3rd Times A Charm

I’m going to be honest right off the bat: this is my third blog (technically fourth if you count my nonexistent Youtube channel).  

Every time I start a new blog, life seems to get in the way and then I forget about my blog for months until I remember, “Hey, missy, what are you doing? You haven’t blogged for five months!” At first, I thought it was because I was losing interest in the world of blogging, but that’s simply not the case. I realized that I was beginning to blog for other people and not for myself. I would pay more attention to the views I get instead of the content I post, and every time my subconscious realized this, I stopped blogging. 

This go round, I’m through with writing for other people. While it’s nice to keep up with my reading audience and give in to what I think is “cool” to blog, they don’t actually matter if I’m not happy.  

I have a lot of goals for this blog, which is first and foremost a book blog, though I do plan to write more about my day-to-day life. 

My blog goals:

  1. Write more book reviews for books that I’m actually excited about and not books that have been hyped by other members of the community. 
  2. Do more discussion posts. 
  3. Interact with the book community a lot more (comment and actually read other people’s blogs). 
  4. Actually make an effort to post more than twice every five months. 
  5. Most importantly, have fun while working on this blog. 

With these five goals in mind, I am ready to go!

Welcome to my blog, and remember leave no book behind!
