Feature and Follow Friday (11)

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted over at Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. This week's question:


Q: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?


I'm going to try and be more honest in my blog posts. I don't think that I should be writing fluff just because everyone else is writing fluff, but instead that I need to work and find my own blogging voice this year. I feel that many book blogs that I follow have their own personalities, and I'm going to work hard this year to try and find mine! 
I'm also going to try and include more from my personal life. I want this blog to be more personal, and for my readers to get to know me more as a person rather than just a little blogging machine that churns out opinions on books every once and a while. I have other interests too, I swear!

  1. That's a great resolution! I have a hard time writing reviews sometimes because of that too, I'll definitely be working on that this year as well.

  2. Hopping through. It's hard to find your voice. I don't know if I've found a definitive one or if I ever will. I just tend to spout off.

  6. Sharing more about yourself is a great idea. I was inspired by Emily from Beauty Broadcast to leave little tidbits on some blog posts talking about things that have happened to me. Sometimes I get lots of people commenting on things that I said about myself. Not always, but sometimes. And I think it helps show the kind of person I am.

    Good luck with your resolutions :)
