I know I'm kind of late getting this post up, but oh hell I don't have a reason really.
I'm hoping I can stick with these all year. So far I think I'm doing pretty good.
Except for maybe the 5th one because well I'm late on getting this one up.
- Read the books I've started in the past, but put down for reasons un-known.
This is a big one for me because I hate, hate to DNF books. I say I don't DNF books I just put them aside for a long break. This year I want to actually get back to them. Some of those books are The Scorpio Races, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Delirium, the duff, and I'm sure there are a few others.
- Comment, Comment, Comment
I know that this one is probably on everyone's list. I know it's ALWAYS on my list, year after year. I feel like it is part of being a blogger though, and trying to get your site out there. I just feel like I repeat my self a lot, and when I comment I want it to be somewhat meaningful and not generic. I read a post awhile back which got me thinking on it too. The post is by Kelly at Effortlessly Reading. Go take a look at it. Now when I comment I tend to look at it for a minute and see if it's something I would find meaningful and would be glad that someone took the time to actually type out what they are thinking.
- Write my reviews for books right after I finish reading them
I use to do this a lot when I first started my blog. I would read the book, and then sit down and write. It was easier that way, and I was able to review every book I read because I didn't forget what happened. Last year, I'll admit was a pretty bad blogging and reviewing year for me. I barely kept up with reading, and what I did read I barely reviewed. So this year I want to go back to how I was when I first started.
- Keep up with my challenges
Again this is something I do every year. I sign up for challenges, and the rest of the year I pretty much ignore them. I really want to try this year to keep up with all the ones I signed up for. Maybe, by doing this I will get more books read. I said maybe.
- Be a better blogger
I think I've started off bad for this one because this post is going up a little late. Starting now though I really want to do better at the whole blogging thing then I did the past year or so. When I started I was really good I posted things daily. I kept up with stuff, but then I found (or he found me) my darling husband, Ryan in 2011, and then I had someone. I had a life outside of my computer. While I loved that...being someones someone my little blog here paid the price for it. I think now that my wedding and everything is over I can return to it. Ryan, knows how much I love books. Our bedroom kind of speaks for me. lol! Hopefully, I'll get back in the groove of things here.
Are some of your '14 goals the same as mine? How are you doing with them so far? Let me know!
