Today I am here to tell you about a few updates happening both in my life and on the blog.
So, at the moment I am currently in the midst of working three different jobs. One is almost a full time job and is one that I am finding incredibly stressful at the moment. There are a lot of reasons for this but at the moment, I am finding it difficult to find any enjoyment out of the work. Then I have a part time job where I work between 7 and 10 hours a week. This is a busy role and is definitely better than my full time job. Then I also have my freelance work which I am doing online whenever I get the chance.
So with all of that, I’ve been feeling a little strung out. I’m still trying to see my friends and still fitting in blogging and reading around it all but if you’ve been wondering about my lack of videos lately or any of my odd tweets – this is the reason for it.
At the moment I am trying to look for different jobs because I want to feel a little bit less stressed as it is really starting to affect my emotional and physical state which is never good! I also want to be able to start writing again because at the moment, I haven’t been able to find the time or motivation to do so and it is really pressing down on me.
With the above information, you may think that I’d probably be blogging less but actually I am finding that blogging is something that is helping me get through it all. It can be stressful if I don’t find the time to do something but essentially, blogging is about organisation and being in control, two things that help to keep me sane and calm me down a little bit – so I’m not going anywhere!
What’s happened recently;
You probably haven’t noticed this but over the past few months I’ve been sorting some things on the blog. I have sorted through all of my posts and corrected the categories, sorted out the tags, updated my favicon, and just generally done a lot of background organisation to keep the blog looking neat and running smoothly – which has really helped. Kind of like, a tidy kitchen is a tidy mind!
I have also created a schedule for the entire of Feb and got some posts in the work for March and April too. And with these comes some new features that will be arriving/returning to the blog, these are as follows;
Blogger Spotlight; That’s right, I’m bringing it back! I’m already sorted until April and will be contacting bloggers shortly about May and June!
Adult Book Reviews; Wait… what? Yeap! I’m reading a lot more adult books lately and because of that I have decided that I’m going to take the plunge and review them on here. So expect some of these to come your way in the next few months.
Month-Long Events; I hope to plan some more month-long events this year. In the pipeline is Finish It Feb, Spring Clean Your Reader (April), Something for July, Netgalley November and Done in December. Hope you’ll like them!
Faye’s Thoughtful Friday; I’ve been doing this for a while now but this is just to let you know that I’ll be continuing it!
Now I don’t plan to post every day, but I do hope to post at least three times a week.
So that’s all my updates and things, so to finish up…
