Hey everyone. I'm posting this because unfortunately I'm the type of person that needs permission to do things, and it's your permission I need.
Lately I've been feeling a clear lack of excitement for writing my blog and reading the books needed for it. It has been weighing heavily on me. Because of this I feel like I'm not giving the blog the effort YOU ALL deserve. It feels half done on my part. I'm thinking about taking the months of December and January off from blogging.
During the time off I want to try to get back to the heart of what this blog should be - my love of reading. When I come back I want this blog to get back to just sharing my love of reading and the MG/YA genres. I also want to come back knowing for MYSELF that giveaways and interviews and getting the "cool" books are awesome and fun UNTIL it all stresses me out. And that this blog can be fantastic without all that as long as my passion for books stays at the core.
Here's where you all come in. Sadly I need "permission" to do that - take the time off! And yes I realize how sad sounding that makes me. But I need you to remind me that when I come back any followers I lost will be replaced by ones just as great (well actually I hear that Google is getting rid of GFC so that may not matter!). I just kinda need a little gentle push that say it's ok - go do what you need.
I love you all now - I'll love you more if you can give me that :)
And all that are reading this - I really do love you all. The fact that I somehow do something ok enough to bring you here amazes me and I am thankful for each and every one of you! I<3!!!!
AMENDED!!! For those I've promised reviews/interviews/guest posts to!! These, of course would still happen but I would get them done in the next two weeks. I guess that means that I'd take mid-December to Valentine's Day off!
