A quick update and apology.
It has been quite a while. So hello friends, how are you, I missed you!
Once again I found myself on a mini-hiatus, though as you can see this one will not be a year and a half of inactivity. The details are the usual suspects; a major shake up at work once again upended everything. Reading time once again dipped before being pulled back. Even audiobook time took a toll as my travel got messed around with a bit. Life is fine, this wasn’t a shake up that messed with quality of life for which I am thankful; it truly is only blogging that is being affected negativity.
But I am back, and a have a few reviews lined up again for next week, and am ready to get back in the saddle. This is good for me!
The sad part is the sacrifices I am going have to make to keep this going this time.
-I have always prided myself on being one of the more social bloggers around. Many people over the years have told me that I was one of, if not the, first to leave a comment on their new blogs. I love doing it. But it takes time. LOTS of time. I would often spend more time visiting blogs that writing my own. And that is time I currently don’t have. As such I will not be checking Feedly until things work out again.
This doesn’t mean I wont check out links that interest me. Just that I will probably be more in the comment-back club than I used to. I hope people understand.
-I also will not be quite so new release focused. Now that work has stabilized again a lot of my reading will be audio format. While some publishers do keep me in the now with audio books it is still easier to grab older books from the library for this purpose.
-Most importantly I am going to try some shorter reviews. 500 words don’t come as easy as they used to. Sometimes the words flow like water and when the inspiration hits so be it, I will write. But expect more two/three paragraph reviews with some quick thoughts when it is all I can come up with.
My goal is to not burn out completely and walk away because I know if I do that again it is probably for the last time. Hopefully these changes will make it happen.
Thank you for reading.
