Sorry that I as a Gabi haven’t posted as much as I used to. My head has been all over the place these last few weeks that sometimes I just don’t have the mental energy to grab a book of my TBR shelf and read. I have been planning a whole bunch of stuff for the new year and I am excited to share it with all of you.
As some of you may know a couple weeks ago Deanna and I posted a survey for y’all about BooksABlog and what you wanted to see here. A lot of you said that you love reading reviews and some tags but most of you said that you love our rants and discussions. This took me by surprise. Rants is something that is not planned, and to be honest I don’t like planning something. In person, I’m very shy with my feelings. On the outside I’m outgoing, fun, and a unicorn, but sometimes I do have problems and I can’t express how I’m feeling towards these problems. I think for me its easier to write it out, than actually speak. So I decided to help myself out. I’m going to expand BooksABlog. I’m making it more personal both for me and Deanna, but also for the readers. I see you guys comment a lot more on our rants, and you tell us of how you relate to it and that brings a smile to my face that I’m not the only one that feels a certain way.
There are a number of stuff that we have in store for y’all. Of course we are still going to be a book blog, that will never change. Instead of change we’ll call it expand. First thing. If you follow us on Twitter you may know that Deanna and I decided to change the blog’s name. The main reason that we decided to change it was because we didn’t like it. When I first started out blogging I had no creativity whatsoever and no idea of all of these awesome sauce names that people used for their blogs so I went with the simple name BooksABlog. But now since we are expanding we have thought long and hard on a title for this amazing blog. So many ideas went through are head! Yet finally we decided on something. A little fun fact me and Deanna both LOVE musical theatre and my absolute favorite song from musical theatre is Singing in the Rain, so may I present the new name for BooksABlog…
Reading in the Rain!
Catchy huh 😉
The actual domain won’t be changed for a bit, but when it does its actually going to be www.readinginrain.com
I am so excited! January is jam packed so far! I have so many posts scheduled and I am so excited for all of them! I have a whole bunch of reviews coming your way, and I am excited to get out of this “blogging slump” and start a new.
Going more in depth to the personal posts as I was talking about earlier. The teenage years are different for everyone. Deanna and I are both going through are teenage years and I feel like books were the way out of these teenage years for both us. I can’t speak on behalf of Deanna, but I feel like I need to express my feelings. I need to talk about what I am dealing with. I need to help myself. Blogging is going to help, as it always did,
Now to end this first post of the new year, I want to say thanks. Blogging has changed my life in a way that I could never imagine it. The community has been my right hand. I can’t tell you how much I love this community. They help me, they talk to me, they make me smile and laugh. I can’t thank them enough. To the readers of BooksABlog…well Reading in the Rain 😉 I am very thankful for all of you. Just seeing that one comment on one post saying how they relate or how they loved the review or how they need to read this book really brightens up my day. And of course the people who are not online but still support me. My friends and family. I love you all and I can’t thank you enough for your support.
Happy New Years booknerdigans! Hope 2016 is a great year for y’all 🙂
