’s the slowest month for views on here anyway, and I want to focus on family during Christmas and the new year.
I’m not sure if it was just a slump or something else that was bringing this on. Blogging and writing reviews felt like a chore that I wasn’t looking forward to. I even debated stopping blogging for a while because I didn’t think I would be able to get back into it.
But I do still want to do this, and I realized I just needed a bit of a change. I’ve even been focusing on reading my own books and not writing reviews for them as part of my break. Even re-reading some that I loved, which really helped! I would also miss the blogging community, although I would still keep in contact with everyone if I had stopped blogging. A lot of bloggers and authors have been so nice to me and some have even been inspiring me and encouraging me to keep up with this.
So as I type this I’ve already been thinking of ideas and I’m planning some stuff for the new year. I’m not going to focus solely on reviews, but I’m hoping to have a variety of book blogging stuff and maybe even some other things over time, depending on what direction I decide to take. It will be slow to start but I’m going to take my time and enjoy it.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me, and I’ll see you in the new year!
