Here is my annual ‘Welcome Back To Blogging’ post. Every year I seem to disappear from the blogging world around the holidays. I always have a lot of THOUGHTS about blogging — favorites lists, books I’m looking forward to reading the next year, etc —  but I never seem to actually get around to blogging my thoughts. It’s easy to say the holidays keep me busy and that is true! But this year I’ve been even busier! I’m a new Grandma and I get to babysit every day while Mommy goes to work! I’d say that is a pretty happy excuse!

Never the less, I DO want to get back to blogging. I have a few reviews written but not posted, and even more books I’ve read but not reviewed. I have lists of books on my radar, lists of books I loved in 2017, and reading goals for 2018. Other than the annual Goodreads Challenge (I’ve set my goal for 50 books!) I’ve not signed up for any challenges, and I probably won’t. But I do have a few goals, or challenges of my own making, that I hope to reach in 2018, and I hope to blog about some of those. And since I am reading, and re-reading, a lot of little kids books currently, I may just blog about a few of my favorites. I hope to get back to blogging regularly, at least once per week and ideally 2-3 times per week, starting next week.

Happy 2018 everybody! And Happy Reading!

  1. Spending time with a little one seems like a good reason to have stayed away from the blog! :) Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and here's to a great 2018!

  2. Welcome back ! I know I've found the new year a bit overwhelming this year. I'm starting to host a challenge and just have so many ideas for things to do. I think once I get back into more routine blogging, I'll be enjoying it more :)
