Blogging Hiatus: I’ve Been Running on Fumes

Hello friends, I’ve finally decided that I need to take a blogging hiatus. I am usually really good with taking periodic breaks, but this year has been really rough and blogging became one of the few things I looked forward to. Unfortunately, I have been running on fumes for the last few months and have kept putting off taking a break. I do have one important post (Talk Chisme to Me, featuring books by Latinx authors that come out in July) that I want to go up and I will be scheduling it at the end of the month/beginning of July. I will be back July 10th-ish. I will still be active on Twitter and at least occasionally on IG. I might even do some blog hopping while away. I have been terrible with this and I think part of it is that I am exhausted from blogging and by the time I have a chance to blog hop, I just don’t have the energy. I need to refuel and hopefully come back with renewed vigor.

One last thing, there are a lot of resources out there that you can use to educate yourself about systemic racism, petitions you can sign, and lists of companies you can support. Please check out the following:

A Radical Library

Taking Action for Justice

Black-owned Indie Bookstores

  1. Take all the time you need, Alicia. I constantly find myself taking insanely long hiatuses whenever life and academics are getting too tough for me so I can focus my time, effort and energy.

    Looking forward to your scheduled Talk Chisme to Me! I hope you get the rest you need from your hiatus. Stay safe! ❀

  2. I’ll miss you, but it’s so important to refill the creative well or just take some time for yourself.

    Can’t wait to see what you come back with 😊

    Happy hiatus!!
