GOALS: I has them.
I’d like to begin podcasting. Especially a YA podcast. Now I know there’s already one out there: YA Literature Review… but I would love to start my own. I have a few ideas. To me, this is a good way to attract people who are auditory learners.
I want to start a standalone books feature. Mainly because one of my pet peeves is reading a book that I think would be perfect on it’s own, only to find that it ends with a cliff hanger or there’s another book I need to wait for to finish the story. I was thinking I could use aliteration if I do Standalone Saturday or Standalone Sunday, however this would be a bi-weekly or monthly thing, as there’s already so much that I do on Saturdays and Sundays.
I want to review more GLBTQ themed books. Last year, I tried to step up my PoC reviews, and I’ve done okay at that, I am still progressing. Still reading about PoC. However, I would love to throw some GLBTQ into the mix. I already have My Most Excellent Year waiting on the backburner. Do you have any recommendations? (I’ve already read and reviewed Ash by Malinda Lo)
I am considering moving over to wordpress. I love the commenting structure over there, but I just worry that I would lose feed subscribers, content, comments, all my hard work, etc. I also think the layouts look cleaner. To me, wordpress lends itself to interaction and conversation, whereas blogger, there’s no option to directly reply to someone’s comment without putting — PERSON A — reply to your witty comment, or emailing a reply. PLUS freakin wordpress has it where you can put your twitter name in one of the boxes for commenting. That is awesome. Dear blogger, I would not considering leaving you if you were more like wordpress.
