April is almost half over already?
Aren't they pretty???
I apologize for the radio silence. March is a tough month and busy too. My twins have a birthday and my Dad's is two days later. With every birthday comes the reminder that he is not with us and it causes me, my sisters and my mother great sadness. Therefore much of March was spent distracting my Mom and myself. The other part of March was spent planning and executing a Birthday party for the twins and also getting ready for Easter.
As I have mentioned before, I have been contemplating quitting. At this time, I have decided not to. I have decided that some changes are needed though.
First, as I have mentioned before, I have a problem with accepting too many reviews and being frustrated. I am going to try to start scheduling more interviews, guest posts, and such instead of mostly all reviews.
Second, when June and July comes, I am going to really scale back and more or less take a vacation. There will be some prescheduled posts but mostly the posts will be random and sparse. I want to spend more time with my kids and being active. Also, and possibly the biggest reason for wanting this break, I have many books that I've purchased and they are just sitting on the shelf. I have no time to read them because of all the reviews that I agree to. This way I can actually take my time and enjoy reading what I want. I will still post reviews but I will have no time schedule to worry about. :-)
Third, I have decided that I will still offer the CIG but will no longer take the time to enter the info into the Rafflecopter. I will just take every comment into account and at the end of the month they will each be entered and a winner will be picked. I will still give credit for shares as well! This will save me time too. There are usually only a few of you that actually take part so this should be no big deal.
I have not been myself lately and I am working at fixing things. I think these changes will help me. I hope that they do not trouble you.
What do you think????
I really would like to know. :-)
Do you have any spring plans?
