My 2011 Blogging Resolutions

So now that my blog is a few months old and I'm starting to get the hang of things, I have made some promises to myself about how I'm going to do better.  And I'm posting them here publicly so that I cannot slack off.  :)

So here are my 2011 Blogging Resolutions:
  • Blog more!  This one seems so simple, but it is so effortless to get caught up in day to day life away from the blog.  I've had a rough holiday - a tumor was discovered in my Daddy's throat right before Christmas, and it has caused mass chaos in my family.  It shrouds me.  But still I feel guilty for not having my reviews posted, or participating in memes or tours.  So from now on I will try harder to stay ahead on my posting.  That way, when things like this come up and I am too busy to devote the time to my blog that I would like to, I will have some reviews ready to fill in the gaps.  Post scheduling will become one of my new best friends in 2011.
  • Comment more!  I am such a lurker, y'all!  I love to read everyone's blogs and usually do it on the go or as I'm getting ready to walk out the door, and so I don't find myself taking the time to leave as many comments as I would like to, in order to let the other bloggers out there know how awesome I think that they are.  And yet I love getting meaningful comments from my readers.  I vow to do this more often.
  • Features  I have a couple of ideas bouncing around in my head for some features that I would like to include on my blog in 2011.  Stay tuned.
  • Touching Up  I have a lot of half-finished projects sitting around waiting to be fixed up and added to the blog.  Most of it is informational type stuff:  cleaning up my policies and adding more personal touches to the rest of it.
  • Participate  in more blog tours and other fun events.  I am hoping that this will also help force me to fulfill my first promise of blogging more.

I will also continue to keep my reviews spoiler-free, and I hope that I can provide respectable opinions in which readers can trust without giving away surprises or ruining the fun of discovering a book for oneself.

  2. Great resolutions! I think your blog is wonderful... keep it up.... and of course I'd love to hear more from you on my blog too! I think the blogging community is a great way to make new friends and get feedback on stuff...

  3. Great goals! I haven't posted mine yet, but I also plan to comment more instead of lurking. I tend to put most of my energy towards posting in our group on GR. xD I should balance it out a bit more.
