For the past few months, I’ve been taking a lot of me time. You may have noticed that this blog has been silent, even though I’ve been tweeting about books and things.
I feel like I’ve gotten more of a handle on things now. I spent a lot of this time away thinking about how I could make this blog manageable, feasible, and still fun despite having a really busy work and social life. This is what I came up with, and this is what you can expect from Mostly YA Lit for the next few months:
4) Less Emphasis on ARCs and New Releases – Part of the reason for my blogging slump is because I wasn’t feeling overly inspired by a lot of what I was reading. I’ve been looking backwards and going for books that have been reviewed and loved, and it’s been so refreshing to read whatever I want to read, with the knowledge that the book is beloved by the book community. This doesn’t mean I’m giving up on ARCs – but if I do read and review an ARC or new book, you’ll know that it’s because I was super-pumped about it.
5) Fewer Posts – This is, unfortunately, very necessary, as my new job is keeping me late more nights than I’d like, and I’d like to have a life. I’m unable to keep up with the reading and blogging schedule I used to set for myself, and it tends to make me feel guilty when I don’t. For now, I will be working on a schedule of about two posts a week. Hopefully, one will be a review or a fun post, and the other will be a meme, most likely Waiting on Wednesday.
I’m hoping this is going to work for everyone. I’m excited to start blogging again – I’ve really missed putting my thoughts out there and hearing from you. Please bear with me as I try all of these new things – and please let me know what’s working and what’s not in my comments, on Twitter, on Facebook, or by email.
I’m looking forward to being part of your book community again.
