Why Hello


As it is now August, I suppose I ought to make good on my promise to return from hiatus. I have to admit, I haven’t missed blogging too much while I was away. Sometimes I kind of wanted to write a post, but I was fine with waiting or posting it on my Tumblr (I did two Top Ten Tuesdays there as well as my TNG season 5 recap). I do have a few new post ideas, though only one partially written (whoops), but I will probably keep my posting light going forward as I have decided:

1.) I definitely want to keep my fiction writing as a top priority, and…

2.) I have decided I’m not going to try to keep up as a “big” blog.

I really enjoyed growing in subscribers and comments, coming up with different content, but then I felt I plateaued and stagnated. I figured this hiatus would help me determine if I was ready to come back into this full force and try to make this blog bigger and better, or if I would just be content with it as an outlet when I wanted to say something for whoever wanted to read it. And I have decided on the latter.

I am definitely grateful for all my readers and appreciated the comments several of you left on my hiatus post. I hope you will stick around for whatever I may bring.

Here are the posts I do intend to write sometime in the next month…

– Bookish Wedding Inspiration: The Start of Me & You (I’ve gathered a few pictures for this and still have a way’s to go, but I’m REALLY excited about this one!)

– Why You Should Watch Deep Space Nine If You Love Mistborn (& Vice Versa) (This is the one I’ve started writing and I think it’ll be interesting!)

– Mini movie reviews for Inside Out, Ant-Man, and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

– Mini book reviews (I haven’t decided how many of the books I will be reviewing from what I read over my hiatus, but I read several good ones!)

So… how’s it going, everyone?!

  1. Glad to have you back 🙂 And I think it’s great that you’ll be focusing more on your writing and just blogging sporadically.

    Also, I have to comment on the ST:TNG 5 episodes. I do love Cause and Effect and Disaster. Darmok, though, is in my top 5 of the whole series. I love that episode – I love the language in it and the stories. The monster is kind of lame but the friendship and the struggle is great 🙂 The Game also is in my top series episodes. I like Robin Lefler’s laws and I like seeing Wesley again. It’s one of 15 year old me’s favorite episodes and so it’ll always be a favorite (along with Menage a Troi). Power Play I liked pretty well also. It’s fun to see those characters acting so differently. And The Perfect Mate! I love that one. I think it’s the best thing Famke Jensen has ever done (but that’s partly because I think she was miscast in X-Men). I love the complications of her character and the things she struggles with and her purpose and the things Picard makes her question. Such a good episode 🙂

    I forget how much I love this series until I read your episode lists and then it’s so much fun!

    • I like the sentiment of Darmok, but I have the hardest time believing Picard could have figured out the stories that quickly. It’s an interesting concept for sure though. I love Robin and Wesley together in The Game but I don’t like the plot and just all the weirdness with the game in general. It feels more silly than real to me. But I really wish we could have gotten more Robin after! She was a great character.

  2. Glad you’re back, Amy! I’ve missed your posts (and I’m so bad at tumblr that I missed the ones you posted over there — doh!). It’s nice to sit back and decide exactly how you want to proceed, and I’m happy that you’ve come to a good decision about this blog (and that you’re not going to close it down or anything!!!). I know I don’t comment very often anymore, but I always read and enjoy your posts. <3

  3. Welcome back! I didn’t even realize you were on hiatus, since I kind of was as well, and we had our book club meeting in the middle of it there..lol

    I hope you got the break that you needed 🙂
