That WHR Thing (Blog Update)

on

Hey guys,

I figured I should drop in a note while I had a chance and update you all on why the blog has been crickets for the past few weeks.

I got a new job. That sounds like the simplest statement ever, right? While I can’t say it’s consuming my life, I do sit at my computer all day long with headphones on. I’m transcribing if the headphone bit didn’t give it away. By the time I’m done for the day, my brain is fried and I just want to run from my computer. I haven’t had the energy to sit down and write reviews. I’ve been reading still, and I’m still trying to make my way through my ARC pile, but no reviews. Unless I had it previously scheduled, nothing had gone up. That all being said, I’m pulling back a bit more at this point. At least until I can figure out how to manage everything, as well as my mom’s surgeries, taking care of her, the new puppy that she brought home (Rescue animals for the win. If you want the story behind that, yell at my head.), you know, general life. I just have to figure out how to make it all fit. It’s taking some adjustment on my part. (By some, I’m actually saying huge amount here. I really didn’t think getting a job would impact this much.) I’m also still dealing with my health issue. Oh, but hey! Random insert! I did have

That all being said, I’m pulling back a bit more at this point. At least until I can figure out how to manage everything, as well as my mom’s surgeries, taking care of her, the new puppy that she brought home (Rescue animals for the win. If you want the story behind that, yell at my head.), you know, general life. I just have to figure out how to make it all fit. It’s taking some adjustment on my part. (By some, I’m actually saying huge amount here. I really didn’t think getting a job would impact this much.) I’m also still dealing with my health issues.

Oh, but hey! Random insert! I did have to get the nodules on my thyroid checked again. They aren’t growing, so big plus. 😀 I’m still dealing with the fallout from them being there, but they’ve stayed the same size.

Anyway, I’ll be shuffling a few things around on the blog itself when I get a chance. The Queue to Review will be updated. I’m on the fence about making a Summer TBR because I don’t think I’m going to get to it like I have the last three. You can still check my GoodReads for what I’ve read lately. I do keep that updated, it just won’t be my whole fun color-coordinated list.

What does this mean for WHR? Hopefully not too many changes, but you will see less promotions, you will see less reviews. Once I get through my current NetGalley ARC list, and the wonderfully patient authors ARCs that contacted me personally, and are sitting in my pile, I am not taking any more of them. That won’t always be the case, but I think I’ll be on the no ARC train until December, possibly January. (I’m just really hesitant to commit to ARCs when I’m worried I won’t have time to finish them.)

I’ll be primarily writing reviews on days that I have off and scheduling them to post sometime during the week. It may be three a week as opposed to how I would sometimes post three a day before.

In terms of my co-bloggers, Gary will be extremely busy with his job before long. I can’t give details, sorry! It’s safe to say that you won’t see many reviews from him.

J.J., on the other hand, is still posting reviews on her own blog. (You can check her reviewer page for the info!) I would fully encourage anyone to go find these and read them! I love her reviews.

That is it, for now, folks. I’m probably forgetting something but who knows.

I hope you’re all having a fantastic summer so far! (Or if you’re in the other hemisphere, I hope you’re having a great winter too!)

~A.
