Hey! Look who it is! Yeah, I know, I suck as a blogger. You would think that with it being summer, I would have plenty of time to read and you’d be right. I have been reading. I just haven’t been blogging.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve actually been reading more than ever before. I lowered my Goodreads goal this year because I just didn’t think I would be able to read more than 100 books. I’m now at 80 books which puts me 20 books ahead of schedule. Deciding to back off from the blog and social media has done wonders for my reading time. It has also done wonders for my happiness. Blogging is stressful work. It used to be a bunch of fun and I’d come home from work and look forward to just working on the blog. That stopped being the case a while ago. I kept thinking about coming back to blogging and I’d start to work on a post and just give up. It held no appeal to me. I mean, it has been almost 8 years. I figured I’d get tired of it way before now.
However, that’s not to say that I’m done. I’ve spent a lot of time lately just thinking about life and my priorities. I spent so much time this summer focusing on other people and I finally decided it’s time to just do what I want. That means I’ll be blogging again but it probably won’t be like it was before. I’m not going back to review all the books I read while I was taking a little blogging break. I will probably mention them around here or on Twitter or Goodreads but that is way too much work and I’m not about that right now. I want to bring the fun back to my blog. I really miss the way blogging used to be for me and it’s time I got that joy back in my life.
So that’s it. I will see you guys around here and on Twitter and probably even on Instagram though I admit that I’m pretty lazy with that one. I’ve missed blogging and I really look forward to jumping back in and seeing where things go!
