Bloggiesta Week!

You know what is coming up?  Well, Spring Break...we aren't going anywhere this year due to my husband's work schedule, so I can do BLOGGIESTA WEEK!

So, the way this works is that I'll have a week to improve my blog however I want.  I really don't have too much that I want to do it, but I what I would like to do is rather labor-intensive.  On my docket is:

  • Revise my review index
  • Change my rating scheme
Let's take a closer look:
Revise my review index
Right now, it's just a list of books that links to the reviews,  It really isn't very user-friendly for someone who is trying to find something to read.  My plan, and we'll see how it goes, is to do a list by genre.  I'm not sure how it will look, but I'm hoping it will be more effective

Change my rating scheme
Right now, I do a 5 star rating scheme.  For the past year, I've stuck to "whole" stars, but before that I would award half stars.  I've really come to hate it, to tell you the truth.  Yes, I'll still be awarding a star rating when I cross-post my reviews to Goodreads, Amazon, and Powell's, but I want to do something else here.

What I'm thinking of is this:
Highly Recommended
Recommended for.... (e.g., people who like lighter reads, people interested in such and such, etc).
Not Recommended

And, because I want to be hard on myself, I am planning to go back and apply this too all my past reviews, which number over 200.

So, those are my plans.  Any input would be welcome, since I'm not really sure how I'm going to achieve these!
