Yes, that's right, this blog is not dead. -OK, it has seemed dead, there's no doubt about that. I haven't posted since September 2012, and there has been no word from me on Twitter or Facebook about the status of the blog.
I actually didn't plan on taking a break from blogging. I was feeling pretty good about it when last I posted, and I felt like I could continue blogging regularly for the foreseeable future. Yes, I was very positive and upbeat about my blogging future...then life happened...
I will not go into much detail, I prefer to talk face to face about things like this. And even though I do share some things with people online, it's not something I think I'll ever get really comfortable with.
The gist of it is that I've had to move, been without internet for nearly two months, and have had a lot of things I have been forced to spend a lot of time thinking about. (No health issues by the way, so you don't have to worry about me.) The way my brain works, means I've really been distracted, and haven't even been able to concentrate on reading, much less blogging.
I'm an optimist though, so in my mind I was always going to get back to blogging "next week", so I didn't really feel the need to blog about my unplanned hiatus. -Yeah, not really good at getting things done at once instead of procrastinating.
Anyway, I'm now back to reading, and feel ready to start blogging again. How much blogging I'll get done I don't know, but I will probably post several times a week. I have three reviews and an article/opinion piece planned for the coming week.
A side effect of not being able to read much is that I am really behind on my reading. If you have sent me an ARC I will get to it, and review it. And I'm sorry for not giving you a heads-up about why everything has been delayed.
I also am way behind on e-mails. I subscribe to a lot of newsletters, and get on average over 100 e-mails a day. I'm not going to be able to catch up with any e-mail people have sent me while I've been away anytime soon, so if you have tried to contact me, please try again.
So there you have it. The short version of why the blog has been on hiatus. It's back now, and I hope you'll follow my future adventures in blogging.
