I have been not reading and not posting and not doing much here. That is very obvious.
I lost my love for this and I lost, in the process, my love of reading. It was a chore and a difficult one at that. I never like reviewing and I never thought I was good at it. Really I just wanted to reach out and find people who wanted to talk about books and an easy way to record what I was reading.
I got caught up in followers and social media and spent too much time worrying about the site and not enough time worrying about me.
It never got me followers. It never got me people willing to dialogue. It did get me stress and feelings of failure.
So I walked away from all of it, the site, the reading, the social media.
I have been thinking about this for quite a long time now. And when I realized that Armchair BEA was coming up and I didn’t sign up to help or even to participate I realized it was time to shake things up.
So if you are still reading, there is a new site coming. It will hopefully explain what I have been doing for the last 10 months and what I am focused on now. In addition to reading for love not money.
