As you may know, I made a Goals of 2019 post earlier this year. I had two blogging goals and two reading goals. I’m going to try breaking down these goals by month to help keep me on track.
Reading Goal: Finish 2 Books
So last month, I read The Poet X and Dear Martin. I finished them both before school started and I loved them. Since school has started up again, I haven’t had as much time to focus on a single book. I keep starting one and then stopping, then picking up a completely different book.
All this to say, I’m hoping to finish at least two books this month.
The main reason I’ve been able to keep posting while in school is because of the amazingness that is the scheduling tool. I’ve had at least six posts scheduled at any given time but lately, I’ve been too busy to create posts. I’m hoping to keep my page fresh with new posts this month.
I also want to keep up with the Two for Tuesday tag. Make sure to join if you’re interested.
Bookstagram Goal: Post 3X a Week
I’ve been slacking with my bookstagram for the past week or so. Truth be told, I need to take more pictures. I’m probably going to have another book photo shoot pretty soon. Make sure to follow my page on the sidebar.
Personal Goal: Keep Track of my Planner
I need to work on getting my life reorganized. I currently have four classes, two part-time jobs, and three organizations I’m part of at my University. I definitely need to make a few changes and get my life together.
This year started out pretty well as far as blogging goes. I posted daily for the first two weeks straight and I still posting quite regularly after that. I published a total of 27 posts this month!
Blogging Goals Update:
Earlier this month, I posted my Reading + Blogging Goals for the year. So far, I’ve been doing really well with the blogging goals. I’ve been posting pretty consistently. I’m hoping to keep that consistency going.
I also started my Bookstagram. My username is Raethereviewer if you want to follow me. You can also find it on the sidebar of my blog. Make sure to comment on a post for a follow back!
So these past two weeks, I’ve been posting end of the week recaps. I had been posting daily during that week. It wasn’t even on purpose, it just kind of happened. This week, I didn’t post on Wednesday, so that ended the 14+ day streak.
I think I’ll still post these at the end of busy weeks.
I know last week I said that I wouldn’t be keeping up with this whole posting every day thing. I don’t know how, but it happened again. I posted for another week straight. That’s two consecutive weeks of posts!
It may not seem like a big deal, but this is the most active I’ve been in my near four years of having this blog. This is also my first week back in school, so I’ve somehow managed to keep writing posts while trying to figure out which classes to keep and which to drop.
I’m sure this streak is going to end pretty soon, but until then, here’s a recap of this week’s post. Let me know if you like these weekly recaps so I can keep doing them, even when I don’t post every day. Click the links to check them out.
I know I’m super late on the trend. I’ve been reading a bunch of other bloggers’ goals for the year and it left me inspired. This year, I’m going to set four major goals for myself. Two for reading, two for blogging.
