For the last several months, my posting has decreased significantly. It's not that I'm too busy to write reviews or that I'm not reading. I guess I don't enjoy it anymore. I'm not deleting my blog because this may be a temporary break and I may feel differently in a couple of months. I still plan on keeping my books read page up to date but I will probably just write short reviews on Library Thing. I can always post those to twitter, so really no loss for anyone interested in what I'm reading. sI sill try to read others posts but no promises.
I think part of the blogging issue is that I am having social media burnout. I use to love twitter. I would have conversations with people about books and other stuff. But now my twitter stream seems to be an endless stream of Get glue, tumblr, pinterest, facebook, goodreads. People will write a review, link it to all these other sites and then feed that to twitter. So I will see several tweets about the same review. Or someone tweets something, links to tumblr or goodreads, which when you click on the link says the same thing that was just tweeted. I don't care what people are watching with 1000 other people on get Glue. I don't care about who has Klout for what. I have 400+ followers but rarely does anyone respond to something I say. Why the hell are they following me? Because they want me to follow back and then buy what they are selling. I'm not deleting my twitter account because again, I may not always feel this way, plus, amongst all the crap I do find some good book recommendations. I'll peruse but likely not interact much. Now there seems to be a lot of talk of pregnancy and while I'm happy for those people, a daily play by play of their pregnancy issues, makes me want to kill myself. I haven't started Downton Abbey yet, so I have to avoid those spoilers.
So what I once loved now just mostly annoys me. So I'll keep my distance until either I lose the grumpies or people get bored with all those annoying sites.
Bye for now!
