Today's question is: What are your new year's book blogging resolutions?
Review More Often: I found myself caught up in the blogging itself and sort of lost track of why I really started the blog in the first place. I've only been doing this for one year and I think I got caught up in other things rather than focussing on what I needed to focus on, which is my interest in books and authors themselves. My blog sort of took on a life of its own and I'm not completely satisfied in the direction it's going, so I'm going to re-evaluate this year and see what I really want to do with it and where I want it to go.
Comment: I'm a stalker/lurker rather than a commenter, unless I see something that really catches my eye. My time is rather limited, but that's not really an excuse as I can comment more often than I do.
Reviews: I have been receiving a lot of requests for book reviews lately (and there have been some really good ones too), but realistically, I have a demanding job, two children, and a husband in the military. I need to face facts and understand that I can't do it all and I will have to turn down some requests this year, or take on some blogging buddies to help with the reviews, something I've been considering. I also need to focus more on these on my blog, although I enjoy the memes as they're fun and I get to do something different. Due to the nature of my job, I have to be somewhat guarded in what I write so I like some of the memes where I can talk about myself and reveal a little about myself. I always find these posts interesting on other blogs.
It's time to relax: It's a book blog and the books aren't going anywhere. In fact, the pile just keeps on getting bigger so I know there's no chance it's going anywhere, much to my hubby's chagrin. I think he's hoping with the ereader, the books will go 'bye-bye', but I highly doubt that will ever happen.
Organization: I'm usually pretty organized, but lately things have gotten out of control, so I have set up a calendar now which works a lot better than the old spreadsheet I've been using.
More author interviews: I enjoy these, but haven't done as many as I would have liked due to other committments. I plan to remedy that this year.
Have a happy new year everyone!!
