#FF Feature Follow: My Blogging Resolutions

Thursday, January 9, 2014

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View & Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it will allow us to show off more blogs!

BLOGGING RESOLUTIONS

This is actually still my first week of having a blog, so instead of resolutions, I'm going to make these more of goals!

1. Schedule posts. Right now, I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants, but I think I really need to start planning stuff ahead of schedule. It just seems to make more sense in the long run!

2. Read books on my TBR shelf. I have over a hundred books on my TBR shelf, and the number just keeps going up! I CANT STOP BUYING BOOKS!!! I have a problem. I counted how many hardbound books I bought last year, and it was 167! That's just cray cray, especially when I only read 117!

3. Comment on other blog's posts! I've followed a bunch of blogs for years now, but I've always been too nervous to actually talk to anyone! But now that I know what the rush of one comment on my blog feels like, I really want to bring that kind of excitement to someone else! Totes ma gotes.

4. MEET BLOGGING FRIENDS!!! I've already met a couple that have been very nice, but honestly, I would LOVE to meet more! This blog and reading are my life! Like my friends are my parents, and yeah, my mom reads the books I read, but I need someone to hardcore fangirl with over things! Be my friend! Let me love you! :)

5. Post at least one cover puppies a week! My new feature that I have lots of plans for! I want to make at least one post a week, which I have decided will be on Thursdays so stay tuned! :)

Well, these are my blogging resolutions (or goals, whatever) for this year! :) What are yours?

You can follow me by bloglovin or gfc, whichever you prefer! Leave a comment on my blog with a link to your blog so I can visit and return the favor! :) 

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I think most bloggers have a book buying problem, lol. I definitely want to focus on reading more books from my TBR shelf this year, too. Good luck with your resolutions! :)

  7. Welcome to the blogosphere, Becca! I'm sure you'll make a lot of blogger friends since you sound like a genuinely nice person. As for getting rid of that huge TBR pile--I'm having the same problems, lol! My goal is to read at least half of my TBR shelf (I think I have 40-50?) during summer break! Good luck with your blog and I'm a new bloglovin' follower. ;)

  8. Welcome to the blogging world! I also don't want to count my TBR, yet it keeps growing :-)!
    I would like to blog hop more this year as I have never really had the confidence before.

  14. Those are awesome goals! Commenting more is definitely one I should have put on my list, but I don't know that I'd actually do more of it than I currently am. Cool that you're starting a new feature on Thurs. I have a Thurs one I do too. We should visit each other. :D Happy Friday!

  15. There are great goals. I should definitely schedule my posts and one of my goals is to comment and interact more with other bloggers.

    I love your Cover Puppies idea. I'm a new follower via GFC and twitter so I can see more.

  18. I hate to tell you this, but now that you're blogging, your TBR list is only going to get longer! LOL!! You can't escape it! I hope you meet lots of awesome bloggers and build up some great relationships - the best way to do that is just go commenting on some of your favorite blogs often. You'll figure out quickly who always comments back and you end up building a rapport with them. I have several book blog buddies that started out that way! :-)

  19. To think of all those unread books you have lying around... I love it when I have stacks of unread books. It is so nice to be able to choose to read a book that matches your feeling at the moment. Somedays I feel like reading a classic and others I feel more like reading fantasy or young adult...

    1. Oooh I love it too! I never really thought about it that way!! :)

  20. You think over a hundred books in your TBR is bad, I'm nearly hitting 1,000. I just keep adding more and more, and I own over 300 unread books. It's sad but I hope maybe to get through half if I'm lucky. We have a lot of similar resolutions, I'm trying to socialize more and not be neglectful which can happen when I'm solely focused on writing posts. I hope you get to accomplish all your blogging goals!!

  24. I have yet to meet a blogger who doesn't have a book buying problem!! I own over 2000 books and I can't say that I've read even half of them. But, at least I'll never run out of reading material!

    I'm making a conscious effort to comment more on blogs as well. I'm committing to commenting on at least 10 blogs a day. Actual thoughtful comments. :)

    1. That's very true! Ah I wish I owned that many! I think I have just passed the 600 mark on owning books! Yeah, I meant actual meaningful comments as well!

    I love the scheduling resolution. I did the first time with this FF. Of course I schedule it for 15 minutes after I wrote it but it helped me see how to work it and if it actually would post. So, I agree I will be scheduling more post instead as you stated "flying by my pants"!
