Life has been great lately. Things are happening. My life feels like it’s starting over. I want to blog about all these things, but I feel like I’ve put myself into a book blogger box. And I have more to talk about than books. I started this book blog to have a positive project while I was unemployed. It also got me to read my books, finish them, and explore new things. I even think it helped me get my job at BN. But now, with a full-time job, summer in full swing, wedding planning, and general life renewal, I don’t have as much time to read. And that’s ok. I still read every night, and during my lunch breaks, but it’s not enough to sustain a full-on book blog.
I have discussed this with my closest blogger and reader friends. I think I am going to step into more of a general life blog. I used to get worried that my life was too boring to be blogged about, or that I would be viewed as self-absorbed to write about myself. But, I don’t view any of the blogs I read as self-praising. I read them because I like the writers. I wish I could be friends with them in real life, and AM friends with some of them in real life.
Why not? I’ll still write about books I read, maybe once a week, but not feel that I can only write about books. I can tell you about all the craziness that has happened over the past month, and how excited I am about future ventures. I can tell you how I am trying to stay healthy, what I cook once in awhile, and humor you with my future scientist husband’s view of the world (often hilarious). Also, I can incorporate some of the fun things I have seen on other people’s blogs; Things that I want to do, but that don’t fit in the realm of a book blog.
If you feel that my blog doesn’t keep pace with your reading needs anymore, I can suggest several book bloggers to you. If you still want to hang out with me and my life, you are more than welcome to do so. Blogging is so great, especially because it’s my blog and my rules. I say I’m changing, and that’s that. So, who’s with me? And also, any suggestions for a new blog title? All contributions and comments are appreciated.
See you next time!
