Can you believe that October is over already? I saw Christmas decorations at the store the other day. Yikes! Why is the year rushing by so fast? Wasn't it summer a second ago? Let's slow down and take a minute to see how things went for me in October.
In order to meet my Goodreads goal of 100 books, I need to read 8.33 books per month. According to Goodreads, I've read 2 books this month. Not even close:
- Led Astray by Kelley Armstrong
- Bitter Bite by Jennifer Estep
On the Blog
Took part in the Blog Ahead Challenge hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup. While I didn't do as well as I'd hoped, I did get some posts written and scheduled, plus have several more in draft form that just need to be polished and posted. Since I've been scrambling at the last minute to write posts, I'm counting this as a win!
Going to try a new posting schedule. Instead of following my usual MWF schedule, I'm going to post every other day. I ended October on a pretty erratic note, so maybe being more consistent will get me back on track.
Started a new feature about my journal collection! I have an entire cabinet full of blank journals, so thought I'd start sharing some of the more interesting ones with you. Check out my introduction post and let me know what you think!
Did even worse with visiting other blogs and commenting than I did last month. Think I'm going to try a little experiment and see if that will help get me back on track. And maybe a spreadsheet. Spreadsheets always help!
Think that I'd give myself a C- for October. Didn't read all of the books I had planned on reading, but did manage to write several reviews. Have I caught up? Not even close! But at least it's a start, and I'm eternally optimistic that I can do better. Like Scarlett O'Hara once said, tomorrow is another day!
