Blogging makes me read books.
Some years ago, when my work load was way lighter than it is now, I had ample time to spare, even when it’s not break time. I could read books there. And even blog there. With such loose schedule, I could read at least one book a month. To me, that constancy was enough to keep my blog alive.
Yet some books proved to be challenging, in weight, breadth, and/or content. So, if that was the case, it took me a while to finish one. But I wanted to remain consistent. That’s why I developed the habit of reading books while riding the train, ergo the title of my blog.
As much as I love and have kept reading books for years, it was not what I was being paid to do.
My work load changed. My “free” time at the office decreased. I would still increase efforts to read as much as and faster than before. But it took a toll on me. Soon, I had to admit defeat. I could no longer post monthly. And that was kind of sad for me.
While, technically, the Daily Prompts are posts, they are not what I named my blog after.
No, I have not lost sight of my original goal. I know what this blog is meant to do. And I will keep at it, even if it takes me a while longer than I usually do.
