Be sure to check out all my other Blogging On a Time Crunch Posts here: Day 1: Intro Day 2: Time Management (printables) Day 3: Essential Tools Day 4:  Ask a Blogger (spreadsheet secrets) Day 5: The One with all the Resources ———————————- Today I have asked other bloggers to share their tips, secrets, (YES! spreadsheets!) for how they stay organized blogging and how they get everything done that they want to! One of the biggest issues bloggers seem to run into is keeping track of their books.

{Discussion} #BloggingOnATimeCrunch : Essential Blogging Tools

Be sure to check out all my other Blogging On a Time Crunch Posts here: Day 1: Intro Day 2: Time Management (printables) Day 3: Essential Tools Day 4:  Ask a Blogger (spreadsheet secrets) Day 5: The One with all the Resources ———————————- Today I am going to share with you the tools that I could not blog without. Time management and scheduling are great. In fact they are the foundation of my daily life, and they are what I owe a lot of my success to. BUT I still wouldn’t be able to get nearly as much done with my blog, if I didn’t have these tools. And if you want AH-MAZING posts on some of these tools, and way more, you need to check out Brittany @ Book Bumblings blog. She is kind of a genius!

If you want more information about the event, check out my introduction post HERE Be sure to check out all my other Blogging On a Time Crunch Posts here: Day 1: Intro Day 2: Time Management (printables) Day 3: Essential Tools Day 4:  Ask a Blogger (spreadsheet secrets) Day 5: The One with all the Resources ———————————- Today I am going to talk to you about time management. And really the title should more about finding a system that works for your. Because everyone has the same amount of time. You can’t manage time. You can only manage yourself. And in order to manage yourself, to be at your most productive and effective, and happiest, you have to find your sweet spot. Also known as balance.  Find Your Balance The thing you have to remember is that balance is different for everyone. You have to find what works for you.  There is no right way to blog. (or plan, or work, or anything really.) The key is to know yourself, and know how… Read more »

{Discussion} #BloggingOnATimeCrunch : Introduction

{Discussion} #BloggingOnATimeCrunch : Introduction

Welcome to the start of my week long blogging event! Today is just an introduction to lay out what sparked my interest in creating this blogging series, and lay out what the week is going to look like. The Inspiration: I have been blogging for about 4 1/2 years now, and the one question that I never fail to get is “how do you find time to blog?”  I get it from my friends. From my family. And when readers/book lovers/ and followers of my blog do happen to ask me a question, it is always some variation of this. I always kind of just brushed it off with an, “Oh, I just read fast.” response. And that is true, I do read fast. But when I sat down to really think about it, I discovered it really is more than that. I couldn’t get everything done that I get done without my tools and process, and lots and lots of tips that I have picked up in various areas… Read more »

Exciting News!

In my blogging on a time crunch series, I mentioned that I use the tweak me theme to build my blog design. Well, Ashley, the creator of the tweak me theme, is running a contest for the blog that wears tweak me best. There are so many different ways you can use the theme and all the blogs that use it look totally different. ——————————– I just found out that I was nominated for who wears the tweak me theme best award! I’m not sure who nominated me but I am super excited, and I would love love love it if you could vote for my blog, Book Briefs! You can vote here.  (for any of the blogs. I won’t be upset if you vote for someone else. There are SO MANY beautiful options!) Thank you so much everyone! https://www.nosegraze.com/vote-tweak-me-design/ Thank you to whoever nominated me! That is beyond awesome 🙂

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? I was back to my normal reviewing schedule this week. Because of blogging on a time crunch, I was able to get a couple of books ahead of schedule, which was nice, but now I want to do even more! So I decided to participate in ARC August this week. You can check out my post HERE Other than that, things have been good. This was a particularly busy and hectic week at work, so I am looking forward to just kicking back and relaxing this weekend.* Side note: I am looking at new inspiration for a blog mini blog makeover. I figure if I am going to switch to tweak me v. 2 I should change some stuff up while I am at it. If you have any ideas or things that you love on blogs, let me know in the comments.

It totally blew my monthly ARC shelves (especially September 2015) to uncomfortably full proportions, but I am up for the challenge :p Books I got this week: *Thank you so much to Harper Collins, Macmillian, Swoon reads, Flux, Scholastic… Read more »
