The last BBAW prompt is about goals. Tell us and this is really important, in 50 words or less what you love best about your blog! And then in 50 words or less where you want your blog to be by the next BBAW!
On October 19th, it will be two years since I started this book blog. I wanted a place to record the books I read and to remember why I did or didn't like a particular book. It sort of just evolved after that.
For the most part I'm happy with my little corner of the book blogging world. I think my reviews have gotten better, and I've learned to temper a negative review with positives.
Like most others, I'd like to have more readers. I need to be better about commenting on, and not just reading, reviews on other blogs. I also want to be better about acknowledging those who comment here. I've become friends with other bloggers when one of us answers or responds to comments and I think it makes our experiences with the book blogging community richer.
I also want to move back into reviewing books because I choose to read them, not because I agreed to post a review on a set date. Sometimes you need to be in a certain mood to read a particular book, and I’ve learned that I don’t always enjoy reading under pressure.
The last two years have been a lot of fun and I look forward to watching this next year unfold.
What about you? Do you have specific goals for the next year?
I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.
