Becca here, the often-silent partner of this crazy blog. Some of you are no doubt saying What? There’s someone running this place besides Angela? Well, kind of. Since the birth of my daughter, I’ve been struggling to find time to keep up with this wonderful blog, much less get to know our awesome followers. Now my son is due in November; with two kids under the age of two, I can already see my scant free time flying right out the window. I need to be realistic with myself and fair to Angela, so I’m stepping down as co-host of The Bookshelf Muse.
I’m sad to do it. This is a happy place, so filled with creativity and wonderful ideas for writers (if I do say so myself). And I’ve learned a ton about how to maintain an online presence–information that will help me one day when my kids can maybe wipe their orifices themselves and leave me a little more time for writing-related activities. But I think this is the best decision for me at this point.
So thank you, everyone, for making my foray into the blogging world so interesting and successful. And thank you, Angela, for letting me limp along with you on this enlightening journey. You are still my writing soul sister, and I can’t wait to see your name in print!
