As announced in my new year’s resolution, I want to read one book each month that is conform to a theme. What theme? Well, I’ll choose a new theme each season. Currently, it’s winter season. And I’ve decided to go for…
The first day of 2018 was spent dealing with the aftermath of 2017. Resting, seeing family, eating leftovers. That kind of stuff. But now it’s the second day already! That means: game on! Time for some new year’s resolutions. They include some changes, and so I thought it was time to change the layout of the blog as well. Hope you like it! Here are my five new year’s resolutions for 2018.
Like I mentioned in my last post, July will have a few changes for me.
- I won’t be reading at the same pace as usual;
- I won’t be blogging.
What does this mean? Will I stop blogging entirely? NO! I just won’t have time in the coming month to fill you up on all the books I’ve read. However, I promise you that I will create posts for all the info you missed out on because of me taking a small break. Expect August to be full with book reviews and more interesting stuff!
As I don’t know the speed at which I will read, it’s very hard for me to set a goal. Above are a few of the books I picked. I hope I get to read them all. If I read more, you’ll find out soon enough!
See you in August, y’all!
I’ve started working on this blog with a purpose: improve my own writing as well as share my thoughts on books I’ve read and films I’ve seen. So far, I published 27 blog posts on 4 months and some days. Even though that’s quite a high number, it’s not good enough for me.
I. Must. Do. Better.
Why? Because in the last two months, I’ve only written eight posts. That’s just not good enough. I’m setting my monthly goal to six blogposts. Let’s see if I get there.
Also, I’m restyling my blog. As you can see, there is a new layout. Indeed, I changed it. Why? So that it is clear to you that there are changes. Duh. In the future, I will also change the layout when other changes are due. This to ensure you quickly notice some structural changes.
Secondly, I’m going to restyle my writing. I followed a course on story telling near the end of April. It was a great course and it let me know that there’s a lot more to writing than just filling blog posts with words. So you can expect my blog posts to contain more story and less bla-bla.
Last but not least, a friend recently told me that I spoiled too much in my reviews. He was interested to see whether the book was any good. But before he got to that part of my review, he already knew a lot about the content of the novel. And come to think of it, he’s right.
I. Spoil. Like. Hell.
It’s true, damnit. You can expect my reviews to have a different structure in the future. I will do my best to address oncoming spoilers. I’ll split my review posts into my two cents and my favourite characters. A brief recap of the storyline will probably not be part of my future reviews, unless you want it!
I guess that’s it. For now, those are the changes that will occur on Reading with @wel_ko. I will keep on sharing my thoughts from my reading corner. Other suggestions or tips to improve are welcome.
Please do not be afraid of the comments section. Last time I checked it didn’t bite. Any input is deeply appreciated.
