Recapping 2018 and looking ahead to 2019

Out with the OLD: 2018
Y’all this year has been one wild ride and I feel like the last few months I’ve been on a tilt-a-whirl, spinning out of control and just hoping that when it stops I’ll be able to stand upright again.
Some really great things happened for me this year, but despite that, I sank into a major depression this fall. And I kept thinking I could pull myself out. And I kept sinking deeper, instead. Well, this past month I’ve finally started really, truly pulling out. I’m not quite standing upright but I’m getting there.
What happened for me with blogging? Well, I made the decision to fully commit to Because Reading by cancelling my domain for Fantasy is More Fun. That’s right. It’s really, 100% gone. I didn’t even save the posts… and since I also no longer have the hosting – we moved COYER to blogger when we got hacked, I also can’t even pull out those old posts. They are well and truly gone. And I’m okay with that – Because Reading is my home and I’ve never been one that felt the need to hold on to things from my past. I’m the furthest thing from a hoarder — even digitally!
In with the NEW: 2019
A big part of finally getting fully upright is participating in the things I used to really love – like blogging. To be honest, life has been so overwhelming, I haven’t missed it that much until recently. Because engaging in a community – any community – has not appealed to me. But I do think I’m ready to start reconnecting.
But let’s be realistic. I can’t go from 0 to 100 in a few days or even weeks. And I’m not going to pretend to be the same blogger I was when I disappeared this year. I’m not. But I do truly love this community and want to be a part of it again, just in a different way. Health – physical and emotional – has become and needs to remain a priority for me. So look for a bit more of those kinds of post from me.
Reading has not slipped for me at all though – yay! – just the review writing is kind of a problem for me right now. I haven’t fully figured out how I’ll be sharing all I’m reading, but I do want to share. So look for an evolution of how Berls blogs this year, but hopefully you’ll really see me here and visiting y’all again.
