Beyond the Books is a weekly meme where I throw out a prompt (mostly non-bookish), and we all blog about it. Come back here and share the link to your blog post. Then, we all have fun learning about each other.

I will be posted on the new topic every Thursday. Below I will list upcoming topics so you can schedule your blog posts ahead, (and don’t forget to come back and add your post to the linky so everyone who plays along can see it, too).

 I have been looking for a weekly feature that is not another review for a while. I found Life of a Blogger on a blog I love to stalk follow called Novel Heartbeat. Sadly, I caught on a bit too late. I only got to participate about three times before Jessi @Novel Heartbeat posted her last Life of a Blogger saying goodbye. So this idea is borrowed from her, (with permission). I am going to keep this feature on Thursdays like she had it.




January 4- Blogging Goals for 2018
January 11- List your most popular posts (why do you think they got so much love)
January 18- List some interesting posts you have read lately (loved or hated)
