April 2014: A Month in Review, and BEA plans

Grace Troxel 4 May, 2014 About My Blog 6 comments

April was a strangely unproductive blogging month for me.  I was mostly absent from the blogosphere, and the vast majority of my posts were ones that were scheduled well in advance.  Here are my reviews for the month:

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and overscheduled lately.  Not just here, but in my day-to-day life.  I’ve spent too much time having a social life, and because I don’t know how to say no to people, I’ve been sorely lacking introvert time to read/relax/breathe.  I’ve fallen behind in the Words of Radiance groupread, and even though I meant to catch up this weekend, I just didn’t have the time or energy.

Basically, I need a vacation, which is why I’m glad that Book Expo America is right around the corner.  I’m planning to go to NYC for a few days to go to the conference, but also to give myself a much-needed break.  If any bloggers are going and want to split a hotel room, send me an e-mail for more details (no axe murderers, please).  I’ll probably be going down Wednesday and coming back Sunday.  If any of you are planning on going to BEA, let me know so we can make plans to meet up.  :)

    It’s a bit daunting when you take on too much isn’t it? I do have another readalong after WoR but it’s quite an easy going schedule and no real hosting type duties – I think after that a bit of a scheduling holiday is needed!
    Hope you have fun at BEA. ‘no axe murderers’!
    Lynn :D

      It is. I think I got too ambitious for a while and burned myself out. I’m trying to jump back into the swing of things though. :)

    Do axe murderers say that they are axe murderers? If they do, that gives me some respect for them. Only some. Hope you get some rest. Blogging should be fun, not a chore. enjoy NY

      I’d hope they’d at least be honest about it, although I doubt that there are very many book bloggers who are also axe murderers. :P

      Will do. It’s pretty much a book blogger’s Mecca, and there will be a quiet hotel to return to when I’m done with crowds. :)
