The Reading Hedgehog is going on holiday for March and most of April, if not all of it! I am in desperate need of a break from blogging. I love this blog, but lately it has been feeling like nothing but a chore, and I even kind of want to just delete it and never think about it again. I can't remember the last time I read a book without stressing over when I needed it finished so I'd have a review to post on my blog - or even read a book without dissecting everything about it. It's not fun, and I hate my passion feeling like a chore. One that I actually find myself avoiding a lot of time.
So I need a break. I don't know how I'll feel after my two-month break. I won't delete The Reading Hedgehog, but things might be different. I need to sit back and reconsider why I'm doing it and what I can change about it. Maybe I'll put all of my book stuff on Youtube and use the blog as a place to post them. I don't know. The future of The Reading Hedgehog is, for now, uncertain.
One thing is for sure, though: I appreciate and love all of my follows and the authors who have popped onto my blog and say hi to me at their events. I will always love books and I do love blogging. My life has just taken some different turns recently, and I want something more out of it all. Hence why I created a different blog: Curves In The Road. It's not much right now, but I do love it. It's a personal blog, chronicling daily life in all of its complexities, recipes, quotes, travel, fashion - anything and everything. Including books. It's a little corner of the internet that no one will probably ever find, but that's all right. Maybe it'll grow into something more eventually.
So this is me signing off. I hope the next two months are wonderful for you all. I look forward to diving head-first into life and rethinking my blogging future. See what it can become and what it needs to stop being: a burden. I never wanted this blog to become a burden or a chore or something I just didn't want to do. And I need to figure out how to change that.
I'll be checking in periodically to talk to my followers, of course. I won't neglect you guys, and maybe you'll be able to give me some ideas. If you really want to see what I'm up to, though, come over to Curves In The Road. I would very much like that blog to turn into something more, and I hope you will join me in doing that.
I will see you in May!
