I’ve been thinking about something I would like to resolve to do on my blog in 2013. So below are my blogging resolutions for 2013. I am trying to be a more efficient reader and whittle down my ever growing TBR pile…
1. Stop reading a series if I don’t enjoy it. I always start these series and then feel like I need to read them to the bitter end. I need to stop this. I am reading 82 different series right now and it is kind of scary. That means each year there are at least 82 new books coming out just in series I am currently reading….
2. Keep my review pile under control. This year I finally whittled my review pile from 50 books down to 8 books. I am really really going to try and keep it that way. My new rule is only to accept two review books a month (unless it is in a series I am reading).
3. Reduce my To Be Read pile. Last year I ended the year with 275 books in my TBR pile This year I am down to 261…okay, so not great but at least it is going down. My new goal is to try and obtain less than 3 books a week. This should enable me to actually reduce the number of books laying around the house. Maybe when my son asks if I am ever going to read all of those books I can answer yes!!!
4. Do more spontaneous posting and be more socially active. Right now because of my busy life style I do a ton of reviews and scheduled posts. This is because I only have certain blocks of time I can set aside to work on this stuff. This year I would like to do more News posts and maybe even some author interviews. I used to do more of this, but kind of gave it up last year because of a busy kid activity and work schedule. This will probably be the hardest resolution for me to stick with because I just don’t have that much control over everything else that happens in my life (Work, kid, etc).
That’s all I can think of right now. Hope that you are all having a great New Year so far!
