Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it?
I used to be very organized about my reviews. I had a print calendar I used to track all my posts because I liked being able to see it visually. When I first started, I posted three times a week (at least) and usually wrote posts two weeks ahead, so I always had a buffer of posts already scheduled. I used the calendar to keep track of posts made and scheduled, which helped me balance the focus of reviews and vary my non-review posts.
And…then life got busy! At some point I got through that buffer and never caught it up again. And I dropped down to two posts a week, though I’ve been successful maintaining those. I don’t use the calendar anymore, I just know I post Monday and Friday. I still schedule everything–I usually do the Friday post (like this one) during the week some time, and write a review for Monday each weekend.
I never did too much organizing of books in anticipation of reviews. I do track my books read though, in a print notebook. If I don’t have a book in mind to review, I’ll page through that to see if I read anything recently that sparks some thoughts.
Fellow bookbloggers, do you have an organizing system for your reviews, or is it more haphazard? Has it evolved over the life of your blog?
