I think that I’ve definitely lucked out with my job, it’s quite easy and I’m working for a family-run company. The hours are good and I get a lot of time during the day to do my own ‘thing’ which generally means that I can; read, write, listen to music, and work towards my own goals whilst still being paid (yay, go me!).
That being said, I want to discuss the number of posts that I will be publishing, the amount of time that it takes me to read the books and to write the reviews. I’ve noticed that there are many book review blogs that post daily. I like them and I enjoy reading them but unfortunately I just don’t have the time to post as often as other bloggers (or I clearly don’t read as fast).
The fact of the matter is that I do work full time and I also freelance. I read every single day, usually when I’m on the trains commuting or when I’m tucked up in bed. In regards to finishing the books and writing the reviews; I also do additional reading that allows me to get a better understanding of what I’ve just read. I usually read media articles, other reviews and journal articles just in case there is anything I may have missed. Generally once I have finished a book it will take me a week to write the review, maybe more, maybe less.
I would love to post more than once a week, but I think I’m going to stick to once a week for now. I do have a few other ideas for the blog which I won’t give away as of yet, these would give me more material to write about and help me achieve one of my own goals for the year too!!
