I decided that since I’m trying to organize my life better in other areas, that should include here too. I’ve gone through and made sure all of my reviews have the same formatting and look “the same”, which was a really good thing to get done and it did take a couple of weeks to do all that. However, it dawned on me about a week or so ago, that while I worked hard at the beginning of my blogging to move all of my reviews from Goodreads, Amazon, my library’s catalog, etc. here to my blog, I did not work as hard to make sure that the reviews were posted on all the other appropriate sites.
So that’s what I’m working on now, in little bits and pieces. I’m still reading and writing reviews (I should have one for Kate Carlisle’s newest book, Once Upon a Spine up tomorrow at some point), but I’m trying to get these little things taken care of so that publishers looking for my reviews can find them on the major websites and not just here on my blog.
Sometimes when one is working on re-organizing, it can feel like things aren’t moving along quickly enough. I mentioned that today to my current financial advisor who’s helping me find all the “leaks” in my spending so I can save more. He assured me that while it may not seem like it, I’m progressing practically perfectly. Small, steady progression that will be easy to maintain. That made me feel better.
My dad asked the other night if I was back sleeping in my own bed yet and I said no, feeling a little down that I haven’t progressed much beyond what I had done last weekend. But he actually responded with “Good! I want you to take your time on all this sorting and cleaning.”
Do you have ways to stop yourself from getting too discouraged that you’re not progressing “fast enough” when working on something? I’d love to hear other people’s suggestions!
