Things have been a little quiet around here lately.
When I first started this blog, I felt like I had to post CONSTANTLY or no one would ever read my blog or know what I thought about a book or some other kind of crazy thing. Plus I was just reading SO MUCH and I had enough content.
After a while (a long while, to be sure) I slowed down. I didn’t feel like the world would end if I read some books and didn’t review them or if I didn’t stick to a reading schedule or if I only posted once a week. I didn’t seem to lose anything from that.
Now I’m a little more than two years in. I’m coming off a reading slump that turned into only reading incredibly long books that I didn’t even plan on reviewing that turned into either getting out of the habit of reviewing/blogging or maybe just a blogging slump? I’m reading a TON (review books, even!), but I have zero motivation to talk about the books or get pumped over them – even when I really like everything I’ve been reading lately. I’m not even linking up my TTTs when I do them! I don’t even know who I am.
Is it the terrible twos? Is that a thing in blogging or is it only children and puppies? I paid for another year of my domain in February and even more recently registered and booked travel accommodations for ALA Annual and it seems like I immediately lost all interest in blogging. Well…blogging about books. At this point I feel obligated to do it because I paid for my blog and the conference, and I really hate that feeling.
I hope to get my groove back and get excited to talk about books again. In the meantime, I’m considering going back to a “not my blog name” twitter because the only book/blog related things I ever tweet about are blog posts pretty much and my blogging slump makes me feel like distancing myself from Paperback Heart.
Anyway. This post is an apology to anyone who’s noticed my half-assery and for the extremely probable future half-assery. And for this gif because I haven’t been able to use it yet:
