Sometimes I wonder what the hell I’m doing with this blog.
Today is my sixth blogversary, and I feel stuck. I’ve been blogging for six years, and in the quietness state of my blog, I’ve been reflecting about what I want my blog to be. I haven’t posted much—work has kept me away, and I’ve had a hard time focusing on reading a novel. I’ve always been like that, but it’s gotten worse this year. I can start a book easily, but finishing it? Hah! Books that are up my alley take me ages to read. I feel like I peaked, and I don’t know how to get back to that point where I was reading books and interacting with people.
Reflecting back on who I was now and back then, I’ve grown so much. I’m more opinionated; I know what I like and do not like to read (get that teen romance out of my face); I value my time more (in terms of what I want to read); I enjoy recommending books to people (which I never liked before, but I’m perfectly comfortable doing. I can talk up a storm of books people should read).
What I want to do in the future:
- Posting more! Reviews, comics talks, discussions maybe. Get back to my roots.
- Be active on social media. I want to talk to friends and new people about books, movies, and so on. I HAVE A LOT OF THOUGHTS ABOUT THINGS OKAY.
- Possibly revamp my blog design. Give it a fresh look. (But I am rather attach to it so IDK.)
Thank you to everybody who’s read my posts, and talked to about everything. <3
In the mean time, let me recommend some books I discovered this year that you should definitely read:
- Everything from Rick Riordian’s mythology imprint!!!!: Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi (Indian mythology) + The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes (Mayan mythology + disabled rep) + The Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee (Korean mythology in Space!!! + comes out in January 2019!)
I will celebrate my sixth blogoversary by watching Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
