Then put your name on the linky, grab the button, and follow, follow, follow as many people as you can! If someone comments and says they're following you, be a dear and follow back -- it's all about spreading the love during Follow Friday! :)

This week's question is:

WHAT ARE YOUR NEW YEARS BOOK BLOGGING RESOLUTIONS?

I actually have a lot of them, but I'm going to [try to] keep my list simple.

  1. Comment more on blogs I stalk. I usually only comment the people who comment me, or when I REALLY have something I need to say. But mostly I just read and lurk. I get lazy with all the clicking and typing that is involved in commenting. xD I stalk some really awesome people and I don't let them know how much I love their blogs enough!
  2. Read and review in a more timely manner. I used to read a book and pop out a review within hours of finishing the book. But now it takes me a couple of days. While that's not a bad thing (it lets me settle my emotions a bit), I tend to get lazier when I sit on reviews for more than a day.
  3. Stop being lazy. Jeebus, I'm only in my 5th month and I think I can take the award for laziest blogger ever. xD 
  4. Socially network... better. :P I suck at Twitter and having conversations via twitter. :/ I suck at advertising. So I'm gonna try and step it up!
  5. More interviews. I love the interviews I've done, but I would like to get some more up. 
  6. Limit review requests. I have such a huge TBR and I hate not reviewing in a timely manner. :/ 
  7. Ties in with six - Learn to pace myself better (reading pile/blog-wise) during hectic weeks, like midterms and finals. That way when I have to take my "blogging exiles", I'll still have things up on the blog. 


Okay yeah I said I'd keep it short. << Guess I failed, haha.

Just for the record, you totally made my night with your comment! :) Thank you for following!

I think we're really going to connect over this laziness issue. Is that something all readers share or just a select few?

Loving your blog already, consider me a minion!

Hahhaa, I have almost the same problem with you, I hate dealing with captcha so I rarely comment when I'm in my lazy mood.

Anna said...

Maybe we should try to up our twitter skills together!I also suck there and twitter is really one of the best ways to socialize more!

Happy New Year Kristina!

Nice list Kristina:) I need to comment on more of the blogs I stalk too. I'm starting to more:) Same with the reading and reviewing, I need to stop being lazy and finish a review. I actually printed out calenders for 2011 where I put what I'm going to post on my blog for that month/date. It actually seems to be helping a lot with the review laziness. We should totally social network together. I go on to twitter once a day and post like one thing and then I'm done, so I'm gonna try to be a conversationalist:) Good luck with your goals and happy new year!
