Reviewing My Reading Goals and Resolutions for 2017


An important part of setting goals is reviewing them, so today I thought I would go over my goals and resolution for 2017 and see whether or not I met them. I feel like this is a particularly useful thing to do before I create my 2018 goals, as I can see where there is room for improvement, and where I may need to adjust my expectations.

Why I’ve Been Blogging Less


I don’t know if anyone’s noticed (maybe no one has, in which case this is a pretty silly post as I’m just drawing attention to my lack of posting), but recently the amount that I’ve been blogging has gone down a lot.

To put some numbers on it, between January and May I was averaging 14 blog posts a month (looking back, I wonder how I managed to do that many!). In June, I managed 9. July was an all-time low: I only wrote 5 posts that month. The amount of content that I’ve been putting out on this blog has dropped by a significant amount.

Blogger Recognition Award


I was delighted to spot about a month or so ago (I’m terrible at doing tags in a timely fashion!) that my lovely friend Steph from A Little But A Lot had tagged me in the Blogger Recognition Award, and my WordPress hadn’t notified me that she’d linked to my blog!

Other Bloggers and Blogmas

To be honest, I’m not 100% certain when Blogmas finishes – if it’s the 24th, the big day itself, the end of December. However, personally I think I am going to be finishing off Blogmas here (although I have so many ideas for posts I want to write before 2017 that I might still end up uploading nearly every day before the end of the month). In order to celebrate what I view as quite an achievement, as posting every day for nearly a month is definitely a difficult commitment, I thought I would write about some other bloggers who have done Blogmas and my favourites from their posts. Celebration and trying to build other people up is definitely something I view as being in the Christmas spirit!

Five Twitter Chats for Book Bloggers

In my opinion, one of the best ways to get involved with the book community is to join Twitter and participate in some of the chats that go on every week. It’s a great way to get chatting to others with similar interests, and it’s always a lot of fun, so I would definitely recommend trying a few out. To make this easier, I thought it would be nice to post about five that I’ve seen on Twitter which you could try out if you wanted to have a go at one!
