Today, we're sharing five resolutions we have for 2016. We're cutting it down, so we can commit to our resolutions this year!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies over at the Broke and the Bookish!
5. Come up with more diverse blog posts
I generally just review and do memes. Nothing wrong with that, but I really want more interactive posts this year. I like the comments and questions that come with a good interactive post.
I'm still trying to figure out the best way to WRITE an interactive post - I had a spine poetry idea that bombed royally - so hope you guys will bear with me as I experiment!
(I have so many ideas! Just need to apply them!)
4. Better utilize my other platforms, but connect it to the blog
I think I'm pretty good with Twitter, and relatively okay with Facebook. I'd like to tie the blog's Tumblr and Pinterest to the blog more, without seeming like I'm obnoxious advertising blog posts, if that makes sense?
(Something I ALSO learned recently, when a couple of people unfollowed after too much blog spamming.)
3. Commenting more
I say this every year, and the truth is: I still need to work hard at it. I LOVE every comment I get; but I'm not always the best at reciprocating. It's not because I don't care; I'm honestly just so busy at work, I feel like by the time I respond, it's a week or two after the fact.
Please know that I love everyone who comments, and I do read your blogs though!
2. Bring more interests onto the blog
I've actually been contemplating this for awhile; I really want to share more of my other interests - e.g. TV shows and movies - on the blog.
This really ties back to #5, but would love to figure out how to effectively do this!
1. Be a better blog friend
I have blogger + author + publicist friends whom I love dearly, but I feel like I'm not as communicative as I could be - largely because of work.
(I feel silly even saying that, because everyone else has work/school too!)
I want to be more engaged, and to be there when they need a friend to talk to, or even just someone to chat with. I need to figure out how to better do that. <3
