A quick note

March 3, 2013     The Bluestocking Bookworm     Random Thoughts

I have four more reviews to write and schedule. I have been reading so much that I haven’t had time to write much in the way of original blog content. I need to remedy that.

Lately I have been having almost an existential crisis with the blog. I want to do a serial, but I don’t want to do that while I rely on WordPress’s hosting. I can’t really afford to move to paid hosting, not to mention that I am not entirely sure what I would call the blog if I did. I want to get more readership, and Written Permission seems to be a bad choice for a URL (too common). So I had thought of switching to something else, but I don’t really know what.

A friend of mine who works for a publisher had mentioned that I need a review policy, and holy moley is she right. I do need a review policy. But I feel like I need to solve these other problems first, before I can commit to being in with the big fish. I want to get books for review, I really really do, and I even have a draft page of a review policy done, but I want to commit to a solid blog, get some more readers, do some more promotion, and see where it all winds up.

So, more reviews later this week sometime. And until then, I will be in a corner, trying to sort all of this out.

    • A review policy is a blogger’s personal policy for reviewing books. i.e. if they will only review books of a certain genre, if they prefer a certain format over another, and if they are even willing to receive books from authors or publishers for reviewing purposes.

Talk bookish to me!
