Lately, my life has been quite busy. What with baby coming and moving into new digs and all of the things, I haven’t been reading as much lately and I haven’t been blogging as much.
Remember when I took that hiatus last year? I took time off to decide whether or not I wanted to blog again and what it would look like if I did, etc.
Things have come full circle.
I do miss reading, but I know that fire will come back.
I do not miss blogging. Not even a little bit.
Let me make this clear - I ADORE reading other people’s blogs and Top Ten lists and discussion posts and reviews and all of that. Truly, I do. Even if I don’t comment, I’m reading and loving it and it’s keeping me so very happy.
As I’m reading Jane Eyre and Bitterblue, both of which I am LOVING, I have absolutely no desire to write a review or discussion post or anything about either of them. Do I want to talk to friends about them? Sure! When I’m done, will I want to share my very brief thoughts? Kinda! Do I want to finish those, start a new book, and feel no pressure to write a review or something insightful? YES. SO MUCH YES.
So as I’m feeling these feels and wondering these wonders, I decided to make a quiz for myself to look at in two weeks and use that as the ultimate decision maker. I’m open to your suggestions, insight, thoughts and whatever else you have to share with me so please do!
Lisa’s To Blog or Not To Blog Quiz
To be taken 2 weeks from today
1. You’ve finished at least one or the other of your current books (Jane Eyre and Bitterblue). Did you have any desire to write a review or share your thoughts in any way?
2. Did you have trouble deciding on the next book to read because you want to read a finished copy of something instead of an ARC you have on the shelf?
3. Have you felt the itch to blog something not meme related or a .jpeg/.gif in the last two weeks?
4. Do you want to stay involved in the Book Blogger community?5. Do you want to continue blogging about books at Lisa is Busy Nerding?
I know that the awesome duo over at Makeshift Bookmark (Jen & Carla) have recently thrown in the blogging towel in favor of a tumblr and I gotta be real - that idea appeals to me a WHOLE HELLUVA LOT. Do any of you know of other blogs that do that? As a reader, how much do you like that idea and format? I'm obviously going to do what I want to do ultimately, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts regardless.
Thanks for listening and for your feedback and support. As always!
