Is this thing on?
Hello! Long time, no post, huh?
Well, I’m back. It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted anything, and I’m finally feeling the desire to get back into the writing saddle.
Nothing bad happened, it just got to the point where I started taking this blogging thing a little too seriously and it was starting to feel like a chore. At some point I realized that I really wanted to just read and enjoy it and not have to write anything about it. So that’s what I’ve been doing. Reading.
And working! Last September I became a paid staff member of my local library! Dream job. It doesn’t even feel like a job. I get to work with books, and talk about books, and I get paid to do so. I love it. The people I work with are awesome, the patrons are awesome, and I couldn’t be happier.
You’ll notice that things look a little simpler around here. I think the heaviness of my last blog design was adding to the heaviness I felt about writing. I’ve decluttered and lightened things up, hoping that I will stay light about posting and writing about what I love. Reviews will hopefully be a little less “professional” and more lighthearted. I really needed to change the whole feel of things here.
I’ve been reading some great books, and I’ll be starting the reviews back up with a series that I’m super enjoying right now (even if it is a bit disturbing, ahem).
I hope I didn’t lose too many followers over my year of rest. If you’ve kept me in your feed readers or in your inboxes, I thank you. I’ve missed you guys!
