Reading before blogging
Over the weekend I celebrated my 24th birthday and of course, I had a few wishes. Now, what would a bibliophile be without wishing for more time to read? That wish was a given.
In order to make this wish come true, I’ve decided to roll back on blogging over the next two to three weeks. By blogging less, I’ll have more time to read. I can’t bear to take a hiatus but I figured blogging less is a worthy compromise. During that time, expect to only find book reviews and my weekly recaps.
There will not be any new discussion posts or book cover features until the second week of October, or maybe even third.
I’m planning a personal read-a-thon, so I want to block off all the time I can to read. I expect the read-a-thon to last from 27th September to 10th October – exactly 14 days.
After that I want to get into the scheduling groove and will write two to three weeks worth of blog posts to set up the buffer I need to get this scheduling thing going on my blog. I’ve written about 95% of my blog posts on the day I planned for them to go live and basically hit the “publish” button. The “schedule” button has been fairly foreign to me over the past year. Since I’ve started working though, this method of blogging isn’t sustainable in the long-run, so I need to reassess the way I blog.
