Taking a Break

Well folks,

Today I'm making it official. I'm taking a break. This blog is a big part of my life. I love running it and talking about books and meeting other people on it. However, it is stressing me out. For the past year or longer I've been posting almost five days a week on this blog. Each day I've posted either a video or a typed post about my favorite (and least favorite) books, but I am tired. My creative juices are completely drained and I feel like I've reduced my reading so I can work on the blog posts. That was never the goal. This was supposed to be all fun.

So I'm taking November off. I might even take more time off. I want to focus on my reading goals for the end of the year and focus on enjoying the books I'm reading. I also want to spend more time with my friends and family since that's what this time of year is all about. You might see an occasional post from me. Actually, you'll see at least one because I'm participating in the Tome Topple Readathon so watch for that. Other than that event though it will be radio silence for a little while. I might get the itch, but I'll be off the radar for about a month. The plan is to start back up on December 1st for some end of year fun! I'll keep you posted if any of that could change.

I cooked up this plan while I was traveling for work. You may have noticed I didn't post much in this first week or so of November. I was considering this plan while I was gone. I still had a few days without my laptop and camera so I really thought a lot about it. I think I need this. I need to step away and let my mind work for a while without this blog. As much as I love it, the drain is really taking its toll on me.

So if you want to see what I'm up to, check out this post to find more of my social media profiles. I will be limiting myself on those as well, but I'll be around if you want to chat. Next week the 14th - 18th I plan to be offline for the most part. I'm giving myself permission to be completely useless for a few weeks and enjoy some other parts of my life rather than the productive/blogging parts.

I'll see you soon! Happy Reading
