Unfortunately, I'm somewhere between chaotic and bad. Some medical problems have cropped up and are taking most of my time.
So, I am going to change a few things.
|Sometimes life spins out of control!|
The first thing I'm going to stop doing is including a variety of affiliate links in my reviews. This process alone takes longer than writing the review itself.
Besides, nobody ever uses them to buy anything. I used to be able to count on atleast something around xmas. This year I got nadda.
I'll still do Amazon, and I'm not dropping Adsense. Plus I'm going to leave the various banners in the footer; just in case somebody wants an easy way to access their favorite book retailer.
A bat can always hope!
Next thing I'm going to do is structure my reviews a bit differently. The word vomit method is great but I'm missing too many points of interest, often repeating myself or leaving out important information. I'm hoping that I'll end up with a much better review and with some structure, I'll stop leaving out vital info. And don't worry, I'll reserve a section where I can rave or rant accordingly :>)
The third thing I did was start a new blog. No, I'm not really insane. Sometimes I just need a new project to keep those creative juices flowing and for now, this is it.
So, when you get a chance, visit Witty Wacky and Wise ~ A (Mostly) Speculative Fiction Book and Author Quote Gallery. From now on, all of my quote work is going there. It is pretty cool actually. I'm using Blogger's dynamic views flipcards. Hover over any thumbnail image and it will "flip" showing you the title of the quote. Once I populate it with a ton of quotes, it will look really neat. Well, I think so anyway :>)
Besides, it is time to stop using them for fillers when I just can't find the time to write a review or article.
The long and short of the matter is, I'm streamlining things so that maybe I can go back to cranking out reviews like I used to. By taking out the things I DON'T look forward to doing, and by cutting down the time it takes to create a review, I'll procrastinate less and write more. As tired as I am right now, easier is definitely better!
So anyway, that is what's up. I'll see you all soon!
