Tuesday

I know some of you were wondering.  After my 6 month hiatus, I somehow feel lost starting the blog back up.  I do exist, have existed, just haven't had the time to blog.  In short, life got complicated.  Over the past 6 months, I've taken two new jobs, both at different ends of the world (or so it feels like), have decided to get healthy (lost 60 lbs.), gained 10 back, haven't read as much, but also made more time for my family (the kids are getting big so fast), and pretty much got into a new daily rhythm.  It hasn't been easy.  But alas, I've made it out in one peace, sane of mind, and happy.  That's what matters right?!

Ok, so down to business.  I have no idea what's going on.  I mean, I've visited all my old daily blogs.  Some of you are there, some of you aren't.  I guess my life wasn't the only one to get complicated.  I updated all your cute blog buttons (check you out, on my sidebar).  But I was wondering what new blogs have popped up in the last 6 months that I should follow.  Suggestions...

Also, I see that so many of you are truly faithful followers and stuck around for those 6 months when there was complete and total silence on my end.  I can't tell you how grateful I am for that.  Some of you I never even got around to meeting.  Please introduce yourselves in a comment to this post with a link to your blog.  I would love to drop by and say hello.

I want to get the blog back up to snuff and will be reinstating the Bookcase of the Week feature.  Any of you interested in participating?  If so, please let me know.  I have to start somewhere, why not with your bookcases.

All in all, I'm glad to be back.  I was so happy to hear from some of you guys already.  I've missed blogging, missed book chatting, and missed you. 

Giveaways will also be reinstated soon.  I can't wait!!

Welcome Back! Your blog was one of the first ones I ever read on a regular basis, and you inspired me to start my own!
Also, congrats on the weight loss! Any magic pill(sign me up!), or just eat less move more?

We just became friends on GoodReads and I have just discovered your blog -- just in time for your exciting return! I'll be back =)

Kailana said...

Welcome back! I hardly blogged in 2008 and then it became hard to get back in the swing of things so when I did blog it was basically 'I am still alive posts'... It was 2009 before I got back in the swing of things. And, people stuck around, so bloggers are generally loyal. :)

Megan said...

I just found your blog and I'm so happy I did! It's so well put together and I really love your reviews. Total inspiration for a newbie like me :)

PS - congrats on the weight loss! I'm trying to do that too!

Danny said...

Welcome back! Sometimes we just need a little break from things. You'll get in the hang of things again ^.^

Congrats on losing 60 pounds! It's a lot of hard work (done it myself), but possible. Congrats again!

I'm a new follower of your blog and looking forward to future posts and reviews.

Welcome back! I had noticed there were no new posts but I feel like I was one of those people you never got to know. At any rate, I look forward to being able to read more of your posts soon.

And if you're still looking for people to feature on Bookcase of the Week I would love to participate.
