A Word to my "Sponsors"

...or readers, or friends, or folks who stumble upon this URL...
Anyhoo...
Basically, I haven't been the best blogger, and I think I lost a lot of ground and stamina, going from posting at least once a day to...hardly at all.
I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted to keep blogging or what the future of this site would be, and I let that kind of freak me out. The bottom line is, I turned into a bit of a drama queen with all the uncertainties and insecurities and ETC ETC.
But reading and having literary discussions with you guys has been one of the big highlights of the past year, and I'd be insane to give that up. Sure, it kinda sucks to write a post that you think is super cool, that ends up not getting a lot of feedback. But I can't do anything about that. All I can do is comment on other blogs and do my share, and love this site.
And I do.
We're all here because we're passionate about literature, and we love talking books. There are some sites I visit every day because it's become part of my routine, like, "ohh, I need to check so-and-so's site--I wonder what they've read recently."

So thanks for keeping this site afloat, and thanks for sticking around!
I love you all - now have a cookie on me! Oh, and if you've read Saving Francesca or Jellicoe Road recently, have a cookie AND a brownie!

I know it can get a bit depressing - regarding lack of comments, but know that there are a ton of people reading that post which is what really matters. I have noticed that you have not been around as much and I just put it down to being on the busy side. Well missy I can't imagine the blogoshpere without you so hang in there hun, if anything if your feeling a bit down email me, I'm always here, and we can have a good mope together :) * hugs*

Honey, even if you decided to only check in once a month or so, I'd still follow you because I just love your blog! I have a problem with obsessing over posting on my blog sometimes, but I keep trying to remind myself that it's a hobby, and not as important as real life, no matter how much I love it. I do agree though...literary discussions rock!

I'm glad you decided to continue with your blog. I love it. Such a fun blog.

Oh, and I totally bought Jellicoe Road after I read your review of it. I cannot wait to start it.
Hope you have a great week :D

You aren’t the only one feeling this way. Balancing blogging and real life can get a little overwhelming. Blog when you can because I always love to read what you have to share!

Blogging can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, and you're right; when you don't get a lot of feedback, it sucks. That's undeniable. I always read your posts though, and I'm glad you are still here!

Adriana said...

We definitely all seem to feel the same way. I'm glad your still going to continue blogging. Your one of my constant go to blogs, and it's one that I will miss.
