Switching Things Up

It's really no secret that I haven't been blogging much. I have noticed that I do not enjoy writing reviews anymore. This used to be my favorite part of blogging, but I guess I have just got burned out. So although I haven't been reviewing the books that I read, I have read some seriously amazing books. I'm going to do a March and April wrap up soon and I will talk about all the books there.

I want to start changing things up. I have always been afraid to reveal too much about myself on the blog. I don't share the blog with anybody except my sister, so I was always afraid that if I revealed too much somebody would stumble upon it. Although I'm still not going to share the blog with anybody in my real life, I still want to start putting more me in the blog.

I would like to start doing posts every once in awhile about life. I'm almost finished with my Sophomore Year of college and I get to start working again soon. I'm also going to be home for the summer, so that will be a change from my apartment living at college. I talk about it sometimes, but I would love to talk about it more often because nobody in my friend group is super supportive. I love to run, and running has been a passion of mine for almost 4 years now.

I would like to explore a variety of topics about college with you next year. I'm going to get a really small meal plan next year, so that means more grocery shopping, and time to look for more savings. I would love to share my passion for healthy foods, and a runner's diet.

Most of all I want to bring the fun back into the blog and I'm hoping that through more personal posts I can find what I love about blogging again. Books are still going to be an important part of this blog, but this blog can be so much more.

I will hopefully start this off with telling you guys my running story in honor of the Avera Breast Cancer Race I will be running in 2 weeks.


  1. I love this, Rachael! Your blog should be a reflection of YOU and the content you want to post - whether that's book reviews, wrap ups, discussions, or personal/life posts. I personally love "slice of life" posts on book blogs and getting to know people a bit better. I've been trying to do more of that on my blog lately and it makes a big difference. Keep it fun and interesting :) Looking forward to seeing what you share <3

    1. Thank you Lauren! I just want something different. I have been doing the same posts for 2 and 1/2 years. It will be nice to switch it up a little bit and make blogging exciting again.

    2. Exactly. That's so important. As long as you follow what makes it exciting, you'll always enjoy blogging.
