Rose City Reader has been around for 14 years now, since 2008. The popularity of book blogging seems to have waxed and waned over those years. Other social media platforms have lured away bloggers and potential bloggers with shiny new options, some which faded away themselves and some which are going strong like Instagram.
My own blogging activity changes over time, depending on what else is going on in my life. Usually it is my work that takes me away. Don't you hate it when your job interferes with your hobbies? But I persevere with Rose City Reader because I love it and look forward to "someday" when I can spend less time in the office and more time reading and blogging.
