Blogging Break... Kind Of.

Hi guys!! So, I am going to be taking a kind of blogging break. I will still have posts going up such as blog tours, a few reviews (so I don't get super behind) and my Book Girls Don't Cry posts. I may even do a book haul or two, but I'm not sure. Basically, only expect maybe 3 posts or so a week until my mini break is over.

Why am I taking a break? Well, it seems like lately I have just been having a hard time with keeping up on blogging. I also have had some life stuff going on. Nothing major or bad, just things that are keeping me busy. More busy than normal. I love having my blog, but I don't want to try to post things just to post. Also, I have been having trouble with saying what I want in reviews, and I think that lately my reviews have just sucked to be honest. I have found that I need to sit and think more on books before I review them, where as before I would read then review almost right away. I want to bring you guys good content, and I think my mind just needs a break. I need to figure out a better way to manage my time so I don't feel overwhelmed. I think that once I get my mindset back to where it was, I will be all good to go!

For the rest of September I will be taking a blogging break. As I said, I will have posts going up, and I will still comment on blogs, just not nearly as much. I will be around if you need me or just want to chat. I will respond to tweets and try to chat you guys up. I hope to be back to things like normal, or with a modified schedule by October 1st. I hope you guys will still be here. I love you all!!!

  1. I'm really glad that you're taking a blogging break, Amy. Not because I want you to leave, lol, but because it sounds like you really need it and you totally deserve one! Just like you said on my blog, we'll all be here for you when you come back so there's no need to worry :D

    I hope you enjoy your blogging break and your new job! (I remember you saying you got a new job but I can't remember if it was a job or something else related to that lol)

    I LOVE YOUR FACE! <33333

    1. I just feel like I have been such a horrible blogger lately, and I really want to get back to the way I used to be. I love interacting with everyone, and I haven't been lately. I do posts really last minute and my reviews aren't very good at all. I just need to step back a little so I can be the me who started this blog. Love your face right back hon!!!

  2. I'm a bit overwhelmed myself and I haven't been a great commenter or blogger lately. I hope you find inspiration throughout that break and be sure to read some good books for YOU! Have a great vacation, hon! :)

    1. It does really get hard to keep up on. I love it and want to continue, but I just need to manage my time better.

    1. I hear ya! I have been doing that too. Sitting on my couch watching a TV show with my laptop on my lap writing a review. I'm hoping a few weeks taking it a little easier will help me get back to blogging how I used to.

  4. I think that will be good for you and get you refreshed! :) Also you'll be starting a job soon, right? You need to save your energy for that and spend time with you lil one before you see her less every day.

  6. If I was starting a new job, I would need a blogging break too! But it sounds like you kind of need one anyway. But just slowing down will be what you need, but taking a month to back off a bit and figure it out sounds like a good plan. And we're not going anywhere!

  7. I have been feeling like you too lately. My reviews don't feel right and I'm just not in the mood to do anything anymore. Anyways, you will be missed! Hugs!

  10. Oh, good for you for taking a break hun! I can SO relate to being behind right now so take time to rest or whatever - we'll still love you when you get back!! I might have to take something of a break soon too, I am juggling two jobs right now and I don't have to tell you my blogging/commenting/reading has suffered for it :( Hopefully things will settle for you soon XOX

My blog is now an award free zone. I really appreciate the thought, but stopping by is reward enough for me. Thank you so much!!

I love comments! I will try to respond to as many as I can. I read every one of them, even if I do not respond to them all.
