What are you're book blogging resolutions?

1. Post More Reviews
I haven't been that great at posting consistent reviews, so I'd love to have reviews up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. In 2011 I'll (hopefully) be managing my time better so this goal is definitely possible.

2. Comment on Blogs
I'm absolutely terrible at this! I'm always creeping around the blogosphere and reading everyone's posts, but I don't comment a lot. I was trying to make sense of this yesterday, but there's no good explanation. So now when I read a post I will comment!

3. Don't Be Afraid!
I've only emailed one publisher asking about review copies and I was pretty much flipping out when I hit the send button. I always feel like I'm bugging them and that's I'm just this huge inconvenience. In 2011 I hope to learn that it's their job, as long as I'm polite and understand that they're busy, that I can email them. (This will totally take some work!)

  1. I totally agree with you on all of those. My reviews are really inconsistent, and I really need to work on that.

    Happy New Year! I hope you reach all of your goals for 2011, and I hope it's awesome for you :D

  2. Aw thank you Cicely!
    I hope you have an amazing New Year too! :)

  3. Good luck with all your book blog resolution, especially the #3.

    Me myself have to work really hard for book review.

    Hope you have another marvelous year ahead

  4. Thanks Aleetha!
    I hope you have an absolutely great year too! :)

  5. I am so with you. I get so nervous when emailing publishers/authors (I double-check the email over and over, and hesitate over sending it)! I'm always astonished if they say yes.

    Hope you have a fantastic year! :)

  6. Great resolutions. I totally agree with #3. It is really scary and I should probably get over that fear.

  7. Great resolutions. I could really work on #2. I'm horrible for being a creep for blogs but never commenting.

    Have a Happy New Year Katie <3

  8. Hey Lauren! Totally! It's like worse stress then turning in a test or something! haha
    Thank you! Have an amazing year! :)

    Thanks Lisa!

    Hey Akasha!
    We'll have to help each other out on commenting! lol
    Happy New Year Akasha! <3

  9. Good Luck with your goals. I have many of the same.

  10. Hoppin on by, good luck with your resolutions!
    I need to comment more on those I stalk as well instead of just lurking in the shadows.
    Have a wonderful and safe New Years!

  11. Thanks Kristina!

    Thank you Crystal! Yes lurking in the shadows describes it perfectly! haha

    Happy New Year guys!! :)

  12. Number 3 is a good one for me. I have never contacted a publisher. I alawys feel I haven't been around long enough, or have a good enough blog but your right - it can't hurt to ask, just send the request!

  13. Totally! Those are my worries too, I'm just going to keep telling myself that it's fine to contact them lol

  14. Great resolution not to be afraid. I suffer from the same problem.
    Happy New Years!

  15. Wishing you a lovely New Year darling.
