Life and blog update (yet again)

blog update february 2022

Hi everyone! It’s me again. After yet another longer-than-planned break from posting, I finally managed to drag my behind back to this blog. I know I said in September that I was hoping to return to posting a bit more often. And for a few weeks, I seemed to be doing just that. But than my little one started teething and right after that, she went through a sleep regression. So yeah, no sleep for baby and no sleep for mommy either.

As a result, I’ve been exhausted (counting down until baby’s naptime so I can sleep is okay, right?). And reading just hasn’t been on my mind at all. That has led me to realize that it’ll probably be quite some time before I can return to my old routine of reading for an hour before bed every night.

I’ve also kinda lost interest in reading…? I mean, I still add books to my TBR list on Goodreads, but I can’t be bothered to actually pick up a book and read. Maybe it’s just because I’m so tired, though. It might also be a bit of a genre burn-out. These last couple of years, I’ve mainly been reading YA fantasy novels. And I think I’ve outgrown them. Or maybe the pandemic has dampened my enthousiasm for these high-stakes save-the-world kinda stories? I think I’d rather read some cozy mystery or romance these days.

Maybe I’m just trying to get settled in my new role as a parent? Because one of my other hobbies/interests used to be watching bike races, and I’m not in the mood for that either. Gah, I don’t know…

Switching things up

Anyway, since it’s a bit wasteful to have this website up and running without posting anything, I’ve been thinking about what to do with it. I do want to keep my little corner of the internet, but I’m considering changing this space from a pure book blog to more of a general life blog.

I know the Google algorithm will probably hate that because it doesn’t focus on one topic, but hey, so be it. (Maybe I should tell Google this website focuses on ME, hah!)

Some examples of content I could write about:

  • Computer games
  • Movies and TV shows
  • The struggle with getting good at guitar playing
  • My crochet adventures (literally just bought some yarn and hooks last week!)
  • Fascinating *ahem* stories about life with a baby
  • And of course whatever books I happen to read

Let me know what you think about this idea. I know some of you are only here to read about books and won’t like this change. I totally understand and respect that. But I can feel my fingers itch to write more and this blog seems like the best way to do that. And since my life doesn’t revolve around books anymore, I have to find other topics to write about.

Oh, and I still have to work on that blog design make-over I mentioned back in September. Woops, mom brain!

Aaaaaanyway! Thank you for reading and let me know in the comments what you think. Hopefully, I’ll see you soon in another post!
