Top Ten Goals/Resolutions For 2015

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I love making a list of goals/resolutions each year even though I know from the start that I’ll fail spectacularly! I make them anyway just because I like making lists and I won’t give up hope that I’ll accomplish some of the goals.

 

Blogging goals:

  1. Comment more
    I already had this on my list year and I actually commented more, at least at the beginning of the year. Then came my blogging slump and I nearly left no comments at all. I already started to comment more again but I want to get better still.
  2. Discover new blogs
    I already follow a ton of blogs but I like finding new ones and connecting with new book bloggers.
  3. Schedule more/plan more in advance
    I’m already working on this one. I just want to be prepared for times when I don’t have a lot of time for blogging. I don’t want my blog to be all quiet during those times.
  4. Improve my NG ratio
    This is actually pretty hard because I requested so many books when I started, books which I don’t feel like reading anymore but we’ll see.
  5. Be more careful with what books I get from Edelweiss
    I tend to download a lot of books without really thinking about it and often ended up reading books I didn’t like. I’m usually pretty good at choosing books for me, I just need to stop clicking that download button so quick.
  6. Review more books
    Thanks to my long blogging slump I mostly reviewed the books I actually got for review but I want to do better next year and review more of the books which I read for myself.

 

Reading goals:

  1. Finish two series for every series I start
    This is going to be a real challenge but I already made a long list of series I could finish in 2015. I hope that helps.
  2. Binge-read more series
    I love reading  a whole series within days, one book right after the other and I already picked out a few I want to read in 2015
  3. Reduce my TBR
    Same procedure as every year…
  4. Reread at least one book each month

 

Did you set yourself some goals too? If so which ones?
