Hello lovely readers (followers and visitors)! I have missed blogging, reading your comments, checking up on your reading challenges, and visiting your blogs. Blogging isn’t the be all and end all, I know that, but it’s definitely an addictive hobby. I’ve been reading pretty consistently for several weeks now on top of having my other hobbies being limited, so I think it’s about time to expand my hobbies again. With blogging… Because it’s not an addiction. No. It isn’t.
Seriously though, I’m starting to post at least once a fortnight on my personal/writing blog, and would like to do so here. I have lost count of the amount of reviews I have lying around in draft mode. I would like to finally edit them and then post them all up.
There’s also some other posts I have ready to go. I’m not going to be resuming my full posting schedule, and with the absence of contributors, it’s not exactly going to be a posting free-for-all. This is fine with me as I believe there needs to be an adjustment, especially for me, where I’m more relaxed. I would still like to begin posting at least once a fortnight with reviews and a more personal touch to a fortnightly posting. Think of it as an opinion based post about various bookish subjects. I felt the need to type these up sporadically and found I rather enjoyed taking the focus off the act of reviewing and analysing stories.
That’s where I’m at. I want to stipulate as well, just because I’m being more relaxed about it all, doesn’t mean I’m not just as passionate about it, won’t be adhering to some sort of schedule, and won’t be as professional with it as I was with reviews, interviews, and any other form of interaction with other bloggers, authors, and publishers. I just need to focus my energy on other areas of my life, you know how it is.
I’ll be bringing back book trailers as well, once a week, so now that’s three posts at least once a fortnight for you all to enjoy. I think that’s a good start, don’t you?
Last, but not least, if you’d like to contribute or join in, drop me a line. You can do so by commenting here, emailing me at BookishArdour [at] gmail [dot] com or visiting the application post.
