I was away this past weekend and didn't get a chance to add this to my scheduled post, so I wanted to announce this here. Yesterday was the last Book Blogger Confessions.
My co-host, Karen from For What It's Worth put it best:
When my (former) BBC co-host Tiger Holland and I started the meme, everyone was kind of afraid to say out loud that there was a downside to blogging. Or even admit that we were overwhelmed. It was something you “confessed” privately in emails only with close friends.
I’ve noticed a huge, and welcome, change this past year where we feel free to express our feelings publicly and write posts about it on our blogs. So to put it simply…Book Blogger Confessions as a meme doesn’t really seem as necessary anymore.
I want to thank everyone who has participated. I've enjoyed "meeting up with you" once a month or so and reading your opinions. Most of all I want to thank Karen, who thought enough of me to partner up with her for this meme. I have to admit, I was stunned, flattered and extremely honored when she asked me because she is a blogger that I've always thought so highly of. We've become good friends and I feel so blessed to know her. I think we're both ready to move on, hopefully to other blogging endeavors.
I know that I've been lagging in reviews and posts lately and I apologize. I guess I'm in a bit of a blogging slump, but it just seems to me that other things are taking up my time and honestly, I'm really enjoying my summer. I've been travelling a bit and I've taken up gardening. It's also been very busy at work. I'm hoping that attending Authors After Dark in Savannah will inspire me and kickstart my enthusiasm for blogging more often. I don't want to quit blogging, I just haven't felt like writing lately.
Thanks for your patience and thank you again for participating in BBC.
