Resolutions and goals are posts that we are often hit with a lot in January and it comes as no surprise to see it as a prompt for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (since this week hosted over on That Artsy Reader Girl). I struggled with it a little though as I already wrote a post sharing my 2018 reading goals. And I have no urge to share any personal resolutions at the moment. It makes them not happen, haha.
These are some things that are on my mind but I did not want to make a big goal. I just don’t want to drown in goals throughout the year. But I do have these in the back of my mind. Others are things I am in no way actively working towards but would be nice, you know.
- Hit a 1000 followers on WP for my blog.
- Hit a 1000 followers on my bookstagram.
- Hit a
100150 followers on bloglovin’.
I know we always say that numbers don’t matter and I still stand behind that. But seeing some progress through them is nice. I don’t however work towards these as a goal. If they happen it will be great. But if they don’t, then that is fine too. I hit the 100 just around the change of the year for bloglovin’ so that is cool I guess.
- Post reviews on a retail site for review copies at least.
I have mentioned before that I can’t post reviews on Amazon as I would have to purchase over 50 Dollars on there. But I have been assured that this is not the case for Barnes and Noble.Apparently Wordery is very easy to use as well. And I know that reviews on retail sites are very valuable for authors. So I want to make a bit more effort on that portion. As time allows it anyway.
- I don’t have to review all the books I read.
Read further explanation here.
- Reread more books if I feel like it.
Sometimes I do want to reread books but I feel bogged down by all the unread books I have in my possession. So I do not end up doing that. But I want to give it more of a chance.
- Read all the books gifted at Christmas 2017.
Sometimes we get all these books and there they end up on the big stack as we go to all the other books.
- Read pre-orders within 2 months.
I guess this one is clear. I pre-order books, and while I did read a bunch of them last year, I also did not get around to a bunch of them. So I need to be more selective and make more of a point to read them when getting them. I don’t pre-order them for nothing…
