Top Ten Tuesday – Bookish Goals for 2016

The Top Ten Resolutions Goals for 2016
from the Broke and the Bookish


I don’t have many bookish related goals, but the ones I have are:

  1. Read more. Last year I didn’t do a very good job of keeping up with my reading. This year I plan to do a better job of it. I have a lot of books I want to get through.
  2. Finish the Back to Classics Challenge. I found this challenge last year and was unable to complete it. Actually, I never even got a running start. You can find my list here.
  3. Complete the TBR Triple Dog Dare. I found this dare a month or two ago and signed up right away because it’s the last time James is hosting it. Continue reading

Blogging 201 – My Blogging Goals

I signed up for WordPress’ Blogging 201. I keep saying that I’m going to whip this blog into shape and by golly, I’m going to do it. I’ve done a lot of revamping and overall I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out.

Here are my three most immediate goals

Stick to my blogging schedule. I have a blogging schedule, which is quite doable; but I just haven’t been consistent with it. So, for next year my number one goal is to become a more consistent blogger.

  • Top Ten Tuesday
  • Wednesday’s Lyrics
  • The Friday 56
  • The 2nd and 4th Saturday post a review

Promote and get 5 to 10 participants for Wednesday’s Lyrics by December 31st. I started Wednesday’s Lyrics because I thought it was a good idea. Actually, I still do and again consistency is my issue nor have I promoted it.

Write Reviews that don’t sound so academic-like. As a former Literature major and English teacher, I always find myself struggling with writing review that sounds like I’m writing a reach paper versus a review that will encourage someone to read it.

So these are my three immediate goals.
