Blogger Burnout & New Year Resolutions

Posted November 30, 2016 by Pixie in Imaginative Discussions, Pixie / 2 Comments

I feel like I made a post like this not too long ago… minus the New Year resolutions part. Hm. It’s certainly been a year, I’ll say that. I’m positive this is the first year I won’t make my GR reading goal, not even make 20 books at best, and I’ve been a member since 2010. This is the first year I haven’t blogged at least twice a week, lucky to blog maybe twice a month. It’s sad really. And I deeply apologize about that. When I made the decision to go back to school back in January for my Bachelor’s, I knew it was going to put a big ol’ YIELD sign on my schedule. School work was going to have to take the front seat and everything else had to hop in the back and wait its turn. School is rough, y’all. LOL. By the time I do get the spare moments, all I want to do is veg out on my couch in front of the television and chat on Twitter to people I’ve missed while I’d been buried in my assignments. I am reading, but very slowly, and then by the time I finish a book, I’m trying so hard to get the motivation to write a review after having typed a five page research paper. Lol. Blogger burnout is strong and real, but I’m working it out the best I can. Thank you for the continued patience. <3 <3

So, New Year resolutions? Already?! Wow.. You know what? I’m glad 2016 almost over. This year has been one stinking pile of shit. One great legend after another we lost. I hope it’s wiped off the history timeline. 2016: The year we should forget.

I don’t normally like doing the whole resolution thing because I feel like they just get broken anyway, but I thought I’d share a few (hopeful) goals I do have in mind for 2017:

Blog again more often
Read more (goal: 75+, read at least 2 with 850+ pages)
Finish my manuscript
Go back to NYC (BEA)
Get a new bookshelf
Publish (self? idk.)


What are some of your 2017 resolutions?

  1. No one can blame you for putting school first. Like I say, life happens. Blogging and reading are meant to be escapes. When they start feeling more like chores, it’s time to step back for a bit. I’m glad you’re starting to feel the itch to start both back up again, though.

    BEA is a thing that must become a thing, so we can do the thing together. 😀
