I'm Back!

Argh, I'm really sorry to have disappeared on you all for so long. I could come up with some fancy excuse like I’ve had amoebic dysentery or something, but that would be a lie. In truth, I just got fed up with Blogger after that incident several weeks ago where it erased my posts and comments for a few days. It was annoying to me especially that something I do for fun, such as blogging, was being ruined by the stupid interwebs. And then also I realized that I had started taking this all a bit too seriously seeing as how it does not provide me any sort of income whatsoever (though I seriously do love blogging and talking about books in general but I would love it more if I was a rich person and didn't have to concern myself with silly things such as money). My job was getting more intense and so I had to make the choice to focus more on that, even though I despise my job.

So I decided weeks ago to take a little bit of time away from the blogosphere (sorry I didn't inform you all). At first it was just going to be a couple days, but then I realized that my nights were getting very very busy and when I wanted to come back to Blogger I simply didn’t have the time. Then when I did have the time my creative mind wasn’t really flowing to come up with good posts or reviews for you all to enjoy. Did someone say Catch 22?

All in all, I was just spent. But, as the title indicates, I’m back now. And even though I wasn’t posting these last few weeks, I WAS definitely reading. But now I owe you all who knows how many reviews. One day (one day!) I’ll be caught up. I predict around 2017…

In conclusion: hope you missed me; I missed you all; I’m back.

You were definitely missed and I so so feel you on the blogger frustration (esp now, when I hear folks can't follow or comment on blogs!). I hope the time off was restful -- I know I need a break now and then when I get too serious about (what should be) a fun hobby. Can't wait to see your reviews, should you feel like doing them! :)

Thanks Audra!

And uh oh, there’s MORE Blogger trouble?

I know, right? Either blogger is acting up again, or it's something about Google Friends Connect -- I'm unsure. :/

Phew! Well I am glad you're back! Yes, i was very frustrated too. I didn't loose any posts but i spent about an hour commenting on other blogs only to have them all disappear!

hooray! I'm happy you're back! I had discovered your blog just before Bloggerpocalypse happened. It was like finding a good thing then having it snatched away from you.

@W2W, yeah since I was participating in 2 blog hops at the time all my comments on those other blogs got lost as well :(

@booklush, oh that's so kind. Thank you!
