WHR: The state of things!

on

Hey! Long time no post.

Things around here have been quiet. By quiet, I mean you could hear the crickets. I thought I might explain a bit of why and then get on into other details.

Around October, my life in general was hectic. I was taking care of my mom who had knee replacement, trying to keep the house clean to her standards (we are talking white glove standards here), working, running all over for doctors appointments of my own, etc etc..Life was basically trying to swallow me whole. I decided to take a two week break from reviewing, that turned into three, which turned into a month and somehow we are in March and nothing has been happening.

I started poking my head back in during Jan, trying to see what I could do that would keep this place going. I’d actually considered shutting it down. Decided to see how Feb went … Laughable, that came and went. Told myself, you will start in March. Well, the beginning of March rolled around and my 18 year old cat died. We’d had her since I was 14, to say I was devastated doesn’t cover it.

Now it’s almost April, there have been a lot of things going on behind the scenes on the blog and I’m ready to dip my toes back into this. I have reviews that are scheduled, but I’m going to ease myself back into this. I’m not taking ARCs, although I am finishing what’s in the Queue to Review. (Even if they are horribly late.)

What is on the list that I think I can currently manage:

Reviews

Some promotions; To include release days, blitz, tours, etc. (I’m going to one favorite place that I use and will add the others as I can.)

Random Thursdays – These are fun.

Wild Heart Reviews store – This will be a store of books that I would hands down recommend. This also won’t be instant. It’s going to take me a few to figure out but I at least have the ability to do it now.

Also tags and other social interaction via bloggers as I have time – These are also fun and break up the day to day of “I need to review this or that.”

Again, I’m doing this at a slower pace than before. I have to. It’s just me blogging again for awhile. I may on-board my co-bloggers again as they have time as well.

I think that’s pretty much it, y’all. I can’t think of anything else off the top of my head.

Have a great Thursday!

~A

    Sorry to hear that things have been so crazy for you. I hope things calm down soon, and I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your cat. That’s so hard when they’ve been a member of your family for so long. :hugs:

      Thank you for the kind words, Julie. 🙂 I’m with you on the hoping it calms down. It’s that or I’m learning to adapt to it better because I’ve really missed reviewing.
