So I've been thinking ...

… about this whole blogging thing. I decided to take  a break from it for the month of June, think about what I wanted to do, and I seem to have reached a decision.

Er, of sorts.

Mostly what I’ve decided is to stop doing reviews on here. It’s a time-consuming thing that I wasn’t enjoying, and I have so many other calls on my time that it really wasn’t a hard decision to make.

However, that led me to wonder whether I should give the blog away completely, given that I started it to be a books blog, of sorts. But the thing is, I like blogging. I like the people I’ve met through it, I like talking about books, and things on it … so in the end I decided to keep it, and just sort of … change direction a  little bit.

I like talking. Which will come as no surprise to anyone who’s ever met me – lol. So that’s what this blog will be. Me, talking. About – hopefully – lots of different things.

Books, of course. Cats, yes. Patrick sometimes. Work occasionally, maybe, though I’m not big on talking about work online. Movies, TV … things that I love and get excited about.

Also, while I’m making changes, I’ve set up another tumblr (because I forgot the name of the old one – lol) – it’s here: it’s mostly for photos – it’s replacing my days mean more blog which I am quietly retiring.

I’m starting with Photo a Day for July,  that I ganked from Chris at and here’s July’s list at the source: and I’m still half-assing with the whole Project 365 thing, which is why I started Days Mean More (the blog) in the first place. It’ll just be on tumblr now.

So. Yeah. I’m letting the reviewing go (I was only ever a half-assed reviewer any way) but holding on to the blog, and to the things that I truly love – Patrick, cats, movies, TV, books – and all of you all. :D

I think I've said this before, but it's worth repeating. It is *your* blog! Blog about whatever you want. If someone doesn't want to read about your cats, then they can skip those posts, or just stop reading. The rest of us are here, ready to read whatever you care to write about!

:D Yep, that's what I'm going with. :-)

Okay, I've moved you from the Book Blogs list in my Google Reader to the Just People list. Now you can write about whatever you want. :) I'm glad you're not leaving for good though!

More cats.

Glad you're staying to chat away and now I'm following your right tumblr (yes I got a tumblr - exciting right? it's largely fan vids).

Maree said...

Kristen: I can handle being just people ;)
Theresa: Always more cats. Always. :D
Jodie: Yay! Followed back :D

I am glad you are sticking around! It is always sad when bloggers vanish!

I just went through the same process and decided the same thing! :-) Glad that you're not leaving and looking forward to reading what you have to say.
