Getting Back To Blogging

It's been a busy few months for me, first working a job I hated which left me exhausted at the end of each day and without much free time, then throwing four weeks of work experience while still working full time into the mix. I have actually read a lot more books than I've reviewed so far this year, and I was determined to get some of them posted so my reading challenge on Goodreads doesn't show up as having quite such a bad result as it currently does! I was all set to do a 'thirty reviews in thirty days' challenge through December to get caught up. Then in the first week of the month, I went to a job interview, was offered the post the same day, and moved to London from Scotland a week later! So I didn't have quite as much time for reviewing as I thought I would this month!

I'll be getting as many mini reviews onto Goodreads as I can before the end of the year, but I'm going to be spacing them out a little bit more on the blog - probably one a day. Unlike my normal full length reviews, these will all be 'mini reviews', just a few sentences about my thoughts on the story, with a couple of exceptions for my favourite books of the year. Once I'm all caught up on posting my 2015 reviews though, I'll get back to normal length reviews for 2016.

I've got a 9-5, 5 days a week, ordinary job now - for the first time ever! This means life will be a lot more organised this year, so I really want to get back in to blogging regularly. My aim with the blog for 2016 is to post at least two reviews a week, plus joining in with a couple of memes/blog hops. Hopefully this year I can stick to that!

What are your blogging goals for the year? Do you have some kind of timetable in mind, or are you more free flowing with what you post and when?
