Hello everyone! I hope you’re all well. It’s been a very long time. Apparently it’s been since May 2018! I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m still around. I really love the community that developed on this blog, and I enjoyed writing here. It makes me happy to see that tons of people are still finding the old posts every day in google searches, and I really hope that the posts are providing value to them and are what they were looking for.
But I don’t foresee myself writing any new posts here.
These days, I mainly read nonfiction or reread old favourites. It’s not that I no longer have a lot of things to say about books—I do. But I just don’t feel as pressing an urge to share them anymore. Of course this blog will always stay up! And who knows? Maybe one day, I’ll return…
Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.Doctor Who, 1964
Anyway. I wanted to tell you guys that I did recently start blogging again!
Last September I brought home an adorable little Pembroke Welsh corgi puppy. Oh—I’m outdoorsy now! Things really have changed in the past 3 years. Well, kinda. I mean, I take walks and gentle hikes. I’m not out there running or anything crazy like that. But anyway, I wanted an active dog that I could have adventures with. So this is Cordelia! Obviously Anne of Green Gables inspired. It is such a perfectly elegant name, after all!
But to her friends and family, she’s pretty much always Delia. She turned a year old last month. This last year has not been an easy one, but having her around has made it so much better, as anyone with a dog can understand.
Anyway. I missed writing, and these days I have a lot of things to say about dogs. So I created a blog to share our adventures as well as information about corgis and dogs in general. It’s called the Com(pemb)dium, as in a compendium of all things Cordelia, Pembroke Welsh corgi, and dogs in general. You can go check it out at https://compembdium.com. I don’t know how many of you are interested in dog stuff, but you guys were always so kind to me, and I care about you guys. I didn’t want to drop off the face of the earth—well, actually, I guess I did do that. For 3 years.
But! I didn’t mean to do that! I honestly can’t believe it has been that long. It’s ridiculous that 2018 was 3 years ago. And did 2020 even count? I’m pretty sure 2019 was the last year when time held any meaning. So technically, it has only been a year.
Anyway, I didn’t want to drop off the face of the earth forever without letting you guys know that I’m still around and still blogging.
You guys are the bestest followers, and thank you for following me on this long and winding road. Some of you really have been subscribed since the very beginning, before I had really found my voice or hit my stride
(did I ever hit my stride? It’s debatable.) I can’t thank you enough for that. I never envisioned that almost 400 people would ever want to sit here and listen to a book nerd talking books, often barely coherently, for years.
But…I think this is it guys. So thank you so much and stay well.
Have a lovely day. ❤
