VERY IMPORTANT BINGO BLOG NEWS AND UPDATE

IMPORTANT BLOGGING NEWS!

TO ALL MY WONDERFUL FOLLOWERS,

Due to personal health issues and time constraints in my life and family, I am cutting back on my blogging for a couple of months. All is going to be fine and I fully expect to blog full time again in the new year. For now, I will still be posting reviews, giveaways, and previews of upcoming books I think you will enjoy, as well as the popular Cozy Mysteries. However, I will not be doing it necessarily every day and will not be doing as many giveaways during this time period. 

PLEASE be sure you have signed up for my email posts in the left hand column below so that when I do post, you will know about it. I hope to work on getting more followers during this time as well. As much as I have THE BEST and MOST LOYAL followers, I need to have more to warrant the amount of work and the giveaways I am able to offer. 

I hope you all understand and will be staying in touch via my posts. When I do have a post, it is still vitally important that you comment in some way even if it isn't a giveaway as occasionally, I may find myself giving away the book I blog about without any prior announcement but rather as a result of the comments I receive.

Below is a generic example of the type of announcement you might see on a post that could result in a giveaway:
 
Because all my followers are so wise, I'd love to hear your comment(s) on "TITLE OF SOME BOOK". Although there are no regular giveaways for a while, one never can tell when a comment that impresses me just might catch my eye and attention, thus prompting me to do a special giveaway to one wise commenter. This will happen during the time I am taking a break from regular blogging so I hope to hear from you.
PLEASE feel free to comment or ask any questions you may have below and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this "hiatus" from BOOKIN' WITH BINGO. Do not worry about the current giveaways listed as those winners will be announced over two days coming up next week.
 HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!

You deserve some free time. All this reading can cause some serious eye strain for you and Bingo. Have fun playing. Be well.

Completely understand the need to scale and/or step back for awhile. Your health and family are more important than the blog. May all be well soon.

Bingo said...

Thank you, Linda and Nise! It is having wonderful followers like you all that keeps me loving this but yes, a break will be good for a bit.

I am sure this will end up being a blessing for you Bingo! We all need to take time out for our own well being. May this break be filled with healing, peace, joy, and sprinkled with love and kisses from your family and friends.

I wish you the best and keep us posted how you are - we will miss "seeing" you every day but you need to take care of yourself.

Feel well relax & have some fun.

Margie said...

Best wishes to you, Karen. You definitely deserve some time off. I will certainly be following your blog, and I hope to hear that all is going well for you and your family. Take care.

I wish you all the best. Get some rest and enjoy your family.

Carol N Wong said...

We all need to take care of our selves and family and get enough rest instead of pushing, pushing, pushing so there should be no problem with your announcement.

Stay in touch once in a while!

Carol

Do you see what I mean about my followers? Have you read these wonderful comments? Thank you all so much. I was right in having a tough time making this decision because of you all. I am amazed that I feel so close to you all and we have never met in person! I guess it is the bonus of our digital age. I thank you all so much for your understanding.

Bingo, you are a great person and a wonderful blogger. Your health, and family is a priority. Rest up, take time to relax and give yourself a break.

Karen B said...

Hello again!

"I hope to work on getting more followers during this time as well." How about a share button at the end (or beginning) of each post? I've found blogs and contests this way on FB.

I really understand how you need some time to regenerate---I can't believe the number of books you have been reading and reviewing. I hardly have time to read all the reviews and never enough time to enter all the contests. Enjoy your down time--you really deserve it.

holdenj said...

Ah Bingo, glad to hear everything is ok in general and I do understand the need to regenerate, as someone else said. Plus, there's a lot of football to watch, as you always mention in your sidebar! Take it easy and rest assured, I'll be checking in and thinking about you.

Melissa Bo said...

Im a new follower, and really enjoy your blog.

I can totally understand about taking a break, wishing the best for you and your family!

Bingo said...

You guys inspire me so much. Thank you for all the wonderful comments and ideas as well. I am still here and at least posting a bunch for next couple of weeks or so. Be well and keep reading!

Take care of yourself! Will enjoy your reviews whenever you do them. Thanks for supporting us readers!
