After missing February’s monthly review I began to question, are posts on what I accomplished in said month really necessary? It is time intensive linking to all reviews and bookish happenings during the month. It may be just me but these posts can be an emotional roller coaster (of which I hate) if I read a plethora of novels in that time period I feel a sense of pride but if not enough I feel it is a whole 30 days wasted.
I have been debating as to whether I should just drop the posts all together, they can be a bother and occasionally feel like they are something I have to do, becoming a chore. I have a page for all my reviews anyway, which is much easier to keep track of and probably the most important, seeing as how this is a book blog. I have actually been considering doing mid-year updates, while the linkage may be the same I believe I could do a better overview of any accomplishments made and probably more detailed instead of just throwing a couple links on the post.
So what are your thoughts do? Do you indulge in some sort of progress report? (weekly, monthly etc) Is it truly a necessary to a book blog or does it just clog your Google Reader?
On a side note, this was not a post to judge those who do partake in this exercise, as I really do enjoy seeing other’s monthly progress; I am merely curious as to whether it adds or takes away from the blogging experience.
