I've blogged about reading slumps/reading funks before and I'm unhappily letting you know that I'm in one right now. I don't want to bore you with the same old questions to ponder, regarding reading slumps, so here's something a little different:
Have you ever fallen into such a reading/blogging funk that you've considered quitting your blog?
I know that can be a pretty big deal to some people, but I'm kind of at a point in my life where blogging just isn't doing it for me. I can't pinpoint any exact reason, but when I started blogging, it was a hobby and it was fun. It's still a hobby, but it's become less and less fun for me.
I don't know if it's just because I'm in a funk right now, or if, maybe, it's time for me to take a step back and reevaluate what I'm doing.
I started a new job back in July and I hated it.
It was stressful and crazy and I felt completely lost.
It is still stressful and crazy and I, on occasion, feel completely lost, but I've fallen into a routine there.
A routine that I'm really kind of enjoying.
I work with some phenomenal people (some much more phenomenal than others) and my real life has pulled me far away from my online life - and blogging.
I'm even at a point where I'm bummed out I'm not working this weekend - I found someone to cover for me so I could go to YALLFest - because I miss out on working my weekend with my favorite co-worker.
As a bookish person, I should be thrilled to be spending a weekend with bookish people.
And I am.
Just not as much as I should be.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever fallen out of love with books and blogging or just a beloved hobby in general?
Did you give it up or just take a break?
As of right now, I'm not sure what my blogging plans are for the future. I have some commitments that I need to stick around for, so I've got at least another month and a half, but after the holidays I plan on reevaluating the situation to decide what I should do.
Any kind words are appreciated :)
