By this point, some of you have probably noticed that I haven’t been posting very regularly (or very often). To be honest, I was kind of shocked, myself, when I checked back in and realized that I hadn’t reviewed anything in over a month and a half.

I feel like I owe you all an explanation, not least because many of you are personally known and very dear to me.

First, let me clarify: Read Like a Girl is not shutting down. But I’ve had a major life change that is likely to affect the frequency and regularity with which I post from now on.

After working for about 10 years as a freelancer, I recently went back to full-time employment as a marketing coordinator for a local small business. I love my new job: it centers around writing, my coworkers (who include my husband) are amazing, and I’m learning new skills and stretching my existing ones every day.

But the downside, of course, is that I have less time for “my” writing. It’s taken me the last few months to figure out my new normal and find space in it for my most treasured projects, including Read Like a Girl.

The upshot is that, although I’ll have to post less frequently, I do intend to keep posting. I have a small stack of new books waiting by my reading chair, and I’m going to aim for something on the order of one review per month.

Meanwhile, I hope you’ll continue to be patient with me and keep reading when I post. And if you haven’t already, please come join me over on Facebook, where I’m able to share a bit more often.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for sharing this journey with me. I’m looking forward to the next stage of our travels together.

  1. I’ve never purged anyone from my RSS feed for taking her time to write well. (To the contrary, I’ve stopped following several blogs because of all the noise of frequent posts that conventional wisdom says you need.)

    In an age of free content, the quality of your writing stands in crisp relief. If your posts show up in my feed months or years apart, I’m happy to have them.

  2. Thank you for the update, Kathryn, and best wishes to you on your new endeavor! I had noticed that you were not posting as many reviews, and I wondered why. I look forward to reading more of your blog posts when you wrestle everything into balance :).
