Why My Blog has been Wiped Clean

“If you are not where you want to be, do not quit, instead reinvent yourself and change your habits.”Eric Thomas

Many of you may have noticed that my blog has been wiped clean and that I haven’t been posting for a long time. Apologies everyone, but I was getting busy with school, but I still felt obligated to post content. So I started turning out low-effort quality content, often emulating over people(sorry to @sylvs and everyone for trying to photograph my books *facepalm*) and it was usually unauthentic. I kept making hollow promises of how I was going to make a post every week, but I never did. Then I was stuck for a bit when I didn’t even make any content and I became unhappy with my own content. Then in one of the weekly newsletters I get, the For the Interested newsletter(curated by Josh Spector) came with a post about reinvention when you hit a plateau. I definitely needed this. So I decided to wipe all the content on my blog and start afresh. And it has honestly been liberating. Once the site admins get the blog settings working again, my blog will be looking a bit different. For now, every now and again you’ll see new content and some redesigned old posts popping up. I’m not going to make a set schedule that I can’t adhere to, just know that I will. I’ll still be commenting up a storm though :P. Thank you for everyone who’s been patient with me and here’s to turning over a new leaf!

 

Yours with the literary revelations,

Seriously it's all good I barely even noticed lol. Anyway it's good you realised that it wasn't working for you. Book blogging is all about finding your style I'm glad you're turning over a new leaf. I think it'll prove very beneficial <3

Looking forward to reading more of your posts! And take it from the person who wishes they were on this site all the time but barely is (I'm sorry), I think we can all understand the toll that life takes on us, and how sometimes it can feel like all you do is eat, sleep and go to school. Take your time, and find out what kind of posting works for you, whether frequent or infrequent - you've got readers here!
