I know I've been missing around the book blogosphere and I want to explain why. I've had several surgeries this year and am finally finished with it all. (YAY!) My last surgery was at the end of June and during my recuperation time, I read like crazy. I'm not sure if this is linked to my reading struggles now but I have had such a difficult time since July when it comes to trying to get into a good book. This is one of the few reasons as to why I haven't been blogging. I've also had some issues with someone that was close to me when it came to taking content that I had originally posted. (I wish not to get into this but it is part of my story). During all of this mess, I started thinking about why I think so highly of my blog.
I've always loved reading since I was young and struggled with not only finding good books to read, but others who shared a reading interest like mine. When I was introduced into the book blogging world I was amazed by what I had been missing. Because of this and the fact that I have been struggling with my job status, I fully devoted myself to Uniquely Moi Books. This summer, when the events came into play about my content, it made me sit back and think long and hard as to why it bothered me and why I put so much into my blog.
I've come to realize that the time I spent with my blog was to replace the unhappiness with my job and I knew that this needed to change. I was stuck and used my blog as an outlet. I don't plan to quit blogging at all so this is not a goodbye! My first reason that I had stopped posting was because I was angry with the content mess. It continued because my dad had a boulder fall on him in August and I've had to take care of him while he recuperates. (He is doing good by the way). The last and now main reason as to why I haven't been posting is because I started going back to school in late August. I am majoring in Elementary Education and am doing great so far but still have a long way ahead of me. I feel like I have much to contribute to the world and teaching is the best place to go with it.
I've finally been able to fit in a bit of free time to read and I have found myself still struggling to get into a book. Everything I try and read ends up becoming very predictable or doesn't seem to hold my interest. The whole point of me starting a book blog in the first place was to share amazing books that I have read. I don't want to clog up my blog with promo posts, although they are informative, it is not my opinion if it is not in a review. Feel free to offer advice on my reading struggles because this is something that really bothers me and it's been a bit since I can sit down and read an entire book and not find it predictable or not interesting. I miss all of you and hope to work through all of this soon. Thank you all so much for taking interest in Uniquely Moi Books.
