Scaling Back… Once Again

Just a quick post to let my blog followers know I am scaling back on blogging until the fall.  My oldest son graduates from High School in a couple weeks and I plan to spend the summer creating some great final memories of life at home.  He has had some serious health challenges the past couple years and I feel strongly that this is where my time should be spent.  We have some fun family trips planned where internet access will likely not be available.


I’ve got a full calendar for the month of May but come June things will be different.  I will still be posting most days, will be running a few giveaway hops and hosting a few tours and blasts.  But not on the scale I have been doing things.  Features and posts such as Got Great Giveaways, Feed Your Reader Friday, Know Me Better, etc. will be few and far between.  I plan to getting back to having more time to actually read books and post reviews.


I plan to returning to blogging full time come September when my kids are all back in school.  But for now it’s time for me to focus on other things.


So stick around, check in occasionally and I promise to be back.


Looking forward to spending my summer doing this:





  1. Good for you Kathy! Hope all of you have a great summer!

  2. Glad you’ll be taking the time you need for your family. That’s what’s most important. And glad you’ll still do some hops. I’m hoping to do one a month with you.

  3. Have a lovely break! All the best to you and your family.

  4. Your family will appreciate the time. Enjoy!

  5. Don’t kids grow up too fast! I told my eight-year-old that he wasn’t allowed to grow anymore and he said “Mom! I have too!” 🙂 I will probably not be as active either even though I’m not as active as you are. Have a great time!

  6. Have a good break… life is too short which I have discovered more and more lately!!


  7. Congratulations on your son’s upcoming graduation! Enjoy your summer with your family and your break from blogging!

  8. Congratulations!! Have a wonderful summer! All the best for you and your family!

  9. Enjoy your summer. I look forward to your return.

  10. I know I will miss you and your posts! 🙂 For me though, I can’t wait until school is out so I can read more and blog more 🙂 Summer is my break from the high school kids where I can read as much as I like 🙂 YAY!!!

    We will be here when you come back 🙂

  11. Enjoy your time with him! 🙂

  12. Sorry to hear that your son has had health problems. Will keep him in my prayers.
    Family is our #1 priority! Enjoy your time with them.

  13. This post makes me happy! It’s wonderful that your kids are the priority and they know it. I hope you make magical family memories. 🙂

  14. So glad to hear that you are taking a slight break, Kathy! You deserve with all the hard work you put into your blog, which is fabulous by the way.

    I hope you and your kids have a great time this summer and I wish your son lots of luck with his new chapter in life!

  15. Have fun, Kathy. And congrats for your son’s upcoming graduation. I’m in the same boat with mine. Fall comes he will be off to college. I can’t imagine the time I’ll have on my hands in a few months…
    Lots of sun and smiles!

  16. 🙂 Enjoy your summer!!!!!
