Still here. It is funny to think that when I started Book Journey I was writing almost every day if not every day. Those of you who have been with me during those years can probably remember those times. Then I went to almost twice a day when I started the Morning Meanderings… and then usually a bookish conversation same day. I used to visit a minimum of 20 blogs a day and comment.
I remember Justin once had a college project where he was asked to visit 20 blogs and comment and he thought it was so painful and asked me how I could do it day after day…. I found it at that time to be easy… it was fun to check in on topics you enjoy and connecting with fellow blogger with the same interests.
I am so thankful for those days.
Through the years.. things have changed. Some book reviewer/bloggers that I really enjoyed reading, hung it up. Many, including myself, slowed down.
And that brings me to my post today.
Looking at my last post here in March – it is safe to say I did not just slow down… I all but stopped. My life over the past few years has changed as many of you know, and more recently – taking on a full time Marketing job, being active in the community and in adventures has slowed my reading time and even more so slowed my discussing of books and blogging.
But I miss it.
Over this past weekend I worked diligently on an idea that has been buzzing around my brain for awhile now. I created a new website. I want to write. I miss writing… I am just a little more diverse now than Book Journey was created for. I am reading, however I am also biking, planning and attending events, trying to get my life right in many ways, and still grieving in ways I sometimes want to talk about and share.
I created the website I Guess I Am Doing This and I am sooooooo hopeful that you will join me there – reading and following and commenting when you can. I would like that very much. I think it has a little something for everyone… and yes, I am still talking books 🙂
Book Journey will remain here as I have no intention of giving up on this site. It has so much history within its pages… so much of me and how I have grown as a writer and a review since those early days… and maybe someday this will be the fit again.
Anyhoo. Come and fly with me. I would love it.
