Book Blogger Confessions #2


Book Blogger Confessions is a meme hosted by Tiger from All Consuming Books and Karen from For What It's Worth Reviews to discuss issues unique to book bloggers.  To find out details, click HERE.

Q. Have you ever had reading/blogging slumps? How do you work through them or work around them?

A: Ironically, I'm sort of in one now.  And, I've sort of been in it for about a month now.  I won't go into all the reasons I'm in one, but basically it's just a lot of real life stuff that I have to take care of and I feel like when I do have time to read, blog or visit other blogs I either watch TV, surf the net or play the Sims2.

One way I thought I'd try to work through this slump is by having a Read-a-Thon.  New Year's weekend we usually don't do anything, so I did one then, but I only got 2 books read.  So, that's one way maybe other bloggers can get out of their slump.  Join a reading challenge.

Another way I am trying to work through this is that I know that many bloggers have had this problem, so I know I'm not alone.  Also, I just have to tell myself that it's not the end of the world.  It's my blog and when I can read and review, I will.  This book blog is supposed to be a fun and creative outlet and I have to remember that!

OMG! How addicting is Sims2?! I'm always playing it and trying to build myself the perfect life. LOL

In order to avoid slumps, I have a strict rule about taking the weekends off from blogging, it has helped a lot. But little vaca are nice too. :)

You're doing a fantastic job with you blog, Pam. It's a place I really enjoy visiting. Thank you.

I took Nov/Dec off and it was totally liberating. The sky did not fall!! I found things to do and I didn't miss blogging at all.
I still talked about books on twitter and caught up in visiting a view blogs I had been missing.
I came back to it with a great attitude and refreshed. My reading has improved too. I'm doing it for fun again!

You made a key point..we do this because we love to read and blog...this slump will pass. Try reading just to read and walk away from the blog for a week. Thanks for sharing...it helps others realize they are not alone.

I love Sims 2 too! I've stopped playing it because it totally sucks me in for hours on end. Don't stress it. Take the time you need to take of care of your IRL stuff and everything else will fall into place. =)
