The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
I actually saw this weekly meme on @Tessa Talks Books and thought it sounded like something fun to try. I am not sure if I want to post these, if I continue, on a particular day or if I want to post them any time they fit/I remember to actually write a post.
Do you think you will ever get tired of blogging? (submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
My first “blogiversary” is not until August of this year, so this is an interesting question to contemplate when I am still a newish blogger. To start off my thoughts, I thought I would give some background in my thought process to answer the initial question.
Before the blog was ever created, I loved reading posts about different types of books, games, tv shows, or movies to experience. I liked getting more ideas about new entertainment that I had no idea existed or to gain a second opinion on something I was on the fence about.
As I have written in some of my other posts, my reading adventure officially started at the end of April 2020. I read a few books here and there before, but it was April of 2020 where I started to get into reading and wanted to start reading any and all novels I could get my hands on. The decision to start the blog came as a way to track my thoughts on all the books I read. It then morphed around September where I discovered ARCs and it continued from there.
Towards the beginning of 2021, I decided to try multiple weekly memes. I think it is the memes that help me not experience burnout as they break up me just writing reviews only. I have been lucky that I still greatly enjoy writing reviews, as well, but sometimes I am not in the mood for everything.
At this point, there is some moments where I have burnout, but it is not due to blogging. Instead, outside influences, work, life, etc., make me tired and not want to do much, including writing any posts. In those cases, I typically take a small “vacation” from technology. This can be an actual vacation, a run/walk with my dogs, hanging out in my backyard, or even general housework. Any tiny break from whatever is getting to me at the time, is usually all I need for a reset. As I cannot predict the future, it is impossible to say whether I will ever stop blogging, but, given the choice, I plan to continue for many years to come.
If you have a blog or have blogged in the past, do you ever see a moment where you will be tired or it or remember the moment where you decided to stop?
