Saturday Conversations: Hitting the Wall

Saturday Conversations: Hitting the Wall   Time for a break… One of my goals for 2014 is to keep up Saturday Conversations and open the spot up for guest posts, etc. Another one of my goals is to spend less time working on the blog and more time reading. Unfortunately, right now those goals are working against one another, and my reading time is losing the battle. In addition, “real life” is completely busy and stressful right now, and I feel like I barely have anytime to sit and enjoy a book. This week alone, I’ve read at most 15 minutes a day. This makes me sad. Frankly, my Saturday Conversations posts aren’t pulling...

Saturday Conversations: Book Blog Walkers

Saturday Conversations: Book Blog Walkers Join the Movement I do NOT make New Year’s Resolutions. I am NOT going on a diet. I will not make a commitment to do something unrealistic. With that said, I’ve decided that I need to make a few changes in my life. Whereas I used to be someone that never had a weight problem and liked to workout, I never gave it much thought. But over the past few years, things have changed for me. I now find myself uncomfortable a lot of the time. I am terribly out of shape, and I want to get some of my fitness back so that I can keep up with...

Saturday Conversations: 2014 Goals

Saturday Conversations: 2014 Goals The Year Ahead Welcome to 2014! With the start of another year, it’s time for me to take a look at my blogging and reading goals. I don’t call them challenges, because I don’t want to be “forced” to read anything just to meet the challenge. Instead, I set goals for myself and the blog; things that I want to accomplish, but on my own terms. So without further ado… here are my plans for 2014: GoodReads Reading Challenge… 100 Books. Okay, so this is a challenge by name. In the past, I’ve set up a goal of reading one book per week, so 52 books. However, I usually get several...

Saturday Conversations: Reading Challenges

Saturday Conversations: Reading Challenges Reading Challenges I realize that it’s only September and there are still over three months left in 2013. However, I’ve already been thinking a lot about next year. First… I am already starting to schedule reviews for January 2014… That’s right! My personal review schedule is pretty much set through the end of this year. Earlier this week, I received an ARC for a book that comes out in January. I also sat down and looked at the upcoming release schedule, adding in slots for “must read” books that I auto-purchase. Second… I just completed my GoodReads book challenge this week. I finished my 75th book – and my...

Reading & Blogging Goals for 2012

Reading & Blogging Goals for 2012 The NEW YEAR has arrived and everything starts anew. All the book lists reset to zero and there are so many possibilities. READING CHALLENGES: After my failed attempt to complete a reading challenge last year, I have opted not to participate, other than my usual goal of reading one book per week – so a goal of 52 books in 2012. I’ve added the GoodReads widget to my sidebar to help monitor that goal. TRY SOMETHING NEW: I have heard about and met so many great authors in the past year, and I want to read new-to-be authors and stories.  My goal is to read 12 new-to-me authors over...
