I’m always trying to make this blog better, and I especially want to avoid getting stale, blogging by numbers, ticking boring boxes that I put in my own way. So this year I thought I’d try a slightly new style: monthly themes.

Each month I’m going to pick a theme (be it a writer, an occasion, a genre, anything that captures my imagination) and tailor my reading and my blog posts around it. Of course, there’ll still be the weekly book reviews every Friday – it’s called 50ayear for a reason – but I think having a theme will help me to focus my mind and (hopefully) write more interesting posts for you!

So, in the spirit of Valentine’s season, my blog’s theme for February will beĀ love.



I have previously talked about giving 50ayear a visual revamp. I was hoping to get the redesign done in time for my third blogiversary in February, but the beginning of this year has ended up being CRAZY busy, so that will have to wait a little. Still, I’m determined 2015 will see a new look for this blog – it just might take some time!

Here’s to a fresh approach.

If there’s anything you’d particularly like to see from 50ayear, do let me know. I’m always happy to read your suggestions!
