Armchair BEA - Blogger Development and Fiction Genre

Design credit: Nina of Nina Reads.


I would have to say over the years I have developed quite a lot as a blogger. I've branched out with social media (facebook, twitter and pinterest). Some of the social media I use more often than others, but I'm still learning and figuring out what I have time for. Scheduling is another area that I am still struggling with (mostly due to lifestyle changes that conflict with blogging and reading/writing slumps). 

I've learned to reach out more and comment on other bloggers posts as a way to get to know the community, spread my name and have some great in depth conversations with fellow readers. 

This year I am also learning to stop doing what I "think" I should be doing blog wise and start doing what I want to do and what fits in with my everyday life. No more over scheduling, no more panic attacks that I forgot something, and no more trying to keep up with the Jones'.

There are some things that I would love to learn more about: SEO, possibly switching from Blogger to Wordpress (this is all dependent upon how much I blog this coming year) and writing more thoughtful reviews. 


I am a big lover of many types of fiction novel. I have an eclectic taste in reading and have been branching out more and more this year. I do however have a sweet spot for zombies, werewolves and vampires. I love a good romance and I'm keen on reading books with ore daring topics as well. I'm always up for a good challenge.


  1. I've struggled with some of the same issues. Scheduling my posts makes running my blog easier, but it's not always the most feasible approach. Keep working at it and you'll find the right balance! Tattooed Books

  2. I love what you said about development. I run into the same problem with scheduling, etc. Life happens and I can't always be 100% on everything. I know Blogger has a scheduling option, but I need to figure out how to switch it to my time zone, lol. Maybe I'll try using that at some point.

  3. I agree with what you said about blog development. Doing what you do and fitting it in with real life makes for a balanced blog.
