Hello, everyone! I’m sure you all have noticed that I haven’t been posting lately. There isn’t one specific reason behind that – more like a bunch of different, smaller reasons. I figured I’d come on here and at least try to explain the hiatus. The last year has been a bit rough for me. Mental health is incredibly important, and I was, and still am, severely slacking on taking care of my own. I’m slowly starting to realize that you can’t expect every problem to go away by ignoring it, and my creative hobby side has suffered tremendously because of that.
I haven’t had the motivation or the desire to read much this year. Without reading, I don’t have a ton to really blog or post about either. Because of that, this poor blog has dwindled. I don’t think I’ve made a huge impact on the book blogging world by any means, but it does make me sad to know that I’ve let down some of the people who regularly comment on or read my posts. That speck of guilt grew bigger and bigger the longer I took between posts, and it has been weighing on me for far too long. I don’t want to keep on ignoring the blog, so I figured I should at least let everyone know that I’m taking a break.
I don’t want people to think I’ve up and disappeared, but I think it would be good for me to back away for a little while. I’m hoping after the stress of the holidays (working two retail jobs is no joke), I’ll be able to read and post again without feeling like I’m forcing myself. If I force myself, I’ll grow to hate it. And I can’t imagine a world where I hate reading. My goal is January 2020, so I hope to see everyone then! If I don’t post again then, just know I’m not ready. I will be back though, that you can know for certain.
Happy holidays to everyone!
Until next time,
