Melissa Lee's Many Reads has been quite a learning experience for me, as I have never created a blog before. It has given me the opportunity to join a wonderful community and to connect with people from all over the world, who share the same interests that I do. I even managed to gain a small group of followers and I am so grateful for each and every one of you.
After such a positive experience, you are probably wondering why I have decided to move on from this blog, well there are several reasons..
As I prepared for the birth of my son and the months after his grand arrival, I had to take a step back from blogging and reviewing. It gave me time to reflect on this blog and I began to realize that although I still enjoy it, I just wasn't satisfied with my presentation of it anymore. I have quite lofty goals for the content I wanted to publish, but lacked the knowledge to do so. To be honest, I have tried to do too much with it and I haven't followed through with the plans I would announce. At the same time I began to realize that I had outgrown Melissa Lee's Many Reads, its appearance and even its name.
Somehow it didn't feel right to me to just overhaul this blog and take a different approach with it. Then I began to have problems with this blogging platform. I tried several times to fix these problems, but just became more and more frustrated. In the end I came to the conclusion that I wanted somewhere I could start fresh and create a blog that I could keep up with. A space that could grow with me.
And so I have created my new blog ML's Red House Reviews.

I don't plan on deleting Melissa Lee's Many Reads and I still have several upcoming pre-scheduled posts yet to come, however I wanted to take this time to share with my readers my plans moving forward.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my posts and reviews. I hope to see you all over at ML's Red House Reviews.
