Now, I highly doubt any of you have noticed but I haven't posted in about 3 weeks. And let me tell you, it's been great! So great I almost considered deleting my blog entirely. However I was very hormonal when I was thinking that and luckily I didn't follow through. So let me just go through what I've been thinking lately.
So in January of 2015 I created this blog. I created it because I wanted not only a place to share my thoughts on books, but to also have a place where I could express my thoughts and feelings without any judgement from friends or family. For a while this worked well. But then my parents and close friends discovered my blog, and there went my outlet. It might sound strange that I am completely fine sharing my innermost thoughts with a bunch of strangers I'venwver met, but all at the idea of the people closest to me reading them. But it's true. I'm also pretty strange so it makes sense . But alas, I felt like I was holding back a lot in my discussions as well as my reviews. I've never been untruthful but small details like the fact that I thought the main character was super duper sexy were often left out.
Moreso, I haven't felt like I was getting enough interaction with my followers to warrant putting the time and effort in to writing 5 posts a week. Honestly it's fine, but it's so disheartening writing reviews and discussions and asking people questions to get literally nothing. It feels like I'm writing to myself half the time and I was over it.
Not only that, but I was so stressed with writing reviews that I wasn't even enjoying them anymore. I felt like I was letting people down (I don't know who either because no one reads this anyway) for not reviewing every single book. And not writing eloquent reviews which were both entertaining and critical. Honestly, I'm a shit and I don't understand half the literary techniques used in books, so by the end I just felt like I was repeating the same thing over and over. Not fun.
So I guess what im trying to say is: I wasn't enjoying it anymore. So I've decided to change things up. From now on, I will be posting but immnot going to stick to a schedule. If I feel strongly about a book (either in a good way or a bad way) I may write a review. You can expect to see monthly wrap ups (every month duh) and maybe the occasional discussion post or Top Ten Tuesday. He blog will have more swearing than it has in the past, and it will also be a lot more centered around New Adult romance. So if you're not in to that genre you might not want to stick around. But if you do, I would love that! I really just want a place I can rant and rave about books I love and hate, and maybe even open the discussion to more than just myself. Thank you to those who have stuck with me from the beginning, I appreciate you all!
