Book Blogger New Year's Challenge Day 1: My Book Blogger Resolutions

I'm sick and had nothing better to do on NYE than look for even more book blogs to follow and I stumbled upon Parajunkee.com and her Book Blogger's Challenge. We'll see if I'm able to keep up with the challenge of posting for 14 straight days! Seems like a good challenge and a good exercise for me as I try to get my blog moving forward, right?

Here are my Book Blogger Resolutions for 2014

  • Post one review a week so hopefully a year from now there are 52 reviews.
  • Post a quote once a week that inspires me.
  • Post a rundown of my week in media in Saturday Snapshots.
  • Promote local bookish events.

Seems like a strong start to 2014!

  3. I like your inspirational quote a week idea - I find so many throughout the week and while I'll sometime remember to tweet them more often then not I'm like "Does anyone remember that quote I'm trying to remember?"

    Good luck on your resolutions!!

    1. As an English major, I love quotes! I wish I was braver about marking my books up so I can find quotes later.

  4. I don't think I ever manage one review a week. Real life always winds up grabbing me and taking me away from the online world *sigh*

    Good luck with your resolutions. I like the last one about promoting local book events. I wish there was a blog near me doing the same!

    Happy new year!

    1. I'm hoping with the scheduling of posts I can manage 1 review a week. We'll see what happens. I'm a newbie so I might have some expectations that are beyond my ken!

  10. Best of luck on your goals! Where are you located? I wish I knew bloggers near me, as I'd love to attend events with them (instead of a bratty, hyperactive toddler with a candy addiction).

    2. Well, Terri, you're off to a good start with the 14 Day challenge. No doubt that it will help you to hone your blogging skills and will help you fulfil your resolutions for 2014. Don't be afraid to stir up the opinions of your readers. A common complaint is that most social networks are echo chambers. A great blog should be more than a lot of thumbs ups, etc. I'm enjoying you reviews and look forward to reading more. Sincerely, Joe
