2021 Blog Resolutions

I mean….truth. Sure, reading is fun but so are photos/memes/gifs.

I’ve been a bit of a scatter brain lately, I meant to address this stuff in my Bookish Resolutions post but I did…….not.

Mr. C&M poked fun at me in 2020 for backing off of blogging. As he pointed out, I was being lazy about it the instant people were looking for new content to keep them entertained while trapped at home. It was a fair point BUT work became hell at that point and mental health became a prerogative. (Not to mention he jumped in the game streaming ocean both feet first, so one of us was doing the world a content favor anyway.)

Despite my lack of activity, the blog continued to grow in 2020. I’m now up to 886 followers and I just want to say THANKS for joining me AND for hanging in there while I wasn’t posting much.

All that being said, with my new fancy laptop, my motivation has seemed to return. The hope is to be posting twice weekly again, at bare minimum once a week.

I’ve also decided to return to writing book reviews. *insert cheering masses here* I’m going to be more relaxed about it than I used to be however. It became a job at one point and then I stopped enjoying it. So, I’m only going to really review anything that makes me feel strongly one way or the other. Mediocre books produce lame reviews when it comes to me, so I’ll either skip them altogether or do mini-reviews at the end of the month.

I would also like to revive Mr. C&M’s craft beer review section, although since we’re still not going places and he’s not drinking that much, that one might be a little while.

Lastly, I spruced up the front page of the blog. Probably nothing too noticeable though, changed some fonts and colors. Maybe this will be there year that I actually figure out how to do more things with WordPress. I only recently figured out how to do photo galleries if that tells you just how little I’ve tried anything past basic posts.

SO THERE.

Those are my big plans. Hopefully 2021 doesn’t take a big fat dump all over them.
