Our New Year's resolution at Crazy for YA is to be better bloggers.
Why so vague?
This year we have some work to do. There are countless things we need to work on, so trying to put all of our goals into one resolution would be impossible. So, we did not even try.
You can expect some changes over the next month or so.
We plan on posting more often, commenting on more blogs, cleaning up the blog, and being more involved in the book blogging community.
To accomplish this, we want to write more discussion posts.
We believe that the heart of the blogosphere, and even the whole bookish world, is discussion. The whole reason we started a blog is to communicate with other people who have the same interests. Unfortunately, we are not seeing that much around here. On the bright side, Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight have come up with the perfect solution, a discussion post challenge!
We have not done many discussion posts yet. We dabbled with them during BookBlogWriMo, and our first, real discussion post by Tessa was published a couple weeks ago. The discussion, about the Goodreads Choice Award winners, was one of our most commented posts. We started some great conversations, which is what we want to do with every post.
The challenge is probably the simplest one that you will find.
All you have to do is write discussion posts and link them up in the monthly recap posts.
Our goal is to have 13-24 discussion posts next year to achieve the level of Creative Conversationalist. For those math people out there, that adds up to about 1-2 discussion posts a month.
My favorite thing about this challenge is the most people who join, the better the challenge will be. So, if you are missing the
crazy lovely voices of fellow bloggers in your life, then this should be your challenge for 2015.
Sign-ups are open until December 31st at 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
Make sure to lick your introduction post to the linky at either Feed Your Fiction Addiction or It Starts at Midnight.
There will be a kick-off post at Feed You Fiction Addiction and It Starts at Midnight on January 1.
The lovely hosts have also promised that there will be monthly giveaways!
