Changing it Up! Blog Schedule and New Focus!

HEY EVERYONE!

So, I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do on my blog. I've been wanting to do more than just book reviews and book related stuff on it for a while, and I've finally decided that I am now going to start bringing more things than just books onto my blog. I'm hoping to start doing posts on tea, nail polish, my puppies, and discussions soon! :D

I haven't quite decided on everything just yet, but starting next week, I'm going to be following this loose schedule:

SUNDAY: Random Day
  • This is just going to be my day to post random stuff. They might be posts on my dogs and puppies, random rambles I've been thinking about, jokes, or maybe even a mashup :P.
MONDAY: Mani Monday / Cover Catchup
  • I've always loved painting my nails, and recently, I've gotten super into Julep nail polish, so I'm going to start posting a manicure of mine every Monday. :) I'll also post any covers that I've found recently that I absolutely love. They might be new, or they might not be...but I'm going to gush about them all the same. ;)
TUESDAY: Tea Tuesdays! / Review
  • Yet another thing I've gotten obsessed with lately is Davids Tea, so I'll be posting about tea every Tuesday. ;) And this will be one of the days I regularly post a review, too. :)
WEDNESDAY: Discussion Day / Waiting on Wednesday
  • These ones are pretty self-explanatory. :) I'll be positing discussion on Wednesdays, and if I have any books I'm super excited for (which I'm sure I will), I'll be doing WoW, too. :)
THURSDAY: What I'm Listening To... / Review
  • I was originally thinking of having my fangirl-ish talk day on Thurdays (but moved it to Friday), so I think on Thursdays I'm going to focus mostly on music. I'll share a list of a few songs that I've been obsessed with all week, and we can all share music recommendations. ;) And this is yet another day where I may post reviews. :)
FRIDAY: Fangirl Friday / Review
  • Fangirl Friday is something that I see on tumblr a lot, and I love it! I'm always up for fangirling about stuff, so I'm going to start doing it on the blog, too. :) It'll be a day I just ramble and gush over the things I love: movies, music, TV...it could even be a book (shocker, right?! :P), and I'll also try and post reviews on Fridays, too. :)
SATURDAY: ???
  • I'm really not sure what I'll post on Saturdays yet. :P It might be a rest day from the blog, or it could be another random day. haha We'll see what I come up with. I have been thinking about doing some kind of interview feature on my blog though, so maybe I'll get that ready, and Saturday will be its day. ;)
Well...this schedule is looking pretty packed, but I'm going to try to stick with it! On the days where I have two options, I may just do one each week...we'll see how it works out. ;) And obviously, I may deviate from this, but right now...I'm going to try to follow this schedule! Hopefully, I can keep up! ;D

What do you think?
Are you excited to see some of these new things popping up onto my blog?
Any other nail polish, or tea lovers out there??
Also, do you have any suggestions? I'm open to those, too. :)

All the best!

  1. I have been thinking about this recently too. I mean I love talking about books, but sometimes I want to do something else on my blog too. I am doing my first 'other' post this saturday, I'll be posting a recipe of a cinnamon bread I made recently. And I really hope people like that. I am also a bit hesistant about posting other content, because you know it still is a book blog, but I think freshing it up with some other content can be nice.

    I am looking forward to seeing these new posts on your blog :). I am especially curious about the tea posts, I love tea! I usually drink earl grey tea. I'll do my best to remember to check back theusday to check out your tea post!

    1. That's exactly it, Lola! :) It's nice to share other stuff, too. :) Awesome, I'll definitely have to check out your post on Saturday then! :D I completely agree. It keeps the blog from getting monotonous and keeps you interested, too. :)

      Thank you! :) I'll have to tweet you to remind you. ;) haha

  2. I am really excited for all your new posts! I also can't believe you are posting like every day of the week... we'll see :P

    1. I'm excited too, Zo! :D haha I'm going to try! We'll see how well it goes. I'm thinking that since some of the posts are smaller ones, or can be smaller ones, I should be able to do it. I can also pick to do one out of two if I'm bored with the other one. :P Fingers crossed I can keep up with it! haha

  3. I'm excited to see what you come up with your new focus. I've started a couple (sometimes short-lived) other blogs for when I want to talk about something other than books!

    1. Thanks, Megan! :D I'm excited, too. :D haha I figured it would motivate me more to keep up with it if I put it on here. :P haha

  4. So awesome!!!! So glad I'm the only one doing this. Except I don't have a schedule, I just do it at the weirdest randomest times, lol. As for the whole nail polish thing, I've started participating in a Tuesday meme, really it was a Tuesday post Nikki at Nikki's Nail Files does every Tuesday and so far I'm the first to join her. Anyways it's called To(e)tally Tuesdays, where we show off our pedicures. It's actually kind of fun. Once you post up your first post and show off your feet it's less scary to think about showing off your feet to the whole world. ;)

    1. Thanks, Jess! :D You're definitely not the only one! :D I've been pretty bad at posting regularly lately so I figured I might need a schedule to stay focused. :P haha I was just about to say that I don't really like to show off my feet...maybe I'll have to try it sometime. Once I worked up the courage to show off my toes. :P

  5. Ohhhhh!!! I just noticed the new layout and design!! When did this happen? I am so behind on visiting others blogs that I totally missed the transformation. I really really love it.

    1. I did it a few months back. :) I got a lovely designer to do it for me, and I'm still super in love with it! :D Thanks, Jess!!!

  6. Good for you, changing up the format of the blog! I've started adding in some music posts and hope to add in other random posts at some point, too. I mean, I LOVE books, but there are other loves, too, you know?

    I miss painting my nails ... I just don't have the time for them to dry properly anymore! It's like my little boy knows when I'm putting on that first coat and then he's totally up from his nap. I've started using the nail stickers (or whatever they're called) by Sally Hansen ... I'm terrible at putting them on so far, but it's a nice way to feel like I've painted my nails.

    Looking forward to your new posts!

    1. Thanks, Kristilyn! :) Exactly! :D I can't wait to see more of the random posts on your blog, too. :)

      Painting your nails can definitely be time consuming, but I like nail stickers, too. :) They're very handy! You'll get better at putting them on though. :) It just takes practice!

      Thanks, and I'm looking forward to yours! :)

  7. I approve!! I do love seeing your non-book related pics of nail polish, tea, and puppies on Instagram so I think it's great that you'll be introducing that stuff more into your blog. I love book related stuff as well, but really, if there is a topic that you are enthusiastic about then it is likely that other people will also be interested in said topic and will want to hear about it. I know I'm keen to hear your thoughts on other stuff! It's definitely a packed schedule you have planned, so I'm impressed you've done a good job of sticking with it so far. Perhaps sharing my love for non-book related things is exactly what I need to breath new life into my blog... something to think about anyway!

    1. Yay! :D I'm glad you approve, Eilidh! :D That's what I thought! Hopefully somebody else thinks it's awesome, too, right? :) Ya...I have a feeling I won't be doing it all the time, and I'll probably end up doing just one of the things daily rather than both, but I wanted to have more options to choose from. :D I know...I'm surprised with myself! I'm keeping on task pretty well! It definitely is! And if you do it, I will definitely check out your new posts!! :D
