So I haven’t posted on this blog since January. I was flying there for a while but lost momentum at the end of 2022 and then some life things happened at the beginning of this year which where a bit shit and I just didn’t feel like posting. I’ve always said that I wouldn’t guilt myself about blogging and would only do it when I felt like it but then I don’t post and end up ‘behind’ and well, I feel guilty! 😀
Along with the life stuff I’ve been a bit slumpy with my reading and I’ve been either rereading a lot or steaming through monster romances which have saved me this year but there isn’t a huge amount to say about them, well besides the art culture around them is amazing.
I’ve also made huge strides in my fitness journey and have developed a little bit of an obsession with it. I’ve tried hard to make this journey as mentally positive as possible and I think I’m still there but I’m kind of on the cusp of it taking over everything. This wouldn’t be the first time this has happened to me and I’m trying to ensure that I don’t burnout or injure myself. I’m absolutely not over exercising like in the past but I am ignoring other things that I enjoy so I need to work on that. It’s the weights, I’m addicted to that high after completing a workout with them.
One of the things I’m thinking about doing here is to continue with my monthly book wrap-ups (and back date to January *eek*) and also add a collage of pictures from the month (starting in March) which I’ve been posting on Instagram. I like these as they feel like a little diary and I think they’d be nice to look back on. So I feel like having two roundup posts a month would help to keep consistent. For the moment the current blog look will stay the same but I might change it up in the future and I’m going to archive all my older posts in a less cluttered way but still make them easy to find.
I’ll likely also be adding more non-bookish posts, like where I’m at with fitness challenges and my most liked posts by far, nail updates! 😀
I’d also like to post about more controversial topics in the future like how problematic the diet industry is and maybe a bit about what it’s like to be living happily childfree but I don’t have the mental bandwidth for all that just yet!
