I’m Back from Hiatus! Feat. Some Updates

Not to like, completely copy Brittany and come back from hiatus with a list of things that are changing, but I’m doing exactly that. Hi, my name is Arin and I am tentatively back from hiatus! I will probably be slow to get back into the whole blog hopping, responding to comments, and posting regularly thing, but I am now far more here now than I was for the last week? Also, I know this is a short hiatus but I thought stepping away from this would help my headspace but I think it’s actually made that worse. Basically, I don’t know what I need to do to help myself but it turns out it wasn’t stepping back from this so I am now going to experiment with other things instead.

But, for now, I’ll just talk about what the updates are concerning my blog:

  • I’m getting rid of a posting schedule. I posted a lot this summer, like almost everyday if not everyday. I’m not going to lie, it was fun and I really enjoyed it! But it was also draining for me and it took away from time I could have been spending with my family or friends and I will admit I’m not the biggest fan of that. Previously, I had a schedule where I would post Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday but now I am basically going to post whenever? I know this isn’t revolutionary and tons of other people already do this, but it is new for me.
  • I will be talking a lot more about sapphic books and other media I am consuming. I am currently in a headspace where I am able to handle this content and I am enjoying it a whole bunch so I want to talk about it! This doesn’t mean I will suddenly stop talking about Shadowhunters (hello Clary) or Elementals or any of the other things you’re used to me rambling about, it just means I will probably have more content dedicated to f/f!
  • I don’t plan on doing Top 5 Wednesdays anymore. They were really fun, don’t get me wrong, but I noticed I wasn’t really enjoying writing them and that it started to seem like a chore so unless I see a prompt that really excites me, I probably won’t be doing them anymore. I will keep doing Top Ten Tuesdays because there are some prompts I am beyond excited for and can’t wait to jump into.
  • I want to focus more on book reviews and the tons of other ideas I’ve had forever but haven’t done anything with, so I guess be on the lookout for those?

Okay, I think that was all I wanted to say in this. I think. Maybe. If not, I’ll just add it to an intro of another post, but hopefully that was it. I’m excited to be back and have a lot of content I’m looking forward to creating and sharing!

  2. Welcome back from hiatus Arin! Haha, like you I’ve abandoned a posting schedule! I write when I feel like it and I think that’s a way to reduce blogging stress. I’m excited to see what you’ll write in the future and I’ll definitely be tuning in! ❤️
