Nothing going on here... as you were...

General Apology and a Question.

 Sunday, 14 March 2010

Howdy to people who may actually still be reading my blog (I know there's not many of you).
This is a post just to say I'm sorry for my lack of posting and that I'm seriously considering whether it's worth continuing with this book blog.

I know that I'm terribly irregular with my posts and that I've only posted one review since I started blogging in January. This is partly because I don't like my own review style as it varies a lot from book to book and they tend to take so long for me to write that I haven't got the time to write proper sized reviews for all the books I've read so far this year (I'm getting on for 50 books already). The other part of my inconsistency is that I'm a student at university and therefore I don't have the time or money to be buying new books all the time or keeping up with all the new YA books online. My time management is so poor that I have difficulty getting all my university work done let alone trying to plan and write blog posts (you should see the drama I'm going through trying to write one measly 1500 word essay- having a wisdom tooth out would be easier and less painful!).

So I'm wondering if there is any point in my keeping this blog going any longer since I don't post reviews even though I'm reading books, I very rarely do posts for the weekly memes and I'm certainly not coming out with any  original posts of an amusing nature. What's the point? I'm bringing nothing to the book blogging community so I may as well remove myself and keep my ramblings on my LibraryThing thread where I don't feel under pressure to review the books I read in a manner that's comprehensible or useful to others. I'm sorry but I just can't do it.

What do I do? Any opinions or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

It would be sad if you quit blogging but you have to do what's best for you. I remember what it was like being in university and I've always had issues with time management. If I were still in school I don't think I'd be able to keep up with a blog. I'm amazed that you've been able to read so many books this year. I had very little pleasure reading time when I had to study as well. I wish you all the best as you continue your education. Hopefully you will be able to continue blogging too at some point. If you still wanted to keep up with reviewing books maybe it would help if you had a form so that the reviews would be uniform and quicker to do? Good luck with whatever you decide.
