I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, so I figured I’d just bite the bullet: I’ll be quitting this blog. The main reason is a severe lack of motivation for a long period of time. This probably is not a surprise, considering my lack of updates.
If there was just one reason, I would’ve taken a hiatus. I did consider that, but in the end, there are multiple reasons. Firstly, the past months I dealt with job/unemployment issues in real life causing anxiety and stress, even before I got laid off, so I didn’t have the energy. Even during unemployment, though, I did not write a single sentence despite having plenty of time, so that’s telling. I will start a new job in August I’m excited about, though, so there’s that.
Perhaps the most important reason, however: I prefer to just read and enjoy a book, rather than ‘having’ to write a well-structured and argumented review. Though I have never posted reviews of every single book I read, I still find myself reading books wondering if I could write something about it. Finally, I also have no clue what to write about, and I haven’t had any inspiration for months. Even before my last post in April, I wasn’t very active either for this reason.
I will still continue to read books, and occasionally post about them on Instagram (before it dies with the algorithm as it is) when I feel like it, but the bar is not as high for posts on there. Also, since it’s not solely a book account; it’s not as restricting and I can post about my cats and my other interests as well.
I’d like to thank everyone for following this blog and liking/sharing/commenting on my posts! I do appreciate the interaction I got and that probably made this blog last the years that it did. I’m not sure whether I’ll keep this blog around or not. I will not delete everything right away, but I do have a habit of deleting accounts I no longer do anything with down the line. So yeah, I might send this blog off to the the black space of wherever it is blogs go to after being deleted some time in the future.
