Nope, I don’t mean the Take That song where Lulu made an appearance, I mean the fire within me and the passion for book blogging!
When I first started blogging I felt like this:
But now, I’m starting to feel like this:
Sad, isn’t it?
The thing is, when I first started I had lots of spare time and a job that didn’t require travelling and also, that it had different hours, and now? I don’t seem to have ANY spare time and it’s stressing me out a little bit. I love reading and do read quite often, so that’s good, but now, I feel like the reviewing bit and blogging about books things is taking a back seat.
When I get home from work I don’t fancy getting my Laptop out and blogging, but more that I fancy a brew and a good book to read in bed.
So, I’m going to try a few things to help me make sure I don’t start hating blogging!
Close my review requests
I feel sad about doing this, but I am not currently accepting any new review requests. At the moment, I seem to be focusing my time on reading request books and not reading the books I’ve purchased myself. I will be sure to open requests soon, though – keep your eyes on my review policy page!
Pick a day to blog and actually use it
As it says above, I need to pick a day (or evening) to blog and actually use it. I tend to blog on my phone and the visual takes a back seat, I need to start using Photoshop again! If I actually sit down at my Laptop and blog, I know my blog will definitely have posts ready!
Take a hiatus now and again
I think it’s healthy to take a little break and I’ve decided that I might take a blogging break here and there, just so I can keep on-top of things.
I know the above are quite easy things to do and only little, but I’m sure they’ll make a huge difference to me!
