Bloggiesta Challenge: Create a Blogging Schedule

Hey everyone! After this idea got such a great response during last month’s Be a Better Blogger challenge, I decided to bring it back as a Bloggiesta challenge! Do you have a blogging schedule? I don’t mean keeping track of when posts are going to be published – that’s an editorial calendar and a totally different thing. The two terms are often used interchangeably but have little in common. Aside from hitting publish, what other work goes into your blog? Social media posting, reviewing, cross-posting, browsing NetGalley, contacting authors, and more. That’s all a part of blogging, as well, and […]

Introducing BookBlogWriMo!

So who else has ever watched your favorite authors participate in NaNoWriMo and thought, “That sounds like fun! If I could write a novel…which I probably can’t.” I mean, I’m trying. But there’s no possibility that I, Brittany, could have a finished draft of a book 45-ish days from today. However, one thing I totally could do is blog more. I post a lot, but I’m trying to post more original content instead of cover reviews and release day launches. I like writing blog posts, and want to do more of it. That’s how I got to #BookBlogWriMo.
