June Wrap Up + NOT my July TBR!

Hey guys! Now, before I say anything about not posting on Thursday and Friday, I’d like to make a small announcement. The intent of making a blogging schedule was for me to be regular with my blog posts. Although the schedule helped me in doing so, I realized that it was also giving me stress. I’d often find myself trying so hard to come up with an idea and when I wasn’t very convinced about it or hadn’t really thought it through, I noticed that I was being mediocre with my posts. I want to give each and every blog post my 100% and I don’t want them to be something I just worked on a few hours before posting.

 

So I’ve decided to tweak my schedule a little. I’ll be posting at least twice a week on any random day. I hope this will enhance the quality of my posts.

 

Apart from that, I actually do have a reason for not posting on Thursday and Friday. I felt disappointed in myself. I wasn’t inspired to write or post anything. I’d seen a ton of bloggers posting June Wrap Ups on their blogs and looking at those posts gave me a sickening feeling. I saw that they read and reviewed so many books and posted so much more frequently than I did. I was humiliated and embarrassed – I’d read just two books. I didn’t want to do a June Wrap Up – I felt so…. mediocre.

 

Eventually, I spoke some sense into my head. I decided to talk to you guys about how I felt. Yes, my traffic may have reduced drastically – but that doesn’t give me a reason to sit and mourn about it. This blog is meant for me to express without any constraints, and that’s what I’m going to do.

 

So finally……

This time I haven’t decided to include a July TBR. It didn’t quite help and it narrowed down my options. I feel like I would have had a better reading month if I hadn’t been so stubborn about my TBR.

 
Before I end this post, I have some really really great news for you guys!!! I ended up getting approved for two eARCs on Netgalley!!! I’d just recently made an account and I hadn’t got approved for anything yet, so I’m super excited! I just finished reading a book yesterday and you’ll be seeing a review soon!

 
Thanks for reading!
Bye
