(Originally posted at http://overflowingshelf.com - Please join me there!)
It has been awhile since I have taking up the pen - well, keyboard - here at Overflowing Shelf. A lot of factors have been the cause of this over the years, but I'm at the point in my life where I can get back to blogging.
When I first started Overflowing Shelf in 2010 over on Blogspot, I was at a completely different point in my life. I was just about to graduate high school and ready to move onto the next stage of my life at Boston University.
Fast-forward five years (really FIVE?!?) and so much has changed. I've been out of college for over a year and working full-time doing public relations at an agency I love in a city I love.
Over the years, I have had less time to spend writing here. Overflowing Shelf got pushed aside as an afterthought amidst papers, multiple jobs, college hockey games, and even *gasp* naps.
While I've had a great time over the last five years. Something has been missing.
And that something is this blog.
I miss sharing my opinions on books I have read with others. I miss the community of other book-loving people. I miss gushing about the books I love and forcing them on other people. I even miss the drama in the blogosphere.
It's time to start up again. Set realistic expectations for myself. Slowly fall back into my old blogger habits.
I can't promise much right away as I know me. It will take time for me to have a lot of content on this blog. And that's okay! I need to remember that and continue telling myself that. It's okay to take it slow.
To my readers, old and new alike, hello! I hope you will join me on this journey as I start to get Overflowing Shelf back up and running again.
So please join me over at overflowingshelf.com!
