The Weekly Write-Up: Planners and Schedules

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. So, this is my second week in a row posting this on Monday instead of Sunday. #DoubleFail.

How to Organize Your Book Blog with Trello

Bonus: scroll down to access a template for making your own Trello board! Welcome to the first post of my Bumblings Blog Tips feature! I’m so excited to help you all with your book blogging! I’ve managed several types of blogs, from personal to business to TV. Yet this book blog has been one of the most complex things to keep track of. For example, ARCs go through many stages. First you have to read them. Then you have to write a review, publish it, and usually cross-post it to Amazon and Goodreads and maybe NetGalley. And there’s a due […]
