Question: Resolutions: Put together your blogger resolution list for all of us to see!Oh goodness. I don't really have resolutions but let's see what some of my goals are for the years. (After I typed these I realized I have a lot of goals just off the top of my head)
- Request more physical ARCs. I requested my first few last year and received some. I've been mainly using Netgalley because usually it gives me enough books to review early. But after my first push of requesting them I fell off the bandwagon because emailing and presenting yourself well is so much pressure (and sometimes I am terrible about emailing in general).
- Read more of the blogs I subscribe to via email or unsubscribe. I recently got an email from Hotmail warning me my account was growing too large. OOPS. Something necessary I need to take care.
- Finish some damn series/read books I'm waiting for. I have this problem. Often I read my Netgalley books at the expense of the books I'm anticipating. Even though I want to request more physical ARCs I need to balance my reading life better.
- Be more social. This year has been a huge year of changes for me. I moved to Louisville, got a real-life social life, got disillusioned with Goodreads, etc, etc. This year I'm going to try to get back into Goodreads and back to commenting on my favorite blogs. I just need to find the time to catch up.
- Actually put effort into my blog's facebook page. Here's the thing, I should do better at this. I'm literally a professional, I do public relations and manage five facebook pages and four twitter accounts for my job. Somehow that makes me really lazy about doing my facebook page. The low likes number doesn't help. I'm almost embarrassed by it. (And if you want to help you can like my page here)
- When books are bad DNF. Life is too short for bad books. I need to quit trying to "win" and take back my reading time when books aren't worth it.
- Learn some more HTML/Other languages. I know enough HTML to update my work webpage and to mess around with my blog. I know enough joomla, well to update a site someone's already built (the how-to book I bought was really boring). My library has an account with Treehouse learning and I need to take advantage of that. Not only for my blog because that stuff is just good to know.
