I have been watching J. Kaye arranging her blog differently for the upcoming year and it made me realize that I have not really made anything set in stone here on my blog. I have come up with a few ideas and wanted your opinion. Some of these things will be gradually introduced and other will wait until the new year begins. Here are the few things I am working on:
1. Sundays I am going to continue reviews, but I am also going to introduce a new meme. Well, it will be new on my blog, but I got the inspiration from other blogs as how to do it. On Sundays, I will feature different book bloggers. Kind of like my author Q&A’s, but with book bloggers instead.
2. I am thinking about after my birthday giveaway is over, I will be doing random contests. When I have a book to giveaway I will just post it and list it also on my contest page. This way it gives a fair chance to my loyal followers who read everyday. This will also free up my bookshelves faster so I can add newer books to my piles. So be on the look out for lots of giveways on my blog.
3. Reading challenges will be a new adventure for me this coming year. I plan on joing more than one at a time, and hosting some. I was really hoping that my Lynsay Sands challenge would have brought some people to join in reading, but no one signed up. My husband helped me realize that maybe it was because people don’t read as fast as I do since I can read on average 2 books a day. So I am going to be redoing that one and posting it with a longer timeline and with a prize as well. Look for the sign ups on it later this month.
4. I am also thinking of a sort of WTF? day. Strange photos I come across on the internet to give us all a good laugh.
I don’t want you all to think that there won’t be any reviews though. Reviews will still be posted everyday. These things will just be in addition to what I already have.
So does anyone have any other ideas?? What do you think about these?? Let me know!

I think you have really great ideas, Amy. I really like your blog now so anything you do I will more than likely LOVE it.
It’s a nice idea to have a ongoing contests page especially with how much you read. If you like something, pass it on. ! I did that one time with Shutter Island and readers responded.
Challenges are hard, especially at this time of year since there are so many holiday themed ones going on. A longer timeline I think is really important.
And I like your idea of WTF? day. I don’t get a chance to browse the interent too much so it would be fun to see what you find!
a loyal follower,
I love your thoughts and ideas! I need to get back into my weekly book giveaways, haven’t done one in a while now!
I do stop by daily, I don’t always post but I will do better from now on! I love stopping by here and reading your reviews!!

It all sounds great to me!
I love the idea of featuring another blog once a week. I plan to do this later, once I have better established my own blog.
Good luck! : D
It’s always good to have fresh ideas. Sounds great!
I am also spotlighting other bloggers, but I was thinking of doing mine on Monday’s. Meme’s help give you something to blog when you don’t have a review..love that..lol. I think you have good ideas for your blog. 🙂

Lol, WTF day? Those sound like potentially successful ideas though, go for it! 🙂
I agree. Love WTF?
