Hey there fellow readers!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the topic of, what will i do the day i leave this blog. Obviously it’s not something i’m planning on doing for the time being, but i think it’s something worth planning to. I mean, at the moment my blog is in a good place, it could be better, but i just enjoy doing what i do, i’m not asking for more than i already got. I’m blogging because i’m enjoying doing so, and i think it’s a good place to bring myself as i am for real.
The thing is, i truly started wondering what will i do the day i get tired of blogging about books and decide to move on with my life. I don’t know if that day will ever come, but hey, i’d like to be prepared for anything that could happen.
And so, i’ve been thinking about it a lot. I looked at how my life looks while blogging, how it takes times and it’s so much fun for me. I love blogging about books, and i truly enjoy doing so, but one day i mmight not like it anymore, or need a time out from the internet, so here is what i’ll do when (and if) i leave this blog.
Since i’m a book blogger, i need to be reading so i have content to make. This doesn’t mean i’ll stop reading the day i leave this blog, but i might read larger books that will took me more time to read. I usually read 300-400 pages books because it’s easy for me to finish and then i can review 1 or 2 book per week. I know it’s not much but it’s my best and i’m happy enough with that.
If i ever leave this blog and have the time to actually read larger books the first one i’ll want to read is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. It’s a book i totally want to read but it’s also a really long trilogy (more than 1000 pages) which i don’t feel like i have the time to do right now.
You have to understand how important is for me to bring you as much content as i can, i do my best. I know i’m not a great blogger but i’m always trying my best.
So, as i was saying. I would read larger books because no one will be expecting me to publish a review on it.
I talked about my fear of big book a while ago (Who Is Afraid Of The Big Book? (Spoiler, it’s me)) and my biggest fear to be honest is not being able to post anything in the blog for a while. I know i’ve been away for a very long time and i wasn’t as active as i am now before October 2020, but right now the blog is my most important hobbie, alongside reading, and i want to have as much content as i can.
I think as a reader who have beenaway of reading for a long time, i won’t be doing so again. Rediscovering reading has been one of my biggest and happiest moments of my life up until one. So, i’ll keep doing so, or at least that’s what i hope for.
Another thing i might do is read all the YA i didn’t read when they were popular, stuff like Fallen and Hush, Hush. I know it sounds lame but i’m extremely curious about a lot of series i didn’t read before, and those i feel don’t have a place right now in the blogsphere.
Also, i would reread a ton of old favorite like Beautiful Creatures, just because i can. I don’t think i have the time to reread them right now and bring more and new content to the blog, so for now it is in stand by.
Well… i guess, overall what i plan on doing the day i retire is to take it easy, enjoy different readings of what i usually bring to the blog and just enjoy a few old favorites.
Please don’t think i’m holding myself back because of the blog, it’s just the way i have to merge the two hobbies i have. I still read a lot of book i truly enjoy and love and that’s because of this blog.
Thank you so much for the opportunities you’ve given me by reading everything i post and share, you guys are amazing and i hope to be around for a very long time.
