This has been happening to me off and on for my entire blogging career. I sometimes wonder if it wouldn't be better for me to stop blogging entirely, but I always talk myself out of it. I do enjoy talking about books and interacting with other bloggers, but lately it has felt like a chore. I think part of this is because my numbers where there reading wise at the start of the year, but quality-wise I am lacking all around. There are some books that I have loved, but mostly I have read a lot of books that are just okay. As this trend has continued, I have started to feel more apathetic about everything. And, I am having a hard time concentrating on one book. Right now I am reading Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin, listening to American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and rereading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I feel like I am making little to no progress in any of them despite enjoying all of them.
So, I have been thinking lately. For the first part of this year, I have been following along with all the changes that Amanda has been making to her blogging experience, and I sort of agree with her. This blog has never really been a personal blog. I chat about life-stuff once in a while, but it is predominately a book review blog. I am starting to think that I need to branch out in life a bit more. I was trying new things at the beginning of the year, but at this point I am back to the same-ole-same, and it is starting to wear on me. The things I normally enjoy doing are become a chore because it is all I seem to do. There is obviously a problem there... I am having that problem with books. I feel like I read the same thing over and over again.
I obviously need to make some changes... Now to decide what they will be!
