Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
Have you ever thought of quitting blogging? What made you reconsider the idea?
I came very close to it in July 2017 actually. I was just so overwhelmed by life and couldn’t keep up with my own blog, which was Fantasy is More Fun (and is still there just sitting a bit broken actually). Michelle was pretty much running the COYER Challenge on her own and I had posted maybe 6 times all year. I was ready to quit and Michelle offered to see how it would work to blog together. We both were a little hesitant about it, because we both were used to doing things our own way. But we thought we’d give it a try and I posted this final message on my blog.
It turned out to be the perfect solution – I didn’t have to stress about the design any longer, which is Michelle’s thing. And we can each post a handful of times a week (or less sometimes) and still have a fairly active blog. And since we run COYER together, giving it one home made things a bit simpler.
And I wasn’t really ready to leave – I love the connections to the book world, not to mention all of you! – so I remain grateful to her for taking me in.
