That Blogging Thing I Used to Do

Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Hey, remember when I said in October that I was returning to blogging? And then I blogged maybe once before disappearing yet again? Well, about that...

Whoops.


In hindsight, it was ridiculous to think I could handle NaNoWriMo and a return to blogging in November. November, the month during which every professor assigns papers, exams, and presentations all before you head into finals. I realized how fruitless this plan was halfway into the month and at that point, I was not giving up on NaNo.

I won NaNo (yayayayay!) but that meant I had to continue my hiatus on the blog. At this point, I was starting to ask myself, do I even want to blog anymore? I haven't been really present in months, barely anyone is going to read this post, and I don't even know what my blogging friends are up to anymore since I haven't really kept in touch with them. While I'll definitely get back in touch with my friends, I had to ask: is it worth it to keep blogging?


I was this close to saying no. But the truth is I'm not ready to give up blogging. If I have to start from the ground up again then I will because I love talking about books with all of you. I love nerding out and having a space where I can just have fun.


So here's the plan as I head into a New Year of Blogging:


1. Say Hi

Reconnect with people! I'll say hi to my old bloggy friends who I've stupidly neglected (waves at Alicia) and make some new ones!

2. Have Fun

The Page Sage is a pressure-free zone. On here there is no need to be perfect- I just get to write and read and have a good time doing it.

3. Post What I Want

Was there a cool episode of Supernatural I want to talk about, even though it isn't bookish? I'm going to do it. This is my blog, after all- if I want to talk to you guys about something I'm allowed to do that (though it will still be mostly bookish).

4. Have Fun.

This one is important, so I'm listing it twice.



That's the plan anyway. I hope you're all gearing up for a happy holiday and that you get lots and lots of books!

Talk to you guys soon. :)

  1. I thought about quitting too, but I wasn't ready either. I'm slowly getting back into it, but I'm sucking at the visiting other blog part. Hope to see you around more <3

  2. I understand what you mean ^^ I was so "strict" with my way to blogging these past years. Now I do what I want do to ! Writing about TV Shows instead of books and so on ! It's better that way !
    Bloguer sans aucune pression ! Se sentir libre dans ses articles ! And I always love your P&R gifs o/

  3. Helloooo! Don't feel pressured about blogging. I've finally graduated university, but during school I definitely lacked in posts. It's all about having fun, and no matter if you need a break or post a zillion times, we're here and will always flail about books (and also tv shows :) )!!!
