After lots and lots of thought, I’ve decided that I’ll no longer be doing formal reviews on my blog.
The thing is I really dislike writing reviews. I find them such a chore and they take me twice as long to write as any other post. Recently I’ve been going through a bit of a blogging and reading slump, so I’m in the process of having a major blog spring clean. I knew immediately that my blogging block was coming from the frustrating process I had to go through every single time I sat down to write a review.
Reviews are some of the least-liked posts in the blogosphere, but for some crazy reason we all feel obligated to write them. It’s as if you’re not a “real” blogger if you don’t write them. I want to try and break away from that thought.
So what does this mean?
You’ll be seeing lots more book recommendation posts and book-related discussions on the blog from now on and, hopefully, a lot more posts altogether! Although there may be an odd review popping up now and again, mostly I’ll be changing up a lot of the content that features on the blog. I’m very excited about it!
