Am I more behind than you? Probably…

September 8, 2016 Fun Questions 5

Fun Questions LogoJoin me as I ask a Fun Question that’s been on my mind. I’ll give you my take, but I really hope you’ll jump in with your answers too, since I’m really curious to know what my fellow readers and bloggers think! So today’s question is…

Am I more behind than you? Probably…

Today’s fun question is more like an opportunity to make you feel MUCH BETTER about your current blogging situation. I see people all the time mentioning that they need to write 4 reviews, 5 reviews, 10 reviews. I see people saying they’re really behind on answering comments. I’m here to show you just how behind I am and see… Am I more behind than you? The answer is most likely yes and you can feel much better about your blogging situation.

I’ve spent about a year having false blogging starts and lots of very real breaks. My life just couldn’t handle the blog for some reason. Well, I’m finally back for real (I hope!). My life seems to finally have the space again. So I sat down this past week and figured out exactly how many reviews I need to post to the blog. These are the books I’ve read and not reviewed on the blog in any way, shape or form. To keep track I created a goodreads shelf. That shelf has… wait for it…

70 books!

Seriously ya’ll that 70 reviews I need to post to my blog. Now I have written some of those reviews. *ahem* Some of them, as in 22!!

So how do I go on from here? Well, this is why I’ll be sharing a lot of reviews via my feature “Just a few books I read.” Because I can’t possibly write complete reviews for all those books. But I really really liked a good number of them and want to share them. Some will probably never get a mention and that makes me sad. But what can you do?

So did I make you feel better? Am I more behind than you?

    Hey, you have 22 of the reviews written. That’s great. I’ve read so many books that I want to review and I know I will never get all of them done. There are some books that I listen to just for fun, knowing I’m not going to review them (like The Dresden Files and Shifters Unbound unless I started getting new releases from publishers). I like that you’re reviewing a few books at once. I might do that some too (especially for some series that are older). Good luck getting caught back up. 🙂 I’m really glad to hear you’re in a better place, life wise. Amazing what a difference better support system at your job can make.

    If you’re not feeling it then you have to go with what is best for you! I totally get it though, there’s a two week period where I posted nothing and while review wise I’m back on top of it, I’m definitely not in the commenting department (and I end up feeling guilty for that!)

    LOL You can only do what you can do, Berls. Have you heard me say that before?!? 🙂 Seriously though. And I know I’m one of those apologizing for being behind but I’m trying not to stress over it because, well there’s only one me. So I’ll be happy to see mini-reviews under the “Just a Few Books I Read” banner. And I’ll be happy to check out your GR shelf to see others. But you KNOW we don’t have to review every single book we read. Right? If it makes you feel better, there are several books I’ve read since BEA that I did not do reviews for on my blog. They were great reads and I put them on my GR shelf but no one saw them on my blog. 😀
    Happy Thursday, girl! {{hugs}}
