Saturday Conversations: Hitting the Wall

Saturday Conversations


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 in many readers lately. Whether it is the subject matter, the day of the week, or any number of factors, the bottom line is that I’m spending a lot of time putting together posts, and it’s become a chore without any rewards. The purpose of the feature was to engage my blog readers and form a “conversation,” but it just isn’t happening.

So with that, I am going to be pulling back on my Saturday Conversations feature for a while. I will continue to post my end-of-month updates on my goals and #bookblogwalkers. I also plan to do some quickie reviews on Saturdays. (I’m not going to commit at this point, but I have something planned for a serialized book that is coming out soon!) Hopefully, once things settle down, I can return to my conversation feature. Meanwhile, look for me on Twitter and Facebook, so we can chat any day of the week!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I generally don’t worry about posting on the weekends because I don’t get as much feed back either. I think the weekends people are out and about. Maybe move this feature to a weekday and skip posting on the weekends.

    I truly use Saturdays as a spill over day. If I have an extra review laying around I’ll post it on Saturday. Or if my two part time reviewers submit a review I post them on Saturdays because between me and Jonetta we have the weekdays covered.

    • Thanks Jennifer! I may place the Conversations feature on another day, but for now, I just need to step back and enjoy reading. 🙂

    I find weekends to be hit or miss. I know I don’t post any “major” reviews on the weekends or if I do, I make sure to promote them more during the week.
    Maybe we should start a blogger rule about weekends posts. LOL. Also, when the weather finally improves, the weekend might be a total loss except for a few loyal readers.

    I admit, I read it on the weekends, but I don’t post until Monday, if I respond. I think most people use the weekends for personal catch-up and tend to not be checking online blogs. In fact, I am more hit or miss on Facebook on the weekends than during the week.
