In response to the fact that my personal life is busy with non-stop family/travel time (a family wedding, my birthday, and my anniversary are all in the next two weeks) and the fact that my job is going to be non-stop stress and craziness in the month of June, I think I need to make a few adjustments to my blogging life.
- I plan on reducing my postings to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. Expect reviews on Mondays and Wednesdays and the TGIF meme or other discussion post on Fridays (will depend on topic/inspiration). I am hoping having a more firm posting schedule will allow me more free time for non-book-related pursuits, as well as for reading and writing.
- I am eliminating the Top Ten Tuesday meme for the most part (though I may do it when a future topic strikes my fancy) because those posts were diminishing in quality and I was having a really hard time checking out and commenting on other people’s posts. It lost some of its fun and I definitely need a break from that, so I am giving myself one.
- I have already started varying up the genres I read and review. I like reading a variety, so I will be reviewing a variety. I hope that we can all expand what we read this way.
I know that several of these items will affect the number of people who read this blog (some already have) and THAT IS OK. I firmly believe that I blog for the fun of it, not for the popularity, so I gotta do what makes me happy. Hopefully, the changes will be for the best– both in terms of my sanity and the quality of this blog!
