Blog Update

Hello all!

You may have noticed that my blog posting has become quite sporadic lately. There are many reasons for this. Many of you know that I am a high-school English teacher. This school year has been a challenge to say the least. We’ve been in school full-time for four weeks so far and it has definitely been a unique time. It’s taking a lot of my energy just to get through a single day. In fact, I’m pulling back on how many books I read a month because something in my day has to give. I’m also a mom to a vibrant and brilliant and high-energy nine-year old. I need to give her my time once I get home from a long day of work.

In addition to my very busy life, I am finding that reading is a struggle for me now. Our world has become something I don’t recognize anymore. I feel the call to blog less, be on social media less, and spend as much time with my family as possible. Blogging and reading and social media-ing has been great fun, but it is time to focus more on my family and less on fictional and curated worlds.

So, what can you expect from me in the future?

I’ll post a post when I can. I’ll try to review all the books I read, but I’m definitely not going to be reading as often as I once did. And, I’ll join a street team when I feel the call to do so, but I’m stepping down from most of those, too. It’s time for me to step back a bit on all fronts.

I hope you can understand my current position, and I hope you still read my posts from time to time when they do post. Thank you for being a loyal supporter!

  1. I completely understand ❤ I had to give up my 10 year online teaching job last year because between between between family, health, and the general state of the world, I couldn’t do it all. I only say that because my prayers are especially with all the teachers right now. Wishing you the best!

  2. God bless you and your family. Right now it’s a difficult time for many and we have to do what we need to do. Sounds to me like you have your priorities straight and we will always be around if you need us for prayer and support.

  3. I understand completely!! I have no doubt it was a difficult decision and I know I will continue to look for your posts 🙂 Good luck teaching this year, I used to teach and over the last few years I have said I couldn’t go back to a classroom. I just can’t see it. I still homeschool my son, but he will graduate next year and this chapter will close as well. Prayers for a good and healthy school year.

  4. You’re not alone there are so many going through this right now. Fortunately I feel myself coming out of it and so I’m working on returning to blogging, but I don’t think I can even return at the capacity I once was at. You have to take care of you and your family first. Love you friend and praying for you ❤
