One of the unfortunate side effects of reading and blogging like rockstars seems to be a tendency toward burnout.
How do you keep things fresh on your blog and in your reading?
Emotional burnout - I have been blogging since 2009, I had 3 great years then I hit the burnout mode, along with a few close bloggers. It was more emotional then anything.
Blogging burnout - I started receiving review requests, Netgalley comes on board, all exciting stuff but it hits me, I'm no longer reading what I want and to my mood, this was blogging burnout for me.
I did quickly accept that I could 'waste' time on memes that had 75% YA blogs and should just move on. This is when I decided to try something new.
Keeping it fresh for the Thriller, Mystery, Suspense, Crime genre fans
Late 2014 and all of last year, I joined a book club. Such a bad decision. Last year was the worst reading year of my life, so many books I didn't enjoy but I do love the ladies. I posted this discussion asking bloggers for feedback - note, we have been 'off' since the 1st week of December and it has been the best reading. I have to decide if I will tell them on Tuesday that I am leaving.
The good thing that has came out of this is that I am more grateful for the blogging community, the few blogging friends I have and reading what I choose and YOU the bloggers recommendations for me.
