Become More Social
Being social is something I really struggle with, both online and in person. I’m great at chatting when someone initiates conversation, but I suck at pushing myself out there and getting involved in Twitter or the general blogging world. I try, I really do.. But then I see other people just completely excelling at it and I can’t help but think, “Why can’t I be more like that??” So starting now, I’m revving things up, and pushing my social activity to a whole new level!
Comment on More Blogs
I suppose this falls under “Become More Social”, but whatever. Right now I am usually pretty good at commenting whenever I have something to say, but I really want to find more blogs to read and comment on! And I’m making it a clear goal to always comment on everything I read. Okay, that probably won’t happen, but I’m going to try my very best!
Clean up my RSS Reader
I’m actually afraid to check out my RSS reader because it’s a mess. I’m going to clean it up, stick to the blogs I read and like, and use that to help fulfill my “comment” resolution!
Utilize Google Calendar
I have actually started doing this already! When HarperTeen exploded on Edelweiss, I found myself really, REALLY overwhelmed with review copies. I just didn’t know where to begin. So I plotted all my books onto Google Calendar, sorted them by release date, and worked from there. Then I had a pretty good idea of what to read first and when I had to read which books by. It doesn’t mean I’ll always go in order, but it helps a lot!
Read These Books…
This is just a small, select list of the books that have been sitting on my shelf for a while!
- The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
- Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
- Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
- Wither by Lauren DeStefano
- The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
- Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman
Do More Custom WordPress Work
I have done some custom WordPress work for a few blogs already, but I plan to more officially announce my services in a few weeks!
