It's been almost a year since I made an entry to this blog. I suppose I could blame it on the fact that it has been a very eventful last 12 months; my wedding, a honeymoon in Ireland, a husband in the hospital for two weeks. Yeah, that's a lot.
And then there are the usual suspects; Christmas, New Years...life in general.
I can't accurately say that being busy is the only culprit for my inactivity here, though. If I think about it honestly, I fell into a self-imposed rut. I was having a great time posting reviews and sharing thoughts with some very artistic and intelligent people. I was going full force trying to read enough books to keep the daily book reviews coming, whilst reading through others' sites and attempting to become an active member in the blogging community. And then I burnt out.
I felt like I couldn't read a book just to enjoy it anymore. I was always thinking about the review I was going to write, and how many books I could squeeze in this week. That's way too much stress surrounding something that I consider to be my relaxation outlet.
I've decided to come back and give it another shot, however this time I'm not going to hold myself to such a high standard. I'm not a professional blogger, there is no need for me to have an entry every day. I'm going to post at my leisure; daily, weekly, monthly, whatever strikes me at the time.
I'll just have to be confident in the fact that those who find my posts interesting do not have the attention span of a fly (or maybe they do :-s ), and therefore won't forget about me if I'm not on their computer screen every day.
Glad to be back, all the same.
