Book Blogger Confessions #3


Book Blogger Confessions is a meme hosted by Tiger from All Consuming Books and Karen from For What It's Worth Reviews to discuss issues unique to book bloggers.  To find out details, click HERE.

Q. Deadlines for reviewing and blogging. Do you set them? How do you keep them? What do you do if you can't meet a deadline?

A: What is this deadline you speak of? 
 
So, no.  I don't do deadlines on my blog.  I really admire bloggers who do though.  They use google calender and are able to do their memes at the same time each week.  Wow!  That's amazing to me.  I usually try to post two book reviews a week and for some reason I'm usually able to post them on Mondays and Thursdays.  I think it's just the way things have fallen, but I didn't set out to do that purposefully.  If for some reason I actually have more than two written, I'll schedule it for a date ahead of time, because sooner or later I'll fall behind since I'm a slow reader. 
 
If I can't even manage two book reviews a week, I feel a bit bummed, a bit of a blogger failure.  I become even more envious of the quick reading bloggers who seem to write reviews faster than a speeding bullet, but then I just shrug my shoulders and I don't let it worry me too much.  I'm using this blog to talk about books and to have fun and therefore, I try not to rush myself.

Same here. I feel like if I did use google docs and schedule way in advance it would make me a super organized person but I just can't do it.
I am organized in my own way. I'm not really falling behind because ultimately this is a hobby and I don't want to get crazy about it.

Oh don't feel like a blogger failure with deadlines..sometimes with this hobby it feels like a job so I don't post all the time.

I prefer Mon/Thurs as review days, too. :)

The deadline/scheduling habit is a hard one to break. I'm trying to be more flexible and less hard on myself, but it's hard! I like the Monday/Thursday setup too, though I fell into a Tuesday/Thursday thing for a while.

Well yeah it's hard. And I feel like when you read books that are a little harder to get through, it's tough to review a zillion of them per week.
