I’m quitting book blogging. Thank you for everything.

Well, the title says it all, really: I’m quitting book blogging.

Welcome to Read Think Ponder v.3!

Hi everyone! 😘 I am back!

I am so happy and so relieved to finally launch my blog’s new look. I worked super hard on this, and, for once, I finally feel like I’ve designed a blog look that is distinctly me. I hope you all like it, and I can’t wait to start blogging again.

My time away from my blog allowed me to think a lot about what sort of book blogger I wanted to be and what sort of content I wanted to produce. So, with this revamp, there will be some changes — and stay tuned, because there’s a giveaway as well!

Hiatus – with hopes of returning

Hello friends. I hope all of you are well, and, as always, that you are reading a delightful book.

Starting today, I will be going on an indefinite hiatus.

There are several reasons for this, so, without making this a terribly long post, I thought I would share them with you:

1. I need to focus on university and my research.

I think everyone can relate to this. I’m also conducting research, which is really cool and something I’m really excited about. As I enter June, I’ll be bringing all the data together and will be running analyses and writing up my results (which sounds like oodles of fun). I’ve also been let on that this research may offer great opportunities for me and team, so I want to do the best I can.

2. I want to revamp my blog.

I think my blog can be so much better than it currently is, so I am going to revamp it. I’ve talked to a few bloggers (you know who you are; thank you) and have come to the decision that revamping my blog will give me the energy that I need. However, because of #1, revamping won’t be in the cards for awhile or it will be a very slow process.

3. I want to focus more on my art.

I’ve started drawing more frequently now, and I’m really enjoying it and it has been very rewarding. I recently started an Instagram, and I’m going to be more active there! Follow me there if you’d like to see more of my art, follow me!

Merry Christmas!


I hope you all had/have a lovely and relaxing Merry Christmas or a very happy holiday!

Today, I spent quality time with my family and partner and because it is summer in New Zealand, we celebrated by having a BBQ with extended family.

Whatever you do today, spend it with the people you love and care about most. ❤ Have a splendid day, friends!
