Book Blogger Confessions is a meme that allows book bloggers to discuss issues unique to what we encounter in the blogging world. Every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month we will post a question and invite you to answer, comment and discuss opinions and different views.
Please keep the dialogue courteous. No bashing!

Question: Happy 2013! What are your blogging goals for the new year? Are you making any changes or testing out new ideas for reviews or organization? Have you joined any challenges?
What are the trends you noticed in blogging from 2012 and what do you hope to see for the blogging community in 2013?
Answer: Oh boy. Goals huh? We're supposed to have goals? I'd be happy just to be able to continue, lol. Seriously though, I'm more of a fly by the seat of my pants blogger. I'm pretty laid back and the thought of the tight schedules that other bloggers adhere to make me hyperventilate. I wish I could be uber organized, but I doubt that will happen with blogging.
However, I would like to get around to some of the features I've been planning and to resurrect some of the ones I haven't done in a while like Childhood Thrills and Midnyte Finds.
I also think that I want to read what I want to read at my own pace. I don't take review requests as it is, but I often think that I get so involved in other people's recommendations that I've neglected a lot of books that I might have otherwise read. I also don't want to feel pressured to read fast just because I want to or feel the need to provide a review on my blog. I want to relax and enjoy reading more!
To see the Challenges I've joined just look on my sidebar or click HERE.
Trends I saw: It seems to me I saw a lot of book tours in 2012. I don't usually pay too much attention to them because once I read one or two reviews, I'm pretty much aware of the book. But they do serve their purpose and I participate in a book tour once in a while as well. In 2013 I would just like to see more professionalism and respect towards everyone in the book community.
