December beginnings and GGMMMU Answers At Last!

Happy December! It is hard to believe that this year is almost over. I'll keep you updated but I am considering either taking a break from blogging or quitting after next month. 

There are so many changes taking place that I can't keep up. Every day I hear more but I have no idea where to find out this information. I still haven't even figured out how to fix the problem with not receiving notifications when people comment on the posts. :-(

I don't know about all of you, but I am not even receiving as many visitors each day as I was. In addition to issues with the blog, it is the same on Facebook.

I just feel like I am wasting my time. Who am I and why should anyone want to hear my opinion anyway? I guess you could say that I am a little down in addition to being frustrated.

It all started with the complications with the GGMMMU.

  1. I'm sorry the last year ( months) have been hard on you and i could totally understand you wanting a break but pplease don't stop completely if the only reason is that you feel like your opinion don't matter and that we don't care for your posts.... it would be totally false.

    I'm sorry there were less people this year buit it's not you it seems general and i really enjoy discovering books thansk to your opinion . it's matter a lot for me and i'm sure i'm not the only one. ( Amber cames less but for medical and technifcal reason not mack of interest)

    i will try to find a way to help you with the email/ comment notifications, not sure how but i will try

    Really i love your blog and even more you so please don't forget that.

    Oh i'm not opn facebook so sadly i can help you there but i did visit ( if that helps somehow) i can visit not like or comment but i could visit each day if that help you

    Please don't give up for bad reason.... i understand you can be tired, frustrated and everything... you could post less too if you want what it's essential is that reading stay a pleasure ( and sharing about books too) so a break if needed, adjustement if needed read only want you want too just remember that you are wonderful AND loved

    ( thank you for the answers to the GGMMMU)

    1. Sorry that it took so long to give you the answers!

      I'm not certain what I'll do. I was just tossing it out there. I didn't want to just up and quit or cut back without at least giving a warning.

      I'll keep you posted whatever I decide to do. I have posts scheduled through January and a few in February so nothing will change at least until then if at all.

      Thank you very much for all of the support. :-)

    2. it's nothing really and don't feel bad because you took time getting teh answers is great but it was not urging either so having them at the end of the month is good as it remind us the GGMMMU

      you can count on us you know

  2. Oh sweetie don't leave completely! But I can completely understand taking a break.
    The comment thing is something to do with gmail and blogger not accepting yahoo I think. I've noticed I get the bounce back email when I comment on my own blog. I've just started going to the comment section on my blogger page and reading there to see if I missed any and not just relying on my emails to tell me.
    I'd say keep blogging a little and maybe take a break from CIG or something? just read and review what you want and don't put the pressure on yourself. Either way I completely support you. I found you through your blog but that's not why Im friends with you so I respect whatever you would like to do.
    I'll be trying to share more and more for you and hopefully that can help some.
    And thanks for the answers. I was wondering on a couple of them. :) Got some wrong but it was fun trying.

  3. Love your blog! Please don't quit completely. You put a lot of hard work and effort into this site, so I can understand your frustration and why you need a break.
    Thanks for the answers to the GGMMMU. I really enjoyed it. It was a fun and challenging contest and I look forward to next year's event.
