Hosted by Kayla at The Eclectic ElementSlapdash Sunday is a day for your proverbial week 'leftovers.' Is there something you wanted to say, but just forgot? Is there something you want to write about, but isn't worth a whole page? Do you have a random thought, funny or otherwise that needs to be written down?
That is what Slapdash Sunday is for!
Today's Topic: Changes for 2011?
December/January will be one year of book blogging/reviewing for me. I have learned so much about this new world, mostly from all of you, who answered my endless questions, but feel that I am doing something wrong as far as time allotment. Take reviews for an example. I draft it until I make edits after edits and even some more edits. I post it on the main post of blog, cut and paste for my Navigation Tab, cut and paste for the following GR, LT, and shelfari. It seems like it takes me forever. Am I doing this issue wrong? Where do you post all of your reviews.
I have also learned that I won't be entering into so many challenges. Thinking back, I thought it would be a breeze and that I could get all of the challenges completed, or if not, maybe close. I really thought that requests for reviews would be scarce. WRONG!! I think I also have to modify my "Review Policy" but not sure how to do this and be fair at the same time. Say you get a book that is being published around 00/00/00 but some indie authors have also contacted you to read and review their book a month before. Do you read the ones with dates first, and push the indie author down on the list? I thought that if I read and reviewed as they were delivered to my house, it would be the accommodating to all and somewhat fair, but not sure if that is right!!
As you know I participate in many memes sometimes 4 in a day. I usually do a separate post for each meme. Since it is you, the wonderful people that visit and comment, I was wondering, would you rather I put all the memes in one post or separate them as I do now?
One more thing, I enjoy this meme because the topic can be anything you want it to be. Would you be interested in something like this, with a little bit different twist, name, (would have to come up with the icon but I am getting better at that) and make it a blog hop. I think it would be interesting what "Topic" others would want to talk about on their blog. I usually respond to comments via email but with this meme, I respond from the blog so that it is a "discussion". Just a thought to see if you would be interested. I would love to host it.
I have loved every minute since joining this community but still consider myself a novice. Any advice, ideas and/or suggestions that you think I should change, stay status quo, do differently, etc etc,. would be greatly appreciated. This is not only my blog, but your's too. You are the wonderful people that visit and leave the fantastic, thoughtful, funny and interesting comments. 2011 is just 2 months away so want to start on my new year's resolutions/changes.
