A Break, of Sorts

You may have noticed that there have been no new posts since the beginning of July. The main feature on the blog has been Featured Releases, and unfortunately I have not been seeing much engagement with it (there hasn't been a comment on the entire site since December). Combine that with some burnout, and I have decided to take a break for the month of July. I hope to come back with the posts in August, ideally with some new ways of reaching a wider audience.

Which brings me to topic two. Twitter has been my main promotion outlet for several years, and if you're over there you can see just how much it's falling apart. Instagram is the only other platform I'm active on and I'm trying to brainstorm ways that posts can be shared over there without taking away from the blog. Pictures and video are not my strong suit, and I don't want to pivot that direction, but I also know I need to meet people where they're at.

To end on an exciting note before I hide for another week, the eleventh anniversary of Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews is coming up! I accidentally missed the tenth anniversary last year as I was going into my final semester of college and had a few other things on my mind. I would like to make a big deal this year, so if there's anything you'd love to see, let me know!

In general going forward, I'm going to try to focus on doing and featuring what I love. If a type of post isn't bringing me joy, I will leave it behind. I hope you decide to join me as Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews enters its second decade.

  1. I've been blogging since 2011 and get burned out sometimes too. I haven't had as many people stopping by my blog in the last year and am reevaluating how I post too so it doesn't take so much work. I hope you come back in August or September more inspired. Natalie @ Literary Rambles
