Sadly . . . I've Decided.

Hey everyone. Long time no post, right?

I'm sorry about it. I feel like I've left everyone down.

I've written this post to announce something. And that is that, after much thought, I have decided to take a break from blogging indefinitely. I definitely did not want it to come to this, but it has. I wish I could keep posting, but I've tried, and it just hasn't worked out. I feel this is my only option right now if I want to someday (soon hopefully) to start Reading Keeps You Sane up again.

I wish I could tell you why, but the internet is too big of a place to put something private up, so I can't. If you want a better reason, and you know who you are, just email me. I'll be happy to let you know why.

I hate to do this weeks before the two year anniversary of my blog, but it's what it's come to.

So hopefully I can get back to how it was, and become a part of this wonderful community again.

Thanks to my faithful readers, I'm sorry I've let you down.

  2. As someone who has blogged (not just books) for over ten years, on and off, I can tell you from experience that there are more important things than blogging and it sounds like you've run up against one of those. Take the time you need and eventually you may feel like it's time to come back. Take care, and be well!

  3. You haven't let anyone down at all. Having a blog is a huge commitment and you've managed to have a great one for almost two years. Sometimes, real life just gets in the way. I'll miss your posts, but I can definitely understand your decision. Hope things get better!

  7. I'm sorry to hear that you're giving up blogging for now, but you feelings and private life is much more important than blogging. The community will still be here if you decide to come back :)

  8. Sometimes a break is needed. After all, real life is more important.

  15. I completely understand your decision. When I got into this I never realized it would be this much of a commitment. Be ok with your decision to stop. It's what you need now.

    Good luck.

  17. Sometimes we have to put things on hold to figure our lives out, or to prioritize or something. Clearly, I don't know the reason why you are taking a hiatus, but I do know that I, and the rest of the blogging community will be there for you when you come back. I certainly do not feel let down, but I do eagerly await your return, and hope you will be able to do what you need to do to be happy!

    I'm always on twitter (@booksandwine) so if ever you need a book blogger to talk to, don't hesitate to tweet!! I know I never really talked to you as a blogger, but it's never too late to be there for someone, even a complete stranger. :-)

  19. You haven't let anyone down! Sometimes life happens and we all need to step back for awhile to deal with things. I know we'll all miss you on here, but some things are more important. Go, do good and feel better about everything. Much love and hoping you'll return in the future!

  24. We will all definitely miss you and we understand that life has to come first. It sounds like you are just in a situation where you have to do what is best for you right now and we all have been there. Be proud of the blog you made and hopefully you'll be able to come back to it someday. I also wanted you to know that this post is very professional, which was probably hard to pull off when you are upset by this decision. My heart goes out to you.

  26. I just came across your blog, so you should know that you will still be present in the blogosphere even while you take your break. I really enjoy your work and look forward to hopefully reading more from you someday. I hope that whatever you're up to now is working out and is resolved soon. You do great work and you've clearly already made an impact! No worries, your decision is understandable and your dedication to your readers is admirable. Best of luck in wherever life takes you next! Thank you :)
