Hello world! I have not disappeared from Planet Earth, even if it can seem so. Sadly I had a lot of great project for my blog, I wanted to change a lot of things around: I was hoping to change something about the graphic, for example, and I was thinking about changing a bit my reviews, and, the most important thing of all, I was hoping to commit more with my blog and to make it more… personal.
When I started it I had some great plans, but the time is always limited, life happens and so, more and more, this blog has become a place in which I post only about ARCs and that… that isn’t sitting so well with me. I mean, I love ARCs and the price to get them it’s to write a review for them, and I am not saying that I won’t read or write about them, it’s not that. It’s just that I read a lot of books that are not ARCs and it seems like I can’t find the time to speak about them, too. And it’s not just about the time… it’s that sometimes it’s really hard for me to speak about the things that I love the most, but, well that’s not right.
And so I was hoping to make some changes here and there, to make this little virtual space a little more like me but… not only I failed it, because all of that is just an idea, and I haven’t take a single step forward to make it real, but I have disappeared completely from the blog community. I wasn’t present here, I didn’t visit your blogs and I wasn’t present on Twitter, neither.
The thing is, I had a hard time at work because I did a lot of longer schedule, and when I have some days off I don’t spend them at home, never, so when I am not at work I have to catch up with house chores, reading and things to do and so on… and so the blog wasn’t a priority anymore, and then it went downhill, because I couldn’t find the energy to come back, because all the times I thought about coming back I was feeling it like an obligation and… no, just no. This blog can’t be an obligation, speaking about the things that I love can’t be an obligation because, well, it’s fun! I am a blogger because I love to be a blogger, but without the love, when all that I was feeling was duty and obligation… well, it just didn’t feel right to me. I know that it’s quite a confused explanation, but I think that you can understand what I am trying to say here, right?
So yeah, I failed but I am here again! I haven’t a lot of free time, that’s true, but I am excited again to be back on track! I am looking forward to visiting all of your blogs, and catch up on what I have missed. I am looking forward to writing and share with you my reading and maybe even something more. I am looking forward to being, again, an active member of the blog community. So here I am!
I have missed a lot and I have a lot to catch up, but I would manage it! And in the next days, you would find some new contents here, too. Isn’t it great? I am dying to share with you my January’s reading, even if we are almost at the end of February (so I am late, nothing new here!) and I have a ton of books to share with you! In the next days I would post my recap for the last month and a review… would I be more faithful to my need of changing or would I go back to habit and choose an ARCs for my comeback?
I am so happy to be here again, and I have missed you all, people!
