Hello friends and fellow book lovers! To say that this year has been crazy would be an understatement. After 2020, it didn’t seem like things could get any worse, but truly, things have gotten worse. In particular, I’ve really been struggling when it comes to trying to balance everything I have to do and want to do. While it might not seem like a lot for some, 2021 has been an odd year for me.
Starting things off, we were all still wearing masks at my job which only just recently came off within the last six months. Even so, COVID has yet to go away and currently, it’s wreaking havoc on my job. In particular, I knew a few people who are sick and have been out for weeks at this point. However, it’s put a lot more on my plate than I wanted so my book blogging fell to the wayside.
In addition to work mostly taking over, I’m also trying as much as I can to keep up with my freelance writing, reading and spending time with my boyfriend. Those few small pleasures obviously take precedent when I have free time and then everything seems to fall through the cracks.
Then things only seem to pile up and then I never get caught up. As for how this relates to my blog, I end up feeling immense guilt for not posting or for keeping to my normal schedule. That’s not to say that I don’t want to write or don’t have ideas, but rather I don’t feel motivated at the right times. It’s incredibly frustrating as I have so much I want to talk about but never find the right moments to say it.
With that being said, I don’t know what I want to do with my blog. I don’t know if I should just throw my schedule out the window and post when I want, go on hiatus or just completely give up. Honestly if anyone has any tips, tricks or ideas to help, I’d love to know. Until then, I don’t know what’s going to happen with my blog.
