Have you guys noticed my absence this past week? I apologize for that. To make it simple, I was overwhelmed. I was just getting back from a vacation, my oldest was returning to school and then there are a few curve balls life has thrown me. So again, sorry. With my apology being put out there, I wanted my first post of the year to be my blog-olution (blog New Year’s resolution). In warning it will be long and might get a little sappy.
First, a lot has changed in me and in my life since I started blogging. And truth be told, blogging is a lot different for me now than it was in the beginning. At first, I took it easy. I had few obligations in my personal life, I found the the perfect excuse to feed my book obsession (and loved it) and keeping to an every other day schedule while reading one book every other day was fun and easy. I enjoyed writing random stuff that would allow you guys to get to know me and with time, I forgot how to have fun with it.
Lately life has thrown me a few curve balls and the TiffanyLovesBooks has turned into something else. I thank all of you who have stuck with me through all of this and I ask that you continue to stick with me. To be honest my biggest blogging resolution this year is to find a way to make it fun again. To bring back the spice to this relationship… 😉 Haha… But seriously, I have a few ideas (my blog-olution) to make things better for me, and hopefully for you too- things to make it fun again.
So here it goes: first, my posting schedule will be changing. Instead of my every other day, which became very difficult to keep up with, I will be posting three times a week. No specific days, just three times a week. If there are more, then great, but that’s my quota. Next, in all of this brainstorming, I’ve realized that along the way, I lost sight of what I wanted this blog to be when I started it. I have excelled in some areas, like the Author Spotlights but I had so much more planned. Like keeping you guys updated on all the great giveaways that are going on, keep you updated on our favorite authors and stuff like that. Which is the second part of my blog-olution. I won’t lose what I have going now, but I’ll merge what I already have with the image of what I wanted this blog to be. And lastly, those of you who have regular correspondences with me know that I’m an amazing procrastinator, my goal is to be more available.
If you got to this point and read all of the crap above, I would love to hear your opinion. Do you think the changes I have in mind will have a positive effect on TiffanyLovesBooks? We there some changes you would like to see that I haven’t mentioned? Is there anything that you would absolutely disown me for if I changed or got rid of?
