Good morning to all of my amazing followers! I hope you are all feeling good and enjoyed the long weekend if you were lucky enough to have one.
To those of you who saw my post yesterday and were kind enough to leave comments and well wishes, thank you so much. You are the reason that I love blogging so much.
I have taken the whole weekend to read, relax and think over my longer term plans. I thought that I had made a firm decision on taking a blogging break but then when this morning came and I had nothing to write or post it left me feeling a bit lost and empty. It made me realise that getting rid of my blog is not at all what I want to do but it doesn’t change the fact that everything I posted yesterday remains true. I am still struggling with time and so I am hoping that I have come up with a good compromise.
As much as I love taking part in weekly memes, this is going to have to stop. I regularly take part in Top 10 Tuesday, Down the TBR Hole and Top 5 Saturday but going forward I will not be regularly featuring these kinds of posts on my blog. The only exception to that will be WWW Wednesday which I will continue to share every Wednesday.
There may be times where I find myself with a bit of extra time to write a post like this and when I can, I will.
I intend on taking my blog back to what it was intended to be when I first set it up and that is to share my book reviews. I hope to share 2-3 book reviews per week on my blog but of course that all depends on how many books I have actually read. Sometimes there might be more, sometimes less. I hope that my followers will continue to enjoy what I am posting anyway!
This is one of the main things that I find myself struggling with. I spend a lot of time every day reading, liking and commenting on posts from other blogs and I really do love to do it but it is costing me so much time every day that I simply can’t keep up with it. Going forward my intent is to set aside a dedicated 30 minutes every day to read through posts that interest me on the WordPress reader and of course like and leave as many comments as possible. I also plan on engaging as normal with my close blogging friends (you know who you are!) and those in TWR gang. If you leave me a comment I really do appreciate it and I will definitely reply to you and make the effort to check out your latest posts and see what you have been up to as well!
I still plan on remaining very active over on Twitter and Bookstagram so if you are not already following me over there then please go ahead and do it as that is where the vast majority of my other bookish content and engagement is going to be going forwards.
Thank you so much for reading my blog and I do hope you’ll continue to check in!
