So, some of you may have noticed that I have been completely absent on my blog & Instagram. Why is that? Well, basically everything was just getting a tad overwhelming.
Firstly, if you didn’t know, I started a youtube channel, which has really affected my blogging as I was spending my spare time filming & editing videos rather than writing blog posts. So I have decided to stop doing reading vlogs except for some ReadAThons. I am also cutting down to less videos, I’m not sure how that is going to work out exactly or when I’m going to post but I will try and figure that out soon.
Next, is my job. If you didn’t know I am a Beauty Therapist and run my own salon as well as working as a seasonal lifeguard. Here in Aus, it has started warming up, so I have been back at work for over a month now. Due to the hours I work, I have less time than in recent months. Also when I do have time, I try and read and end up falling asleep as I’m up at 5 in the morning 5 days a week. So that has been affecting my reading and in consequence, affecting how often I post reviews and other posts relating to recent reading.
Next, I started a candle company! And while we are new and it’s not taking up a tonne of time, it is there and I have been spending some time brainstorming ideas and actually making the candles.
Finally is all my other commitments. I already spoke about YouTube, lifeguarding, candles & beauty therapy but besides that, I am also a Car & Truck Photographer, I am PR for the local Hospital Auxiliary, I run The Ultimate ReadAThon Guide/Calendar, I run the Facebook Group, The YA Book Nerds and I organise an International Book Exchange called, The Book Nerds Book Exchange on Facebook. Outside of that, I’m also in the process of teaching myself how to cut, polish & wax cars. So yeah, I have a lot going on and it’s really been getting a bit much.
I did have a point to this post when I started it I swear!
Anyway, so yeah, I have a lot going on which has affected my blogging. I have made some changes where I can and will hopefully be active again from now! So look forward to me posting again!
This is also for my Bookstagram. I took a break as I just wasn’t feeling like taking photos. Because I was feeling like I had to and the quality was being affected, in my opinion. So I just stopped pushing myself. Hopefully, I will get back into it now, we will see.
