Hey guys. Well, I have an update, but don’t really know where to start. To be honest, I’ve been putting this off because I was hoping things would have gotten far better by now, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
I’ve mentioned several times before about my hiatus and health being problematic with posting, well I finally have an update for you all about it. Unfortunately, and this brings about something I really wish I didn’t have to do, my health hasn’t gotten any better. It’s not so much a case of hibernating due to the humidity anymore because it’s Autumn here now, but it’s more a case of recovering from a relapse with my medical condition.
Add onto that other things going on in my life lately and my desire to keep up with BA has kind of fizzled. Most days I do struggle to read and it has nothing to do with wanting or not wanting to read, so there’s one major problem right there. Even without reading I could come up with content if my health wasn’t in the way, so add those two things together and it’s already rocky.
Now this isn’t a ‘hey, I’m closing this place down‘ sort of announcement. This is more a ‘hey, I’m having a proper break‘ kind of one. I don’t plan on attempting to put up quick posts like book trailers, I need to take some real time away from BA. And I apologise sincerely for the lack of content too. I actually planned safe guards in case my health went south, but those safe guards didn’t work out and now we’re content-less.
BA is something I’ve been attempting to work on since my relapse in small doses even when I keep telling myself, and others, I’m taking a break. Even after giving up my book club and doing nothing with my writing group, I still found myself making notes for BA and sneaking online to have at least one regular post. I don’t know if it’s addiction or stubborness or something else entirely, but I know I can’t do it anymore.
So, in a nutshell, I will be back. BA isn’t disappearing or closing down at all, it will remain here and when things are better both healthwise and lifewise I will be posting here quite often. I might pop into my personal blog from time to time, but I doubt it. I think I need to take a break from that too and will only be posting there when I find fun YouTube clips (it’s what I’ve been reduced to) and for ME/CFS Awareness Week.
For those taking part in the challenges, please keep it up, those Mr Linkies aren’t going anywhere. I created those challenges for everyone to enjoy and, regardless of my activity, they will continue to be there. I will be tempting to get the badges out within the next week, but I can’t make any promises. Getting to emails for me has been pretty hit and miss over the last few months, but I have kept note of who needs the badges.
I hope you’re all having fun with them to, no matter how your progress is going, and discovering some great new reads. In the end, isn’t that the most important thing about reading challenges? To discover something new and to enjoy them?
Thank you to everyone who has continued to stop by, share, and kept in contact. Until next time, have fun uncovering and exploring new worlds.
