Out With The Old: January 2014
Some Quick Facts:
- Books Read: Only 2!
- Books Reviewed: 8
- Favorite Book Read: Kissed by a Dark Prince by Felicity Heaton
- Favorite Post: Life of a Blogger: Craziest Thing You’ve Ever Done
I started participating in a couple of memes in 2014: Life of a Blogger and Top off Tuesday. I had a blast with them and although I’ve stopped doing Life of a Blogger (simply because of time) and only do Top off Tuesday once or so a month, they’re still reading highlights for me 🙂
I also set a bunch of goals for 2014 in one of my Fun Questions posts and I’ve even managed to keep a few of them 😉
In With The New: Goal #1
One of the goals I made last year was to keep blogging fun and I want it to ALWAYS be goal #1 for me. Blogging has been such an amazing adventure for me – I’ve met so many great people and discovered so many great books because of blogging and I want to always keep it that way.
To that end, I’m not going to be so strict or hard on myself. I will always be a calendar and schedule ahead kind of girl – it’s just who I am. But I’m not going to insist that I have a set schedule of what kind of post should go up each day. I’m not going to insist that a post go up EVERY day.
One thing I really let stress me out this year has been keeping up with comments. As much as I want to reply to them all, I’m just going to reply to what I can. I may not get to them all – I probably won’t. It won’t mean that I don’t appreciate them, it just means I’m not stressing myself.
In fact, I’m going to take a break every month or so, just to make sure I don’t get stressed out. Blogging is fun for me and hopefully it will never stop being fun 🙂
Do you remember January? What goals did you set & have you kept them?
