Early this year, I made a post where I said I wasn’t going to be blogging anymore. I thought a lot about it, but as soon as I published the post I realized that it just didn’t set right with me. I sounded like a complete psycho, but the next day I changed my mind. It is hard to say goodbye to something you have spent years working on, and I realized then that I just wasn’t ready. But now I am.
I can give you the usual speech about not having enough time – and it is true. For the last year or so, with my weird work schedule, I don’t always get the time I need to devote to doing the blog justice. And with my nature, I don’t do half-assed well. If I can’t do something right, I don’t want to do it at all. But even more than the time issue, lately I find myself…disconnected, I guess, from it all. I still have my raging obsession for all things Ilona and Nalini, still love Briggs and Armstrong, still can’t shake my Feehan or Leigh habit. But that’s all on the reading front. On the blogging front, I just find myself not so interested. I found the cover for the next Karen Marie Moning Fever book, and where usually I would immediately do a Cover Lover post for it and gush and swoon, this time I just didn’t feel the need. For a while, I looked every couple of days hoping to find info on the next Kresley Cole book. But now? Couldn’t tell you the last time I checked. That’s not the way I like to be.
So, long story long, I might be pressed for time, but if I still had the drive I would make the time. I just don’t. I want to be a reader again, and not feel guilty when I pick up a book I want to read instead one I need to read to get caught up. I will always appreciate everyone who took the time to send over their reviews, who emailed me release info and covers they had found, those who made book and author recommendations. I will always be grateful for those who took the time to make a comment. I appreciate it so much. In my real life, there is no one who reads what I read, and it was so nice to share a community where we have common interests. I will be leaving everything up as it is for anyone who needs to grab whatever info appeals to them, and if there is anyone who wants to take the plunge and take the blog over just give me a shout. So thanks for everything, everyone. It has been much appreciated.
