Important Update

Hello friends!

You may have noticed that things have slowed down here lately. Part of that was because I was on vacation. Part of it is because of life. I’m going to be real and admit that I have been struggling. I work a full time job when I’m not reading. Its been really hard trying to juggle a full time job that doesn’t have a set schedule, my marriage, family, friendships, reading, reviewing, and blogging.

Running this blog, reviewing all the books, and interviewing the authors has been a lot of fun for me, but at some point, it has ceased to be as much fun as it used to be and has become work. I thought that I had it worked out, but then I kept thinking I could handle more. I have a very hard time saying no. I kept saying yes every time I was asked about reviewing something. I absolutely love supporting authors! That hasn’t changed.

I’ve noticed lately that my tank has run dry. I’ve poured so much of myself out and don’t have much coming back in. Between the stress from work and the bit of stress from agreeing to too much, I just can’t keep up anymore. I also need to be more present in my marriage and with friends and family. For that reason I will be giving up blogging for now. I will also be cutting back on my reviewing too.

I’m still going to honor all the commitments that I made through the end of this year. I will still be supporting all of my author friends in other ways. You can still find me on Facebook and Instagram. I’ll still be reading and sharing some reviews on Goodreads.

This isn’t good-bye, just see you later.

  1. Good for you, Kailey!! It’s so hard to pull back from things – especially things we love so much! But you’re choosing yourself here. Choosing to value how you spend your time and efforts.

    It’s such a difficult balance but I hope you discover works the best for you❤️

    P.S. I had the most random thought the other day – “Oh my word, did I ever send Kailey The Red Canary?!” I legit can’t remember 😂 I’m too young for this. Anyways please tell me I sent you the book. If I didn’t I owe you a gazillion apologies…and a book!

  2. We all feel that need to slow down some. I love reading and reviewing and I have cut back some too. I have let some books slide on by because I just don’t have the time. I love the authors! Brenda

  3. Good for you! That voice can be hard to listen to when you’re doing things you really love. I’ve appreciated everything you’ve done over the years to support me as an author. It’s my honor to support you as a fellow wife, mom, employee, friend, etc. Saying “I hear you, Lord” can never go wrong! Praying for balance for you. HUGS!
