Parajunkee is hosting a Book Blogger New Year's Challenge to start 2014 off on a good note! I may not be able to participate every day, but will do my best to visit everyone else!
Day 10: New Things You Will Be Doing This Year
I only have a couple of new things that I'll be trying out on my blog this year:
Inspired by Jaime over at Jaime Loves Stuff, I've decided to start emailing replies to any comments I receive. It only works if your email address is attached to your blogger account, otherwise it's listed as a No-Reply email. Since few people have the time to stop back to see if there's a response to their comments (me included!), sending an email only takes me a few extra minutes. Granted, I just copy & paste the reply I post on my blog, but at least this way they know that I've responded. Is this too pushy, or good idea? I've gotten a few responses that seem to like it, so hopefully no one gets mad and thinks I'm spamming their mailbox!
I've also committed to visiting every blog who leaves me a comment, so that I can return the comment love. I've had a few people I can't find, but most seem to have blogger accounts or are nice enough to leave me their links.
On a personal note, we recently bought a Nutribullet to help us eat more fruits and veggies. It's only day four, but so far so good! I think we've already eaten more spinach in the past 3 days than we've eaten in 3 years, so counting that as a win! *L*
