This Week’s Topic: An Important Change
For those of you who don’t know, I post promotional blogs when they come across me. I’m always looking to promote for this blog segment. I used to have something posted every day. When there are blog tours that offer reviews, I jump on the review.
The problem is, I fall behind a lot. I’m a mood reader and a procrastinator. I always think I have more time than I do. I underestimate how long it’s going to take me to read a book. I mean I get them read and reviewed eventually. I still feel like I’m letting the author and promo company I’m working with down.
That being said, I’ve decided to not sign up to review for the tour. I’ll still read and review the book. Especially if it’s a genre I’m interested in reading.
I’m also going to be more conscientious about my book buying. I know most people would term this a book-buying ban. I’m not going to. If I say that, I will be tempted to buy books the entire time I’m on it. The way I do it, I will still buy books. I’ll just be mindful of the purchases instead of being impulsive about it.
I’m also going to stop accepting review requests and requesting books on Netgalley. Not permanently. Just for a little bit. I’m hoping that doing these three things, I’ll catch up on my reading. I also hope that I won’t feel like reading is a chore.
I’m really hoping these changes will work well for me. If anybody wants updates on this progress, please let me know.
