It’s check-in time for my Netgalley update. Back in January I celebrated my 7 year blog anniversary and introduced a new individual challenge I am taking part in. I had picked 25 books on the Netgalley queue that I planned to read to help my Netgalley feedback ratio. It isn’t as easy as I expected.
There has been no change in 2 months to my Netgalley Bingo card. And if I’m honest there probably won’t be any change in December. For some reason I am not in the mood to read the final 3 books. But it’s okay. It is okay if I don’t finish because these were my rules all a long and I can consider this a success if I want to and I want to. Who knows, I may change my mind this month, nut even if I don’t I did great and I’m okay with that.
On the other side of things, I am CRUSHING my plan to get my Feedback Ratio up. When I started this journey it was 11ish days into 2020 so I had been updating from the 11th to the 11th every month. I decided to skip October in a way and do two months at once so I would be on track for the 1st to the 30th/31st every month (I know, I should have done this months ago). Anyway in that time I have hit my goal. I wanted to get my feedback ration to to 75% and I have accomplished it. In January I was at 57%. It is hard to believe that I pulled this off, but I have and I am going to do my hardest to keep it this way or improve on it.
Do you have a Netgalley? How has your feedback ratio been treating you? Do you find it hard to not request anything?
