Slow Blogging

I was again starting to plan out an aggressive timetable of blog and social media posts to help me become a ‘successful’ blogger with a ‘successful’ blog. Filling all the metrics of hits, likes and client interactions.

These are the things the Internet and ‘people’ tell you are required to be a good and successful blogger.

I then suddenly realised that the only person I’m really blogging for is myself, and if others like or get some pleasure/use from what I wrote or post that is a wonderful bonus.

Even though there has been at least one post a day for most of December (24 shops of Christmas), I don’t expect to make a daily post, they will come when I have something to say or show, and hopefully will be all the better for it.

I have a lot of content and reviews to put on the blog but there may also be times when RealLife™ intrudes as I have to work 60-70 hours to make ends meet.

In January the blog will slow down to its usual pace of at least one post a week, some information about the bookshops and publishers added regularly, and if you follow me on Twitter (@IndieBookshopUK) you can hear me ramble on about stuff daily.

If you want to help and support this blog and my other projects (Indie Publishers and Big Bearded Bookseller) you could become a Patreon which would help pay for my hosting, domain names, streaming services, and the occasional bag of popcorn to eat while watching films.

If you can’t support with a monthly subscription a tip at my Ko-Fi is always appreciated, as is buying things from my Ko-Fi Shop.

You can always email me on with any suggestions.
