Over the last few days I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I want to accomplish this year on the blog. Do I want to change the format? Do I want to re-vamp? What new elements do I want to incorporate? Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.
A Day in the Life of.. has been awesome for the last year and a half - and don’t worry it’s going to continue! I have some amazing authors lined up for 2013 already!
New elements I am planning:
- Recipe of the Week – featured every Friday. This is a way for me to start experimenting with the new cookbooks I was given over the holidays and to dig through the piles I already have! I’m looking forward to some really tasty food in the coming months!
- Craft of the Month – I love to craft, whether it’s knitting, sewing or crochet; I love it all! My plan is to pick a project at the start of each month and show the complete project by the end of the month! It’s ambitious I know, but it should be fun!
New Blog Schedule:
Monday – Blog Tours
Tuesday – Review
Wednesday – A Day in the Life of..
Thursday – Review
Friday – Recipe of the Week
Saturday – Review
Sunday – Nothing!
This is tentative, and could potentially change, but it’s a start!
Make sure to check out the Coming Soon tab – some fellow bloggers and I have some amazing events planned for 2013 so far and more to come!
Now for the RESOLUTIONS!
1 – Buy less books. - my TBR pile is ENORMOUS! I am not going to buy any new books this year (at least that’s the plan!) Until I’ve tackled some of the books on my lists.
2 – Read what I love. - Part way through 2012, I made some policy changes. I decided to not review or read YA anymore. I felt I was losing the genres that I love and not getting requests for them anymore. I’m really happy with the direction the blog is going and I want to stick with what works.
3 – Cook/Bake more! – I LOVE to cook and bake. And I know my hubby loves it! Which is why I introduced a new Friday feature to encourage more creativity in the kitchen!
4 – Expand my genre base. - Now I know that doesn’t quite fit with #2, but I do want to expand my subgenre reading within the genres I read/review.
5 – Worry less. - This goes both for the blog and my personal life!
