I have been writing this blog with one post a day for twenty months now and while I still love to do it and won’t stop in the foreseeable future, I feel I have to, no, I want to scale back a little. Hopefully not in quality, but certainly in quantity to preserve the former and not compromise it for the latter.
When I was newly down the rabbit hole I couldn’t smell enough, couldn’t explore enough, I had a blast. Now I’m in a more sedate mood, the frenzy has mostly calmed, and now I want to enjoy what I have and adapt that pace in my living and in my writing.
Perfume is incredibly important to me and I want to keep it that way, what I don’t want is to make a chore out of it. Many of you visit this blog more than once, because they like my way of writing, and rather than impressing people with my prolific style, I’d prefer to keep myself and hopefully my readers happy with what I have been doing all along, only a little slower.
The months of July and August mean I have less time to blog, and this year I don’t want to struggle to keep everything up and running at full speed, despite having less hours a day to do so. I don’t want to run out of steam.
I’m planning to keep the Monday Question going as well as at least two reviews per week. So I’m no totally slacking off, but I’m not keeping up the same daily schedule either.
This is a song by an Austrian singer from the nineties, I grew up with this and I think it is an exceptional piece of music that an international audience should hear. Also, it says it all…
I hope you stay with me through the summer and join me while taking the time to smell the roses (and jasmines, and irises and ouds and vanillas and…)!
