First: What do you do when you're just plain burnt out on blogging? How do you amp yourself up to blog again? Do you take a break? Change your focus? What?
Oh, I'm still reading every day for a couple of hours; I've just (temporarily, I pray) lost the will to tell people what I think about the books I'm reading. I'm simply enjoying my reading and then taking an action with each book, but for some reason I'm resisting blogging about it all. Most of my creative energy is now going into teaching, and it's pretty well drained those capacities to the point where I've scant interest in opining here these days.
I wish this weren't so, and I'm looking to all of you for ideas on how to reinvigorate my blogging spirits, or to suggest what you most enjoy reading about, so I can focus on that.
My gratitude in advance for any thoughts you can offer here.
Second: I'm currently working on an action-reading book challenge for 2012 because I'm still convinced it can change our lives and the world. Can anyone recommend a how-to video on creating a button for the challenge? Or can you recommend a blogger who makes them in exchange for her/his choice of books from my "Loved 'Em, But Don't Feel The Need To Shelve 'Em Indefinitely" pile?
