I started this blog over 3 years ago with the intention of meeting new people, keeping my brain stimulated, and getting back in touch with the literary world. Thanks to an easy-to-use platform, a social media landscape like Twitter, and, of course, all the lovely bloggers that continued to reach out, I've achieved all of these things to a greater degree than I had ever imagined. It's been wonderful.
The past year brought in so many changes, and while these haven't prevented me from blogging about books, they've certainly captured my wandering mind leaving less time for reading and reviewing. A couple of weeks ago I threw the feeling out, on Twitter, that I was somewhat tired of maintaining a blog that revolved around books and wanted to incorporate all sorts of new topics for discussion. Everyone seemed to more than supportive and thought it was a great idea. Since I've already been adding a little here and there from the beginning, I thought I'd go ahead and take the plunge.
You'll notice that I've redesigned the site (and have lost the lovely literary header). I'm still in the process of brainstorming names and reviewing logos, but soon this will be a whole new space. Travel tips and photos. Recipes and reviews. Beauty and fashion. And the occasional feminist, scholarly discussion. All of this and more will be living and breathing here.
Of course, I'm still going to talk books. Reading is an important part of my life, and readers are always worth knowing, so let's connect.
I'm not going to call this new space a lifestyle blog, even though that's probably what anyone else would say, but think of it as a place to share ideas and then hear what you have to say!
Hopefully you'll stick with me through this change and watch me grow in a whole new direction. If not, I'll be so sad to see you go and do appreciate all the support through the Bookworm Meets Bookworm years.
So... here's to a new year, a new me!
