Why I took a year-long gap from blogging

On 14th September this year, I started blogging again. My last blog post had been on 14th September 2014 and, if I’m honest, it was the end of a trickle of posts.

Why I stopped
There were a few reasons that I stopped blogging for a year. The biggest one being a new job. There was so much I needed to learn – I just didn’t have the brainpower to spare for reading as well.

The other reason is I was doing next to nothing aside from review posts. Don’t get me wrong, a review post is a book blogger’s bread and butter but after a while of doing almost nothing but reviews it gets a little…staid, and the joy of reading kind of gets sucked out of you when you’re trying to review to a schedule.

Essentially, it just stopped being fun.

Why I started again
I’ve started blogging again because this time I feel like I have something to say. I’m not just going to be doing reviews this time, I’ve got some plans to incorporate my other interests (baking, crochet, sewing) into my blog posts.

I’m not going to follow a schedule this time, so if you want to stay up to date with my posts you can follow my blog with Bloglovin or follow me on twitter.
