Well guys, it’s been a good three years, but this is the end of the road for ReadRantRock&Roll. Many of you already know it’s been a long time coming as we’ve discussed. In early July, this blog will close permanently.
There were many factors in my decision to leave, and after weighing the pros and cons it seems this is the best choice for me at this time.
When I started this blog I had so many ideas and felt very positive about interviewing authors and readers, writing book reviews, and sharing old books. Having a book blog felt rewarding. Unfortunately, the positive feelings have ceased. I can easily blame stats, difficulty in writing reviews, or even difficulties keeping up with content. I’m not going to get into all the reasons that brought me to this decision, but one of the main reasons is time. As I get older, and my kids continue to grow, I realize time is like gold. It takes too much time to keep up with everything—reading requests, writing reviews, reading reviews, Twitter—which in turn takes time away from my kids and other things I enjoy doing like reading books for pure enjoyment and spending time in nature. These things bring me more peace and less stress.
