Well, it’s been about nine months since I last wrote on this blog. It’s not that I ever intentionally stopped writing, it’s just life got in the way – as life usually does – and I got distracted. That being said, I’ve missed it on here. It’s almost my 7 year blogaversary! I can’t believe it’s been that long since I started The Calico Books. So much has changed in my life since then. Through it all though, one thing has stayed the same and that is books.
That’s why I want to start blogging again – not because of the views or the follows or the ARCs (which I do always appreciate) but because of the love of reading. Books have transformed every aspect of my life. From the cheesy romance novels to the timeless classics and everything in between. I truly love them all. I want this blog to transcend judgement and stereotypes of what I “should” be reading and fully and freely share the books I’ve read, am currently reading and want to read.
I know I’ve posted several “I’m back” posts over the years. But then I never really stick with it for too long. I’ll be honest, there have been times where I wonder if I’m just done blogging. I’ve even considered officially quitting. But the truth is, I don’t want to be done. I love the idea of writing and sharing my thoughts online – even if only 5 people read it. So this time, I’m going into this blog with a different mindset. I’m writing what I want when I want and I’m going to be authentically me through all of it. I’m going to talk mostly about books here, but don’t be surprised if a few other posts pop up along the way.
This post is turning rambly, so I think I’ll wrap it up for now. Just know that I’m back. You can look forward to some reviews coming up very soon. Who knows what else is in store, but I’m looking forward to it. 🙂
Welcome back! I hope your break was a refreshing one.
