HOWEVER, it has been causing me a lot of stress lately. I can't tell you how guilty I feel about not posting. I can't go on this way! I have legitimate reasons for not posting! To name a few: I'm entering my last year of college, I just quit my job of 4 years and I'm starting work in the school district of my dreams next week.
As such, I just don't have the drive/time to post as much as I do. Honestly, for the last 6 months or so I've felt really isolated in the book blogging community. I think part of that is self-imposed because of my busy-ness, and some of it has to do with google reader going away, and I feel like I haven't met any IRL bloggers in a long time. But the bottom line is, right now my blog is a lonely place. I need some time to remember why I love it here. Because I DO love it here... usually.
And so Squeaky Books is going to Hibernate. What exactly does that mean? Well, you know how when you hibernate your computer, it's like shutting it down but it's a lot easier to turn back on? That's what I'm doing. I'm going to release myself from the guilt of posting all the time, but I WILL STILL POST. Just when the mood strikes me. For example, I already know I will be doing a week-long birthday celebration. And I've got some tours in the mix. But I HAVE to stop feeling guilty about not posting regularly.
The goal of "hibernating" as opposed to shutting down, is that I do hope to be back to full force some time in the future. When my life gets back into a rhythm. When I remember why I love blogging. For whatever reason. I want to come back. Here's hoping it happens soon.

P.S. I remember when I was a newer-ish blogger (from about years 1-5) I would read posts like these and think "that's never gonna be me." Just shows you that life catches up with everyone. *weep*
