Blogging Babble: Blogger/Follower Expectations

BloggingBabble.jpg

 Well I’ve been blogging for over a year now and I have yet to post discussion posts regularly… Actually I think I’ve posted a total of 2 since I started blogging.  It’s just sad really.  BUT I have been working on lots of ideas, so hopefully this is going to change moving forward.

Today, I wanted to talk with my fellow bloggers about blogger/follower expectations…

Bookish Babble: Setting Goals for 2017

BBGoals.jpg

Do you set goals for yourself at the start of each year?

I find that setting goals at the beginning of every year helps to keep me motivated throughout the year.  I am so big into making goals, that I not only make yearly (“long term goals”), but also monthly (“short term”) goals.  That’s right, I love goals!

In this post I am going to give some helpful hints for setting your bookish goals for 2017, and also share my own goals for 2017.

Bookish Babble: Bookworm Stereotypes

Hello bookworms!

Today I am excited to share with you the first of a new feature on my blog, Bookish Babble!  (Oh how I love a good alliteration)  I have been wanting to do discussion posts for a while now, however I had many excuses reasons for not attempting a discussion post until this point in my blogging journey.  Most of these reasons centered around the fact that I am a big fat chicken and was too scared to put myself out there, but I also had some legit reasons.  My biggest reason being that I wanted to build up Cover2CoverMom’s following before attempting discussion posts.   After all, what is the point of a discussion post if no one reads it?  Without followers, it kind of defeats the whole discussion post concept when it is a one sided discussion.  Now I am not saying that I am setting the world on fire in the followers department, but I now feel confident that at least one person is bound to read this post, thus making it all worthwhile.

Kids’ Corner: How to Get Your Kids to Read More

HowToGetYourKidsToReadMore.jpg

Let’s be honest here, not every kid loves to read.  I know, I know, incomprehensible.  For some parents, it is like pulling teeth to get their child to actually pick up a book.  Been there, done that.  That’s right, I am a parent to a reluctant reader.  Now, if you do not have children yet, I’m sure you are thinking to yourself “that will never happen to me, my children are going to love reading just like me.”  To which I would say, “good luck with that.”  This post isn’t just about reluctant readers though, these can also be used to find ways to get your kids to read more in general.

Let’s talk about some ways you can get your kids to read more…
