Every year, I make New Year's Resolutions and every year, I somehow fail to keep them. Despite my best intentions, something always seems to get in the way.
Because of my history of Resolution Fail, decided to try something a little different. Will continue to work on the blog goals that I started during Bloggiesta instead of proclaiming lofty goals that I'll never be able to meet. It will be a work in progress throughout the year, so that should take some of the pressure off.
I'm also going to cut back on the number of review copies I accept, as I'm putting too much pressure on myself. I have bookshelves full of unread books that keep getting pushed to the back burner because of the bright and shiny and new. Plus, I don't really like some of the blog tours out there, with their excerpt and book blast and author interview requirements. I just want to read/review the books I want, when I want.
For the review books I do accept (I know I won't be able to resist all of the requests), I'm going to schedule them using Google Calendar. I've been doing this for a few weeks now and seems to work better for me than any other method I've tried.
How about you? Did you make any New Year's Resolutions? If so, are you able to keep them? Would love to hear your secret!
