What’s on Repeat: Shape of You ¦ Despacito ¦ Chantaje
Did I complete my goals?
In my last recap, I listed my goals for the month of February. One of my main goals was to get on a blogging schedule and stick to it, which I kinda (?) did. I made an overly ambitious schedule that required me to post everyday and made a bank of post ideas to work on. This worked for the first 9 days, but I burnt out soon after resulting in an inconsistent schedule.
What I learned: While posting everyday did increase the number of views I received, it isn’t worth the burn-out and inconsistency. Also- I really need to work on a promotional schedule/system that doesn’t take me too long to set up because setting up Hootsuite did not help with my burn-out.
What now? After tweeting a poll, I discovered that most people prefer 2-3 posts a week.
What did I read/review?
Books I received for review:
The Princess and the Page via Christina Farley ¦ Garden of Thorns via Blog Tour/NetGalley ¦ Island of Exiles via EntangledTeen ¦ Off the Ice via EntangledTeen ¦ Secrets of a Reluctant Princess via EntangledTeen ¦ Ensnared via NetGalley ¦ Paper Hearts via NetGalley
On the blog:
It’s always important to spread the love! Here are a couple posts that I loved:
Jessica @ The Book Bratz convinced me to Help Bring a Bookstore to the Bronx (after my next paycheck!)
Alice @ Arctic Books put together a visually pleasing February Uppercase unboxing and review!
SERIESous Book Reviews created one of my favorite Perfect Match, ‘if you like this, then try this’, posts.
A Small Wardrobe wowed me with her minimalist One Week of OOTDs.
Since I have many personal goals in March, I will be keeping my bookish goals to a minimum! I learned a lot in February and plan to apply this knowledge to the future.
- Read all the books I was sent to review
- This will be the hardest, but since I’m not currently watching any shows on Netflix I should be able to do it.
- Post 2-3 times a week
- I definitely do not want to burn out again!
- Create an easy promotional plan
- I want to start utilizing Pinterest on top of Twitter, but often find myself dreading scheduling tweets or taking pictures. My plan is to try out a couple of systems to see which one will ease the dread.
- Anything, please!
