Blog Improvement Project Assignment

In 2009 I decided to focus on trying to really learn the blogging game. I've dabbled in it and started off 2008 real strong before fading. I believe my love for books and loving to learn about more books, chatting with other book lovers will help keep the fire going.

So I signed up for the Blog Improvement Project, Kim posted the first assignment: set goals. Not wanting to go overboard and overwhelm myself I have decided on three goals:
  1. post at least three times a week
  2. be an active member of the booklover community by posting on other bookie blogs
  3. write & post my book review within five days of finishing the book

It is not too late to join in.


  1. Hi! I'm a fellow Blog Improvement Project participant. I like your goals; I think I should adopt number 3 for myself. Happy BIP.

  2. I am also a fellow Blog Improvement Participant and can only recommend being an active participant in the book blogging community. I was away from blogging for a long time, but came back and when I began commenting and being active (which didn't mean I had to forget all about real life) I was amazed how much response I actually got back. It was great. Looking forward to see you around :o)

  3. Those are great goals. I stayed with one to start because I felt that keeping it up throughout the year would be enough for me!

  4. Good set of goals. I'll be following your progress throughout the year.

  5. Some great goals there, particularly number 3. I could do with doing this one myself.

  6. WOW thanks everyone for the encouragement!

  7. Great goals. I have to write my reviews fairly quickly or I forget the details I want to mention. I try to let my review sit for a couple of days and then revise it before I post it. Good luck!

  8. I share two of your goals: #2 and #3.

  9. I just finished Guy Kawasaki's new book
    Will be reviewing it on my show soon

  10. I added a goal about writing reviews within two weeks of reading my book. I wish I could do five days, but with school we'll just have to see what happens :)

    Sorry it took me so long to get over here, and thanks for participating!
