I've been silent these past few weeks.
In part it is due to an incredibly busy schedule. For some reason every October catches me off-guard: too many activities in too few days. Do you experience the same?
I wonder if it is because I anticipate the busyness of the holidays in November and December, but I don't expect it to start as early as October...
Anyway, that is only half the excuse.
The other half is because I am waffling (again) on the focus of this blog. I just can't seem to get away from the idea that it is a book blog, even though my life is more varied now than it was in 2009 when I first started The Nook.
I have done a lot of pondering lately - and journaling - and questioning. And ultimately I have decided to branch out.
My Cozy Book Nook will remain a book blog. I still love to read (and write) and I love this community. I hope to post more book reviews in the future - focusing on children's and middle grade literature. I also plan to post some articles on writing - both my own personal endeavors as well as my teaching adventures. This will be my literary hangout.
I have also started a new blog, Revising Life after 50, which will focus on my other interests, namely journaling, leaving a legacy, and navigating this second half of life. I'd love to have you join me there, if you feel so inclined.
So I'm back... again.
I hope to be more consistent in my postings and more visible around the book blogosphere. I have roots here. This is home.
