One of my blogging goals for this year is to be more organised (I can only hope). So I’ve laid out a rough weekly schedule which I’m going to try and stick to.
Review days won’t necessarily always have a review – depending on how much reading I’ve got through – but when I do have a review to post it’ll be on one of those days.
Monday: Review Day
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday
The hugely popular meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish in which they pick a different topic each week.
Wednesday: Review Day; This Week in Books
This Week in Books is my weekly round-up which started out as the WWW Wednesdays meme but which I have now tweaked to my own format since the host cancelled it (it has since returned but I like my post). This post includes what I’ve been reading Now, Then & Next; What I’ve added to my shelves and wishlist (linking up with Stacking the Shelves), and the book I particularly can’t wait for (linking up with Waiting on Wednesday).
Thursday: Guest Post/Promo Post/Blog Tour or Bookish & Not so Bookish Thoughts
I will try to post any guest posts including author interviews, book promo posts or blog tour posts on Thursdays. If I don’t have any lined up I’ll take part in the Bookish or Not so Bookish meme, which is a really fun way of having a weekly rant about books and life. I really love that meme but my life isn’t interesting enough to find enough things to talk about every single week.
Friday: Friday Feature
Features can include spotlights of my favourite books & authors, book trends such as this one, cover love… anything goes really. I’m going to try my best to get at least 3 of these out a month.
Saturday: Lazy Saturday Review or Shop Post
I started doing ‘lazy Saturday reviews’ as a way of getting reviews done in just 30 mins, and they proved to be quite popular. They are quick and snappy and concentrate less on the plot and writing and more on my general feelings about said book. They generally end up being a bit of a rant. My fave!
Shop posts will look at any new activity going on in my Etsy Vintage Book Shop; new books I’ve found, any I’ve sold and my favourites on the shelf.
Other Regular Posts:
Monthly Round-up – Hopefully posted at the end/beginning of the month. This post also includes the following month’s hot releases.
Coming Up – Where I simply discuss the books I have lined up to read and review.
Discussion Posts/Polls – Getting the blogosphere engaged in a bookish discussion needs to happen now and again.
Di & Lipsy Do…– A collaboration with my YA BFF Di in which we have a rant about a book we’ve both read. You can call them reviews if you want…but most people wouldn’t. 😉
