I am no blogging expert. I am learning as I’m going. Some things I fuck up, somethings I pick up. Most things I just wing it. Either way here 1 thing I’ve learnt as a new book blogger part 6;


Staying Organized

I knew from the get-go that I needed to be very organized in order to keep track of everything. First thing I did when I started this blog was to get a notebook. In the back, I list all the book requests I have gotten.

  1. NAME OF BOOK by Author 01JAN18

If it has a date next to it, means I have read it and that is the date the review post will go live. I always color it in green once I have written the post. When it is live I then post my review to Goodreads, Amazon, Twitter, and Instagram. Then the number for the book in this case 1. I then highly it in blue to show that it all done and dusted. This is just one thing I keep track of, other things I keep track of are the following;

People I have said No to and the reason why I did.

Publishing houses I have a working relationship with have their own pages.

Audiobooks I keep separate because these are not requests.

Also, books that I have requested or I own, I keep a separate list because again these are not requests sent to me.

I know that is a lot. But I like keeping track of things, keeping things structured. It gives me a little piece of mind. Plus something to panic at with all the requests. It is completely up to you and your own blog style whether you keep organized or not. This is your time and your enjoyment.
