Welcome to my post for #TeamLilac! (We're the best. Admit it. You know it.) Our team decided to make a bucket list! (Because we all have ambitions.) And we call it...When We Aren't Lazy! (Even though I typically am. I'm a sloth. No no. I'm a potato.)

The objective of this project is to create an ultimate bucket list - created and compiled by all the team members, which will motivate us all to blog more efficiently and achieve our blogging goals.
Bloggers in the team can set their own variations and limits to the list. As they complete each task, they strike it off from their list, while discussing and sharing their progress throughout the month of October.

We’ve also planned to help each other in the most possible way - by sharing tips and working together. The goal is to obtain our blogging resolutions while keeping it fun.
While you're at it, check out the rest of my lovely team.

My Bucket List: 

-Cross Post all reviews ( GR, Amazon): I really suck at this, so I got to hop to it. And I have some books that I got as ARCs that can't be posted on Amazon until later, and by then, I forget. YEAH.
-Get ahead on posts: Regarding reviews, I'm like at the end of October. Regarding discussions and Wren Rewrites and The Connection? Barely making it.
-Blog hop weekly: Not sure how my laziness is going to let me do this. I CAN TRY. I'm not even sure what blog hops I can do. Yikes. I need to meet more bloggers and find more blog hops.
-Use more photography in posts: My photographs suck. I have two options: my phone or my iPad. And my iPad is an iPad 4, given to me by my school. The quality is meh at best. I can't always trust my Mi3 either! So my photos suck.
-ALWAYS double-check and triple-check posts for spelling, grammar, etc: I actually try to edit, but it gets hard sometimes. Not enough time and all.
-Make a dent in my Netgalley pile: I can do this. Sorta....maybe... -looks around- Kinda? And it's not like my Netgalley is anything special. It's only twenty books long. Plus, it's hard to read ebooks and tangible books. I can't have both.
-Make new friends & interact more with other blogs: I'm trying, but I'm not social. And my humor is quirky at best and dry at worst. Plus, I like sticking with my friends. (You know who you are.)
-Engage more in twitter: I try to go to #RQWN, but my WiFi sucks. That means no Twitter chats for Wren. Sobs...
-Reply and comment back on all the comments without fail: I DON'T GET COMMENTS, SO THIS IS EASY.
-Try to manage time between blogging, reading, school and life efficiently: Which is hard for me. I'm in Calculus (and currently failing, thanks for asking!) And it's hard to study for my tests and all AND blog AND read. I end up blogging on weekends mostly, and even then, I'm studying too.
-Host at least one guest writer on the blog: Which I should do more often. I do a LOT of interviews, though. SO YEAH.
-Try out more bookish challenges: I can try this. Definitely. But I'm mostly trying to update my challenges. Which I haven't done in a while. WHOOPS.

So there you go. My bucket list and my excuses to go along with it.


  1. Cross-posting your reviews on other sites like Goodreads is a great way to boost your blog's traffic~ Plus, it gets your name out there too because most readers flock to Goodreads than blogs, because all of the reviews are on there. Amazon is kinda shitty though so I don't feel as obligated to post there. Haha! And my Netgalley ratio is getting up but still not as high as I would like :/ I'm at 65% I think?? But hey, I'll get there!! Eventually! As you will ;)
