Help! I need rescuing!


That is me.
Well, to be fair, my mountain is not all paper-work, but the sentiment is true. As such, I've become progressively more behind in my blogging. And it was starting to get to me. I was starting to panic by the growing amount of non-reviewed books on my desk, and the number of posts in my Google Reader (did you know that when you hit 1000, they stop counting??). I've decided that this is not healthy, and that feeling guilty about not having updated my blog is ridiculous. It is, after all, merely one thing on my to-do list.
So! To that end, I have made a decision - poor little JOMPy is taking a holiday.
Musing Mondays will continue to be posted, but for the most part I won't be blogging again until January. I am wiping the slate clean on owing reviews (except, of course, for the few ARCs I have), and will be starting fresh next year. There will probably be the usual end-of-year challenge summaries and sign ups - and of course I'll be around to wish you all a Merry Christmas - but other that that I'll be going into temporary blogging hibernation.
I do apologise to those of you whom I haven't been commenting on. I haven't forgotten you!

Good luck with the cleaning and refreshing you need to do! MMs will continue despite your hiatus so that's good!

Wishing you well,

Do what you need to do. Why make blogging a stressful duty? Everyone seems to go through this and we'll all still be here when you feel rejuvenated. Take care and most of all, don't feel guilty about not blogging or commenting.

I agree with Kaye - we all started our blogs because it was something enjoyable. If it becomes a burden, that isn't good for anyone. Have a pleasant sabatical, enjoy the holidays, and we'll see you after the first of the year.

I finally got my Google Reader somewhat under control and I have a plan to get all my reviews posted before the end of the year. I'm so proud! I've been behind all year long

Girl, don't sweat it! no worries on my end ever. Clear out that google reader and take a break. YOu will come back refreshed and recharged.
This time of the year is always good to take stock and clean things out. Know what I mean? I'll drop you an email anyway, just to check in and say hi ya!

we will all be extra busy until the new year no doubt and will all be here after 2010 begins.

I feel like that right now! See you in January.

I wish you luck. If my google reader goes above 1000+, I simply delete the posts. No other way.

Take care of yourself first! Have a Happy Holiday.

Well, we will miss you. But I understand the need to step back and take a break. I'll look forward to seeing you back in January when you will hopefully be refreshed and without a pile of worry hovering over you.
