Fare thee well

It's been nearly six months since I updated this blog, which means that I have been busy. Additionally, I haven't felt the pull of the blog much since my last entry. There have been times where I have mentally composed a blog post, but never actually took the time to sit down and write one.

Also, I feel that I've outgrown the whole "Bookkitten" personality. Don't worry, I still read a lot, but I don't feel the need to write any reviews. I read some of my previous reviews, and feel as if I gave too much away in my summaries and critiques. Eventually, it got hard to keep up with all of the books and reviews I tried to compose.

My best posts, to be honest, were the ones about my daily life. I liked those better than many of the book reviews I've written. For that reason, I'm going to keep this blog online, so that I can share them with people.

I've made some real-life friends in blogging, and I don't wish to let those go. For that reason, I am going to keep my E-mail address and Twitter handle. If you want to keep in touch, here's how you can reach me:

E-mail: thebookkitten@gmail.com
Twitter: @TheBookkitten

And in case you're wondering...yes, I do have a Facebook page. However, it is under my real name. Some of you out there are already friends with me on FB, and know my true identity. If you're interested at all, please send me an E-mail, and I'll be happy to respond to your request.

As for what the future holds, I'm not totally ruling out a permanent sabbatical from blogging. I may return to the Internets, but under a different blog name and personality.

In the meantime, I hope you all are well. Thank you for supporting me for the past four years; you've all helped me get through some difficult times and I appreciate that tremendously.

Fare thee well,
The Bookkitten

I got tired of doing the book reviews also. It took the enjoyment right out of reading for me.

I totally get that moving on in terms of blogs...I originally had more of a book blog then changed to a mommy weight loss one. Perhaps its time for a more "real life blog" Will be following on twitter! Good luck on all that awaits you
