I am Contemplating Changes | Sunday Summary #29

I have begun working on my goals for 2017.

The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.

I am actually a bit overwhelmed contemplating all the things I would love to do with my blog in the new year. The reality is that I will probably reduce the number of regular posts I do for awhile, in order to give me time to explore other improvements & upgrades. I am already playing around with some different options for my review format. My main goals are to improve the quality of what is available on the blog and establish better social media habits.


I feel that by reducing the pressure to churn out posts, I can work on becoming a better blogger. Then I can increase my posting schedule again.



"Sci-Fi Month is a month-long blog event, that I [Rinn Reads] hosted for the first time in 2013, created to celebrate everything amazing about science fiction. From TV shows to movies, books to comics, and everything else in between, it was intended to help us share our love and passion for this genre and its many, many fandoms. It was such a success – and I honestly wasn’t expecting that many people to join in – that people were already asking in December whether it would be held again the next year!


Sci-Fi Month has a schedule that all participants can add to, meaning everyone can clearly see what is being posted each day. This also encourages participants to comment on and visit other blogs." You can also follow on Twitter @SciFiMonth and/or #RRSciFiMonth

Exploring Cyberspace

"Lately I looked at my Goodreads challenge and I was surprised by the number showing up. I've read 78 books yet and it's the middle of the year!!!! For someone it might not be much but for me it's record. That's crazy! I don't even know how that happened because I had uni, I was getting enough sleep as well as social life. Though I think I might know what it did so let's jump right to my tips and tricks on how to read more books. I know you want to read faster. We all have that big TBR pile that's threatening us with cruel death."
"If you’ve ever been to a blogging workshop, I’m sure you’ve inevitably heard someone in the crowd ask, “What social media sites should I use?”. The answer seems to always be, “Whichever ones you enjoy using.” If you’re like me, that pretty much means none of them. So, what do you do?"
