Hi everyone!! How are you? I hope you’re doing well since the last time I’ve spoken to you guys, which wasn’t that very long ago actually. 🙂 Today, I wanted to talk a bit about blogging habits… a bit more of an unconventional topic, though perhaps?? I don’t even know what inspired this post, honestly, but it’s something that I was wondering if anyone else had dealt with? Blogging, as we all know, takes much time and there are certain things you need to work on regularly, of course, like blog posts. But that’s not the only thing that goes with blogging! There are so many aspects to it which I am TOTALLY BEHIND ON, apart from blog posts (though I’ve been getting better at preparing blog posts so YAY), that can still be important! And I wanted to share those today!!
Tags and awards.
WHY AM I WRITING THIS POST is the true question here?? I’m like revealing my true procrastinating self here, that’s not very good for my image oops. 😛
But okay, the amount of tags I have from this year and the past two years is INSANE. I’ve lost count of what I’ve been tagged in and when, gosh I haven’t so much as opened a tag in so long! There are so many I’ve accumulated, and I just don’t know where to start haha.
Updating my menu bar/categories
My categories are kind of a mess? I definitely want to make things simpler for people to find, and less confusing! Mostly I’ve been procrastinating on that one because I just recently added a category and now I have to go through my published posts to add them to the category and I CRY. Question: How did you guys organize your posts??? Feel free to let me know how I can improve my categories/menu bar!
Keeping up with other blog posts
I promiseeeeee I will be better with this!! I AM TRYING I PROMISE. I’m super super behind on so many blogs? Binge commenting will be a very very huge part of my blogging life for a very long time. Thankfully it’s the summer and although I’m not free persay because I’ve taken a summer course and I have work, etc. I am more free than I was which is something!! So more blog hopping YAYYY. I’ve missed reading everyone’s posts so much. *cries*
Updating my sidebar
This, too, hasn’t been updated in forever, much like my categories! WHY AM I SO BEHIND ON THINGS. WordPress is pretty easy to use, and there are lots of widgets options, etc, and I’ve been meaning to make my sidebar more cleaner and neat, because not only is that better for YOU but also I feel like it’s way too cluttered?? So DECLUTTERING YES. Someone push me to do this?
Updating my review index.
So I saw in my stats the other day there were people clicking on my review index pages? And um *laughs nervously* I’m honestly scared as to what they found there??
like my old reviews
Not anything bad, mind you, but like I haven’t went as much to CLICK on them since 2015 or 2016, let alone update them with more recent and recent-ish reviews?
Just the horrible old reviews that I never want to look at ever I totally want to spruce it up a bit more, make it fit with my theme and make it more aesthetic! (Because it’s just so boring at the moment.) But I get distracted very easily and I never actually sat down to do anything about it? #oops
Speaking of review indexes and recent reviews… erm. I haven’t been writing that many reviews lately? I don’t even want to know when my last one was posted/written?? *hides*
It’s not that I don’t want to or even that I haven’t been reading, I do and I have!! Just… not actually sitting down to write the reviews? I KNOW, I KNOW. I’ve given up the idea that I would review each and every book I read BUT I will definitely go back to writing reviews a bit more often, at least for books I’m really excited for! I really do want to write more of them!! SOMEDAY. Pray for me. It’s so great to share my thoughts and fangirl over a book.
Updating my ‘About’ page.
I love About pages! Whenever I discover a new blog I love to see their About page. And my About page was A LOT worse once upon a time *shudders* but it still needs some major updating and work haha. Some things like the type of posts, things I like, are so totally out of date it’s kind of funny?? And I definitely want to make it seem more of “ME” and add graphics and such. Why do I never do it? I don’t know man. (THERE’S A MILLION THINGS I HAVEN’T DONE.)
What blogging things are you behind on?? (Or are you a very very put-together blogger in which case I PRAISE YOU and ask you to teach me your waysssss?!) How often do you post reviews on your blog? Someone push me to get these done I’m procrastinating too much! #halp ALSO bonus: Tell me your most recent favourite read!! I’m falling into a slump and need to either fangirl if I’ve read/loved the book or get BOOK RECS YES.
