Yesterday was the my 7th Blogoversary. Still seems unreal that it has been that long. I know… I say that every year, but, time does fly.
I feel weird celebrating this anniversary. This past year my blogging took a huge hit. I slowed down in 2015, and now I am struggling to get my reviewing mojo back. I'm not sure if it is the reviewing mojo, though, or that I just need to make blogging part of my daily / weekly schedule again. Is it a matter of practise, discipline, or enthusiasm? I'm still enthusiastic about sharing my reads and thoughts.
I have been reading this year, but truthfully, it has slowed down to a crawl. I find myself taking three or four days to finish one book. That is because these days there are other things to do during my free time. I am trying to make a bit of an effort on the socializing front. My not-so-new job is going really well. I'm loving the work as well as the people. However, it keeps me quite busy and involved so that by the time I get home, I'm done! (More like my brain is fried)
I mentioned reading, so what have I read these past few months? Well, a combination of LGBT, UF, fantasy, poetry, and more romance than usual. No science fiction or literary fiction. I've given those two categories a rest for a few months, even as my "to be read" pile bulges at the seams.
Question: What do you do when blogging or reviewing becomes difficult after taking time off?
At this point, I am trying to reboot by posting something every day for 30 consecutive days. I fear content may suffer by posting daily, combined with my lack of time and brain freeze! However, I'm hoping this strategy will work.
Anyway, thank you for hanging around Impressions of a Reader. I'm looking forward to my 8th year!
