A Brief Hiatus

Hey all!

As some of you may have noticed, at the start of August I disappeared. It wasn’t planned and I tried to avoid it but unfortunately I couldn’t get things done in the short amount of time I had. So instead, I’m going to take a brief break to return with a new – and hopefully better – schedule.

I have my OWLS blog tour on August 28th and I may choose to join for the September one too. Aside from those posts there won’t be anything here until October.

Why such a long break do I hear you ask?

As some of you may know my old job was made redundant. Luckily I managed to go straight from my old job into a new one but there wasn’t any time for me to schedule posts. I used to do almost all of my anime watching and writing during my lunch hour and now I don’t have that time to spare. Not every day like I used to.

This means I need to find a new time slot to write and watch and it’s very possible that will now only be at a weekend. As such doing seasonal weekly posts will be a lot harder and I think I’ll be dropping them completely. I had a lot of fun in the past two weeks writing posts about Female Characters and how You Are Enough but they weren’t quick reaction pieces. I also want to write more reviews like my March Comes in like a Lion review. My review on Tsuki ga Kirei has been in the works for a long time.

I think scheduling my posts in advance in the way I need to go. So often I’ve just finished writing a post before it’s released but it’s time to get more organised. My new job involves an element of international travel and I can’t always be sure I’ll be around to post now. As far as content goes, I love writing reviews but I also want posts that look at the series I’m enjoying in a different light. Posts that hone in on one element of the anime, for example. I’ve some ideas but I hope reading more will help give me more ideas too.

So, I hope to see you for my OWLS posts and I wish you all the best for the rest of the summer. I’ll still be around so stop by and comment here or contact me on twitter or MAL.

  1. Hi hi, I’m in the same boat as you, my blog will be on hiatus soon – I will be scheduling some posts and an explanation for my hiatus as well. But it’s also career reasons! Best of luck and I’m glad you’re apart of the OWLS group 😀
