2016 Blogging Goals

January 1, 2016


Happy New Year! Now watch me fail writing the date as ’15 instead of ’16 for the next several months. Anyway, my first blogaversary will be here this March, and I thought this would be the perfect time to share some blogging goals I have for this year!

  • Read 100 books! (This is my annual Goodreads goal, and I hope to make it this year before December 31st rolls by.)
  • Read books I already own! (My shelf is overflowing with books I have yet to read. I want to change that this year and read the books I have bought in the past.)
  • Keep up on my ARC reviews! (Okay, confession time, I definitely fall behind with e-arcs and want to keep on schedule this year.)
  • Blog more consistently! (My blogging schedule was a mess this past semester. Hopefully, now that I have my first college semester under my belt, I will be able to figure out what works for me better and have at least one or two posts a week.)
  • Read more often! (Silly goal, I know, but during my first semester, I hardly found time to read for pleasure. I want to change that this year).
  • Attend more book events! (I loved the events I went to last year, and I hope I can attend more this year.)
  • Continue being apart of awesome Street Teams! (This was definitely a blogging highlight of 2015 and I hope to be apart of even more this year.)
  • Make blogging friends! (I’ve started making friends over the last couple months and I want to have more and closer blogging friendships.)
  • Comment more often! (Sometimes I will read blog posts and forget to comment. I’m changing that this year by leaving comments on the posts I visit.)

So what do you think? Seems like a lot of goals, but I think I can handle them! What are your blogging and/or reading goals for 2016? I want to know!

    During the semester, I always set time to read before bed- whether it’s for 20 minutes or a chapter. It makes such a difference! And it also helps your brain unwind. Good luck with all your goals this year 🙂

      That’s a great tip — I think I’m definitely going to try that out! And thank you! 🙂 Good luck with any goals you have for the new year!

    All great goals that I share with you (except I’m hoping to read 50 books)!

    Hi Jordan! Thank you so much for entering a response on the Commenting challenge…I’m so glad I discovered your blog and will definitely stop by for more! Your goals are really amazing (especially the read 100 books one) and I hope that you achieve them all! Much love <3

      Aw, thank you! <3 I hope you achieve any goals you have set for 2016 as well!

    Good luck with all your goals! My goal is to read 100 books too. I need to stop requesting eARCs as much. I request WAY too many. I hope you have a wonderful 2016!
    I just found your blog from Nori’s Commenting365 Challenge, and it is GORGEOUS! <3

    Ah, I always envy readers who can read up to 100 and above per year. I’m a total slowpoke. </3 Anyway, I can totally relate on most of your goals, especially the 2nd and 4th. Good luck with your goals!

    PS, discovered your blog through Nori's list. 🙂 #Commenting365

      I’m definitely jealous of readers who are able to read so many books to! I was only able to reach 100 books because I counted short stories and novellas towards my goal on Goodreads. Good luck with your goals as well!
