What the future will hold…
2013 will be quite a different year from 2012. In the spring I’ll be taking a 5 month long certification course that I know is going to take up a lot of my time (and energy). I’d like to think I’ll be able to read a book a week, but I’m not sure that’s going to be a possibility, it’ll all depend on the time I have to put into this course. During these early months I’ll also be blogging less and probably commenting less. I have the opportunity to both blog and comment while at work so as long as work isn’t too crazy I should be able to keep up with commenting, as well as write my blog posts.
2013 Blogging Goals
With the exception of the week right after BEA I’ve kept up with 2 reviews a week and 3 other posts. I know there is no way I can do this in the spring, I’d like to do 1 review a week but if I don’t get one in I’m not going to freak out about it. It’s ok.
2. Post my reviews to Goodreads
I am absolutely terrible at this! I’m usually ahead in reviews and I don’t post them on Goodreads until after I post them on my blog which means that I forget. I think to make it easier I’m going to make a point of writing a few thoughts on the book at the same time that I finished it.
3. Strive for a 50/50 balance
I’d like to read 50/50 YA/Adult books but since I’ll be reading less in the beginning of the year I’m sure it’ll be heavier on the YA books. I know I definitely want to read a 50/50 balance of series/standalones. While I enjoy series books, sometimes I just want to have a real ending when I finish a book.
4. The Challenges
I’m participating in 4 challenges this year, but I’m not going to freak out if I don’t finish them (cause really, I didn’t finish most of them this year).
Goodreads Challenge – 60 books
The A to Z Reading Challenge (I’m hosting this one. Check it out here!)
The Christopher Pike Reading Challenge
What’s in a Name 6 Challenge
Depending on how the year goes odds are not in my favor of success in all the challenges, but again, I’m ok with that. The fun is in trying to meet the Challenge.
