Announcements, ALA, and a Brief Hiatus

Posted June 26, 2015 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Miscellaneous/Announcements / 10 Comments

Hello my lovely readers! I hope your summer is off to a great start! Mine certainly is, but it’s a bit of a bittersweet blessing.

Here’s The Sitch

I am lucky enough to be going on a two week vacation that starts with ALA this weekend, traveling across country the next, and visiting my hometown and reconnecting with family members the week after that. However, due to so much travel and limited internet access, I am going to be going on a very brief two week hiatus from Friday, June 26- Friday July 10. It’s a decision that I really struggled with because since starting my blog a year and a half ago, I have never taken more than a few days off from blogging. Originally I thought about scheduling a bunch of posts for when I was gone, but I like being able to interact with comments and readers when my posts go live as much as possible. Coupled with the fact that I’ve been busy the past 3 weeks with a new work assignment I haven’t been able to be as active in the blogosphere as much as I usually am, so I decided to lessen the pressure on myself and enjoy ALA and use the rest of my vacation to relax, visit with friends and family, tour the amazing locations I’m going (more on that in an upcoming post!) and get a lot of reading done!

Gone, But Not Forgotten

While I will be away from the blog doing a myriad of bookish and non-bookish things, I will be very active on Twitter and Instagram, sharing travel updates and of course ALA updates! Feel free to chat with me over those platforms. I may also have one or two scheduled posts go up during this time frame, and I will return comments on those (and any other comments I haven’t yet gotten to) as soon as I get back!

What to Expect Upon My Return

Glad you asked! A lot of great things, including:

  • ALA Recap Post!
  • Vacation Recap Post
  • A New Feature Being Launched!
  • A Possible Giveaway…
  • My General Return to the Book Blogging World in Full Force.

So Basically…

It’s hard for me to take a vacation because this blog is such a huge part of my life, but I have so many exciting things going on that I really want to be involved and present for (and without hauling various electronics around). So I just want to say thank you for following and understanding, and I’m definitely not ignoring anyone! I can’t wait to get back to chatting with you wonderful people on here soon, and be sure to check out my other social media accounts where I’m going to be very active during this short hiatus!

    • Thank you! It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought, being gone for 2 weeks (aside from the 900+ Bloglovin’ posts I had to catch up on!) but I’m making my way through my backlog of comments and I’m glad I was able to vacation without stressing myself out over posting!
