The Day After I Leave This Blog…

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.

1Q84 (Vintage International) de [Haruki Murakami, Jay Rubin, Philip Gabriel]

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.

Let’s Talk Bookish | How Has Blogging Affected My Reading?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!

This week’s topic is: How Has Blogging Affected Your Reading? (suggested by Mini @ Book and Corner)

I always loved reading, and i always loved writing, so i guess writing about the stuff i read made a lot of sense to me.

Yet, blogging has completely changed the way i read. The most important thing is the amount of books i read now in comparison to the amount i did before i started blogging, or really blogging as i am doing these days.

Before i started blogging i would read one or two books a month, and mostly reread books i loved. Now i feel like an “obligation” to read more books, which i don’t hate, on the contrary, i love the fact that writting about books makes me read even more than i ever did.

The blogsphere opened my eyes to a lot of new content i never dreamed i could get to, i hear about new books and opinions on different bookish topics which help me become a better reader and a better person, or at least that’s how it feels to me. I learn a lot from other bloggers, and i totally love the fact that even if i bring very little to the discussion i can share the platform with so many wonderful people.

I now write stuf down about the books while i’m reading them to remember them instead of rereading all the time the same stuff.

It’s like, now that i know i have a place to share my opinions i feel the urge to read more, so i can have even more content.

Sure, sometimes i write a lot and then i have to delete the stuff i’ve written because it doesn’t feel right, but most of the time i feel safe in my own blog to talk about everything that means something to me.

Blogging opened my eyes to a ot of diversity i didn’t realize i was missing out on. I think, reading more diverse authors helped me to see the world different and outside my little bubbble. I don’t know how much do you know about me but i’m a very lonely person without much life experience and now i find myself reading about so many different ways of living, it’s insane how much i was missing.

It’s not a secret i read mostly YA books because i missed so much in my younger years and this way i get to live it a little. Blogging gives me the place to share this kind of topics i would never talk about with the people around me becuase they wouldn’t understand it. But in here, i feel like there are people out there, like me.

I don’t know if i’m still on topic…

But blogging and reading, in my head, go together. I read, i blog about it, i interact with people, i read more so i can blog more.

I love reading and blogging and i wouldn’t change it for any other hobby.

I don’t know, i feel like i went out off topic, but tis was something i guess i needed to say or something.

If you got to here.. thanks for reading!
