I used to because it became rather labor intensive, but then I just scaled back. I've found my happy medium.
Yes, because recently I talked to someone who used to blog all of the time and she said it was too much like high school. I am starting to see what she means. But I have been reviewing books for as long as I've been reading, so I would do this anyway. Plus I've "met" some really cool people this way. I enjoy your blog btw and hope you continue.
Not really, maybe cutting back a little but I don't think I could quit. I like talking about books to much and it is my outlet to doing so.
Sometimes. It just gets a little intimidating occasionally. But I love talking about books and I love meeting other people who love books through Blogger and I don't think I would make it very long without coming back.
YES. In fact, I kind of did for a few months. I'm just now starting to get back into it. My life was kind of crazy and I couldn't get the motivation to review or even read other blogs. But now I've realized how much I missed it and I'm vowing to start doing it regularly again.
Oh yeah, all the time. Getting a review partner helped immensely.
Sometimes, mostly when I have a lot going on outside the blogosphere. The thought of having to write all those posts and keep the blog active gets a little overwhelming sometimes, and I just think "Why am I doing this?! It only causes me stress!" Then I just remind myself that it's my blog and I can post much I want/am able to, it's not a job and no one will fire me if I don't do it.
I've been thinking about this lately and just posting my reviews on Goodreads. But it's mostly from where I'm swamped with schoolwork.
I haven't, but I could see considering it if my "real life" got too busy. Sometimes it can be stressful/a chore to make sure there are posts scheduled, so that the blog looks busy and to keep people interested. But I think that's the only reason I would even consider it. When it comes down to it creating a blog should be for yourself, so you can post whatever you want, whenever you want, how often, etc. I would never let the politics of it all stop me.
Sometimes, but not seriously. I sometimes wonder how much it's changing my reading habits, and if I'd be happier just doing whatever and not having to worry about reviewing or content or any sort of obligations.But I know that a) that's just the lazy and/or fed-up me talkingb)I'd miss it. Sharing and getting feedback and the sense of accomplishment, and the ability to look back on what I read and what I thought about what I read -- all that would go away, and I would regret that.
