Hola! I’m Back From Hiatus

Posted July 26, 2017 by Brin in Updates / 6 Comments

Hola guys, I’ve finally returned and am wearing a whole new set of clothes (so to speak). πŸ˜‰ I know it’s been a while (a looooong while actually) but I’m back and raring to go!

New Look, New Attitude

I have been severely neglecting my blog so I thought it was time to give it a new makeover with designs from the lovely Blog Pixie – after seeing her gorgeous blog I was so inspired that I purchased some new design elements from her shop and I have been working away at incorporating them into a whole new look for Brin’s Book Blog.

I’m rather happy with the result (and completely over-the-moon with the purchases – I would highly recommend checking out Vanessa’s store – she has some really stunning, feminine designs that just spoke to me and my aesthetic goals).

I really want to get back into blogging again and I have so missed the awesome bookish community over the last couple of months. I have also been really bad at not responding to comments here on the blog *hangs head in shame* – if anyone has commented and I haven’t responded I am so sorry – I really have no excuse at how lax I have gotten recently. I’m going to try to get it right going forward. πŸ™‚

I hope to catch up soon with all my favourite blogging peeps and get to know some of the newer bloggers that I may have missed in my (long) absence. I missed interacting with other blogger so much!!

I’m hoping to get back to posting on a (semi) regular basis and sharing my love of books and other nerdy things! I also want to get posting about vintage young adult books again (I have actually read a fair few this year) and I’m excited about sharing these (almost) forgotten classics with you all.

It’sΒ adiΓ³s for now but I will be posting more shortly. It’s great to be back!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    LOL, haven’t we all, at some point? I have written a grand total of 14 posts so far this year. FOURTEEN! Your average number of monthly posts for a really active blog ;). Though there shouldn’t be rules about that, and blah and blah, and I totally agree there shouldn’t, but 2 posts per month is kind of embarassing…

    Of course, life gets in the way. It always does. Mine has become very, very good at that. I suppose yours did, too. Also, one feels tired sometimes, even deflated. It happens. No shame in waiting for the right moment and sitting idle for a while.

    I plan on being more active starting next month, or maybe in September (it depends on a few things I have to tend to)…and I do hope to see more of you around as well. In the meantime, welcome back!

      Thanks Roberta! I know what you mean – life does tend to get in the way. πŸ™‚

      Hopefully we both get our mojo back – looking forward to seeing your posts in the near future. <3

  2. First of all: I love your Moriarty gif (why didn’t I think of that??). And second: Welcome back! πŸ™‚ I just rejoined the blogging community two days ago and now it seems so many bloggers from the blogs I follow are coming back, too. πŸ™‚

    Your new theme looks stunning! I haven’t been quite happy with the looks of my blog in a long while now, so I’m going to check out Blog Pixie right away πŸ™‚

      Thanks Yasmine! Glad to see you back too – it seems like we have both been suffering from a touch of blogging-burnout and needed a break for a bit. πŸ™‚ Lol, yeah I couldn’t resist the Moriarty gif – I just love him and it seemed fitting. πŸ˜‰

      Thanks – I’m pretty happy with how the new design turned out. Vanessa does have some really lovely themes and design packs – I would highly recommend checking her site out. <3

  3. Welcome back! We’re currently working on a new design ourselves, so I totally understand the excitement of new things. WHEE.

      Thanks Inge. <3

      It's pretty exciting working on a new design, I try and not change it up too much (was guilty of that before) but sometimes a fresh new look is necessary. I'm looking forward to seeing your new design. πŸ™‚
