You may have noticed that it’s been silent around here for quite some time, and if you know me from the Baby-Sitters Club Boards, I haven’t been around much there, either.
Which brings me to the central question of this post. I am now almost 30, closer to the age that Kristy thinks women should stop wearing bikinis that I am to middle school, closer in age to the clients’ parents than the sitters themselves. When I started reading the series, I was younger than many of the clients.
I still actively read the books when I can. But after around 15+ years in this fandom, I’m not sure that I have all that much left to discuss. I’ve had this site for so long that even when I feel like I have something to say, I can look in my archives and see that I covered that topic already. And snarking the books isn’t really my thing either; a lot of things that others take issue with just don’t bug me, and a lot of the time, it ends up feeling kind of mean-spirited and shouty rather than funny.
So I’m not sure where that leaves this site at the moment. I have been dedicating my time to other projects. I do think I will review Ann’s Mrs Piggle-Wiggle and whatever other new books she comes out with. I actually started writing a post about that with other properties she could retool, but I never finished it. I will also maybe write more about non-BSC children’s books. So I think at this point, it will either be an intermittenly updated BSC/Ann blog, or a more frequently updated blog about the kidlit of my youth in general.
Thanks to all of you who still read this, despite my lack of updates
