New Year's Blogging Resolution

I cannot believe it is the New Year already. A whole new year of seemingly endless possibilities! Of new books, new posts, new blogging experiences... I can't wait! I am so excited for this year, which is why I decided to do a New Year's Resolution.

My Resolution

1)  Read 150 books:  But not only to read 150 books but to review them too. This will be my first complete year of blogging, so I don't know how reasonable this is but I'm going to try. And hopefully succeed.
2) Make blogger friends: I want to get out there in the blogging community and "meet" more bloggers. Basically I want to get more involved in the blogging community, which means finding blogs, commenting on blogs, and hopefully making new friends this way.
3) Post 20+ discussions: I am ashamed to say I only posted 1 discussion last year. So I would like to get thinking by posting discussions and maybe get other people thinking too.

4)Receive book review requests: To me this is the sign of an accomplished blog. I would love to have people actually want me to review their books. I mean, what could be better?

5)Create my own meme: This is a goal I have in mind. I most likely won't create one until the summer when I have a stable blogging foundation.

6)Be generous: I want to host a lot more giveaways this year. I love giving so honestly the generous part isn't too big of a problem. It's the money. I think I can handle it, though.

7) Post, post, post!: My goal is to post something every day. Yes, every day. I am fully committed to doing this. The only reason it wouldn't happen would be if things outside of my control occurred.

8) Blog Hops: I would love to participate in blog hops this year. They seem like so much fun and a great way to promote books.

9) Challenges: I'm participating in a ton of challenges this year, which shouldn't be a problem with the amount of reading I plan on doing. Just click the2013 Challenges tab at the top of my website to view them.

10) Decorating: It should come as no surprise that I want a good theme for my blog. I want my blog to be nice to look at.

11) Book Signings: I would love to go to book signings and meet authors.

 I have a lot to do this year! A lot! But I plan on doing it all. Which means I'd better get started. Feel free to comment about your resolutions.


  1. You have some good ones listed here. I share your resolution on making more blogging friends, and doing some more blog hops or bookblasts! My reading goal is 200 books.

    1. Oh, I'm glad you think so :) Yeah definitely. It would be great if we could both do that! Ooh, nice! 50 more than me ;) I hope you meet it!

  2. Those are some excellent goals! :) Happy new year.

    1. Thank you! Happy new year (I'm more than a bit late... sorry :/)
