Just thought I’d do a quick update on how things are going with me.
Today was the first day since some time in November that I felt I might actually be becoming human again! I’ve been so sick for so long… it’s just been a nightmare basically.
I’ve not read a solitary book since early December … this is going to be the latest date that I’ll complete my goodreads reading challenge in yeeeeeears (because I set it to one book each year lol!).
But why I’m here mainly is because I was just looking at my blog stats and, despite my absence from blogging for what seems like forever, they’re actually not terrible!
COLOUR ME SUPER SHOOK!
And can I just send a massive thank you to the 1,300+ of you who are still sticking with me and following my blog.
It’s incredibly humbling and means more than I could ever express to you all.
Especially because in the last few weeks I’ve been toying with the idea of giving up blogging altogether …. I just… things have been so tough, I haven’t been this sick in years… and thinking about my blog lying idle has been filling me with enormous guilt and dread. So I wondered should I just cut the cord and move on from blogging…
But just randomly looking at my blog stats tonight made me reappraise the situation. That maybe I do have something worthwhile to say because people have been listening. My goal with my blog has always been to reflect my own spoonie lifestyle through my book reviews. Because I think it’s important for #OwnVoices like mine to contribute to the narrative on chronic illness and disability.
So thank you for making this spoonie feel like she still has a place in the book community.
I can’t wait to get back to blogging in a more frequent fashion. Keep fingers, knees, and toes crossed that today was day one of my comeback and that by next week I might be ready to be back to my usual self.
Much love to you all,
