Hi everyone! Let's get right to it: I am, to put it mildly, extremely burned out. I'm in the middle of a huge stressful work project and also have had a bunch of personal stuff going on and I'm working on a writing project I actually really like and want to devote some energy to and . . . something has to give, and that something has to be these posts. Some I'm going on hiatus for a bit and then will reevaluate how to do something along these lines in a more sustainable way - maybe weekly roundups.
This wasn't an easy decision, because I really do enjoy putting these posts together, but at the same time - it's a fair amount of time and effort, making sure I have 15 links every single day, and also it's kind of a constant inescapable thing to know I have to either have time before 8am to write the post or do it the night before. I like it! But it's been YEARS of having to plan my life around this structure to some extent and I just need a break. (And since I left Substack because of their transphobia, I've been doing this totally just for free, so it's a hobby that is in fact just work. Which is often what I like in hobbies! But it has to take a back seat to actual work.)
So: Have a great rest of your summer! Pop around occasionally because I have some book reviews coming up. And I'll be back in some form in September.
