According to the interwebz, regular blog content is vital for keeping your readers interested. As for book bloggers, we are most likely to get our book requests granted when the publishers see there’s regular content on the blog, preferably with a sense of structure incorporated in it. Great, because I’m all for structure. Keeps the mind chaos at a minimum and lets your readers know what to expect.
I’ve also read on several sites that posting every day is a great strategy to get yourself ‘out there’. While I’m sure that can work great for others, it’s not something I’m planning on doing because A. I can’t read that fast, B. the posts would be meaningless mostly, being made in a rush due to C. I don’t have enough time for it, and, last but not least, D. I’m not getting paid enough (read: $0.00) to do so.
So after some experimenting this past month, I found the following schedule to be something I can work with for now:
Review Mondays – One new book review every week
Review Tuesdays – One new book review every week
Recipe Thursdays – This will definitely not become a weekly feature, but when I post a recipe, it will be on a Thursday. Hopefully on a bi-weekly basis.
Graphic Fridays – Now this is something I found at Magda’s Magic of Books. It means I will put up a mini review of a graphic novel each week.
Like Magda, I also purchased a shitload of comics through Humble Bundle, plus I keep buying physical copies as well because graphic novels are best when read in all its full coloured glory. All in all, this is a great way for me to get motivated to finally read them and for you to read something less long-winding than my usual book reviews.
As you can see, weekends are sort of off-limits for me. They’re meant for spending time with my husband, socializing and…reading. I might hustle around with the review days a little and spread them out a bit more, but as of now, Mondays and Tuesdays work best for me :). Also, I don’t know about you guys, but I generally can’t finish a 1200 paged book in one week, so when I’m reading one of those, there will probably only be one regular book review that week.
So, dear readers:
