Hey everyone, I haven’t been around much lately and it’s because I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the direction I want to go with my blog and I think I’ve finally decided on what I want to do for now anyway. No worries though – I’m not giving up blogging – just changing some things.
First off I’m going to be doing reviews differently. I’ve decided on separating my reviews into three sections: In a Nutshell will be a brief overview of what the book is about, Reflections will cover my thoughts and feelings on the book (hopefully brief as well), and Did I Fancy It or Not which is self explanatory.
My reasons for these changes come from a few things. I’ve got some things going on in my personal life with my mother that quite often leave me exhausted and not in the best frame of mind and my concentration for having to always have a book read and then getting a review up has waned quite a bit. I also lost my walking pal Aage in the last month and it’s hit me hard. He did have health issues but it was still here one day and gone the next and the sunshine went with him. He was a bright shining star in my days and I miss him a lot. I’ve also been having issues with my vision and reading an actual book and even my Kindle is becoming harder. Consequently I’ve been leaning towards mostly audiobooks.
So what does this mean? Well I’ll still be writing reviews but I’ll be transitioning the blog to mostly audiobooks over the next few months. There will still be certain books I’ll read – like my favorite historical fiction authors or just my favorite authors and if I can go the audio way there I will as well. You’ll still be getting lots of book reviews – just shorter ones and I’ll still post giveaway posts so that won’t change at all.
So that’s it. Nothing really major I guess. Just a different way of doing things for a while. Less pressure and for now I need that. I hope you’ll all continue to visit and read my audiobook reviews and enter giveaways and sometimes just listen to me ramble.
