Saturday Situation is hosted by both Lori at Pure Imagination and myself. It's a linky for you to link your book related Giveaways and Reviews (and whatever neglected posts you may have). You'll find the same linky's at Pure Imagination, so don't enter them twice!
Keep in mind that you can add your links through the entire week.
You can find this post again by clicking the button on the right side of my blog. I'll try to keep it up to date to go to the newest Saturday Situation post.
This week you need to head to Pure Imagination to link up as I decided I would still host kind of late and she couldn't grab the codes for me in time. Instead of using my own codes and them not being the same I figured you guys could just head over there instead.Candace's Update:
As many of you know I've been cutting back on blogging. Actually the plan was to take a break or stop completely. It's been a few weeks and I've been working through my review books and posting the reviews as I finish them. I've come to realize that I really do need to figure out something because blogging takes up more of my life then I thought. There was so much I wasn't thinking about, like the constant emails and the having to jump on the computer at all hours because I just remembered I needed to add something or email someone or do something related to blogging.
My blog has always been important to me. And I think perhaps it's been too important. I stress about everything being perfect, about posting everyday, about my reviews being good enough, about having the right content on the right days, etc. And while I loved having a schedule and knew what I wanted when, it was one more thing to worry about.
Now I haven't even mentioned the relief I've felt as the review books have slowed down. Like any reviewer checking the mail each day and listening for the UPS truck was part of my routine and source of considerable excitement. But along with it came more stress because the books just pile up and the push to read them gets to be one more thing to deal with. While I still have some coming in from publishers (due to being on lists mostly) they have really slowed down. And I've managed to read a few books I have owned for years and have been dying to read for all those years. Now that feels good.
I miss getting all those books in the mail and the excitement that comes with it but I have friends that send me books to read so it's not stopped (nor is going to) completely. Thank you awesome friends! I may also still get titles for review occasionally and I am a reviewer for other places as well (like amazon vine, librarything, etc).
I've worked on building my blog for years and I'm not wanting to let it go completely. I have devoted readers and I'd love to keep you all around. I'm not sure what the future holds for Candace's Book Blog but I think I'll continue to host Saturday Situation with Lori. I'm also thinking I'll do posts with mini reviews. I might have several listed with just one short paragraph of thoughts to go with each. I'm not sure quite yet. I do still have books for review so I will definitely have some reviews going up still but they won't be in normal Candace fashion, they will be short and sweet. Well, maybe not always sweet. ;) And I don't plan to post everyday.
I'm still working on things and figuring out what will work but I don't want to be gone completely. I just want to not have to stress about things, I don't want to have to write posts everyday or spend hours editing my own reviews. I don't want to have to get on the computer everyday just to keep up. So things might vary a bit around here but I hope you'll stick by!
