I don’t know how many of you are aware of this, but this blog started out back in 2007 as simple personal blog. My idea was to share my misadventures whilst being a brazilian girl, living in Israel. I could never be very constant with posting, especially since I had no audience to write to, so I just wrote a few posts through those first 2 years of this blog’s life, but I am extremely proud of them! If you guys want to take a look at my earlier stuff, check out the “Getting Personal” tab =D There I tell funny and weird stories and even pour my heart out many of times.
I bet right now you are wondering, why the hell am I writing about this and what is this post about, aren’t you?
Well, the thing is that I hate the fact that I have been letting the blog slip. I miss the days when I had 3 or 4 reviews a week, not to mention other posts I had a lot of fun writing. However, as many of us bloggers know, real life sometimes gets in the way and as much as we love reading and blogging, we do have other responsibilities that come first.
When I first started Book blogging, I was simply a student and I had much more control over my free time, so I tended to read as many as TWO books a day when possible and I could make the choice to just blow off classes. As an example of my obsession at the time, my book reading record was 365 books in 2009. Something I am well aware I cannot do again LOL.
Nowadays, I have a very steady and busy job, where I am constantly on demand and many kids and teens depend on me. I LOVE my job, but my reading and blogging time have been cut down so much that it makes me sad at times. One of the things I have missed the most is the exchange of thoughts between me and my readers.
That is why I decided to create this new feature. This will be like a diary for me, a place where I can share thoughts, ideas, stories, books and my journey/battle to lose weight and be healthier. I will also leave questions bellow each post and will try to incorporate your answers in the following post... How does that sound?
I don’t plan to write daily, but it will be more constant than once a week and I hope you guys will enjoy my random thoughts and stories =)
