Getting Organized

The one thing I noticed in the last few months about book blogging, is it is damn hard to keep organized. I have so much I need to spend time on. Challenges need updating, my yearly review master post needs updating and my sidebars need cleaned up.

The question is, WHEN AM I GOING TO HAVE TIME!

In the last few months my father has had some health issues that have really nasty and have put some restrictions on my time for fun stuff...like leaving my house and reading.

I keep vowing I'll get the blog organized and that I'll start updating posts as soon as I make them, but so far, that isn't happening.

So fellow book bloggers, do you have any tips for me on keeping the blog organized?

I really wish I did, but it turns out I'm just as in need of advice as your are! And I just keep doing stuff to overwhelm myself even more. LOL! Well, at least we're in the same boat. =O)

Let me know if you find out anything useful.

Sorry to hear your dad is having health issues!!! I'll send some good thoughts for you and your family!


...As for getting organized...I think most of us struggle with that!!! But I have noticed that a lot of the bigger bloggers not only have a schedule, but schedule their posts ahead of time--I always did mine on the fly--It's hard to schedule things when you already feel behind!--But now, I'm trying to take some time, *attempting* to build up a stockpile of reviews that I can schedule ahead of time...but it's hard not to just post them right away! *sigh* #inthesameboat

I maintain a Google calendar listing when I plan to post. Both reviews as they are ready and planned things like book tour stops and memes. That way I can check out what needs to be done next.
