I’ll be sharing highlights month-by-month and giving you a peak at what’s ahead in 2015.

Out With The Old: August 2014

Some Quick Facts:

This year I realized I was making my blog more of a job then the fun it originally started as and I swore that I would change that this year. Going on vacation I was worried about posts getting done and if I was going to be able to read enough while I was away…I was on vacation for goodness sakes I was suppose to relax and have fun. I also got stressed of my reading list and the review books/tour books I would get. This is when I realized I needed to stop doing them or only request one and only if it’s something I REALLY wanted to read. I also stopped taking review requests this year because it was just getting to out of control and I wasn’t having any more fun. I started this blog to have a place to escape from everyday things I loved coming up with stuff and writing, I might not be good at it but I have gotten so much better than when I started. I love doing this and just need to keep it fun.

Whats to Come in 2015

You will never guess whats to come in 2015….if you guess keeping it fun, you are totally CORRECT 🙂 I want to keep this fun and not have to stress about it. Yes maybe co-hosting 3 challenges isn’t a good way to keep things non-stressy but you know what that’s the reason I started doing challenges & read-a-thons because they are fun and I want FUN, damn it! No seriously I think this year I am going to keep things really light and enjoy the blog like I did when I first started. I also plan to take mini blogger breaks throughout the year meaning either a weekend, a couple days or a full week. Just to give myself a little fresher but I am one of those people that can’t take to many breaks or I love my momentum and if that happens it’s rough for me to get back into things again. So if you are like me and want to keep it more fun, good for you I think that’s a great thing and if you want to take a blogger break, go for it, we all need a break once in a while. This is a hobby not a full time job, but even in a full time job we take a break once in a while 🙂

Thanks for stopping by to Check out my recap of August and what’s to come in 2015

Have a great day and Happy Reading
