HI HELLO YES I AM ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!
I have lots of things to tell you all and no good idea on where to start.
First things first, I am expecting to get back into blogging again soon. I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to post or anything, but man, I miss talking to all of you. My reading is still not back up to where it used to be but I have been slowly climbing out of my slump so fingers crossed I can keep that going.
My other piece of very exciting news (at least to me) is that I will be starting a second job as a part-time bookseller at Barnes & Noble! I’m not thrilled that my financial situation is requiring me to get a second job (I’m looking at you, student loans) BUT I am very happy that I was able to get a job that’s related to something I love – books!
As I start to get back into blogging, I’m thinking of making some changes. I kind of want to revamp things as much as I can and clean things up a bit so things are more organized for me (and all of you!). When I first started blogging, I kind of dove into it without thinking about longevity and making things easier for future-me so I’d like to go back and see what I can do to fix that. But that also means going through 2.5-3 years of posts so it could take quite some time. I’m also considering moving over to a paid website, but that would be something that’s a bit far off into the future since, as I’ve already mentioned, finances aren’t great at the moment.
With that revamp, I’m considering also branching out a little and posting at least occasionally, about non-book related things. During my hiatus I actually considered starting a completely new blog, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I really, really don’t want to do that. I like and am proud of what I’ve built here and I don’t want to throw that away. But there are some other things that I’d like to post about from time to time so that may be a thing soon. I still haven’t really decided.
Anyway, I guess I don’t really have much else to say at the moment. I just wanted to pop in and say hi to you all and let you know what I’ve been up to and that I’ll be making my way back into the blogosphere. Things are kind of up in the air for me right now and I have about a million things I want to work on, but lord, I miss you guys!!!
One last thing: HIT ME WITH SOME RECENT RELEASES I SHOULD CHECK OUT. I feel so out of the loop, I have no idea what’s come out recently!!
