I’m going to do a Monthly Wrapup here, and how easy it is to do when you don’t post anything! Looking at my post count for 2017, we were at FIVE POSTS. Yikes! I’m going to give myself a goal of one hundred posts for the year in 2018.
I learned a great deal about using memes and other types of blog post prompts this month on my DOA blog. There turn out to be many memes for book blogs. Some of the ones I liked and will try are:
Bookmark Monday (I’ve learned you can put PDF’s easily into a WordPress post, whilst Blogger makes you use the Paid for Feature Google Drive). Let’s see what I can come up with!
First paragraph Tuesday Either from a currently being read book, or perhaps a favorite that starts off really well.
Waiting On Wednesday or something like it. The Breaking the Spine blog started the idea of posting on Wednesdays a few titles you’re looking forward to. She inexplicably vanished from her own blog, with no updates since August of 2016 (see, I’m not so bad). She had links to other people’s blogs who did the Waiting on Wednesday meme, over 1600! Still a good idea to feature things you’ve heard about that week that look good.
Books to Film
Books to Television
Thursday Quotables A quote from your current book or a favorite.
Friday 56 Any sentence from page 56 of any book.
Shelf Candy Saturday Beautiful book covers, or could be the cover of a current or older fiction magazine. (I have some fun old science fiction magazines) I think this also could be a place for “Shelfies” a snapshot of books on your home shelves.
Bad Book Casting Movies or shows where you think the whole thing would have been better with other actors.
Booknotes Links to interesting articles on books or authors
Follow them Friday I haven’t done much with my Merlyn Twitter account, but I could work on my list of authors etc. I follow and recommend some I enjoy.
Authors on Facebook I can recommend from Facebook some authors I enjoy as well.
Let me look again at Online Book Groups, I’m not even sure how many are out there any more, but I shall find some, join them, and let you know what I think.
Literary Cryptograms I’ll move my first line Cryptogram posts to this blog.
Book Rebus My ever popular First Line From A Book Rebuses will come here too.
Crosswords Any Crossword Puzzles I conjure with book themes will be here.
Word Finds Word Finds I create with book themes will be here.
TBR Pile Pictures of my current stack
With all these great ideas, I’m sure to have a much more interesting Book Blog in for 2018.
