Oh how I wish I had goals and strategies to make my blog better, more appealing and more fun. I wish I could think of awesome challenges like this one I'm participating in or great features like Tune in Tuesdays and Stacking the Shelves. But I stretch myself to the point that I'm just happy when I can read a book and get a post up. However, I have been thinking about plans for my blog lately, whether or not I'll actually implement them or not is a different story.
-Change my review format. I'm getting tired of not being able to be more clever with my reviews or insightful. How many ways can I express what I love about a book? I want to come up with something different. I'm thinking of just a list or maybe even participate in the Short and Tweet meme.
-Get back to doing some features such as Midnyte Snack. I mean, I love food and I love books. It should be a no brainer. Oh wait...I don't like to cook. That's it! But maybe I can just buy the food already made.
-Think outside the box. I would really like to learn more about blogging and get fresh ideas. Felicia from The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog t old me about Bloggy Boot Camp. It's a bit pricey, but I'd still like to go. I've actually started researching where I can take additional Blogging classes and workshops.
-Use Instagram and Pinterest more. (Self explanatory.)
-Further contemplate moving to Wordpress. I sometimes wonder if I should just take the plunge. Most everyone who has done so tells me I should as well. I would like to implement all the cool gadgets, and not have to worry about the minor formatting issues I've encountered anymore. But I also feel - If it ain't broke why fix it?
What do you think about my ideas? I'd love any advice. What are some steps you'll be taking with your own blog?
