2018 Bookish and Blogging Goals
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Each week they post a new Top Ten list that members at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone join as you please. This week’s topic is Bookish Resolutions/Goals.
While I don’t like setting major goals for myself. Little goals are great. They keep me motivated and wanting to strive for more. So today I thought I would share my bookish and blogging goals for 2018.
Read More Adult: In 2017 I read a whole lot of romance. And I loved it. And in 2018 I really want to read more adult books, from fantasy to crime fiction. I love my YA – but I work in a bookstore and reading adult fiction would really help me a whole lot more.
Read More Widely: This is connected to the above goal. While I do want to read more adult, I also want to read more widely. I want to read more nonfiction, historical, and things that I would not normally turn to.
Read Over 100 books: In 2017 I read over 170 books, and I really hope that in 2018 I can reach over 100 again. I love reading so many books and it makes me so happy when I reach 100 books.
Finish More Series: Another thing that I would really love to do in 2018 is finish more series. Obviously not the ones that are still going. But those that I have started and have been completed. The Darker Shade of Magic trilogy for example.
Reduce my TBR: This is probably the one that’s most likely not going to happen. Or it will and then I will buy more books. I was doing really well book buying last year, and then I started my job and it went out the window. So I would really love to create a dint in the books that I have this year.
Be Consistent: One of the things that I really struggled with, in 2017 on the blog was consistency. And while it wasn’t my fault as health and life got in the way. I really want to be more consistent in 2018. I want to have 2-3 posts a week, every week. I’ve been pretty good so far this year and I want to stand by that.
Interact More: At the end of 2017, I really lacked in both blogging and interacting with readers. But I really want to build that again this year. Not only does it help my blog, but I will also find out about new books, and read about others’ thoughts on books I love and dislike.
Take More Photos: Another thing I lacked in 2017 was photos. While I did take a lot of photos of my books. It wasn’t enough. My Instagram lacked and I just want it to look nice and pretty. Hopefully, I can take more in 2018.
Find New Bloggers: Along with interacting more with blogs, I really want to find new bloggers this year. And that’s why I love things like TTT. It’s a way to find new blogs that might become my favourite.
And that is it for this post! What are your bookish goals for 2018? Do we share any that’s the same? Let’s Chat!
