Feature & Follow Friday #27 - Resolutions



Hi welcome to Follow Friday! Let me tell you what is going on today.  For New Years we are having a light hop...you can choose to join in if you would like, but I know that everyone is going to be super busy. I didn't want to stop it, in case people were banking on me having one, but I don't have a feature for today. I will ask a question though? What are your new years book blogging resolutions?

A few people are doing these all over the bloggyverse, so if you want to link them up Melissa from My World...in words and pages has a great link up. http://melissa-melsworld.blogspot.com/2010/12/to-new-year.html if you are interested.

My book blogging resolutions are as follows:
  1. Comment more. I stalk and don't comment. So, I'm really going to try and actually say hi. Even if it is a "hi there." Just to let my stalkees know I'm there ;)
  2. I think I might start limit my review acceptance a little. I'm a bit overwhelmed and with the new kindle I'm not as on top of the paper books anymore
  3. I think I'm going to try to implement a note taking process while I read, this way I can just jot down initial thoughts, this might take some work
  4. More audio books...I'm addicted
  5. Try to find a local reviewer that wants to help out with my TBR...help! I want to face time with someone about books and stuff, maybe a book club, I need to do some research into this
  6. More book signings, these are so fun
  7. More interviews
  8. Use goodreads.com even more...
  9. More guest posts, especially on Book Blogging 101...any takers??

    Ooh, I think I'm going to try to do your #3, as well. Sometimes I forget things for my review so it would probably be a good idea to write things down as I read.

    Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

    Happy New Year! these are some great resolutions and ideas for others :)

    Jana said...

    I am new to your Follow Friday--although I have been following you for awhile. I started doing your #3, but actually on the post that I start as a draft. For my review of Rot & Ruin I did it as a real-time review and just posted comments as I read--the author even commented about that! It sure helps with my thoughts. Here's that link:http://janasbooklist.blogspot.com/2010/10/zombie-week-book-review-rot-ruin-by.html

    I signed the linky, but my resolutions post is scheduled to go up at midnight! So I just thought I'd let everyone know who goes to my blog :-)

    Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

    Hi Parajunkee! I love the resolutions. I was thinking of trying to add more cons or something, but that all depends on the year. :) But they are always fun to do.

    If you are needing someone to guest post, I would love to work with you. :) Just let me know what you would like to do. And I'm there for you. :)

    Hope you have a wonderful and safe New Year!

    (thank you so very much for the link and shout out. I'm really glad you linked up. :) )

    Thank you!

    Carmel @ Rabid Reads said...

    That's an awfully ambitious list! Kudos! I was more reserved on mine. You're thinking about enlisting help? That's cool! Good luck and happy almost 2011.

    Brodie said...

    Happy New Year!! Great list of resolutions, good luck with them all. I particularly hope you can make it to more book signings, beause I always love hearing everyone's experiences. I'm new to your Follow Friday - can't wait to discover even more blogs!

    joder said...

    Hi Parajunkee, I love your resolutions and some of yours are similar to mine. Basically we need to clone ourselves, don't you think?

    Anyhoo, this is my first time participating in a Follow Friday. I'm #33 on your linkity list and would love you to come visit my site. I've tidied up, dusted, and rearranged things for ultimate viewing.

    I look forward to any new visitors and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

    First time Follow Friday participate! Love your question for today, I was working on some of my own and this is such a fun way to see what everyone's are! Happy New Year!!!

    Nina B. said...

    Great question for this week! Really got me thinking :D I hope we could all accomplish our resolutions for 2011. Happy New Year!

    Brush Up On Your Reading

    BLHmistress said...

    Maybe we should all ban together to help us keep to our resolutions this year?

    Hope you have a wonderful New Year!

    Natalie (Mindful Musings) said...

    I cringed when I read your resolution for the commenting instead of just stalking. I read your blog all the time, and we even started our blogs around the same time, yet I hardly ever leave you comments anymore! Lol. That's going on my resolution list too....

    Kristina Barnes♥ said...

    I need to work on the commenting, as well. I'm so lazy, and I much rather prefer lurking/stalking. Typing and clicking is involved in commenting, and that's way too much effort. ;P But yeah, I'm going to work on commenting this year too! :) Have a happy New Year!

    Savannah said...

    Happy New Year!! And great resolutions. Mine is to not buy any books. And of course to read more.

    Rebecca said...

    Happy New Year! I am with you when it comes to the TBR pile in paperback. I just bought myself a Sony e-reader and I never want to touch the paper books now. However, I have three sitting there I have a deadline on, so i guess I need to get to them. I think this is my first hop! Or at least its been awhile. Love the topic ;o)

    Moonlight Gleam said...

    Happy new year PJ!!! *hugs!* Thank you for a great last Follow Friday of the year! I really like the question :). I would love to guest post on blogging 101 if it involves beginner questions since I just began blogging a few weeks ago and I remember all I had to do to get me to where I am now. I'm also still learning.

    Thank you for all your great posts here and on Blogging 101. Your blog is soooo awesome and I really enjoy reading all your posts (yes I'm one of your lovely stalkers loL!!!)

    *hugs*!!! I wish you all the best and good health to you and your family for the new year!!!

    Barb said...

    Thanks for hosting again! I like your list of resolutions. I've posted mine, but I should add the one you made about stalking and now commenting. I'm guilty of that also. Hope you have a great new years!

    unseelieme said...

    I can tell you how I keep track of books...

    I have a spreadsheet (don't laugh - I read 154 books this year & 220 last year).

    The columns are as follows:

    Author (Last name first), Release/Release Date, Format Owned (Hardcover, Paperback, Trade Paperback, eReader), Read (Y/N), Title, Genre (Horror, SciFi, Romance, Young Adult, Mystery, etc.), Category (vampire, were, shifter, fae, magic, demon, angle, etc.), Rating (0-6 stars)

    After each book or series, I write a little synopsis & review, so that I can go back to it to refresh my memory, which is sometimes necessary considering how much I read. My "Urban Fantasy List" is currently 104 pages long....okay, now you can laugh.

    My resolution is to try to get thru my TBR pile which is creeping up on 100 books.

    Kristin said...

    I just love your blog! Have a wonderful New Year!

    The Book Vixen said...

    I want to comment more too. I'm a lurker; I need to make my presence known. LOL

    I take some notes when I'm reading but I need to take more. Sometimes I'm so engrossed in the book that I forget.

    Crystal ♥ said...

    I need to comment more on those I stalk as well instead of just lurking in the shadows.
    Have a wonderful and safe New Years!

    baffledbooks said...

    In order to start off on one of my resolutions, I am actually commenting today! I love your blog and have been doing the stalker thing for a while now. Today is my first Follow Friday post though! Have a great New Years!

    Dana Wright said...

    I love your Follow Fridays! Hope your holidays are great.

    Best,

    I'm with you on needing note-taking program while I'm reading. I can't tell you how many times I've neglected to mark passages that I want to refer to in a review only to have to scramble around to find them later. I don't like to write in my books, so that's out of the question. But the idea of carrying around a notebook in addition to the two or three books I'm already lugging around in my purse doesn't seem practical either. I'm thinking about heavily investing in Post-its.

    I've just posted my resolutions on my blog, and one of them is that I'd like to do some guest blogging. So I guess you could say I'm taker for resolution #9. Also, I love Goodreads!

    ~Sara said...

    Hey, this is my first follow my blog friday! I really like the concept. Happy New Year!

    Melissa (Books and Things) said...

    Great list! I'm just hopping by to say have a happy new year! Hope 2011 is rockin'!

    I didn't get to hit the hop this week because I was so busy at work. But what a great set of resolutions. I'm vowing to make some myself.
