My Mini-Vacation Comes To A Close

Posted March 9, 2015 by Marsha in This one's a Keeper / 3 Comments

blue eyesThis past week my son was up in Boston for the PAX-East Convention/Event.  And I got to stay home for six glorious days totally on my own.  Total Freedom – and it’s gonna be back to life as usual in about 22 hours.  So… I’m doing this post which is kind of an odd one perhaps.  But I’m going to be brave and surge ahead with it.

I’ve been working very steadily on this blog for the last couple months.  It’s shaping up into something that I can be proud of, and I certainly am enjoying the community.  I have a lot of things to do still – but I no longer feel quite as overwhelmed as I did on January 2, 2015 when I made the decision to get back to what I loved doing – reading books and talking about them.  I even branched out and made a new blog totally about my love of Paranormal novels, movies and television series.  Haunted Bookshelf.  That is a work very much in process, but I don’t care if it takes months to get it just where I want it – it’s a labor of love for something I truly enjoy, so time isn’t all that important.

I’ve learned a lot in two months.  NetGalley.  Twitter.  Facebook Page.  Yet, there are moments when I look at my handwritten list of things I still need to do – like yesterday – that I heave a huge sigh and wonder if I’ll ever be finished.  And the truth is that I probably won’t because new things are constantly becoming a part of my life now.  As long as it’s fun, then I don’t mind the learning process.

I’m still trying to find my own personal “voice” for this blog.  It’s still early stages so I know it will eventually all come together.

I’d like to take this moment to thank those folks who have taken the time to stop and comment – whether it was on a meme or just about a review I did.  I appreciate the time, I really do.

  1. LOL no your list will never be done 😉 My blog-i-versary is the day before yours. I just turned 3 and my to do list for the blog is still a mile long but you nailed it. Keep it fun and it’s really not too bad. Little by little you’ll find your niche and your blog voice 😀

    I am getting braver every single day – and that in itself is totally fun. 🙂

    Anna, remember a blog post of yours about love n women over 30? Well, that’s been on my mind for the longest time now – and I believe I’m about to branch out once again. That post really put a fire under my arse… in a good way. lol

    Anyway. 🙂 Thanks for the comment and I totally agree it will all fall into place and as long as I keep it fun for me… in the end that’s the most important part. Because why would I put so much work..and book blogging is work… into something that wasn’t fun for me?!

      Anna, if you ever have the time please check out Romance Is Ageless and this post:

      I finally lit that spark into a bonfire. 🙂 It is totally hours old – but since you were the inspiration behind this decision thought I’d let you (and anyone else reading) know about it’s birth.
