It’s time for a decision. A very difficult one, but necessary.
I love reading, and I love spreading my love of books and discussing the wonderful literary worlds, but finding and taking the time to properly share that love here on the blog is somehow not happening. I have no real idea why.
I love reading about books and have a thousand ideas about what I’d like to discuss on the blog, but for some reason, weeks pass and nothing appears. I plan and arrange and think, and then the second I sit down in front of a blank post page: nothing. There’s no doubt that a lot of it comes from the fact that I write and sit in front of computer all day for work, and that my amount of both physical and mental freedom and energy is considerably less today than it was when I decided to start this second blog. But I just can’t get past the fact that I so want this, and yet somehow don’t manage to do the actual writing.
I’ve wondered and discussed the future of blogging in my life with both myself and the Hubby. I never wondered about the books – they are always there even if I’m not feeling too inspired 🙂
This is nothing new. Anyone who follows either this blog or my other Danish blog will know that calling my blogging “irregular” or “sporadic” is being extremely kind. It’s probably more correct to call it “almost non-existent”, and that’s still being pretty nice about it.
Something has to happen. Something has to give. And no matter how much I wish it were different, I have to be honest with myself and realise that I’m at a point in my life where there is just not a whole lot of space and energy for running two blogs and actually enjoying it.
So, thought it breaks my heart to have to write this, for now – and for an undetermined amount of time – I have to close down “The Girl Who Loved to Read”.
Probably, no one will much notice as there’s been so little activity for so long. However, if you are one the very lovely and amazing people who might care just a little, my plan (and I say this with some trepidation) is to go back to focusing on my main blog Twenty Years From Now, so hopefully, you can still come visit me when I do my “sporadic” blogging over there.
As some of you might know, that blog is focused primarily on my experience with living abroad and is in Danish, but I plan to incorporate more writings about the beloved books over there and implement some things that would let my international readers join in as well. I won’t give up entirely yet, so I hope that those of you who haven’t given up entirely on me yet either will come by Twenty Years From Now and say hi.
Thank you all SO much for reading and following and commenting! You’re what has made this whole thing fun and worth and so hard to let go, and I hope to still see you around – I definitely haven’t lost any interest in following you all, so I’ll continue to pop around and say hi wherever you are. See you!
