It's Time to Say Goodbye

Hey everyone!

I know I haven't been around much, and I apologize for that. Unfortunately, I've decided to stop utilizing this blog. I will continue to write about LGBT+ topics - including lots of book reviews - on ShootingStarsMag. If you aren't already following me there, please do! I'd love to still keep in touch and as always, I'll be visiting your blogs and commenting. I'm not going anywhere - I'll just be posting strictly on ShootingStarsMag instead of on both blogs.

Why am I moving to just one blog?

1. I've been able to blog less and less here, and I don't want a blog that's only a few posts a month. I'd rather turn all my energy to just the one blog - where I blog practically five days a week, every week.

2. With all the new GDPR compliancy restrictions, it's been a bit stressful figuring out what I needed to do and then adding all those new things to ShootingStarsMag. I haven't done anything anything with this blog, and I'm not going to, as I will no longer be using it. I'm not deleting the blog though - you can still come here and look at old posts. I'll keep updating my blog list in the sidebar because it's how I keep track of new posts from bloggers I love. I don't want to figure out where else to keep these blogs (yes, I do follow most of them via Bloglovin, etc. - but this is seriously handier sometimes!)

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone for reading and/or commenting all these years. It's been great sharing my love for all things LGBT+ and that won't stop because I'll keep posting about it on ShootingStarsMag too.

Please follow me there?

Best (and remember - let's get beyond tolerance!!!)

Oh no! I'm so sad to see you go from this blog, Lauren. It's been such a delight to read a dedicated LGBTQIAP+ book blog. But I'm glad you're moving that content over to your other site! So it's not a final goodbye :)

I just went and followed your other blog on Bloglovin, but the last post is from August, 2017. I think it's because the link you have up on the Bloglovin page is still blogspot and not .net? Just thought I would let you know so your followers are getting your content!

I hope it's easier to keep track of just the one blog. It can be hard with two sometimes!

I'd noticed you'd been doing more on the other blog. I'll be over there too! Thanks for letting us know! Although I totally love the title of this blog so much!

I am sorry to hear you're letting this one go, but it sounds like a good decision to put everything on one blog. It seems easier to handle everything on one blog. Good to know I'll have to visit your other blog from now onward.
