I've felt a shift (a major one) in the last year with me and my blog. The community has expanded and grown tremendously in the last six years since I began. I've tried my best to grow and expand with it, but never wanting to detour from my purpose as to why I do this. So this year, I am going back to my blogger roots (in some sense). Am I saying goodbye? Not even. I'm just going to slow it down, not attempt to keep up with the latest trends, and just do what I do... read books and talk about them. I hope you'll stick around with me and continue to be a follower of my blog.
Like all things in life, time continues to march on and we either need to march with it, or create our own path that dictates our own speeds. I am choosing to slow it down a bit, review both old and newer titles, post when the time feels right and not because I have to. I never just want to fade to black with this blog. I've put too much time and love into it. But I also never want this to feel like a chore. So I am doing what's best for me and taking control of the things that do matter, which means scaling down on the blog and reviewing books that feel the need to be discussed. I hope you'll be here for those discussions, and contribute as you always have. Your comments matter and I truly appreciate them!
Whatever the new year may hold for me in both my professional and personal life, I just want peace and the option to step back and take a deep breath when it's needed. There are so many books to come this year that I am most excited about. There is no way I could walk away from sharing them here. Until then, I'll be around on twitter and instagram. Hope to chat up a book or two with you!
