I’m not usually one to make resolutions, but blogging resolutions are different! I plan to check these every month in my monthly summaries and see how I’m doing. Ticking things off a list should keep me on track
01: Post 2-3 reviews a week. I have a lot of reviews I haven’t posted. There’s something nice about seeing them all stacked up in my Google Docs, but it isn’t so nice not posting them! It doesn’t take that long to schedule some ahead of time and have them ready to go, which is what I kept meaning to do this year when I would be extra busy.
02: Keep Amazon/Goodreads updated. I haven’t been so good about posting my reviews to my Amazon and Goodreads accounts, which is something I want to be better about in 2013.
03: Make 1 vlog a month. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while, but making a video takes forever! For my first one, I probably recorded it fifteen times before I had one I was satisfied with. But practice makes perfect.
04: Post 1 personal update a week. For the past few weeks, I’ve been pondering starting a fitness blog. But there’s no way I have the time to keep up two blogs, and I don’t really want to try to crack into another blogosphere right now. Besides, I like blogs that have a personal touch behind them, because I like to get to know the person behind the blog. This weekly update can be anything, from fitness progress to writing and anything in-between.
05: Use Facebook. I am so not a Facebook person, but having likes is a good thing, and I might as well learn more about Facebook marketing. Can’t hurt.
06: Learn about SEO. Along with number 5, I want to learn about SEO this year.
07: Be more active on Twitter. This is more of a networking resolution. I tend to just read my Twitter feed and not really interact, but it’s one of the best ways to interact with fellow bloggers and authors.
