Welcome to my new series of posts Musing by Moonlight, where I take the opportunity to get off my chest anything and everything to do with books.
Or maybe not.
Depends how I feel.
Cutting back on blogging
After eighteen months of posting at least five times a week and sometimes seven, I’m making a change on the blog to only post when I can.
The reason for this is because I’m getting married later this year and as such I have much less time to read, which means less time to blog as well.
I love my blog but posting 7 days a week is exhausting. I am normally on top of my schedule and schedule posts up to two weeks in advance, but I’ve reached today and seen a long line of posts I’m yet to write and all I can think is, “Bugger it.”
Blogging is not an obligation or a job, it’s a hobby.
I’ll still be doing Waiting on Wednesday because let’s face it, I’ll never run out of books I want to read. Top Ten Tuesday will probably still be fairly regular as it’s one of my favourite memes, unless it’s a topic I don’t care for. The 30 Day Animorphs Challenge will still post on Thursdays, and 30 Day Book Challenge is still active and will be posted sporadically. I still want to promote books even if I can’t review every week.
But if I miss a day (or two) I’m not going to beat myself up. You might get two posts a week, you might get seven. I’m going to force myself to be OK with that. I simply don’t have the time to worry.
One of the reasons I posted so often was to prove to publishers I was worth investing in for ARCs, and it’s reached a point where I’m overwhelmed with books to read so I don’t exactly need any help from publishers now.
With over 1500 followers on all platforms all I can say is thank you for your loyalty and support and I don’t want to let you down.
