Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015 — bookish, blogging or otherwise!
Okay, so it’s no secret that lately I have let my blog slip. So, here are my goals and resolutions for 2015!
1) Make better use of the schedule post facility.
This way, I can make sure that my blog doesn’t slip when I’m super busy.
2) Respond to and check emails / facebook messages more frequently.
I know I’m really bad at this. I had so many plans when I first started this blog, but then I was only receiving a few emails every day. I desperately want to give everyone a chance, but I can definitely see why many reviews only accept requests for a short amount of time.
3) Make more of an effort to find new blogs
I try to browse new blogs from time to time, but I usually only do so when someone I am already following reblogs something. I intend to do more to help new bloggers in the new year.
4) Not go over my book budget.
This is something I really need to get a grip on. Being a student is hard enough, let alone when buying things I don’t necessarily need!
5) Work through my to-be-read list before buying new books.
This is sort of linked to the goal above but I felt it needed its own space! My to-be-read list is never-ending at the minute, and I’d hate to have to start turning people down
6) Catch up on reviews and blog posts that I need to write.
I have a few drafts and notes saved but usually pass them over for something new!
7) Make better use of my Goodreads profile.
I do use goodreads, and I am an active member in a few forums, but I really should make better use of my shelves and the widgets available on WordPress.
8) Comment on more blogs.
I tend to ‘like’ posts, but not really comment on them. I hope to change this in 2015!
9) Reformat old posts.
Because my blog is still less than a year old, I have made many changes. I really need to go back and edit old posts so it’s all consistent!
10) Learn to use Twitter more effectively.
I use it for sharing my posts and
stalking following authors, but I’d like to learn to use it more effectively and have actual conversations!
So, that’s it! These are my goals and resolutions for 2015. What are yours? Let me know!
