Taking a short break…

If you couldn’t tell from my post on Friday, I’ve been feeling a lot a little bit of pressure lately. I have a lot going on in my life, and I have been incredibly stressed out as of late. While I absolutely love blogging, at the moment it is causing more stress than escape, and that is never a good thing when it comes to your hobbies.

I’ve decided to take the week off from posting. As of right now it will just be for this week, but I reserve the right to extend that break if I need to. 😉

As I said earlier, I have a lot going on right now. Unfortunately, most of the things that are happening are not things that I can just drop doing (a.k.a. work, singing engagements/rehearsals, adoption stuff, physical therapy, etc.) So, something has to give for the time being, for the sake of my mental well-being, and blogging is going to have to take a backseat for a hot second.

Don’t you worry, I will be back at it again soon, and hopefully I will be all chipper and refreshed when I return. 🙂

Love and happy reading,

Discussion Post: Does blogging make you feel like you should read faster?

I have had something on my mind for a few months, and I decided to write up a discussion post. Since I have begun blogging, I have felt the need to read extremely quickly.

Now, I am generally a pretty fast reader as it is. It is not unusual of me to finish a book within one or two days time. However, since I started blogging, I feel like I just can’t keep up with how much other bloggers read. I almost feel like I will be judged if I read too slowly.

Even with my quick pace (I’m averaging around 12 books per month right now), there are still other bloggers who are reading more books per month than I am. I know that this has nothing to do with me, and that there are other bloggers out there who are reading less than I am. But, for some reason, I have felt a lot of pressure to read more and more books each month, to the point where I feel sometimes feel guilty if I have had a slower reading week.

Does anyone else ever feel this way? If so, how do you combat this feeling? I would love to hear your thoughts down in the comments!! 

Love and happy reading,
