Busy Blogger Explanation

I have not been posting very actively. Why? Like a lot of bloggers, I’m going to school. It’s a long story, and I’m sure you might not actually care (not because you’re cold and uncaring, I’m just not sure you want the details), but I’m back in college after taking a long time off. When I enrolled for this semester, I was kind of in an anxious daze and ended up with an odd schedule. I know I’d be busy anyway, but I am in two short classes, which means a LOT of content is smashed into a shorter amount of time. I regret everything, haha.

Because of all of this, I haven’t really been great at writing reviews. I’ve still been reading. I’ve been reading for pleasure more than I probably should with schoolwork to worry about. Unfortunately, my review writing takes longer. I need to learn how to whip them out quickly.

I also haven’t been great at commenting, and a lot of times that’s because I feel weird commenting if I don’t have any newer posts worth commenting on. So many bloggers comment back, and sometimes when I comment and I haven’t posted I want to be like “Eh, don’t go to my blog!” I am always thankful when people do visit my blog, but I never want people to feel like they have to come up with a comment on something that is kind of lame and might not deserve one. So, please don’t ever feel like you have to comment on anything in return, though I do appreciate all the comments I receive (that aren’t spam, of course!).

Hopefully I will be able to find a better balance soon! I’d like to find a way to use productivity in one area to procrastinate for other areas, like use the blog to procrastinate for school (which is actually what I’m doing as I type this, oops), but usually I end up reading or on tumblr and not wanting to translate my feelings into reviews. Right now, I’m about halfway through my shortest class (it’s about a month, only on Saturdays with a lot more writing than I expected), and I’m hoping once it’s knocked out, I’ll be able to convince myself to blog more!

Basically, I just wanted to explain, in case anyone was wondering! If I’ve missed any posts you think I should take a look at, feel free to leave a link!

  1. I’ve been missing you! 😦 School is tough for me right now so I’m not blogging or reading as much as I’d like to, but I’m hoping to find a balance soon. Good luck with your studies and I’ll anxiously be awaiting your full arrival!

    • School is such a zapper 😦 Sometimes after school stuff I just want mindless activities and thinking for blogging is too much! Hopefully we will both figure it out! Thank you!! ❤

  2. Life happens and it’s awesome that you are focusing on school!! I miss reading your reviews more frequently, but I know how it goes!! 🙂 At least the holidays are coming which hopefully means less school time, right? haha! 🙂 Sending you lots of good vibes!!
