It is 2017 (in my country). To be honest I am not that excited nor that happy. The past couple of years have been a bit hard for me,I know that that won’t change over night, but I am trying to stay positive and optimistic.
So, I decided to put a little list and if not change my whole life, at least I would try to change my blogging life (somewhere to start from).
Well, I started this blog in May 2016 because I have been trying to find a way to share my thoughts and talk about different books that I read. It has been an amazing experience. Since I started this blog (and a bookish Facebook page in February), I have learnt so much. I am very grateful for that and I wish that I will learn more in 2017.
During the process of learning about blogging, I have not written many posts. I was gathering information and … well learning. Anyways, I will start applying what I have learnt starting from NOW. Enough speaking, let me tell you what are my plans for this blog for 2017.
- Writing more book reviews: if you check out my posts, you will notice that almost all of my reviews (except one) are of books that I loved (or liked) but not really about books that I did not enjoy reading that much. The reason is that those books that I loved or liked so much make me want to talk about them with everyone, so I write about them. But for this new year, I will write a review of every book I read even if I do not have a lot to say about it. I will at least share with you guys the synopsis, and what other people think about it. I think those posts will be super cool and resemble blurbs since you won’t have to read only about my thoughts.
- Writing constantly: as I have already said, I have been learning about blogging. However, now that I know the basics, I will do my best to post every weekend. I am also learning SEO (I am super excited to write my first SEO post); as a result, my posts will be more organised and have that professional air. Not all of them, though. I like to share random stories and thoughts that come across my mind from time to another. But, you will be definitely seeing more bookish news, new published books, best sellers of a certain month… I am also planning to write reviews of movies adaptations YEEEY 🙂 I will also do bookish beauty tutorials or fashion hacks (nail polish with a book theme, hair style, cloths looks… but only if I can find how to put those together with what I already own).
- Product reviews and affiliate links: this also a new thing that I have learnt about a few weeks ago. I have been doing my research and I am ready to try this out. I will start with a few bookish products that I have purchased myself, and I will soon start contacting companies. Let me know if you have already received products to review.
You can reach me on email@example.com.
You can also find me on my Fcebook page Algerian Book Readers.
I also post on another blog that is related to my page, its content is kind of NATIONAL. So, if anyone wants to reach out to Algerians; tell them know that we can do it for them. We are the first to build an Algerian blog for Algerians who are interested in English literature.
I wish you a happy new year, 365 full of joy and new exciting experiences.
Take care and read books.
