Hi Again: A Blogging & Life Update

Hi! It's been a long time since I've written a post and as you may have noticed, I've been mostly absent from the blog this year. Starting college last year, I expected to still continue on blogging, maybe less frequently, but things just didn't pan out the way I hoped. I was bogged down by the stress of school and working and my blog took a back-burner, while I still felt I had to meet all of my blogging obligations. I got stressed and over the past few months, I've struggled with whether or not I want to continue with blogging in general. Blogging has been a passion of mine for so long and I've loved so many of the experiences and friends I've made through it. At the same time, I felt guilty for not being able to read or make as many blogging commitments as I used to. After thinking for some time, I've decided that I'm going to continue on with blogging and just not put as much pressure on myself and perhaps change my style of reviews and incorporate more unique posts in. I've also been considering Booktubing. I figure this summer will be a good time to figure everything out and hopefully finally get a new redesign! For all those who have stuck with the blog, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I really appreciate it and I hope you guys love the content to come <3

  2. I understand what you are going through. I went through something similar after my first child was born. I used to blog and read a lot but took a couple year break. I am just now making time for it after 2 years. Just do what is right for you :)

  3. Oh, don't worry. Most of us have been taking some time off here and there. I just got back from one, in fact. But hey, I'm glad you're keeping the passion for books alive despite your insane schedule.

  4. I'm completely in the same boat right now. While I have been posting easy posts like book hauls and TBRs, I just don't have much time to read or write reviews. Don't let it overwhelm you, we'll be here no matter when you decide you want to come back! Booktube is something I've also been playing with the idea of, but I'm so awkward, so I'm not sure if that's the best option for me. Lol.

    1. Lol, I just filmed a video and I'm definitely not the most comfortable on camera. I love reading tbrs and book hauls and I totally agree with not having had as much time to read and write reviews. I'm hoping to finally catch back up this month. Thank you so much!! :)
