Hello everyone! It’s been quite some time since I’ve written in this space and mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out what I want to do here. As much as I love reading and writing reviews, I felt a bit stagnant coming down to the end of 2022 and wanted to take a break to reassess what it is I do. And if you don’t follow me on Instagram, something that I’ve been deeply getting into lately is journaling. It has been such a source of self-care for me as I navigate my mental health.
So why not keep this blog as a digital reading journal? The other day I was doing some research about which is a better way to disseminate information to readers. Is it a blog or is it a newsletter? And through my research, what I found is that a blog is a kind of like an online journal. You write about your special interest, you share things with your audience, and you find community through the mutual respect and love for the subject.
That’s what I want for this space. I want it to feel more like a reading journal than a place where I store all my book reviews. For a very long time, that’s what it felt like. And while I may have a physical journal to write all my reading thoughts, I want the space to share them as well.
I hope you enjoy it! I still plan on posting reviews and things like that, but also an added bonus where I also journal about my books.
