New Years Goals(Blog Edition)

We're getting very close to ringing in the New Year and I already have a list of things I hope to accomplish during 2011 BUT I also have a list of things I want to accomplish on my blog during 2011.

1. REVIEWS: I receive quite a few review copies from publishers and authors but I have absolutely no organization with them. No order. I would like to create some sort of system that keeps me up to date and on time with all my review copies. The review pile isn't getting any smaller, if I don't figure out some sort of order now, I am going to be a frazzled mess!

2. INTERVIEWS: I love doing author interviews and having them for guest posts but there is a new thing that I am currently working on where The Crazy Bookworm will start interviewing other Book Bloggers, too! I am wanting to offer something new and fresh on my blog for the New Year and I am hoping that this appeals to all my readers.

3. COMMENTS: During Blog Hop and Follow Friday I do a lot of hopping and commenting but other than that I don't comment that often. I read tons of blogs and posts throughout the week but I don't always comment and I want to start getting in the habit of being more 'blog social'.

4. RELAX: Blogging can be a time consuming hobby but sometimes I allow myself to get to stressed over my blog. I just need to relax *Inhale, Exhale*. Blogging is supposed to be fun, and most the time it is, but sometimes it feels like...dare I say it?...A job! I'll stress about the littlest things, reviews, interviews, you name it! Or sometimes I'll be in a reading funk and I'll stress about not having anything to post for a while. I am hoping that in the New Year when I start stressing I'll take a deep breath, put my laptop away for a bit and relax.

5. READ MORE: It's a book blog right? I started this blog to record and share my thoughts on books. But it seems I am blogging more than I am reading. I am hoping to read and review at least 4 books a month...Doesn't sound to bad does it? *Fingers Crossed*

So with a little organization and some breathing techniques I think it shouldn't be too difficult to stick with my blogging goals. What are your goals for the New Year?

  1. Fantastic resolutions! Many of mine are the same, especially about commenting more. I know how you feel about sometimes being stressed about blogging, we need to learn when to take a break. I'm sure you'll accomplish them all :)

  2. Sounds like every book blogger's wish for the new year! I tend to comment only when I read something really interesting or a thought pops into my head, not just because I stopped by. But there's never any harm in just saying hi :)
