Getting back on my feet...

For months now—more like almost 2 years—I've wanted to kick this blog back into motion. Every time I think about it though I get cold feet. Mostly I think it centers around branding. While I have no intention of making this blog anything worthy of actually making an effort at branding, I don't like half-assing things like this. Since I was learning to read and write 25 years ago I've known writing was going to always be an important part of my life. Not just making lists or pen-pal letters but as a way to communicate ideas, imaginings and hopefully ways that make the world less lonely.

Though my book blog is very much focused on my true passion it doesn't really allow me to get off-topic much. Sometimes I really want to talk about my pets or a craft I want to try, a recipe I made up or even something as stupid as sharing my enthusiasm for a new word our toddler is saying. Lately I've also been diving into non-fiction books and children's reading that isn't fitting to my regular book blogging. Afterall, I don't think many of my paranormal romance readers would care about great books for Potty Training. Maybe that's essentially what I'm missing right now... a certain amount of freedom to get random in my topics. To share with others—or at least just be publishing articles about—my passion for my family and our life together.

With school out for the summer I'm busier in some ways and less busy in others. I can't say whether I will have time to write for this blog everyday any more than I could say the same for RhiReading but it feels good just to be opening myself back up to it. To take some of these ideas and thoughts that have been closeted up in the back of my mind for months and do something with them. I don't even care if I end up with an audience here commenting on my reading. It'd just be great to explore another part of myself and keep writing!
