Finally Becoming Professional

How many blog posts have I started this last few months with something along the lines of “I’m sorry I wasn’t more active, …?” Way too many, that’s for sure.

And I don’t want to do this anymore! I love writing for my blog, I love writing and reading comments, being with you all on twitter and everywhere else.  I’ve really missed it this past weeks and I’ve made some changes to ensure I’ll post more.

I can’t promise they’ll help since the reason for my absence is mental health related, but I really want them to work!

First Adjustment

I’ve finally written an editorial calendar. Yes, I know, I know. I should’ve done that in the beginning, but I thought I could work without one. Creative chaos and all that. Turns out I can but I can’t work well without one.

So, I’ve written one. I’ll probably make a pretty one as well and if I do I’ll post it for you. In this calendar I’ve put down everything I could think of – Writing and posting of reviews of course, but there’s a fixed day for replying to emails and noting things down as well. Among other things. So you may expect a regular-ish posting theme from now on! Yay.

Second Adjustment

Social Media needs to become a bigger part of Books to get lost in. I am active on twitter (that’s the one I’m most active on), but I’ve got accounts on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram as well. If you’re interested you can follow my tumblr as well, but that’s a big mess of everything so be prepared.

Third Adjustment

I’m self-studying modern calligraphy (if you follow my Instagram you may have seen it already). But I didn’t make enough time for it. And since I want my reviews to look more like my reviews I’ll use calligraphy for them. I don’t know why I haven’t thought of this way sooner… But I’m starting right away with this adjustment – as you have seen at the beginning of this post. But I need a free hosting site for this. So if you know any…?

Forth Adjustment

It’s a thing I’ve done before, really. I will blog about my hauls and write a monthly overview as well. But I won’t show you books I’ve bought, or not just books I’ve bought. I’ll blog about additions to my TBR from now on as well. I’m thinking of doing this once a month right now… So now I’ll have to note when I put which book to my tbr. Luckily Goodreads has a date added feature!

Fifth Adjustment

The Top Ten Tuesday meme will appear on my blog again. But only if the week’s theme is of interest to me. So there will be Tuesdays without a TTT. Why should I blog about things I don’t enjoy blogging about? Which brings me to my last adjustment:

Sixth Adjustment

Find the fun in blogging again! Because it’s there. Blogging is fun and interesting and challenging and I just really enjoy doing it. I just need to remind myself from time to time of this.

Are there any things you have changed about your blogging style?

Or maybe you even have some tips for me?
