Some of you have probably noticed that the list of Life of a Blogger subjects has run out. There’s a few reasons for that:
1. I have no more ideas for topics. I just want to thank all of you who submitted all those awesome topics used in the past. You guys rock! There were a lot of topics that I didn’t use, mainly because they were closely related to a topic that had already been done, or because it was too closely related to bookish things (I wanted LoaB to be more about your personal life, completely non book related), or because it just didn’t feel right for my feature. I still appreciate all of those suggestions, though!
2. I’m not invested anymore. I’m honestly kind of burned out on the feature. It ran strong for over a year, and I had a lot of fun doing it, but now I’m kind of just…done. I don’t have the time or energy anymore to visit every participant to comment, and I think that’s unfair to all of you who put in the work to be part of the feature. I feel like I’m slacking with it, and it’s not getting the attention it deserves. I’ve also been writing the posts later and later (as I’m sure some of you have noticed), and I don’t have the motivation to schedule them in advance anymore. It’s become a chore, and that’s definitely not what I want.
3. I’m not getting much participation. I feel like no one really cares about it anymore, and it just seems like waste of time. I used to have 20-30 participants, and now it’s dwindling to no more than 7 or 8. It seems to me as if everyone else is getting sick of it, too.
I want to thank all of you wonderful people who have participated in this feature even once in the past year and a half, and I want to give a special thank you to those that have stuck with it for 10-20 weeks: Rosie @ Rosie Reads, Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads, Kelly @ Effortlessly Reading, Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun, Angie @ Pinkindle, Michelle @ Because Reading, Shannon @ Rex Robot Reviews, Beverley @ My Senses Come to Life, Bernadette @ The Bumbling Bookworm, Franny @ Mind Reader, and Kelly @ Dandelion Dreams.
I also want to give a huge thank you to Katrina @ Chased by My Imagination, Sylvia @ Darkest Sins, and Evolet @ Wet Panty Stories for sticking with me for almost an entire year, and also the biggest and most special thank you of all to Tabitha @ Bows and Bullets because Tabitha has been with me for every single week since the feature started. Thank you so much Tabitha, you rock! <3
I had a wonderful time hosting Life of a Blogger for 72 weeks and I’m sad to see it go. Again, thank you to everyone who made the feature possible! I love you guys!
