I have been going back and forth on whether to restart the blog today. The fact that I’m still debating about it means that I probably am not ready to come back.
I’m still reading, but near not what I was before. My mental health at this time cannot handle the pressure of the pace I had set for myself, nor the social pressure of being a perfect blogger. I have not been doing well, and it is either step back or crash completely. I just want to read for fun for awhile (and make it through the election, whatever that might bring).
I need to take some time for myself and get my brain back together. Anyone who knows me knows that it is almost as hard for me to step away from the blog, anxiety-wise, as it is to keep it going.
However, I have some committed ARCs, so I won’t go totally away. I may try to post at least once a week, and get those out–or if I read something just FANTASTIC that I think is relevant, I’ll get it out. Maybe some recipes, as I seem to be cooking more as a creative outlet. Keep up with my social media, I’m posting there and I’ll shoot out some updates.
Thanks to all of you who are hanging with me. I’ll be back, I just need to refresh. I hope you all understand.
