Feature & Follow Friday #9

This is a weekly meme hosted by: Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that is aimed to help bloggers grow their audience and make new friends. They feature two bloggers every week and have a question for everyone to answer...

This weeks question: Put together a list of blogger resolutions.

I already did this for the Book Blogger New Years Challenge here and Top Ten Tuesday here.

Here's the list I came up with for those of you who missed those posts:

1. Learn some web design- I want to make my blog prettier!

2. Socialize with other blogs- I have a bad habit of reading blog posts and not commenting.

3. Participate in challenges- I love challenges and they keep me motivated.

4. Social media- I am terrible about updating Twitter and Facebook.

5. Goodreads- I haven't been very active on Goodreads lately and I miss my friends!

6. Schedule posts- I have a bad habit of not writing posts right away and skipping to the next book.

7. Update blogroll- I have added a bunch of new blogs that I follow but haven't updated them to the blogroll.

8. Participate in more blogtours- It's fun.

9. Make my blog a priority- As much as I love reading it's all for nothing if I don't keep blogging which I love!

10. Participate in more memes- I love Feature & Follow Friday... I'd love to find more to add to that.


  1. Thank you for reminding me to update my blog roll. I should probably do that too. Here's my FF

  2. Great goals! I, too, need to be more active on Goodreads. With ya there. And I highly recommend scheduling blog posts, even in advance if you can. That, more than anything else, helps me keep my blogging well in hand. :D Happy Friday!

  3. I'll confess, I'm guilty of most of these things that you named. So good luck on this journey :)

  11. I'd like to participate in a few more blog tours, too. I think I did two last year, both for the same author. Sometimes I see ones I want to sign up for, but I open the tab and then forget about it.

  12. Good.luck this year with meeting your goals! You can! Old follower:)

  13. I wish I knew more webdesign myself. I have tried to check out books from the library and those books are just confusing. I don't normally make my blog posts ahead of time. I might right a review and post it on a different day but other then that I just go with the flow.

  14. OOh nice goals! Wish you the best of luck with them all!

    Thanks for visiting my FF!

  15. Excellent resolutions, my dear. There are a few on your list that didn't make it onto mine, but that I want to do as figure out some web design. :)

    Good luck and Happy Friday!!

    1. btw, I added your button to my blog roll. :)

  16. Sounds like some great goals! I participate in a few memes that I love - Best of the Bunch, Random Reads and Cover Characteristics (which I haven't participated in the past couple weeks, but I still love!). :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my FF!

  17. Those are all great....and ones I need to do too ;) I want to get a little more savvy at the web design stuff. I think it would be fun to change things up once and a while. I get nervous now that if I do I'll ruin what I have LOL. Happy Friday!

  30. Great list! I'm also terrible at updating Twitter and Facebook, so I decided to go with automatic updates through So, anything I post on my blog is automatically posted on Twitter and Facebook also. I know it's not the best solution, but until I have more time to do the updating myself, it's better than not updating at all. Good luck with your goals!
