The future of Lavender Lines

6 Mar


If you follow this blog, you’ll notice that I haven’t posted anything since October 16th. Almost five months. So, this post and announcement shouldn’t come as any surprise.

I’m retiring from book blogging.

There, I said it.

Up until this very moment, whenever I thought about Lavender Lines, I always thought “I’ll get back to it. Tomorrow. Or maybe next week. But I WILL get back to it.”

But I know that I won’t. I just don’t have the time or the energy or the desire to keep the blog up. I’m not reading a lot these days and I really want to get back to reading 100% for pleasure.

I may some day get this blog up and running again, but for now it will stay dormant.

    You deserve a break. I don’t know how anyone finds the energy to blog. Go read a good book. xo – a quick, cost-effective alternative to the public legal system

      Thanks Vicki,

      I’m glad I made the decision official. It’s been hanging over my head for months.

    Having the same feelings about buying and reading books. Becoming a chore, rather than a pleasure.

    Will see in a few months.

    All the best.

    I want to wail “nooo” but I also want to say “good for you”. Recognizing that something is no longer serving your needs is difficult, as is saying goodbye to something. I quit Twitter and feel so much better for it. I also find my blog goes on random un-planned hiatuses, and I’m learning to be okay with that. I hope you start reading for pleasure and maybe use some easypeasy service like GoodReads or LibraryThing so all your bloggy friends can keep stalking you (hint hint nudge nudge).
