It's been too long...

Hello everyone!

   You are probably wondering where I have been lately, and I have been wondering the same exact thing! I know I have been completely off the radar the past few months so I want to thank all of you who are still following this blog!!!

Now, let me explain why I have been absent for so long. Over the summer it became clear that I was going to be able to start school again in the fall, but that meant no more stay at home mom for me since my little girl would be starting preschool at the same time. So I took as much time as I could going on mini adventures with her and enjoying every last minute of our special time together... how did 4 years of being home with her go by so quickly? Well, the summer ended and school began, and that's where the really craziness began! It has been a bit of a challenge figuring out the best way to fit in school work and family time with my husband's and my opposite schedules, but I think it is finally under control.

This blog and how I would continue with it has been on my mind for many months, and while I could never say farewell to it, I do have to make peace with the fact that I just wont be able to post as often as I used to. I am setting my goal for 2 reviews a month with giveaways and news on the upcoming historical fiction releases throughout the rest of the month. Of course if I can post more reviews I will surely do so, but you can count on this as the bare minimum. I have missed all of you and our exploration of what's new and exciting in historical fiction these past months, and I am exited to be back in a more manageable fashion!

Once again, thank you all for your support in making The Muse in the Fog Book Review such a splendid blog to host!

I hope that your new schedule works for you! Nice to see a post from you, and yes, the time does fly doesn't it!

Hi, Svea -- Glad to know you are doing well! Absolutely understand that your baby girl is your #1 priority and family time must come first. Looking forward to seeing your future reviews. All best and good luck in school! :)

I hope it works out for you :)
Starting school again can be so crazy hectic

Carole Rae said...

I'm glad to see everything is okay. I was beginning to get a little worried. I hope it works out for you! Starting school again is going to be insane for me too....

Svea, I wish you all the best in your new academic adventure!

(So glad, though, that we'll still hear from you now and then ;-)

That's great that you're getting to go back to school. I'm trying to go back myself and I know it's really going to change my blogging dynamic, although I will going online. However, being a history major is a lot of work. A lot of writing and research involved. Lucky I love it!

I will still be loyally following, as I'm sure many others will, so no worries about your reduced blogging time.

Hi Svea! Totally understand and no need to apologize or whatever. Glad you are well and the both of you are off to school. How cool?!
Whatever kind of blogging makes you happy is what you should do. One post a week or every two, whatever it is, we'll be here :)
I always enjoy reading your thoughts.
