Hey everyone!  I know I haven’t been around the blogosphere very much lately, and I wanted to apologize for that.  As some of you know, I had a rough time in early September and that really threw me off.  So while I’ve still been keeping up with my blog posts, I’ve really fallen behind with other things.  Namely responding to comments left here on my blog, and leaving comments on other blogs.  I used to be fantastic at this, but even before last month it was getting pretty hard to keep up with.  

So first of all, to all the blogs that I used to visit on a frequent basis, I apologize for not commenting lately.  I have saved all my favorite blogs’ posts in my Google reader, and I WILL be reading them and commenting SOON!  Then I hope to stay up to date so that I can actually read the posts when you post them, rather than days or weeks later.

Also, to everyone who has commented on my blog in the past month, I really apologize.  I have read and loved every single comment you all have left, and they’re actually still saved as “unread” in my email inbox.  I do this every time I get a comment–I read them in my email, mark them as “unread” and then when I get a chance I go back, respond here on my blog, and then visit the commenter’s blog and leave a comment as well.  

But unfortunately I’ve gotten so behind that I have over 100 unread emails in my inbox.  This is just too much for me to get caught up with.  It’s this huge mountain of comments–lovely, wonderful comments that I WANT to respond to, but I just can’t.  Last month was busy for me, this month is going to be super hectic, and next month will be busy as well.  So unfortunately I just don’t have the time to visit everyone’s blogs and leave thoughtful comments. So I’m going to have to let all those comments from last month go without responding to them.  Again, if you commented on The Overstuffed Bookcase last month, I sincerely apologize.  But, if you have left one this month, I will be responding very soon!  Hopefully I can respond to those and get caught up and stay caught up.

So once again, I’m sorry I’ve been lacking in the commenting department for the last month, and I really appreciate all your comments.  I wish I could respond to every single one, and I actually have up until this point.  I will do better in the future!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!

    Well if it makes you feel better, if I posted apologies every time I failed to respond to a comment on my blog, I wouldn't have a book blog anymore, I'd have an apology blog! ;) As the Irish say, no worries, you're grand!

    No worries, nobody blames you for being busy and thus, a teensy absent – it's all good! : ) Don't worry, be happy now. : )

    No worries! We all know that life happens, and sadly there is no "pause" button to use to get caught up on everything. :)

    Dude… it is SO easy to get behind. i am way behind. And sometimes… that's just the way it has to be. :(

    You don't have to apology, really! Life outside the internet always comes first, and you had some serious issues that needed you to stay focused and to just care about yourself. You don't have to be sorry for this :)

    I think you made the right decision because it would have stressed you out too much to force yourself to go back and get caught up. Just do what you can from here on out!
