Happy Sunday Everyone! And welcome to the Sunday Salon —
This week I thought I would discuss my current reading habits – well they have been terrible, no other way to say it. I just got a new job at work, which of course means more of the work to do so I can “pull my weight” — so I’ve left myself with very little time to read/review/etc.. I have been “trying” to keep up with posting and letting you guys know what I’m up to and reading – but I have NEVER taken so long to read a book. I think I’m going on 2 weeks with my current book and not done still!! The sad thing is I really, really love the book and the writer – it’s just – i can’t find the time to finish it..
Yesterday, in lieu of all of this – I took some time yesterday to prioritize my TBR list and make some new goals for the blog and try and get caught up on reviews. I made some awesome headway and really feel like I’m over my hump and can get back to what I love most – reading! I also got 2 reviews done –wow! So now i’m pumped up and excited to get this going again —
Share– have any of you gone through a “slump” with reading and blogging? Had trouble making the time to actually do the reading between work, the reviews, and keeping up the blog itself? Happy to take any advice on how to manage everything – I think I got into blogging before I fully understood the time requirements, and while I don’t regret it for one second, I just need to find a way to better balance. The one thing I have discovered is the publish later feature on WordPress -so when I have time, like yesterday, I can write a few things and set them up to post, I don’t even have to remember to go back and post them – how awesome is that?? If I can do this each weekend, then through the week is enjoy other people’s blogs, comment, read, and post my stuff to Twitter and Facebook and other MiMi sites – haven’t found a way to “pre post” that stuff yet..
Anyway, I had a great and productive weekend and just wanted to gush a little bit over the “little” learning I had this weekend from WordPress and the cool new things I could do, plus my “epiphany” of how to manage things, at least for right now..
Hope you guys had a great Sunday and will have an Awesome Monday!
