Update & Turning 6

Posted June 1, 2017 | 28 Comments

Here I am! As you may have noticed (or not) I’ve been more MIA than usual, but I’m here with an update. Lucky you!

Okay, so I usually slow down with the blog this time of year because it’s a mixture of busy and vacation time, so I let the blog rest. It also coincides with my blogoversary, which is this week. I’ve been at this for 6 years. Six looong years. I’ve seriously considered quitting several times, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. My posting has definitely waned though.

The thing is, I’ve only been posting like once a week for awhile now, but it’s at the point where I can’t do even that. I’m having a difficult time writing reviews. They’ve been on the decline, but it’s pretty bad now. Thought I’d try different types of posts, but nada. I don’t know, I’ll feel like I have something to say, get ready to type it up, but then totally deflate. I mean, I have some quick notes about each book, but nothing substantial. Can’t you all just read my mind? It would make things so much easier. Dirtier, but easier.

Blogging may be on the decline, but reading is going well. I still don’t read as much as I used to, but I’ve mostly enjoyed what I have read. Just don’t ask me to talk about them. πŸ˜€

So, where does that leave the blog? *shrugs* I’ll keep trying! I will for sure post my top reads of the year so far later this month, though.

Thank you for visiting when I actually do post! You can always add me on Facebook since I’m more active there.

    This is my 6 year too, but in September. And I’m totally in the same boat. I’ve been reading just not blogging lol. Blog anarchy!!!

  2. My blog will be six in November and I have been there too. I really considered stopping last year after losing my mom, but then again it kept me sane. I keep plugging away because it keeps me sane and gives me something to do to keep my mind off things. My reading is up and down. This past week has been terrible. I quit three books. Please don’t quit. I would miss you way too much!

    Your blog is six years old now! Post when you can, I don’t mind short posts or infrequent ones. Blogging should be fun.

  4. Hey congrats!! *throws confetti* Glad you’re sticking around even if you’re posting less. Breaks are good, and you gotta go with your mood. If you don’t feel like reviewing , that ‘s cool – this is supposed to be fun after all!

    Hope you have a great June!

    I see you’re reading One of Us is Lying. Are you liking it? I just finished it… thought it was pretty good.

  5. Wow, 6 years! That’s totally quite a long time. And I totally understand though, I have my own share of time off with the blog too that I can’t even count how many times I want to quit lol. But surprise surprise, I’m still here hehe.

    Maybe you could try video reviewing though, or maybe twitter review but either way, I know you can definitely decide what to do next πŸ˜‰

  6. Happy Blog-versary and I can totally relate! I used to blog alot, and ended up leaving for a while then I came back. It’s supposed to be fun, not work. Enjoy your break!

  7. Congratulations on making it to six years! That in and of itself is pretty awesome. I am definitely not blogging as much as I used to. And I feel you when it comes to review writing. It is a real struggle for me too these days. I just don’t have the motivation to sit down and write. Sometimes doing mini-reviews helps–but not always. πŸ™ I have some stuff pre-scheduled so that is helping me for now, but when it runs out . . .

    Blog when and if you can. We do understand. πŸ™‚ Have a great week, Christy!
