Am I an Uninteresting Blogger? // DISCUSSION

Hey guys!! I know I’ve been kinda radio-silent lately and I promise I’m not dead. Or dying. Or sick. I’m literally stressed; both with my job and my personal life.

At times, I’m grateful to still even have a job, with all of the rapid turnouts and some of my coworkers leaving the company. I don’t want to snitch on anyone, given they might find me here lol, but I’ll just say I’m waiting for the next opportunity to come up. I’m even willing to travel to NY or somewhere else entirely because I’m so tired of being taken advantage of where I’m at. Even without a car, license or permit. Although I’m still working on that. But anyway, when I come home, I don’t want to write, read or even blog-hop. I just want to sleep!! And maybe eat because during my lunch break is the only time I get a bite or two.

But, you guys didn’t click on this link to hear me bitch and moan about my job. To be honest, I think I’ve slipped back into disinterest when it comes to this blog. It had hit me when I’d started losing followers on my MAILCHIMP email list. It’d went from 2 to 5 in less than a week, so before I could lose anymore, I deleted the whole mailing list so I wouldn’t be disappointed anymore.

However maybe it’s a sign. Am I an uninteresting blogger? Am I not creative or funny or intelligent enough? What am I doing wrong? What am I not doing? Should I start from scratch again? Should I get a co-writer? Like, what do I do??

I never really used to care about how others thought about me, as long as I had something important to say. However now, it feels like I’ve run out of topics to write about, and how I want those topics to be discussed.

To be honest I never thought I’d still have this blog. I thought it’d be just a moment in time and I’ve made so many friends and connections with it. But now I’m at yet another standstill on what to do with it.

I don’t want to seem desperate and ask what would you guys would like me to write about. But if you could be dears and throw some ideas around (instead of memes and prompts) that’d be cool. It’d seem less like a job and more like a community between bookish people.

Let me know your thoughts below! Comment below!

Thanks for reading!


I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡
This week's prompt:  More Than a Father (In tribute to Father’s day, a character that is a mentor to a younger person. It could be an uncle, a boss, a friend, but they supply mental support to another character.)

Authors I'd Like to Write Like // TOP 5 WEDNESDAY (November 2017)

Sam from Thoughts on Tomes has decided to take a hiatus for this summer (June, July, August). Read her note below:

Hello all! I’ve decided to put Top 5 Wednesday on hiatus for the summer (June, July, August). I’ve been going back and forth about this for some time, but I haven’t really been inspired for T5W lately, and I’m hoping a break from hosting and creating topics will breathe some enjoyment back into it for me.

In the meantime, there are YEARS of prompts listed here for you all to explore, complete for the first time if you are new, or revisit again if you’ve done them before in past years so please, still enjoy!

Happy reading xo  
While I am sad that there won't be any new T5W posts this summer, I'll be sure to find some topics to talk about that I haven't discussed in the past. 

For those who don't know what Top 5 Wednesday is, it's a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week. 

Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes authors I want to write like (November 29, 2017):
November 29th: Authors You'd Want to Write Like
--In honor of NaNo wrapping up, discuss some authors you'd like to write like. Whether it's their writing style, what genre they write in, or how many books they manage to churn out a year! 

I actually did a topic like this back in November 2017, with different authors, so this time I'll add in new writers, as well. 

One-Sentence Reviews // May 2019

Here is another addition from my One-Sentence Reviews segment for May 2019. This is to compartmentalize and arrange all of the books I read this month in a shortened time frame.
