It’s not a secret that I hardly ever blog here anymore, except for the blog tours I joined, or the suddenly occasional bursts of review inspiration. But to be honest, sometimes I forget that this blog exists nowadays, perhaps because I have several blogs running, too. Case in point – I meant to post this on February 29, but I was out of the country then. Then I told myself, I’ll post it on March 31, and true to form, I almost forgot again.
I don’t want to make this long, and it’s not like I have a ton of readers here nowadays. So without further ado/other fanfare, here it is: I’m closing I Like It Dog-Eared today, March 31, 2016.
No earth-shattering reasons, except I think I’ve outgrown it, and I want to focus my energies on something else. :) I suppose I could have just let it languish and not leave a note, but I like closure. :P That, and I feel guilty getting all these emails for reviews and such when I’m doing such a bad job reading and reviewing, too. So since it’s the leap year, anyway, I figured it was a good time to announce this.
I’m still around, of course. There’s the personal blog for all the life stuff. I will still blog about books, but most of them will be in the new author blog. Reviews/bookish posts there will be mostly books by Filipino authors, to support the community, but some other books may find its way there. No pressure, and probably not the kind of reviews that I used to do here. I’m still on Goodreads, too, and also posting occasional reviews there, as well.
I won’t take the blog down completely, so other people may still find the reviews (comments for most of the posts will close though, because I doubt I’d have time to read them anymore). That said, my views from all those years that I’ve read and reviewed all these books will have changed now if I reread them again, as everyone’s reading tastes change, so do take these opinions with a grain of salt. :)
So thank you, to everyone who followed, commented, and read books because of the reviews I posted here. It’s been fun. See you around!
Onto the last page.
