Sunday Post

 

Woohoo…I followed through. Right there is win since I usually get so bogged down with things following through is difficult. So what has happened this week. This week has been hectic.

Everyone finish their Christmas shopping?? I think I did…though most of it was for my 4 yr old. I am building him a Lego table. GO PINTEREST!!

Giveaway winners were picked 🙂 Both for the big Holiday giveaway and any extra small ones through November and December I didn’t get a chance to pick winners for.

I found that Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer hosts a sunday post meme. So woohoo…I like joining other blogs fun things.

Cezanne and I are taking a break until the New Year, we will probably be back January 5th. We want to read and do other things other than sit in front of our computers. There will be posts up. Most likely reviews since we are going to spend the down time catching up plus reading books we want to review. You are going to see in the 2015 that we are taking a step back. Cezanne and I want to get back to blogging for fun. Writing reviews for books we want to read and cutting down on the promo stuff. It has all gotten too much. Our email box never stops pinging and we feel like we are letting down the authors we really do want to promote. I think it is sometimes forgotten that bloggers are people. Cezanne and myself are both moms to 4 yr old little boys. We both have many family responsibilities and blogging is our escape from the insanity. Then blogging became more insane than our real life and it became too much. So we are stepping back and getting back to why we loved this.

I am also going to stop trying to buy my followers love. This is personal for me. In the last year I made numbers my life. How many FB fans do we have? How many subscribers do we have? Why does no one pay attention to us? Why don’t people visit the actual blog? I was driving myself insane and broke. Broke? How did you become broke? Easy, I kept doing giveaways that realistically I could not afford. I do not ask authors for things. I never have. If then offer then of course I will help but normally no. Everything comes out of mine and Cezanne’s pockets. Pockets that are not that deep. So no more. I will still do giveaways but just not as many and only when I know I can afford it. NO MORE BUYING PEOPLE’S LOVE…hehe 🙂

If you do not want to visit us…ok. If means that we can’t get ARC’s or things because we do not have enough followers…ok. We buy enough personal books to give reviews for years. I hope this does not sound mean or bitchy since I am neither. I am just…tired.
