Today's activity is for you to come up with goals for your reading and blogging life. Below you can see our examples. Be sure to create a blog post and come back to link it to the Simply Linked below.
1. Blog EVERYDAY!!!
I fall behind and then it becomes overwhelming. I need to have something posted every day. Even if I have to resort to some mini-reviews. I might start working in some shorter books too. I'd love to participate in #bookaday, but I know that would be a total crash and burn for me.
2. Read 200 books.
For the last several years I've hovered around the 115 mark. This year I might make it to 130, but that is if I really hustle. My goal this year was 150 so I didn't make it so why in the world do I think I can do 200? Crazy I guess.
3. Learn PhotoShop or some other photo manipulating software.
I'd love to be one of those people who creates blog designs or cool buttons. I'd like to find a class to take so I can get instruction with hands-on practice. I know that sounds kind of nerdy, but so far, experimenting on my own hasn't resulted in much success.
Oh wow! This is always a hard one for me. People always come up with such lofty goals and then I feel like a slug because I can't come up with anything exciting.
1. I too would like to increase my reading and blogging. I found this year that I slowed down significantly starting in August. I guess I need to spread my Christmas crafting out through the whole year instead of cramming it all in between August and December. I would like to reach 150 in 2012. That seems modest, but considering that I haven't gotten past 120 this year it has potential of being a reachable goal.
2. I would like to be more faithful to blogs that I love. I seem to be on the computer a lot during the day but still miss out on going to visit the blogs that I love. On the opposite of that I would like to weed my bookmarks of blogs that I no longer am interested in keeping up with. BUT I would also like to find new blogs that capture my interest. Hmmm, I never thought I was ADD but maybe that is why I'm having trouble keeping up!
I think I'll keep the goals at 2 that way I can maybe keep up with them.
