So this blogging thing...

After trying multiple times over the past year to get back into reading and blogging, nothing has worked. So instead of making myself read and blog when it didn't feel right, it wasn't fun anymore, and it felt like a chore, I stopped. No long "I'm going away and maybe one day I'll be back" post, because even that felt forced. I didn't log onto blogger, I didn't check out the new galleys on NetGalley, I hardly checked my blog email, and I changed a lot of stuff on my twitter to focus less on books and writing to be more about music and friends. It felt great to take that load off my shoulders. It felt great to dive even deeper into my other love, music. It felt great to get some of the other parts of my life figured out without feeling like I needed to blog and read. Since January 1st I've only read maybe 6 or 7 books. I've picked up about 25 this year but ended up reshelving most of them as they just weren't working for me at the moment.

But, now I find myself staring at my bookshelf thinking about all the great stories I have just waiting to be opened and read. I find myself coming up with new ideas for posts, or wanting to participate in Top Ten Tuesday again. So now is the time I make my way back onto my blog.
There will be some changes that will take some time to get all straightened out, but they are good changes. I will be branching out from just reviewing YA as I read so much more than just YA now. And, as I mentioned before, I love music. It's a huge part of my life. My 3 biggest loves in life are reading, writing, and music. I know I started doing Music Monday posts, but I think I might start doing more music posts. Maybe not. I might just put together really epic Music Monday posts and leave it at that. See? Like I said, I have some details to work out. But I am excited to get back to blogging.

So let's do this :)
