Evening folks! It’s Sunday evening again and time for another round of the week’s posts on RobAroundBooks for the benefit of anyone who may have missed a post or two. Apologies for the tail off towards the end of the week. I was playing nursemaid to both wife and daughter, who both came down with a nasty dose of the flu (thankfully not swine-flavoured – Heaven forbid):
That’s the round up of the posts for another week my fellow reading lovelies. But before I close I just want to say a word or two.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve sensed that things have gone a bit flat around RobAroundBooks. Sure I’m still keeping up a fair post count, but it feels as though many of these posts have an empty flatness to them, with a subtle air of ‘rushed’.
Even worse, I’ve also been feeling a bit flat myself lately; as though my enthusiasm has dropped a notch or two, which for me is kind of heartbreaking. Why? Well RobAroundBooks exists solely as a portal for me to promote a passion for books and reading ( I have zero commercial ambition), and this promotion of reading is ‘fueled’ solely by own bookish passion. If I can’t keep my enthusiasm at 110% then I’m not achieving what I set out to achieve in the first place, and that upsets me, massively.
I know where the real problem lies though, and it’s that blight of most bloggers, a virtual block in the ‘fuel line’ known as ‘lack of time’. Quite simply I’m not finding the time I need to achieve what my heart and soul wants to achieve with RobAroundBooks, and it’s all a bit frustrating really.
Why am I telling you all this? Mainly to make you aware that I’m aware that RobAroundBooks isn’t whizzing around the blogosphere with the same amount of gusto that it was a few weeks ago. But I don’t want you to lose faith. Instead I want to reassure you that I’m well and truly on the case. And if it takes every nerve and cell in my bookish body to find the time I need to get RobAroundBooks to where I want it to be, then every nerve and cell I will employ. Expect to see big improvements!
So have a great upcoming reading week then folks, and thanks to each and every one of you who visited RobAroundBooks over the past seven days. Even bigger kudos to those who have also taken the extra time and effort to connect with me personally, either through the comments or directly by email. It goes without saying that I appreciate you all!
