In this case, I happen to think that change is good. Good for the blog! It’s also time for me to get honest and quit being so stubborn. I’ve been battling being able to get my posts out like I would like for some time now and have finally reached the place where I am a full year behind my own schedule. (In case you haven’t noticed, book review posts have been lacking a lot lately.) 😦 It’s been hard to write reviews doing justice to my thoughts on a book when it’s months after I’ve finished it and have a hard time remembering the characters’ names. That’s terrible! I’m also feeling weighed down by all of the different things I have on my backed-up list and I feel the need to purge.
So I promised myself that when I hit that ‘one year behind mark’, I’d double down and do some serious reassessing and catching up. I’m not entirely sure how that will look yet. I know that I don’t want to overwhelm followers’ inboxes with spam posts. I think it will involve a lot of narrowing down of what I will write about for the time being in order to focus on book reviews and books-I’m-loving-type updates. I’ve also decided to write less movie reviews since I don’t think I’m very good at them, and only write them in such cases as I’ve read the book first. Except for reviews that I already have typed up and ready to go.
I want to provide my reviews on goodreads as well. That shouldn’t create extra work, but will broaden the availability. Unfortunately, the few reviews I have on there right now are negative ones and I don’t want to be the type of person who only speaks out when they have something to grouse about.
I have a few more ideas in the works, so stay TUNED (hint hint)!
Now, I’ve just pitched that long list titled “Backed Up Book Blog” and I’m feeling better already!
