It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Mini-Challenge: What's your schedule like?


Summer Pick-Your-Thon
Mini-Challenge Day 5
Organize/Schedule

Pick-Your-Thon is hosted at The Book Monsters

Challenge is hosted at The Awesome Is Silent

 What do you do to organize your blog? 

I started off doing really well. I used a notebook with a page a review book. I kept track of things like when they asked, when I received the book, ebook or print and a bunch of others.

I also had a calendar where I wrote the date I planned to post the review.

That didn't work to well so I went all electronic, using blank folders. The main folder would be the title. Inside would be author, cover graphic and other stuff. Each one its own folder.

Now....My print books are double stacked on a couple of shelves. Why yes, I do loose track of what's in the back. My ebooks have all the info in one folder name REV title. I read what sounds good and post a review right away or it takes months and a re-read.

None of these worked by themselves but I might be able to combine and conquer. I need a dedicated spot first. I better spread out the print books, print out a list of the ebooks and keep notes on the same shelf as the print books.

I'll be reading how everyone else does it.

I want to review on my blog. Email the requester when it will go live and then add a review to GoodReads, LibraryThing, Amazon, Book Depository, Powells, etc. . . . I've got a whole list of places.

What is your schedule?

fluctuating

Sunday may be a Lair Report or Sunday Salon

Monday is always Mailbox and What are you reading

Tuesday is usually 1st Paragraph and Teaser

Wednesdays may have reviews

Thursday is Purrs-day/Cat Thursday plus maybe Third Sentence and Thursday 3

Friday? maybe Friday 56

Saturday is Snapshots and Quotes, maybe Food related

Monday's memes get posted. Some weeks that is all that gets posted.

I try to keep it all about books but that may be changing. Am thinking about taking July off and re-vamping.

Wow! Very organized and yet it seems complicated to me. I just use a couple of different google docs myself. I'm pretty bad about emailing live links lately and cross-posting.. which I need to work on. There are only so many hours in the day I suppose. Looks like you have it in good order. :)
