Well, I made the decision.
I need to take a proper step back and just take a break.
I’m totally stressing about this – which clearly means I need a break.
But I need blogging to become fun again, and stop being a chore. Because that’s what it has become – a chore. And I hate that. I hate that I have to force myself to read books and review them.
This won’t be a full step back because I do have some posts already planned/promised. I have a couple of ARCs I agreed to review in exchange for reviews, so those will be up throughout the month. But for the most part, I’m going to be MIA on here.
It might not look it, but blogging – running Writing the Universe – is a full-time job. And between it and my paying FT job and the insane OT I’m putting in; I’m stressed and tired all of the time. And unfortunately, blogging doesn’t pay me – so it’s got to be pushed to a back burner temporarily. I really hate doing this, and like I said, it’s stressing me out to do so, but I need a break. I need a breather.
So I just wanted to pop on here real quick and let y’all know that I’m going on a mini-semi hiatus. I’m trying to be more active on Instagram and I’m always scrolling Twitter. I’m going to keep reading and occasionally sharing my thoughts on those platforms. But I’m going to take this month and keep writing reviews and doing some other posts so when September rolls around, I’ll have some stuff pre-written and ready to go.
I do have a question – will you still want to see my July Book Haul & Wrap Up posts come September? Let me know in the comments.
With that being said, I’m gonna go curl up on my bead and knock out a little more of my current read before crashing. I might be on vacation, but one does not get to sleep in until all hours when there is a houseful of people LOL.
I’ll see y’all in September!
