15th - 21st - Have you ever thought about taking a break from blogging/Booktubing (if you're a Booktuber)? If you have, how long was the break and what did you learn from it? (submitted by Danielle @ PoetryBooksYA)

I have thought about taking a break from blogging. Like every week. LOL! It's more work than many people expect. 

While I haven't taken a blogging break, I have taken an extended break from posting book reviews on the blog. I found the stress and hassle from reviewing for book tours and individual review requests was taking the fun out of blogging for me. 

For example, a tour company sent me emails for months asking where my review was for a book. Each time, I said I hadn't received the book. The company never responded to my replies or sent me the book. 

I don't miss reviewing and the lack of reviews hasn't really impacted my blog reach. The time I freed up as been spent on other things like working on The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader. I haven't given up on reviews completely. I will be talking about the books I'm reading in a more casual format this summer.

Since my focus word for 2019 is connect, I have decided to replace the review writing time by participating in activities that connect me with other bloggers. For example, this month I started participating in this book blogger hop. You can check out my other hop posts here

About the Book Blogger Hop 

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
