Blog Hiatus

Well, things have been rather sparse around these parts lately. I have to admit, I've been having a bit of an ol' identity crisis, blog-style. I was a little tired of doing the same things each week, and only getting comments on meme posts. Also, I have a very busy life, with a job I love, two adorable (but tiny and needy) children, a husband I'd really like to spend time with, and hobbies outside of reading and blogging. So for about the last month, I've just shoved this internet space into the back of my mind and not thought about it. I slowed down on trying to keep up with blogs I follow, and thought about what I wanted to accomplish with this site.

I still read some great YA books during that time, because by preference and profession that's what I do. And, lo and behold, I found myself wanting to post reviews and talk about them with people. That was the test, to make sure that I really did want to keep this space active and wasn't just doing it out of habit.

So how will I move forward? Well, I'll probably use this week to try and sort out a new system. More reviews, more random posts, fewer memes. But definitely still the Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop - I really truly enjoy those and would miss them! I want to make this a more personal space - still about books, but without feeling like I couldn't post about my life and outside activities if the mood struck.

Cute, but distracting!

So, that's the State of the Scattered Bookshelf. Hope to be seeing you soon!
