Taking a Step Back


I have recently made the dificult decision to step back and take a break from blogging. I have 3 very little bookworms at home that need my attention as we move into the newest phase of our family life (kindergarten and grade 1 for the big girls, rolling and crawling for the baby). Knowing that the fall and Christmas season (otherwise known as "birthday season" in our family) is hectic enough I know that I will not be able to give this little blog the attention that it needs in the coming months and I don't want to continue blogging only "1/2 way".

I will still be active on Goodreads so if you haven't already please look me up. In the coming weeks/months as I finish up my lingering review committments I will be popping in occasionally (I will be posting them on the blog as well as on Goodreads and Twitter and Amazon like usual).

I hope to return to blogging soon, I will make a reappearance in November as I host the TBR Pile Challange Wrap Up and post any remaining reviews. Then will disappear again until February 2014. I'll be sure to look you up when I return! Thanks for being  such awesome readers and friends – I will miss you the most! :)

    I went away for more than a year from my blog and have only recently returned.

    Things had been extremely difficult because we were adding another member of the family and immigrated and returned so it was hectic. It was hard leaving but it was for the very best.

    You will come back less stressed and with a better strategy on how to manage your blog. One of the things I realized was that it had become an added job that took way too much time. So now I have promised myself to not keep to any particular schedule and to only post about books, things and people which inspire me.

    Because I’m blogging for self interest not income I now figure the follow figures are less important than having great inspired content for those who take the time to visit.

    Good luck Bonnie and God bless

    Life and your little bookworms definitely take top priority. I know you weren't really pleased with part-time blogging, so I think it's good that you've made the decision to officially take a break. I'll miss you and your posts, but we're GoodReads friends, so we'll still see each other, and I'll look forward to you returning whenever you're able to. Tweet me or email me if you ever need anything or just want to chat! <3

      Aww thanks Marie! <3 It was a really hard decision but I’ll still be around in the book world – just without the pressure of keeping up a schedule! :) I’ll definietly be seeing you on Goodreads and make sure to keep me in the loop with your new releases please!
