September 18, 2009 BBAW Post: Goals for the Blog


Today’s BBAW question is:

Setting Goals!
 Write in 50 words or less…what do you like best about your blog right now and where would you like your blog to be a year from now?

What I like best about my blog Rhapsody in Books is that many students access my pieces on history. I also love working on legal history pieces with my husband for our sister blog, Legal Legacy. These aspects of the two blogs are unique, in the sense that the blogosphere is overrun with book reviews of fiction but not so much with reviews of books focusing on lesser-known aspects of the history of America. While I also enjoy doing fiction book reviews, I hope to get back to my “roots” and concentrate on non-fiction, historical books.

This means that I will probably not be blogging every day, but I am hoping that quality will compensate for quantity!

    Great goals. I love reading non-fiction, and completely agree that there’re not enough non-fiction reviewers out there. 😀

  2. I love all of your posts. They are either fun, funny or teach me something new. I especially love the pieces you do on lesser known parts of history. (I have books on my wish list to prove it.) I like the way you are going as shown in your goals. I’m feeling the need for quality over quantity, too.

  3. I like whatever you write, even though I might not comment.

    There’s always a place for non-fiction on my shelf. I need the break every now and then and many of the non-fiction books that I have picked up lately have been very enjoyable, educational or both!

  5. bermudaonion says:

    I love your reviews and can’t wait to read your reviews of non-fiction.

  6. rebeccareid says:

    i love nonfiction reviews, so I’m happy to hear that American history is what you like to focus on!

  7. Belle says:

    I really enjoy your posts on nonfiction. They are always so thorough and well-written, and I learn something new every time. Actually, ALL your posts are like that!

  8. Lisa says:

    Great goal. I’ll be looking forward to having a great source for good non-fiction reads!

  9. Staci says:

    I love reading your blog. I always go away with a nugget of information. Keep up the beautiful work. And I wanted to add a big THANK YOU for being such a great support for me when I hit my brick wall in regards of posting reviews…’re a great friend!! 🙂

  10. I’ll take quality over quantity any time … that’s what I tell my husband when we’re looking at jewelry 🙂

    Reading all the goal posts (that is, posts about goals, not goalposts!), it seems this question really inspired people to give some thought to their blogging goals … what a fun week!

  11. Great goals and I love the uniqueness of your blog as well!

    I began to feel the strain of coming up with a constant stream of fresh (bookish) topics after two years of blogging. I tried to adopt weekly memes but refrained from blogging too much about person stuffs. I wish the blog to be focused on books and known for books. I have definitely subscribed to the notion that quality over quantity.

  13. Jenners says:

    I actually prefer blogs that don’t publish every day … easier to keep up with!!! And I love that your blog is visited by students doing research! That is so cool! : )
