Sunday Ramblings…

Hey everyone! I haven’t done a Sunday Ramblings in a few weeks. I’ve been a sporadic blogger at best the past few months. Thanks to all have hung around anyway and commented on all my posts. Red heartU all!

It started out because of a reading slump. No reading = no reviews. Then there was a serious illness in my family that kept me out of town frequently and not really in the mood to blog. The situation has improved and thank you to the bloggers out there (you know who you are) who let me vent through this difficult time. I still can’t believe how important you’ve all become to me. Seriously – some days you guys are the ones that help put a smile on my face or help me make it through a frustrating day.

On the plus side I’m really enjoying reading now and have caught up with most of my review obligations. That has taken an enormous weight off me and has allowed me to view blogging as a hobby again. I’m excited to get back to it. I also don’t feel the need to post 7 days a week anymore or write deep, novel length reviews. I’m hoping to get back to my earlier spontaneous style of blogging. It was just more fun for me that way.

So yeah….that’s my boring TMI Sunday Ramble for this week and now I’m going to link up a few earlier posts that you may have missed.

Just for a dose of oddness – this is a spam comment I got this week on an older review. Not sure why but it cracked me up.

“you're truly a good webmaster. The website loading pace is amazing. It seems that you're doing any
unique trick. Moreover, The contents are masterwork.
you have performed a magnificent process in this matter!
My web page –………”

Have a great Sunday everyone!!

  4. I am so glad that things are better and that you are out of the slump. Hugs

  5. I'm glad you are enjoying reading and blogging again. I get my best feedback from the more spontaneous easy going posts. I should try to remember that.

  6. Blog to live, don't live to blog. Or something. Seriously, there's no point doing this if it isn't fun. Give yourself a break once in a while, and you'll come back better than ever.
