Post-Bloggiesta blues...

You know that feeling you get after a particularly fun (and intense) visit with family or friends, after they’ve gone home and the noise level in your house has gone from constant to nonexistent? It’s a blah let-down kind of feeling, like the party’s over and all that’s left are mountains of dishes to be done. That’s pretty much how I’ve been feeling for the past few days now that the Bloggiesta is over and life’s gone back to normal. It doesn’t help that I’m on a book pause—I’m supposedly reading Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood by Taras Grescoe but I haven’t really gotten into it yet and I haven’t opened it in over a week. I guess there’s nothing for it, I just have to bite bullet and start washing dishes! (Hmm, I’m not sure this metaphor is totally working for me... Which part of blogging is like washing dishes?)

Many thanks again to Natasha at Maw Books Blog for organizing this fabulous event!

If you have no idea what I’m on about, I apologize. Otherwise, please commiserate with me!


  1. Yep, I know exactly how you feel.

  2. I get that way after the read-a-thons. :/

    I'm curious about Bottomfeeder now, though. I read Song for the Blue Ocean, which confirmed for me that even though I love sushi, I won't eat it for moral reasons. So if the book tells me how to eat sushi ethically, I'd be so excited!

  3. Thanks, Kathy, Ashley and Eva! I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

    Eva, I'll let you know if it does. (I'm sure it must depend on what kind of fish you eat in your sushi.)

  4. Avis I know exactly what you are talking about. I have been like that too.

    I have to correct myself I am not all caught up on my reviews I still have a stack of books that I have to post reviews for. I just managed to get a weeks work of stuff posted for this week.

    I hope you get back into the groove of things. I think being offline for a few days will help.

  5. I have an award for you. =)
