Come this August, Coffee Tea Books & Me will celebrate its' ten year birthday. It seems my most often used phrase recently has been, "How did that happen?". But it is true and that is a lot of writing.
I must admit to experiencing blog burn out over the winter. I feel I'd done this and said that and what else is there to write about. However, the nice thing that comes from having your computer unavailable for a long period of time is that it helps you step away from blogging and remember what you enjoy and what you... do not.
So I'm doing some blog tweaking, starting with adding a post called Book Talk. I miss just chatting about books I'm reading without being concerned about how the post is worded as one has to do with an official book review.
I had that in mind when I started Recent Reading but I didn't care for that format, either. It required a lot of work to list everything I've been reading. So Book Talk will be chatting with you about one or two or three books (or magazine articles or podcasts) that I did not receive from a publisher to give an official review.
It is time to have fun with books again. Not that I'm giving up reviewing, I do enjoy that. But I have cut down on what I accept for awhile during the busy season. My first Book Talk will hopefully be on Thursday and will be written as I have books to talk about.
The second change is that I'm no longer doing an official My World this Week. It takes a whole lot of time and since I share the computer with my husband, I don't always have a long period of time to work with.
I will include favorite photos within posts and I'm on Instagram as @coffeeteabooksandme. All of those photos are taken with the iPad so for the most part, they are taken close to home.
Of course, the two weekend posts will continue as they are as long as something pops in my mind each week to write about. ;)
