Let's Talk: Blog Goals

Let's Talk is a weekly feature at i swim for oceans.

Question: What are your top book blogging goals?

This is a tricky topic for me. I'm not much of a goal setter. I do a lot, spur of the moment. Which I guess is a good place to start.

1. Organize the blog better.
Not necessarily the appearance, but I bought a whiteboard calendar so that I can plan out my month and such. I also plugged in some book releases and other ideas into iCal. I really need to start paying better attention to what I've mapped out for the month and have more stuff on my blog besides reviews...I need a good feature of my own.

2. Make a great feature.
I want something people are excited to do. Like Let's Talk. I love this feature, it offers a lot of insight into the bloggers that participate and the topics are fun and thoughtful. I've tried a few features, but gave up because I just didn't love them.

3. Transition to Wordpress.
I'm feeling the pressure of this one. Every few weeks when I nervously download a backup of my blog, I consider the move. It does just seem so scary! Blogger is so easy and I'm already here. This is only a sort-of goal I guess. I haven't officially made a decision really.

4. Keep up the good work.
I'm proud of how far I've come in the blogging world in the past few years. I never thought I would have followers or great conversations with authors and other book lovers I've never met in real life. It's been a real fun journey. I started using so many outlets I never thought I would. I've read some amazing books and have gotten to gush about them and share my love with the world. THE WHOLE WORLD! It's crazy and awesome. :)

Do you all have any big blogging goals? 


  1. Good call, Britt!

    You know, finding the right feature is always a task, but trust'll find it! I'm so glad to hear you enjoy this one. You really have done a lot with your blog to be proud of! I've been following it since the beginning of mine, and I've always looked up to you :)

  2. I love your goals and they seem quite doable! My only real goal is just to post every day. I've been going through a reading slump so I haven't been getting many reviews up and I hate that!

  3. I'm not much of a goal setter either, Britt. I'm kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants person. I never stick to any goals I make, so I rarely make them. AND I am always in awe of those who can set them and stick with them.

    Features: those are tricky, I suppose. Hang in there and you'll figure out one you love!

  4. This post made me think as I don't think we have any goals for our blog, just to share our reviews! But it has been fun to make new friends and discover new books via other blogs and I always think there is room for improvement ;)
