Soooo….I’m struggling at the moment. This meerkat’s not at all happy and it’s circumstances I’m not quite ready to talk about but let’s just say I’m busy with things in my offline life and struggling to not only keep up blogging but to in fact even ‘like’ my blog at the moment! Yes, just over a year old and rather than feeling a proud achievement of reaching over a year old, I’m actually feeling pretty bad about it.
I made a lot of mistakes when I started blogging, I’ve promised to review too many books, been harassed and treated horribly by a lot of people along the way, attracted a lot of the wrong people to my blog, and have started to question the integrity of some of my reviews. On top of that I feel like apart from a tiny group of people who actually would really miss me if I left, most people don’t give a care and of those that do a huge chunk would only miss me for the ‘service’ I offer (i.e. reviews of their books). Yes, I sound a complete mess but I’m really struggling to like my own blog right now.
I don’t want to upset anyone but wanted to keep you in the loop in case you started wondering why I’ve been a little quiet lately and if you haven’t then I’m obviously very good at faking being happy.
The only thing I have done right now which has currently helped is to take down a few reviews from the authors who have harassed me in one way or another in the last year! Why should I be promoting the work or people who have been nasty to me!?
Anyway, for now I’m not doing anything else apart from mull through until the 20th March. That’s when the competition to win one of two copies of ‘A Lucky Day’ is over. I plan to speak more about what’s been happening then but I don’t currently want to spoil the mood of this blog with the way I currently feel. PLEASE spread the word or enter the giveaway yourself, it’s had barely any entries which just sucks 😦 It’s a very funny and well written book you could win and the books will be sent out by the author.
Thank you and sorry for this pretty lame and sad post. 😦
