First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope this new year brings you guys loads of awesomeness and you can all enjoy great books. I wanted to make a list of things that I am going to try to accomplish in 2012. There is so much I want to do/change this year in regards to reading and blogging.
1. Reading goals:
- I want to read 100 books this year. I set 100 books to read in 2011 but I only really started reading constantly in June so I got to about 65 books. This year should be a breeze to get to 100 :)
- Also, I didn't participate in any challenges last year. I think I'm going to stick to that this year but I will be attempting to read a dystopian book each month and 8-10 classics. I never read classics and I think it's time for that to end. (Plus my friend said she would haunt me if I didn't *shivers*)
- Another thing is that I want to read books that I bought in or before 2011. So my goal is to read a few of those each month. So by the end of the year I will have read at least 35 books off my shelves.
- I want to organize myself when it comes to the blog. I procrastinate like a lunatic. I am convinced that there is no one that procrastinates more than me and that needs to STOP (at least when it comes to the blog :P)
- I want to post more review. I am terrible at this because I read and then procrastinate and keep reading and in the end have 10 books that need reviews and zero reviews on the blog. I am going to start small. One review a week, then up to two and finally three reviews a week!
- I also want to do less memes and try to do more creative posts. Things like new releases each month, a feature for my favorite book of the month and links to where you can buy it, good book deals, and some discussion posts. Hopefully this goes well. But I will still be doing IMMs of course.
- I have a YouTube channel but I mainly just post IMM videos. I want that to change. I want to post more diverse videos like book chats and short story teasers and reviews.
- I would love to post video reviews.
- Also maybe do bookish tags.
- Become more involved in commenting on other book vloggers videos. I want to be able to meet others in that community.
- EXERCISE!!! I'm not unhealthy but I need to exercise this year :)
- Drink more water :P
