As part of the Australian YA Bloggers & Readers Secret Santa Blog Hop, we want to know whether you’ve been a good or naughty blogger this year.
This blog hop is for the participants of the Aussie YA Bloggers Secret Santa list to help you find out more about your fellow santas and santees and hopefully find out who your santa is! If you’re not part of the blog hop, feel free to answer the discussion questions below, leaving out the clues for the santa. Just let us know that you’re not part of the Santa list.
1. How are you going with your Goodreads challenge?
I’ve read 120 books this year, didn’t think I’ll be able to do it but I’m also 11 books ahead! WOOHOO!
2. How many times did you post per week on average? Do you think you’ll post more/less in the future?
I post about 4-5 times a week on average and looking back at the year, it looks like I mostly kept to my schedule. Of course there were a few times when I couldn’t keep up with posts, reviews or my Indulgence Insider, but overall I think I did pretty well and will continue to keep to that next year.
3. What is your Netgalley ratio?
It’s abysmal. I definitely try and focus on reading my physical review copies and sometimes Netgalley books get neglected because of that. But at 37.7% what can you expect right 😛
4. Have you been commenting on other blogs?
Throughout the year I was pretty good with commenting on other blogs, although I found out that was contributing to the stress of blogging for me, as I pressured myself to do it ASAP. Lately, I’m probably not as on top of commenting as I want to be, but I love visiting your blogs so I make the rounds a few times a week.
5. Did you read mostly review books or non-review books this year?
I mostly stuck to review books this year, otherwise the pile wouldn’t be manageable lol. Gotta keep those publishers happy, I’m so grateful for being able to review for them.
6. What are your blogging goals for 2015?
I’d love to do something about my clunky site design, it bugs me with how slow it gets sometimes because all the coding and plugins have been hand picked by me and I’m not very good at that stuff. Other than that, continue having fun blogging here and in the blogging community is a big one, there were definitely up and downs in 2014 where I let the pressure get to me.
7. What is your favourite blogging moment/achievement of 2014?
There are so many, it’s been a great year for blogging! Definitely being invited to speak on a panel at the #LoveYA Festival for Brisbane Libraries, which was a proud, scary and exciting moment for me. But there were also some fantastic moments where I met my fellow Aussie Bloggers, in particular Chiara and Bec, being able to go to PTA Live and Love YA Festival and last but not least, starting the Australian YA Bloggers Group with Kelly and bringing our lovely Aussie YA Blogger community together.
Based on your answers above, do you think you’ve been a good or naughty blogger this year?
GOOD BLOGGER – I think I’ve done pretty well this year.
Leave 3 clues to help your santee guess who you are!
Well, this is embarrassing. I was so busy organising for the Blog Hop and getting everyone excited that I forgot to sign up myself. So I’m not actually a Santa this year, but it’s all worked out ‘behind the scenes’. But this is where you’ll need to leave 3 clues about your santee to help them guess whot hey are!
Examples of clues you can leave:
- Your santee’s latest blog post
- Describe your santee’s theme
- A recent comment you left your santee
