CHANGES ARE COMING. No, not winter. I hope not anyway!
I am a book blogger, which means I read books. I’m supposed to enjoy reading, aren’t I? Lately, though, some of the fun has been sucked out of reading and I think this is due to blogging, and the pressure. Pressure is something that affects me a lot and recently it’s got so that I’ve been considering giving up blogging for good. I put so much work in, and then crumble.
With lots of thinking, I’ve decided there needs to be a change. And a big one.
My blog will no longer be just a book blog, I’m going to use it to document the things I read. This means there will probably be less reviews, and instead I’ll be using more pictures in my posts and just discussing my thoughts. This way, the majority of the books I read get coverage, and I just get to have fun talking about the books I love!
I’m not going to have a blog schedule either – when I’ve read something and want to talk about it, I’ll write a post on it if I choose. I want to make blogging FUN again, with a capital F, U and N. I’m just going to cut down on everything I do because I’ve realised just how much I have been doing in the past, and it’s a lot. Way too much for one person!
It doesn’t mean much change for all of you – in fact, you get the better deal!
I’d like to think of my blog as a safe haven for people who love reading. I’ll be interacting a lot more and replying to blog comments. I’d love to start up some really good conversations, and interaction for me is the one thing I’m going to be concentrating on.
I have quite a few posts planned, and it shall hopefully be starting from tomorrow, with a new post. I’m going to trial it for a month and then assess how things are going, but I’m really hoping it works!
Documenting what I read will hopefully be fun, and it’s hard to explain fully, so you should work it out once I’ve started to write the posts.
As a special present, have a picture of Boris in his cosy!
